Growing Your Hair Out? Try This Brushed Back Side Part (Using Sea Salt Spray)

446 ratings | 28360 views
Thinking about growing your hair out? After rocking some variation of the undercut (short on the sides and back, long on top) for the past couple of years, I've been growing my hair out for about two months now. I've gotten a couple of cleanups to keep the neck line and ears nice and sharp, but my hair is longer than it's been in a long time (about six inches on the top/front). With hair this long, you can't really do the normal side part, where you follow the natural swirl/crown of your head. Instead, you have to brush it all toward the back of your head. To style my hair with this method, I like using something lighter than pomade or putty. In this case, I'm using sea salt spray, which works really well (especially after it dries). I'll also use some stronger product, like paste, to help glue down the sides. — SHOP THE VIDEO ▪ Sea Salt Spray: http://mdst.mn/2dET0an ▪ Tank Top: http://geni.us/lTkng ▪ Shirt: http://mdst.mn/2kToJb3 (similar) ▪ Watch: http://geni.us/oE8zH — VIDEOS MENTIONED ▪ Video 1 → link ▪ Video 2 → link — WHAT I'M WEARING ▪ Shirt → link ▪ Watch → link ▪ Other → link — MY GEAR ▪ Canon T6i → http://geni.us/4kSX ▪ Laptop → http://fave.co/2hgKaDF ▪ Laptop stand → http://fave.co/2vQwBj3 ▪ Lens #1 (50mm) → http://geni.us/OiE9 ▪ Lens #2 (10-18mm) → http://geni.us/qgGQckE ▪ Lens #3 (24mm) → http://geni.us/x61A ▪ Lav mic → http://geni.us/ZBlvGh ▪ Desk mic → http://geni.us/wCdS7t2 — YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — STYLE GUIDES ▪ Free E-Books → http://mdst.mn/guide-pack ▪ Premium Guide → http://mdst.mn/tmmsg — FOLLOW ME ▪ Podcast → http://fave.co/2vej94M ▪ Instagram → https://www.instagram.com/modestmanstyle/ ▪ Twitter → https://twitter.com/modestmanstyle ▪ Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/modestmanblog/ ▪ Private Group → https://www.facebook.com/groups/modestmen — Contains affiliate links // Stay stylish!

If I want to achieve this look do I still go in to get my neck hair trimmed and blend up the sides?
Ali Sheikh (5 months ago)
It will be great if you make a new video about your hair style since it has changed and you’re rocking that look. Plus if you have any tips for wavy hair, I would love hear that from you, as I’m growing my hair out and it has been quite sometime now, but I’m still struggling, that awkward phases keeps hunting me :\ Love the content you post. Keep up the good work 👍🏼

Yes, thanks for the video dude!

nice video...really like the hairstyle
Frank S (1 year ago)
You have really nice hair! I prefer longer hair to short hair because there are more ways to style it. I get bored with having the same hairstyle every day. In general, people get shorter haircuts or have less hair as they get older. Since youth is considered more attractive than old age, having longer hair makes a person (man or woman) appear younger and more attractive.

I agree. A change is good sometimes. I've gotten impatient with growing out though and gone back to undercut. I might just try again. Thanks. M

Uhhhhhh. Sry it's just that normally I talk at up to 70-80 words per minute

I really love this kind of hair stylee.. thanks for sharing.. i used to called it a slick back look. but, i use product like pomade to tame my outrageous hair, cause my hair tend to be super dry.
RadioactiveX (2 years ago)
Will any sea spray do? I ordered a Toni & Guy Men's Messy Salt Spray from eBay. I wonder if it is any good. Also, did you use the sea spray every time when you were on your long hair days?
Jay Thomas (2 years ago)
Have you had good luck with pete and pedro stuff? I find all the products get super tacky by the end of the day.
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
I agree that it's not the best stuff in the world, but then again, it's not the most expensive stuff either. I do think it's a good value for the price.
Jay Thomas (2 years ago)
I think I have some of that I'll have to give it another try
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
+Jay Thomas I don't like all of their stuff, but some of it works really well for me. The putty is great for really short hair.

Perfect Brock! I am currently growing my hair too. Now it is 1.5inches going to 3inches
Roger Ramirez (2 years ago)
Hey buddy! been following the modest man for a while now and im glad you posted this. I read somewhere that short men should not grow out their hair but screw it i have like 3 months and i feel great. Im planning to grow it out for a year with some regular visits to the barber. Im really tired of undercuts and fades everywhere so i want something different. Keep the good job!
Roger Ramirez (2 years ago)
Oh thanks for helping out! the back label says "No NaCl added"
Samuel Stephens (2 years ago)
Roger Ramirez You probably are referring to sulfate. It's what gives shampoo suds. People who grow their hair out will avoid shampoos with sulfate in them because they strip away a lot of the natural oils that keeps hair looking "healthy."
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
+Roger Ramirez hmm do they say "salt" free or something else (like sulphate)? I haven't heard anything about salt being bad for hair).
Roger Ramirez (2 years ago)
One more thing buddy, i been using a sea salt based paste but i have seen several conditioners and shampoos that say "salt free" on their label. Is salt bad for hair in any form?
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
I feel the same way man! Keep me updated on your progress.

The Modest Man (2 years ago)
It's definitely a wealthy-looking haircut. Funny because pretty much anyone can do it. Just goes to show the power of controlling your image.

What kind of Style are you trying to grow your hair into?
Andrew Clark (2 years ago)
The Modest Man, If you want to you could try a classic 50s pomp.
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
Not really sure. I was thinking about letting it grow for a few months. But short hair is much easier to maintain. Are there any particular styles you'd like to see or are considering for yourself?

No Tiege Hanley here? kinda sad :(
The Modest Man (2 years ago)

with your hair down, you look like with teeth-era trent reznor. also, i've been growing my hair out for nearly a year and i use a variation of this styling. i let it fall over my ears though
Trixa Turmoil (2 years ago)
Boy, you are one lucky dude to have such great hair! Mine looks like a bunch of sad trees during harsh autumn weather...
Mitesh Jesani (2 years ago)
you really look like Michael Scott
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
I'll take that as a compliment.
EricsMode (2 years ago)
Wow that looks really nice, I want to try using Sea Salt Spray. I have a couple of questions does the product have a smell, do you have to wash your hair after at night , and what does your hair look like that next day?
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
It has a very mild scent. It's plesasant...kind of citrus-y (it has grapefruit extract). My gf loves the smell. I shower once a day but only use shampoo every other day (and I don't use much). It looks okay the next day but a shower is needed.

Buddy What happened about the giveaway, have you contacted the Anson Belts company?

It's up to them, my friend!

How I'm styling my hair after two months growth, using sea salt spray. Enjoy! (P.S. Do you like the music in the background of my videos or not?)
Moneynis (2 years ago)
I don't mind the music but i prefer no music, but that's just my opinion.
scottembler (2 years ago)
I liked the music. To each their own.
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
What kind of music do you like?
PAKSHAL SHAH (2 years ago)
The Modest Man You shall have a music, but definitely not the current one. No offence, but I didn't like it.
The Modest Man (2 years ago)
Is it the type of music, or having music at all?
