In this video I outline the steps to how men can style their medium to long hair by using natural pomade.
Step 1: Towel dry.
Step 2: Wait a minute or two.
Step 3: Apply a fingertip's worth amount of pomade after rubbing it in your hands to release the oils.
Step 4: Apply evenly to front, top, sides, back, and underside of your hair.
Step 5: Look fly as hell.
Added Tip: Run your hands through it half an hour or so after styling for a more textured look!

rick guillermo same bro, I just started around 3 months ago. I’m in the awkward stage and ima tell you it’s a pain in the ass but everyday it gets easier to style my sides and back. Just don’t give up and end up getting a cut 🤦🏻♂️ I almost cut my hair I would’ve regretted it 😂
Brandon Stiltner if you’re going to grow your hair the first 5 months your hair will look dreadful because the sides get to an awkward stage. So the best thing you can do is start growing the top and as it gets to the awkward stage ask your barber to thin the sides so they look less bulky.
Brandon Stiltner honestly it’s about maintenance. I had an undercut, connected, when I started growing it out. It’s just about seeing your stylist every 3 months to blend it and shape it during the growing process.
During your hair growing phase, from the disconnected undercut like you mentioned in one of your comments to this length, did you get any trims or texturing done to your hair? Texturing to reduce hair volume & make the hair more manageable.
Hi, I’m from Toronto too! Question: my hair is extremely similar to yours, but it grows naturally to the front. I’ve tried a lot of products over the years to get the hair slicked back and lasting for a full day, but the only thing that I’ve got working for my is using the strongest got2be gel, which is almost like glue, and lots of it. It’s bad for the hair and the hair is rock solid too, which sucks. Do you have any alternative to suggest that would be strong enough to last more than a couple of hours?
Yes I do! Try Powermade from slikhaarshop.com but mind you it ain't cheap lol and I also like their Gold Digger. Depends if you want shine or not. Matte look go with Gold Digger, for a bit more shine go with Powermade
Do u have any tips for me. When my hair is towell dry and I let it just air dry t curls up alit and doesn't flow back to what I'm looking for, my hair is similar to yours but is a little wavier and only goes slight past my nose. Just wondering if u have a solution to have my hair not curl when it is drying
If you can tie it up at the back, even in just a small bun or ponytail while it dries, it will slightly pulled back, alternatively wear a thin sports hair band/head band. Sadly this doesn't work for the ends. Just the top.
The problem is my hair doesn’t go back
do your hair also does the same when its short?
I’m asking you because I think your hair is so much like mine’s so I’m hopeful after growing it like you I can style it in back!
Btw how many years it took?
Please reply I Will be thankful
Hey man, I have about the same hair lengt but grew it from an uppercut. Did you trim the sides? The sides of my hair are way shorter than my top hair (reaches under my chin). Any advice or sizes how you did it?
No worries amigo, mine lays flat on my head and then just curls at the bottom. Unless you're born with curly hair or spend hours wearing a cap or spend hours using a curling iron it won't always behave how we want... Try scrunching in the product you use for a curlier effect. Also try using a hair clay if the product your using won't do the trick.
I agree. And I also agree that like people, everyone's hair is different, some may look similar or identical, but everyone's hair is different. As for what I use, here goes. The shampoo and conditioner I use is Honeydew Biotin shampoo and conditioner, even Arganlife Shampoo, which feels great on my hair and scalp. As for a product I use after I washed my hair, I use Revitalizing Hair Therapy or Juvetress in other words and the way I use the listed products, I will say that it keeps my hair looking thick and full with plenty of volume.
Well said brother, at least you know slash are aware of the different hair types! I'm glad you use what works best for you! A lot of people think there's a universal cure to everything. That's not the case, we all have different tastes and react differently to different products.
Your welcome. As for my hair, well, when I got my hair the way I like it, you could say it's like the hair of a lions mane as well, it's really thick and full looking. It's about as thick and full like George Lopez's hair but his hair is straight, mine is curly and wavy, but as time passes, when my hair is short, you see more curls, but if my hair is long, than it's wavy and you could barely see any curls. So far, my hair is long as yours with the same amount of thickness, fullness and volume like yours, but my hair is a different hair type. A for products I use, I'll admit I use different ones, than again, I think everyone uses different products for their hair.
Ik this is late but I’ve been growing my hair out for 6 months now and I have it comed over back. But every time my hair drys instead of the sides goin back with the rest of The Hair they pop out like out got any ideas to keep the hair straight back
Only wash your hair with shampoo twice a week. All the other times you shower you can just use conditioner on your hair. This keeps your hair a little greasy but not dirty. This should help keep the hair where you want it.
nice hair dude. I have curly hair too and am growing it and want it to your length. I just started about a month ago . It's still very short next to this so probably gonna take a year to get it to the chin

I recommend you trim the split ends. Usually they just take off half a centimetre at most! Also it helps taper the way you want to grow out your hair. For example I didn't grow it out evenly from say a buzz cut. I grew it out from a pompadour or quiff cut. The hairs closest to the top of my forehead are the longest whereas the sides and back are still long but significantly shorter by several inches. I intentionally kept leaving the top part long too every trim. Also the trims help you avoid scruff while growing it out so you still look presentable for say a date, job interview etc. I'm going to touch upon this in my next video coming soon!
My hair definitely curls up at the back too! Just make sure when you slick it back to slick it back more towards the centre of the back of your head instead of down the sides to the back of your head. It will start curling after about 3 inches of growth all around!
Casually Formal hey man The back of my hair on the back of my head is curling up I don’t know why this is but your hair does not do that. How long is your hair? Maybe my hair is not long enough. How do I stop my hair from curling up in the back? Should I straighten it?
+Amaan Shah I grew it out from a disconnected fade since May 2016. Sides were 1mm that blended to 6mm before the disconnect at the top, which was 2 inches. I have had several trims and split ends removed since I made this video last April. The length is maybe a few inches longer all the way around only, otherwise it would be almost down towards the top of my chest.
+Kobe Conrad It should curl a little bit once it's long enough that the weight of it falls back. It also depends on how you style it. By running fingers through it to style, you're giving it air which will help it curl.
Nice video , In 2014 I tried growing my hair but caved in a cut it when my fringe was down to my chin , what I'm noticing is we have similar hair so this video fills me with confidence , I've decided to grow it and to do it properly this time .

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
