The dapper haircut is steadily increasing popularity among men worlwide, and more specifically in the Asian region (which is meant to be the avant-garde with regard to hairstyles). Dapper hairstyles for men can better be described as a combination of various elements from classic men’s styles. The result of this combination is a modern twist, which breathes new hairstyles into old standbys.
This hairstyle is a combination a slicked back top, a taper or fade, and a side part. Although it greatly packs a punch, it is simple enough. Are you bored of your current hairstyle, so you are looking for a refreshing haircut? Try this one!
What are the prerequisites to get a dapper haircut?
This hairstyle works best if you’ve got wavy or straight hair because the hair will need to be somewhat slicked back. If you’ve got curly but not coiled hair, there are limited chances that you will be able to pull off the hairstyle. Actually, it will be somewhat difficult to have it fixed.
Applying a good hair product is also necessary. For instance, wax or a medium hold gel can work aptly. The choice, however, depends on your hair type. It is advisable that you make use of a firm hold product if you’ve got hair that is tough to manage. Above all, a matte product can be preferable since it appears like no product was applied to the hair, so there is no greasy appearance.
How Do I Get The Dapper Haircut Fixed?
First of all, ask your barber to taper or fade the back and sides. Generally, the hair should fade up from approximately 1 to 2 inches. The taper should then be repeated on the temples, such that the resulting look will be a nice overall taper.
Next, ask the barber to blend the clipped hair. The scissors over comb method should be utilized instead of clippers. After this step is completed, your hair should actually look nicely blended together. Basically, you should not be able to notice any dramatic difference between the back, sides and the top.
Lastly, you may ask the barber to trim the hair on top to the length you wish. You are free to choose any length, but we’d recommend anywhere from 2 to 4 inches since this makes the haircut to be just perfect. You definitely need enough hair on the top in order for you to part it and also slick it back, but you equally shouldn’t keep too much, or else it will eventually become unmanageable. If you are hoping to get more voluminous dapper hairstyles for men, you will definitely want your hair to be about 3 to 4 inches or longer on the end of the spectrum.
In addition, you can ask for the edges of your dapper haircut to be detailed with several clippers so that you may have numerous fine lines around it. Alternatively, you can request the barber to shave the hard part. All in all, maintenance is a very important aspect for this hairstyle.
