You seem to know what you're talking about so i gotta ask you for some advice. I have thick hair, not super thick like i've seen some people but thick enough that if i don't lay it down it'll stick up in some parts. I'm trying to get a quiff/pompadour look, how would i go about this.. I tried pomade but that doesn't hold my hair well enough and it's also a bit too shiny for my liking. I usually use putty for that matte look and it's probably the best at holding my hair but without blow drying or anything it tends to lose it's form after a bit. Am i using the right products and just not prepping correctly? Or is it completely the wrong products? I was thinking to try sea salt spray like i saw someone use but i feel it's unnecessary because i've seen some people use putty or wax and achieve the same look but i just can't get it right.
Same shit happens to me. I have hella thick hair, and my side part will always fall at the forehead. From my experience, use pomade/molding wax. Blow dry your hair with hot air and even hairspray. Just keep doing it and train your hair, eventually it will stay.
Also, some hair isn't right for certain haircuts.
I'll try that, sounds like we have similar hair thickness.. when i part it, it eventually falls on my forehead. Somewhat similar to Shiri up there. Do you usually style your hair and blowdry it when it's damp? I think imma try that and see how it works out.
EDIT: I just noticed the picture you posted, that hairs looking nice man.. Pretty much what i'm kinda trying to achieve. Hows the molding wax like? For some reason i feel like the pomade doesn't hold very well.
Depends on the time, if I'm short on time, I'll skip on blow drying. I like styling it when its damp though, its easier to run the comb and fingers through.
Molding wax is great, it gives it a natural look, but it starts to fall in 5-6 hours. Wind or any excessive movement will also fuck it up.
