Best Pomades for the Slicked Back Hairstyle
The best hair pomade for your slicked back hairstyle will depend upon how you want the slicking to be done. The slicking does in fact fall under the classic slick (think of mature men in the 1940s and 1950s) and the modern slick (think of young men wearing Undercuts).

In a classic slicked back, the hair is slicked by combing it back tightly so that the hair is flattened without any movement of the hair. On the other hand, the modern slicked back is not as tightly combed back and leaves some movement for the hair. See pictures below:

You can see in the classic version that the hair is flat and looks locked/glued, no movement of the hair whatsoever. However, in the modern version of the slicked back, the hair has more volume and looks less locked/glued. These differences between hairstyling versions is the reason for which knowing what specific hairstyle you want is so important to get the right hair products!

So, what's the best pomade for a classic slicked back style? You can't go wrong with this hair pomade.
And how about the best pomade for a modern slicked back style? You can't go wrong with this hair pomade.
Lastly, you will need a good men's comb if you want to get the maximum out of any of the slicked back versions you choose to style your hair, so don't think it twice and buy this hand-made men's comb at a great price.

Now you know what hair pomade to choose for which of the 2 slicking back versions of this hairstyle, so get slicking! Smile

RE: Best Pomades for the Slicked Back Hairstyle
The slick back is such a classic old timer hairstyle! thought that we could just use any pomade to sweep the hair back but its good to know that a pomade has to be chosen depending on the 'version' if we could say of the slick back style.
Thanks TMHF Smile

That's right, pomade is good for slick back hairstyles & side swept hairstyles but you gotta go with the different holding strengths like THMF linked above!
