Josh Earnest Hair Style - US Press Secretary's Hairstyle
Hello Gentlemen of the Forum,

I've been a longtime reader but this is my first post. I'm looking for help achieving a hairstyle I've been working on. The best way I can describe it is Press Secretary Josh Earnest on the top (mainly the volume and semi curlicue in the front) with a classic ivy league post part and on the sides. For styling I currently use Uppercut Matt Clay but find it difficult to retain volume and shape. Any advice would be appreciated.


P.S. I could not attach the images as a clickable link so to find them image search for Josh Earnest (any picture should do) and Brad Pitt Ivy League Haircut (should be the first result, he's wearing black sunglasses).

RE: Josh Earnest Hair Style - US Press Secretary's Hairstyle
I'll go ahead and post some good pictures of Josh Earnest's hairstyle. We are looking at a classic medium taper haircut with a side part hairstyle. Such a hairstyle may be regarded as a businessman hairstyle by some hairdressers and in some circles. However I tend to fall in the purist side and I don't consider a taper haircut with a side part a businessman hairstyle per se. There needs to be some tapering on the top of the head, and not just on the sides and back of the head, to call a classic hairstyle like this one a true 'businessman hairstyle'. Josh Earnest's hair on the top is a classic four inches. He has straight hair - this is very important. What's your hair type? A guy with coiled hair or even wavy hair will not get the same hairstyle texture of Josh Earnest. Most guys go wrong with their hair type and in choosing the right hairstyle for their hair type.

More about men's hair types:

First picture of Josh Earnest's hairstyle is a closeup picture of how his hair is styled. It's nothing that requires any special styling efforts. Use hair wax or some pomade, part to the side. The trick is getting a good haircut. Ask for a medium taper haircut on the sides and back of the head. Ask your hairdresser to finish the taper with a hair clipper but to use a long length. Josh Earnest seems to vary his taper haircut lengths but a medium taper cut will work very well.

Thanks for the advice, it'll be super helpful to explain this to my barber. To answer your question my hair type is in between wavy and coiled. Using a little bit of product it easily straightens out however I have trouble retaining volume when I do this.
