Modern Slicked Back Hairstyle: Cool Picture with Advice
Here at the Men's Hair Forum, we were the first to document the two types of slicked back hairstyles as most men had remained too confused about the art of slicking back hair. In a nutshell and as explained in detail in the link above, there are two types of slicked-back styles:
  • Classic slick back: the hair is combed back tightly and laid flat on the scalp. Hair-styling products to use for the classic slick back include any strong-hold products like the older oil-based pomades and the thicker hairstyling glue.
  • Modern slick back: the hair is combed back loosely with the fingers alone or with a combination of fingers with a comb; this results in a higher-set hairstyle which emphasized the hair on the top of the head. A hair dryer for men may be used to achieve extra volume if one has fine hair or straight hair. Hairstyling products for the modern slick back include water-based pomades and hairstyling mousse.
Here at the forum, we're always big on bringing you inspiration for your hair, so I'd like to include in this post the following picture of what a nicely-styled modern slick-back looks like. There has been an increasing trend in the interest for big-volume hairstyles since 2014 and we've covered in great detail other big-hair styles like the Brush Up hairstyle, the Pompadour hairstyle and the Quiff hairstyle.

Here's the picture of the referenced modern slick back style:

For those of you interested in the specs of this hairstyle, the hair has been slightly tapered at the sides and back of the head. The hair on the top is at 5 inches of hair length while the hair on the sides and back has been tapered down to 3 inches. The hairstyling product used for this modern slick back in the picture was a water-based pomade with a medium hold and low shine. A hair dryer was used to accentuate the volume on both the top and the sides/back.

The hair type of the gentleman in the picture is "wavy" as per our hair type guide. This same slicked back hairstyle can be achieved by those with the following two other hair types: straight hair and coiled curly hair.

As per he usual on this forum section, you may rate this slicked back hairstyle by using the star-rating feature of the forum. Hairstyle or haircut questions are also welcome!
