Putting on the Glitz
It does not get any more retro than this. Cary Grant, Clark Gable and their contemporaries are all the godfathers of this dapper and daring look, that some men are just born to wear. All it takes is the right cut with short sides and longer top hair, a handful of gel (for hold and shine) and a fine toothed comb. The hair is parted low on one side with a sharp and every exact line.
The wider section of hair is combed over to and the sides and back are just combed down and close to the head. A little swerve with the comb in front, creates the curve in the fringe, which is so very charming and makes the look even more authentic.
