Fifties College Boys Look

The college boys of the fifties worked hard to make their own look, and get that forward "flip" just right. This haircut borrows heavily from those looks with its short-tapered back and sides with the clean-cut All-American outline. The hair in the top section is longer, and gently layered to allow the forward edge to style into a feathered look.
Recreate this hairstyle with a diffused dryer getting the hair mostly-dry with styling gel having been applied while still wet. Part the hair cleanly, and keep the arrangement simple. Glide the comb sideways along the fringe to fold the ends of the hair over themselves and give your hair that clean-swept crest that makes this style special.
