This simple yet stylish combed-back hairstyle is great for adding weight to grey hair.
In this shot, Ryan Reynolds is sporting a smooth, combed-back style. Notice how the hair gets combed to the side as the style goes further back on the head. Combined with clipped sides, this hairstyle makes a confident statement that pairs well with peppered hair.
The tiny quiff/pompadour at the front helps to add weight and texture, which hairstylist Jamie Stevens says is a crucial aspect of an older man’s style. “As a man grows older, the density of his hair changes and thins out,” Stevens says. “Weight and texture are needed to stop it looking flat and limp.” Hairstyles for men with grey hair need a bit more presence, and this cut delivers that.
Ask your barber for about 1.5 to 2 inches on top of the head. Since the styling process will give you volume, you don’t need too much on top. The sides should be buzzed––here, Reynolds has about a #4 or #5 on the sides, but you can go a little shorter or longer depending on your preference. The back should be buzzed with the same clipper length.
This hairstyle is all about the product. For thin hair, you’ll need a pomade or gel with a medium hold. For thicker hair, use a firm hold product.
Work the product into towel-dried, damp hair, working backwards and to one side of your choice with your fingers to thoroughly apply the product. Next, use a comb to tease the hair back into a small quiff/pompadour. Finally, set the hair in place by combing it backwards and to the side. This will give you the slightly side-swept look Reynolds has here.
