The back of this short casual hairstyle is tapered into the nape, while the sides are left slightly longer to tuck behind the ears. The top length is parted on the side making it a great low-fuss look to balance out a long face. Only a small amount of product is needed and regular trims will help maintain this shape.

3. Flatten the Top Using Wax
Apply wax to the palms of your hands, and then starting at the top-back area, drag your hands forward, flattening your hair down as you go. For a wetter look use more wax.
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
