Disconnected Hair Styles: Unlimited Potential
The disconnected hair style trend allows for a lot of style options for those that want a manageable look without too much weight or volume.
Wearing a mid-length style on top and totally shaving underneath will give the appearance of the top hanging over. You can style the top into a partial mohawk or a side sweep. Slicking back your hair or having a pompadour on top are other popular options you can have at your disposal on a daily basis.
The top length is up to you, but we advise leaving enough length to play with. If you don't, then you can have a spiky pompadour which might be easier for some to deal with. This look is fabulous for guys that want to combine it with a well-groomed beard. Adding some layers and texture to bangs can help achieve the volume necessary for a higher pompadour. When you want to tame it down, you can slick it back or to the side and look like a million bucks.
The Skater Look
The hairstyle made popular by surfers and skaters in the 1990s is appearing more and more often. This disconnected style involves a close shave underneath while leaving the top chin length or longer. For those conflicted with cutting their long hair, this can be a good choice. If you have this cut done right, you can even wear it has a mohawk or slicked back or to the side. Perhaps the versatility of this style is one of the reasons we see it gain popularity once again.
Cutting off all the hair on the lower section of the head and leaving the top and center long enough to spike easily offers the option of wearing your hair in something close to a mohawk but a bit more subtle and work appropriate. A bit of pomade or styling jail is often all that is needed to look great if you go with this stylish cut.
Finding The Right Styling Products
Disconnected hairstyles can require very little products or a lot of them depending on your hair type and what overall look you are going for. A high pompadour needs something to help hold it in place and build volume, especially if you have thinner hair that wants to go everywhere.
Texturizing sprays are easy to use and don't leave your hair with a sticky or coated feeling. If you like to have a high hair style though then be prepared to use some more serious styling sprays. It is best to listen to your stylist about what products to use. If possible, you should use the same ones they do so you can be trained to maintain your style and keep your hair in optimum condition.
