The comb over is a timeless classic hairstyle that men for decades have worn with great success. To achieve the modern comb over you will need a hard part , a comb, and your favourite hairstyling product.

There are two ways to style a comb over, the first we call the “neat way“. This is more reminiscent of the classic 1950’s style combover where the hair is neatly combed to the side starting from your hair part. Of course you will need to use your favourite pomade to achieve this, we recommend a medium to strong holding pomade to give you a nice hold and a wet looking finish. Here are some examples of this style:

A different way to style a comb over is what we call a loose comb over. You can put your own twist on this style as anything really goes. A loose comb over takes it’s own shape, usually having a lot more volume from the use of a blow dryer or opting to use a matte finish hairstyling product as oppose to a heavy pomade with a wet finish. Take a look at some examples below:
