    Sometimes I see other dudes hair and I think wow how did they get it like that! What products or things do they do/use to get it so perfect? Do they use a special type of comb or what? I'm baffled. It's like every dimension and length is just perfect ... I don't get it!

    Most of it's product and a good hair cut! They might have added some layers in maybe, then style with a comb or their fingers.

    If you want to get your hair to those sort of styles, try going to a decent barber shop where they can show you what to do!

    I don't know if this helps haha

    I'd actually avoid barbershops. Go to a proper unisex hair salon and book an appointment with a stylist. Print of some of these photos to show them exactly what you're after and they should be able to sort it for you and give you tips on how to style it. You'll most likely end up forking out 20-40 quid per cut, but you can't put a price on looking good
    I've been going to proper hair salons for about 6 years now, used to get called a gaylord by my mates, but nobody bats an eyelid to men visiting hair salons and tanning shops these days.

    P.S. No offence meant at all by using the word gaylord, just quoting my mates who are a bunch of tits anyways and I have nothing against gay guys/girls in the slightest.

    So what would be a good chain or place to start?

    I've no idea what's in your area so impossible to say really, plus I'm really no expert on what chains of salons there are. I guess google and asking about are your best bets, or if you know of any in your area already then maybe google them to see if you can find any reviews.

    Before even clicking the links I knew what style you meant, the sort of pompadour, James Dean kind of look.
    If you can't afford to go to a unisex salon. Then the basic method is: grow your hair and tell your barber to leave your fringe length as it is (you want it going past your eyebrows maybe), and cut some of your hair at the top (this depends on how big you want the top, you want like maybe 3 inches at the top left). And tell him to make the hair at the top slightly shorter as it gets towards the crown. This helps your hair near the front be able to maintain a position at the top.
    Then make sure the sides and are cut very short, maybe a number 1 or number 2 grade. And you want sort of a high or medium blend on the sides and back.

    Now you have the hair cut, you can buy product. American Crew, Bumble And Bumble and Hairbond are ok.
    I like Hairbond Moulder.

    When you wash your hair, dry it roughly to about 40%, then use a round brush and a hair dryer to dry your hair. You want to hold the hair at the top straight up and use your hair dryer to push it to the direction you want it to stay.

    Then add the product in.

    Going to a good salon would be better AND also it depends on your face shape. I think oval shaped faces and chiselled jawlines suits it more.

    Short back and sides faded into your hair (so it doesn't look like that .... joey essex) and weight off the top and either thin off your fringe or cut your fringe abit, then use a really good pomade (if you have a long fringe), fiber (short hair) or forming cream, ideally if you have black hair you want a low shine product with a matte finish, but if your hair is any other colour you can get away with shine. NEVER USE GEL, and add a little product to your hair and if it's not enough keep adding, never put too much in strait away.
