So I am trying to achieve this style:
But I have been to so many barbers/hairdressers and I am getting sick of them messing my hair up and having to regrow it. I am at my wits end and I just need some (technical) help, as I feel like I need to understand hair so I can tell the hairdress exactly what needs to be done. Clearly bringing a picture is not good enough....
I have an attachment of a birdseye view of a head
1) I want to know if I want to achieve the Asian dude's style, does my hair need to be exactly the same length in all areas? Ie. A, B, C, D, E?
I ask this because my hair is shorter at the points A, E and D, and longer as it progresses to C. This means that whenever I try to slick my hair back and sideways towards the top right corner, my hair at point A sticks up. I should mention that my hair is extremely extremely straight and rigid and thus applying more product is not an option as then it does not look natural.
My hair length at the sides A, E, D is abut 2-3 inches, whereas at B/C closer to 4 inches
2) I cannot see the back of the guy's head in the pic, so I do not know what is best. I have a f*cking cowlick at the back which is stubborn as fudge, at point D. It is like an explosion back there. Shall I let it grow out or cut it short? How do I deal with cowlicks? How do I get it like the Asian dude in the photo, he clearly does not have a cowlick.
Why is getting the right hair so painful!!
I might take a picture tomorrow.
I don't know if the studentroom is the best place to find hair experts, but I tried searchiing hair forums on google, and they seemed dead. If anyone can direct me to a forum/site with expert hairdressers would be appreciated
What should I do?
