If you are looking for a clean-cut look that is far from boring, try a textured short style. You can have all the clean lines from a more traditional clipper cut without having to pick a cutting-comb number for all around. Having the top textured instead of clippered creates depth and movement and the clean lines create a fresh professional look. Ask your barber or stylist to use texturizing shears strategically on the top layers of your hair. An example of a textured short hairstyle is seen here on actor Chow Yun-Fat.
Suggested products to help acheive this look are: Modern Organic Products’ Glisten High Shine Pomade, Alterna’s Hemp Modeling Clay, or American Crew’s Fiber.
