Messy Undercut Slick Back - How to Cut

This is a modern classic in the making. It's no secret that hair styles are changing – guys like fresh new looks all the time. This is a statement hairstyle that screams confidence and charisma. It's also a great changeup hairstyle for a guy looking for something new after years of pomps and classic slick backs.

There are so many things to get right and a lot of techniques involved to make a good cut look great – the fade has to be high enough and smooth enough, with a hard stop at the part line on both sides; the length on the top has to be just right at the fringe and back; the hairline has to be strong.

We know it's not easy, so we’ve tried to help just a little with this video tutorial. Dane Hesse, aka the Pig Barber is a master of the Messy Undercut style, and is seriously talented with a short hair fade.




Why choose Uppercut Deluxe Matte Clay

Different guys have different styles. Not everyone wants a super groomed and slick style. Some guys want rough, textured, messy looking styles. Some guys want both. But not at the same time.

Following from Deluxe Pomade and Featherweight, Matte Clay was a very natural fit to the Uppercut Deluxe family – once again breaking rules and norms across conventional hair products.

The founders of Uppercut Deluxe realized quickly that short messy styles had become the new modern classic – old school barbers were losing out to the mainstream that could give those guys what they wanted.

This product became a way of giving something back to the barber – a way of modernizing this classic trade and broadening what was possible.
