Rimer, who is known for his meticulous classic cuts, created this 1920s look inspired by The Great Gatsby in honor of WAHL Professional’s 100th anniversary.
Step 1: Create a horseshoe parting. Remember: The wider your parting, the fuller your final look will be.
Step 2: Begin at the nape with a closed blade, working up and out to remove bulk. Work from short to long up to a #2, adjusting the Taper level as you go.
Step 3: At the sideburn, cut the hair in the direction you want it to flow.
Step 4: Taper the sidburn with a #1 attachment comb with a closed blade.
Step 5: Cut the top to the desired length using traveling sections.
Step 6: Blow-dry following the direction you want the hair to fall.
Step 7: Finely detail the outline.
Step 8: Apply product, and then comb through for desired look.
