Traditional Brush Up

THE CUT

Low on maintenance, high on style, the brush up is a fool-proof style for a guy on the go. With its clean lines and sharp neckline, it looks fresh and professional, but with a little product it can be made more messy and spiky. All face shapes are complemented by this cut, and it works well for all hair types and textures too.

THE STYLING

After towel drying hair, apply Paul Mitchell Fast Form from root to tip. Blow dry using a firm bristle brush, pulling hair up and back. Finish the look by working a little MITCH Clean Cut Styling Cream into your hands, then running it through hair.

For a second look, apply a firm-hold gel like American Crew Firm Hold Styling Gel to damp hair, then use a fine tooth comb to draw the hair straight back. Let air dry.
