The comb-over has long been known as a fashionable hairstyle amongst brokers and salesman. But since the likes of Hamm, Timberlake, and Clooney began wearing it, the comb-over has been revived and reinvented for a modern aesthetic. It’s a versatile and contemporary hairstyle that frames almost any face. From a neat slick back to a curly brush-over, we have compiled the best comb-over hairstyles to inspire your new look.
Comb over hairstyles has come back in style since Donald Draper donned the look in Mad Men. While some barbers refuse to call it a comb-over and instead have in mind to the cut as a side part, the men’s comb over haircut has become vastly popular as celebrities, hipsters, and every time professionals have transformed the hairstyle once booked for balding or thin-haired men (e.g., Donald Trump) into the neat, modern comb-over of today. Long, short or faded, comb-overs are varied enough for all men. Let’s take a closer look at this classic side-swept style.

Styling A Comb Over
To style the comb-over, follow these steps.
1. Apply your styling product throughout your hair. We recommend pomade, wax or putty for a textured finish.
2. Then comb all your hair forward to find the natural part in your hair.
3. Now use that natural part to comb your hair down on the sides, and comb over the rest.
Don’t forget that your hair doesn’t need to be combed straight to the side; you can comb it diagonally back or brush up your hair in the front to create a tiny lift.
