What Is It

One of the most popular styles that grabbed the attention of men lately is the feathered hairstyle. What is it and is it a good style for you if you plan to choose a cute hairstyle to boost your confidence?

Well, the answer is yes. Being one of the classic men’s haircuts that are still popular today, the feathered hairstyle will make you look good and feel masculine. Also called the layered hairstyle, the feathered hair in men includes several layers in the sense that they appear like feather cuts.

It is crucial to note that regardless of the layers’ length, you should still remember that the manner through which you apply the layers and style them in a way that they suit your personality and facial shape or cut play a vital role in how they will end up looking on you.

How to Get

Step 1 – Comb vertically

Comb a few slices of the hair vertically. Hold the hair at a 90-degree elevation.

Step 2 – Cut small parts

Cut small parts into the ends. Continue working your way, starting from the front part to the back.

Step 3 – Comb perpendicularly

Comb slices of hair perpendicularly to the exact direction where you also styled your hair. For instance, if you comb your hair horizontally from your face, using vertical slices, working from the front to the back can help. In case you are combing your hair straight down, utilize horizontal slices, then work starting from the top to the bottom.

Step 4 – Cut only when damp

Cut your hair only when it is damp. The reason is that this cut may lead to plenty of flyaways if you cut your hair dry. Style afterward.

How to Style 

Step 1 – Prepare your hair 

To prepare your hair for styling, towel-dry your feathered hair after washing, then coat it with a heat protectant before blow-drying. It is also possible to prepare your hair using a lightweight hairspray.

Step 2 – Use a blow dryer

Use a blow dryer with a diffuser. You need the blow dryer to rough dry your hair. Ensure that you set it at the lowest heat setting to prevent damaging your hair.

Step 3 – Use a round brush 

Direct hair evenly with the help of a round brush. You will also find the brush useful in styling your feathered hair based on your chosen variation for it.

Step 4 – Apply a hairspray

Finish styling your feathered hair by spritzing it with some long-hold hairspray. This can provide a stronghold capable of making your chosen hairstyle stay securely in place for several hours minus the stiffness.
