The Classic Comb Back
No matter your hair texture or length, the comb back is an absolute classic that looks good on anyone. Just by running a comb through the top of your hair, you create a polished and professional look that is perfect for a day at the office or a night on the town.
To get the comb back look, create a side part in your hair and comb it over to your preference. Add a small amount of Jaxson Maximus Gel to keep your hair in place all day long. Don’t overdue it with products or you run the risk of giving off a “hard crusty” texture.

The great thing about the crewcut hairstyle is that it requires very little maintenance, towel dry, and you are good to go. To keep your hair looking healthy and luscious, we recommend washing your hair with our Jaxson Maximus Shampoo and Conditioner.

This hairstyle does require a bit more maintenance than the other looks. We would only recommend this hairstyle to guys that are willing to take the time to style their hair every morning and come in for a regular haircut about every two weeks.
The French Crop is a classic for a reason. This is a great hairstyle for men that have very straight fine hair or hair that is beginning to thin out. Keep the edges short with the top a little longer for a bit of volume on top.
A low fade haircut looks great with all hair textures. A low fade features a longer length on top that gradually gets shorter revealing the skin around the nape of the neck and ears. This can be rocked with shorter or longer hair on top just depending on the style you are trying to achieve.
Just because you have shorter hair does not mean you should be scared to try out the pompadour. One of the most classic hairstyles out there, the pompadour, is great for creating the illusion of volume and fullness. even if your hair does tend to fall on the thinner side.
To style on shorter hair, apply a liberal amount of our Jaxson Maximus Firm Hold Mousse starting at the roots to the ends of your hair. For a dramatic effect, use a small round brush and blow dryer to create lift and movement in your hair.
Finish off your look with our Finishing Hair Spray to keep your hair in place all day long. Don’t go overboard on the amount of product you put in your hair. A small amount goes a long way.
Soft And Spiky
Soft spikes are perfect for creating the look of volume and fullness. The soft spike hairstyle is great for those that have super flat hair or are thinning out in various areas on the scalp. This is a great hairstyle if you want to add a bit more youthfulness to your look.
