How To Get James Franco's Haircut: The Dishevelled Slick-Back

In the next of our series on great winter haircuts, Dolce and Gabanna's master barber shows you how to get James Franco's look

If summer 2013 was owned by the Scandinavian slick-back, the winter to come is about an altogether more comfortable look. Though a sharply shaved back and sides combined with a strictly combed, wet-look top can look boyishly neat (see Becks and Gosling for proof), it’s not an easy cut to maintain. We already showed you how to steal Justin Timberlake's neat sweep – here's a breezier alternative for the curly-haired man.

The Dishevelled Slick-Back 
By Carmelo Guastella, master barber at Dolce & Gabbana

What to ask for: “With wavy hair you need to be careful chopping in too much, so no clippers. This style is far removed from the short-sides look a lot of guys go for at the moment. Leave some fullness, but define the hair around the edges.”

Who should have it: “This style caters for men with naturally wavy or curly hair. It’s relaxed; you don’t need strong wax as this will weigh it down, and you don’t need to use a hairdryer as it will frizz up. It’s a good style for guys who like no fuss.”

Where to wear it:  “A suit; it’s kind of relaxed-formal.”
