The traditional comb over is a classic haircut that hasn’t gone out of style. In fact, quite the opposite. The comb over has only continued to evolve over the years.
One of the biggest appeals of this haircut is the ease of styling. Most of these looks require just four easy steps. Product. Part. Comb. Style.
Of course, some of the newest styles with high volume or texture require a little blow drying, but it’s still relatively easy to manage, and is definitely stylish!
Check out our top pics for unique comb over styles below. Happy styling!
1) TAPE TWIST COMB OVER
With this cut, the hair is separated by a long straight part while the hair on one side remains long.
The other side is eased into a skin fade and the hair on top is brushed up for some extra height.
2) TIGHT CROP COMB OVER W/ SHAVED SIDE
This unique comb is the epitome of classic and cool. The skin fade on the sides is contrasted by the long top and accented by the shaved part.
To keep it fresh, pair with a modern facial hairstyle.
3) COMB OVER W/ DEEP PART
This comb over style is ideal for asian hair types. When styled, the hair is combed neatly to the side with a deep undercut on the sides separated by a prominent parting.
This hairstyle looks both edgy, yet professional and is perfect for those wanting to draw attention at the workplace.
4) POMPADOUR COMB OVER
A cool way to add some variation to the classic pompadour is with the addition of a high fade. Use a little loose-hold pomade and blow-dry to get plenty of volume for a bigger, sweeping look.
For a neater pomp, try using a stronger hold pomade.
5) COMB OVER w/ MOHAWK FADE
Mohawks are always a great way to add some edge to your everyday hairstyle. In fact, the mohawk is one of the most common ways to sport a comb over.
With this design, the undercut also accents the height. To achieve this look, try using a firm hold pomade like our ShapeShifter.
6) HIGH FADE COMB OVER
When paired with a comb over, the high fade draws attention to the length. With less room for tapering, it transitions quickly from short on the sides to a much longer top.
The high fade works best for those with shorter hair, although some can rock it with longer locks.
7) BRUSHED UP COMB OVER
This cut is a modern twist on the pompadour comb over. When styling this look, make sure to blow dry the front of your hair up and into place.
Finish by teasing and brushing the hair upward for extra volume, then finish with a strong-hold styling product such as a pomade.
8) ROLLING BACK COMB OVER
With this unique comb over, the longer hair in the front is styled back, while the rest of the hair is slicked towards one of the skin faded sides.
The sharp fringe line also adds contrast to the soft blends, making this one of the most modern takes on the traditional comb over.
