We’ve seen Hugh Jackman with everything from the ultra-masculine, clean cut style of his character ‘Leo’ in “Kate & Leopold”, to the
back-swept neo-pompadour style of “X-Men’s” ‘Wolverine’. Here we see Jackman with shoulder-length tresses (most likely from his days filming “Van Helsing”).
The long hair style with layers at the front of the head is appropriate for many different hair types and wave patterns except for
those that are extremely curly. It will also work for men with a variety of face shapes, except those with rounder features or heavy, jowly faces.
The Cut: If the hair is sufficiently long to create this look, you should dampen the hair and section it in a
seven-section parting. Comb down a ½ inch perimeter around the entire hairline. Cut a guide length in the front center to determine
the fringe length. Create the cut by combing the hair forward from each side to the front of the face and holding the hair at a gentle
45-degree elevation. Once the layers have been created to frame the face, move to the back of the head and cut a guide length at the
back of the head. Work from center to side on each side of the head to cut the bottom hairline to the desired length. Lower the
sectioned hair in half-measures and cut the back sections to the guide length. Lower the forward half of the top and side sections
and comb those forward to be cut along the front guide lengths. The back halves of the top and sides as well as the crown section
should be lowered and cut according to the bottom guide length. If desired, use a steep, point cutting or slithering technique to add
some texturing to the long style.
The Style: After shampooing and conditioning, the hair should be sprayed with leave-in conditioner and smoothing
product. At this point, you should use your blow-dryer and dry the hair using a large, flat brush. Dry the hair completely and after
you’re done, make sure to follow up with a flat iron to give the hair a smooth finish if needed. If you have any trouble with fly-away
hairs, use a small amount of smoothing serum spread through the palms and glide your hands through the hair to give a sleek finish.
