1. Long Sweep Back

With a hint of influence from the 90s, this cut and style is the latest look. Hair is long with a taper at the sides. The style is just messy enough, mostly slicked back but a twist of fringe on one side. Get the look by blow drying hair and finishing with ADH Dry for texture and hold.
