Men’s hairstyling has evolved since the 1900s. Historically, a man’s hairstyle told a lot about his personality, wealth, class, and masculinity. Now? Well, things aren’t very different but while countless hairstyles have come and gone down the years, some of them have withstood the test of time and are still very much in vogue.
Speaking of time, there is hardly a more timeless hairstyle around that the slicked-back hairstyle.

The slicked-back hairstyle is hugely popular today and countless guys today would love to have the classic, eye-catching Beckham look for all occasions, which brings us to the reason I wrote this post: to teach guys how to style and slick back their short hair. As expected, this hairstyle is best done by a professional, but for the ‘do it yourself’ enthusiasts who don’t fancy spending an entire afternoon at a salon, this how-to guide is for you.
