This classy, but sharp hairstyle is one of my personal favourites. What a magical little gadget a comb is! A combover will require a bit of styling effort – and you will need to use a dime-sized amount of some styling cream or water-based pomade. Begin at the roots, then work the product into the hair. Voila!
