About G-Eazy Haircut

The musician admits that his hairstyle has been significantly influenced by Johnny Cash – the legendary music artist so well-known for his slightly greasy, but cool cut.
The defining features of G-Eazy haircut are:

  • #1: Side parting (hard).
  • #2: His hair isn’t voluminous like a pomp or a quiff – but falls flat on the head. It’s cool – we like that.
  • #3: His hair is combed away from the part.
  • #4: The hair is super shiny and sleek – but it never looks gross and greasy.

How to achieve His Haircut

The good news about the cut is that it isn’t only an uber cool, distinctive look – but it is also pretty easy to master.

You’ll need to have grown your hair for a few months, so you have the right length to work with – but apart from that, with a bit of guidance – your barber will be able to nail the look easily.

The key elements of G-Eazy haircut are the tapered sides and longer top. The hair on top should be about 3-4 inches long. The sides should be tapered using a clipper set to grade 3 or 4 (haircut number #3 or #4). This means that the sides will be nice and short, but not as short as they would be if you went for a fade haircut.

How to style the look (Hair Tutorial)

Styling the look isn’t rocket science, either. Inspired by the 40s, the look is all about the sleek and shiny texture – but the hair doesn’t look greasy.

G-Eazy plays around with the style a little – sometimes he goes for the messy vibes, sometimes it’s nice and slicked back. How you choose to customize it is up to you – but here’s how to style his signature look:

Step #1: Wash your hair and condition it to avoid any flyaways. We want the hair to be as slick as it can be – and we need it to be manageable.

Step #2: Now, grab some strong-hold pomade – ideally, a dime-sized amount. Warm it in your hands before applying.

Step #3: The next step is working the pomade through your locks. Make sure you coat the underside of your hair, too.

Step #4: Add the side parting: use a wide-toothed comb and create a parting from your crown to the front of your head.

Step #5: Move the hair that’s on both sides of the parting away from it.

Step #6: Now, Use the wide-toothed comb again and comb your hair away from the  – back and across parting Use the free hand to smooth it down if it’s being unruly.

Step #7: Continue combing your hair until a desired result is achieved. You can use a little bit more of the pomade if needed. Tip: using a pomade with high gloss would be ideal.
