What you need

The best thing about a slicked back undercut is that you can do it on your own using a hair clipper. So, just keep looking into the mirror, and clip all the hair you see below your horizontal temple line. You can use either the number 1, 2 or 3 clipper, as per the length of hair you want for your cut. Make sure that you use the same clipper size to cut all the hair you see on the back and sides of your head. Having a high quality hair clipper will definitely save you a lot of money in the long run, as you will not have to visit a salon to have your undercut every time.

Preparing the hair for the undercut

You will need a good quality pomade to slick your hair back once you have shaven your hair. A styling wax or hair gel may also work, but pomade is best to give gloss and slick to your hair. First of all, dampen your hair, coat them with pomade and comb back your hair until they look flat and volume-less. Once your hair is ready for the cut, you can either cut them into classic style or modern style slick back.

Classic style undercut

If you want to cut a classic style of slicked back undercut, continue combing your hair until it is completely flat. If you are using strong pomade, you will not have any difficulty in holding your hair in a fixed position. In a classic style haircut, you will have to remember that you have to have your hair lying flat with the help of a comb only. You may add more promade if you want more hold and slick.

Modern style undercut

If you want to give a modern look to your slicked back undercut, then you should comb your hair for a few times, and then style them back with the help of your fingers. By doing this, you create volume to your undercut, and make them trendier and messier, as expected from a modern style and without letting your hair go greasy. Just like the classic style, you may add more promade if needed. Take a look at how to slick hair back without it looking greasy for more information.
