Rob is growing his hair from a shaggy, layered crop, so I just took the length up a little to try and meet the layers. For this I worked a one-length technique with a heavily 'softened' perimeter. The perimeter is super softened/shattered so it looks as though it's grown into that shape instead of being cut into it. This helps the hair maintain a masculine finish with plenty of length.
Beard Moisturiser was blowdried in to help give the hair a second-day heaviness and reduce frizz. Hair Play was then applied to finish and shape the hair and leave a more natural sheen with a loose hold.
Don't be afraid to go a day without washing your hair. Excess oils can sometimes help longer hair sit better and look healthier. Always take a pea sized amount of styling product and work into your hands just enough to warm through. Work through the hair roots to tip and mould into shape. Always start with less as you can always add more!
