The Matthijs de Ligt haircut
Depending on the length of your hair already and your hair type, your barber might choose to stick to the scissors for this one. Scissor over comb is a technique barbers use to remove bulk and is a controlled method for cutting hair without the need for clippers. This is generally the method for medium/long haircuts and is a smart gentleman’s haircut.
What products do I need?
If you decide this style is for you, first you need to understand that if you want to keep your hairstyle longer, you’re going have to take special care of it. This involves a little more care and maintainance but if you really want the Matthijs de Ligt haircut it will be worth it in the end!
After washing your hair, whilst damp apply small amounts of the Hairbond Wonder Primer to your hands and begin rubbing it in, all over your hair. Then take a comb or a brush and style in a parting down your most natural side. Once you have made the parting, use a hair dryer to blow the hair in the direction you’ve already brushed or combed it.
After the hair has dried your style should be visible and now you will only need to add a finishing product for the final touch.
A great product to use for this style is the Hairbond Gripper Pomade..
