So, book an appointment with your barber and ask him for a short back and sides with a pushed back quiff (show picture above for reference).

Finally, your barber can feather and thin out the top hair with his scissors to make your hair appear fluffy and full of volume.

It was also a chance for Garfield to bring back haircuts from the 1940s.This slick military haircut only needs a minimum amount of product to maintain making it very low maintenance.
How To Cut:

From the bottom of the hair to the top of the ears you want to #2 and then from the tip of the ear upwards you will want to taper into a #3. Then go through and make sure the hair is well blended.
