Like any good style, the best starting point is of course a good cut from a trusted Barber. If you haven’t already found your go-to Barber then get out there and find him or her.
Ask your Barber for a skin fade or bald fade finished off with a straight razor. For the Combover it is important that your Barber leaves a good amount of length on top of the hair to ensure you can style accordingly. Length throughout the whole top section of the hair will allows for the Combover look and naturally slightly more length is required through the fringe to style correctly.
