1/2 guard on the sides and back, 2 guard on the top. I can't remember the last time I owned a brush or a comb...

Cut it with no guard, wash it, air dry it.

YMMV

Question for all of you Gatsby users...do you order yours on Amazon as well?

Or is there a general place to buy them (e.g. Walmart).

I'm not sure if they even sell them in the states, which is why I ask.

For me it just flows naturally that way, but I must admit the left down side sometimes gives me a hard time getting it right! Yes, Hamm is a

That looks terrible, sorry.
It's terrible and NEVER washes out. Get layrite. Goes in like pomade, dries but is still style-able, washes out like gel. Www.hawleywoods.com it smells great as well. It also changes weight depending on how wet or dry your hair is when you use it.

That's how my dad does his hair. So for me it never was that appealing.

Ill check this out. I use Murray's pomade and while its pretty good, it is pretty hard to wash out.

With all these pompadour, emo and long-hair variants that have been in style as of late the Don Draper look is going against the status quo, at least for the 20-30 crowd. The whole point is that its like something your dad (or my grandad) would wear. There is an inherent anachronism to it that I like. Also I noticed that it suits certain facial features better than others.

Do you think I should opt for the ultra hold? I have thick, wavy hair and no matter how much I slick it down it always curls back up just slightly. I just don't want to end up with some epoxy-type compound.

I've actually tried it and it looks great with my face shape. It's just that I look the mirror and see my dad. So I'll stick with what I've got for now.

I haven't tried the ultra so I can't really comment. I have a friend with nappy/thick curly hair who uses the regular and has a paump and it holds down perfectly. If you use it with dry hair I think the regular stuff could straighten an afro. It's strong without being pasty or waxy. I think you'd be fine with the regular and dry hair. If its too think, try it on damp hair. I've used pretty much everything listed in this thread and I will never buy another product other than layrite...

Emulate?

That's just how everyone did their hair back then. That style just sort of never went away. It's really common in the business world.

Ive been seeing it more and more in the casual fashion world, especially in Levi's and Guess ads. The show definitely had a noticeable influence.

I use Loreal hair wax and get the same look once I apply it out of the shower, but after a couple hours, it dries up and that 'wet' look goes. Does the wax which you use, maintain that wet look for the whole day?
