    Don't they just leave their hair long, then cut it somewhat like that with layers, then use wax and hairspray. Anywho, Aaron Yan has a nice smile. image

    I tried to make something simillar to Jung Yunho but it's impossible on my hair since I'm not asian image
    I really don't know how the asian hair is because I never touched it ... but I suppose it's more emmm "solid" so you really don't need to use some extra hard products. I recommend to look at those commercials:

    Those are "Gatsby" products, I tried to find them in Poland ... but I think it's only in Asia and maybe America. There are videos how to make simmilar (crap I don't know how to write this word xD) hairstyles, ofcourse they are not the same, but hey, it's you who use this product so you should have something like that.

    But most important is cutting. I think you need to visit good hairstylist with a photo and he should be able to do something like that image
    BTW thanks for photo, I'll grow up my hair a bit and go with it to hairstylist, I wonder how it will look on my head ... if he will be able even to do something simmilar ^^

    you can use gatsby wax products. but yeh you definately need the right cutting to use the product properly. In yunhos case most like the hairdresser has thinned out his hair and then use product and hairspray.

    videos and tutorials can be found here:

    ^if you get the right cut, it's extremely easy to do. Especially with Gatsby waxes.
  • ah-jefuah-jefu EH? CanadaPosts: 416Member
    It's like they say.. all in the cut!

    It also helps to make it poofier if you blow dry it after you shower/ wet it.

    But you must blow-dry your hair in the opposite direction of how it is supposed to droop, then you will get it poofy.
    still pulling on doors when pushing is required.

    I like Jung's looks cool. I'm planning on getting my hair thinned out one day..right now I'm still trying to grow out my hair..not long enough yet..maybe 4-5 more months. Only been growing for 5 months =(

    Also anyone have any idea on how to grow my sides out =D because I been getting fades and blend it in with the top. Should I keep growing my sides out too?

    My recent pic of my hair.


    I got a specific cut, which consisted of layering and thinning...but I got lazy and my hairs getting long, I can still style it, even though it's kinda thicker and it still looks decent, it really doe's depend on the cut on how the style will turn out.

    Gatsby is an asian wax, pretty easy to find in, Canada, not sure about US...look around in asian hair salons?

    i say be patient.

    i hate my sides too...i cant them anywhere close to other koreans and japanese kats. ehh it sucks.

    neways i used to get a fade as well. just keep them growing. dont trim them unless you shape them. that will help out in the long run. also, since you got fades then that means you should get a lil curl n i bet you get them on your sides thats why it looks ugly rite? if thats tha case, dont worry im there with ya. use a flat iron to me it straight. makes it look better.

    yeah man just keep letting it grow. the growing process sucks but it will sure be well worth it.

    neways about gatsby wax n waht not those hair products are good. i got the moving rubber and it works like a charm. thing is my hair is being a lil punk and its not letting me style the way i want to. errrrrr. if you cant find any gatsby [got mine on ebay, btw] then a great substitution is the xtah crude clay. it works just as well as gatsby and sometimes i think its better. smells a lil funky buh it has worked wonders. ive notice they use this at its a good product and i recommend it to anyone. btw, you CAN find this in the states. just go to a saloon and look for one or maybe an ulta? happy searching.;SectionID=333 <~the clay
