Suits you, sir! When he’s not busy laying down the law, Harvey is capable of being the charmer, the persuasive, playful, confident guy which make him a hit with both the clientele and the women. Read on for expert advice from our London barbers on how to achieve the Harvey Specter Hairstyle.
Our favourite quote from Harvey is:
“When I got here, I dominated. They thought I worked 100 hours a day. Now, no matter what time I get in, nobody questions my ability to get the job done.”
That’s a real food-for-thought statement isn’t it? If you forget the fact that he is a fictional character, Harvey is that gentleman all of us strive to be in certain aspects. That doesn’t mean we want to be an exact replica of him but it’s fair to say there are attributes and elements of his character which induce a little envy. One of the things the fairer sex love about Mr Specter is his appearance and his hair is the pinnacle of that masterpiece – it’s so prominent that it even has its own Facebook page!
The Harvey Specter hairstyle and what to ask your barber for.
It’s all about the pompadour look. To arrive at this hairstyle, you will need to enough length on top to create some height on that pompadour. Ask your barber to take your sides and back down to a short length. Preferably using scissors but if you opt for clippers, don’t go shorter than a grade 4.
Remember you will need to create a hard parting so the length on top needs to compliment the sides in a contrasting sort of way – it’s a wonderful, juxtaposed type of cut which looks fantastic when it is executed expertly.
If in doubt, don’t hesitate to show your barber a photo of the style.
What Product To Use
Next comes the actual look once the cut is perfect. To obtain the shine and strong hold style, you’ll need a pomade. Our luxury pomade is designed mainly for thicker hair but it is great for getting that slick Specter look with the impressive side parting to match. When you get home with your new Harvey Specter hairstyle, you can make sure it is maintained with a few simple steps. Firstly, after showering and shampooing in lukewarm water, dry the hair gently and lightly with a towel. Warm up the pomade in your hand and run it through your hair from the roots lifting upwards and then use a hairdryer to get more volume.
Comb gently in an upward direction during this process and then manoeuvre it to help define the side parting. What do you mean that didn’t sound simple? Of course, anything sounds complex until you’ve done it once and then it becomes almost involuntary.
