First, you need to book an appointment with your favourite barber at Pall Mall Barbers.  Go online or give us a ring.  Once you’re there, ask your barber for a short scissor cut on the back and sides, giving a softer look than having the hair clippered. An even cut through the top is then needed and this is connected to the sides.

Dermot O’Leary has the front of his hair cut short to show off his impressive hairline, but if you’re not so lucky and don’t have such a perfect hairline then leave the front of the hair a little longer. Add texture by point cutting into the hair when dry it’s fully dry.  This is vital to achieving this, as without it thick hair can look incredibly bulky and can seem to lack any definition.

Finally, the last stage for your barber to get the right cut for the Dermot O’Leary look is to line out with trimmers and a razor and give a tapered finish to the base of the neck. Blow dry your hair using a small round brush pushing the hair to one side and slightly back – this avoids the comb overlook. To get a shine on the hair but with good hold, use Pall Mall Barbers Flexible Shine. This is a great product and a little goes a long way.
