When you're searching for fresh new hairstyle inspiration, our handpicked selection of street style looks is a great place to start. Whether you're looking for something right on-trend, a timeless classic or a combination of the two, you're basically guaranteed to find it. This slick undercut hairstyle caught the fashion photographer's attention and it's not hard to see why!

Right now, the undercut is big business in the male grooming world, enjoying a definite 'moment' in the limelight. It's a versatile look that allows you to make your face appear longer – thanks to the length on top – and leaves plenty of scope for adding height while showcasing your natural texture. The only strike against it is the fact you have to keep the sides and back perfectly trimmed, which means regular appointments with your stylist.

With the scales tipped in favor of this style, you might be wondering how you could pull off a slick version of it yourself, just like the guy in the photos above.

For any statement undercut, you need a cut with a lot of length on top while cropping the sides as close to buzz cut level as you dare.

Once the cut has been taken care of, apply some #TXT Shaping Pomade evenly throughout the top section of your hair. Add more as needed but stop once you have a good amount of hold all over – apply too much and you risk making the hair appear gunky. Next, run a comb from one side to the other to smooth everything into place. Use your hands to plump and shape the pomp as desired. For more height, use a blow-dryer to lift the hair at the root and fix it in place.

What do you think? Could this be your new go-to style?
