Never have fans of the popular TV show THE WALKING DEAD been more anxious for the new season start! Everybody’s praying that their favorite character doesn’t die in season 7…
Anyway, we don’t want to spoil too much to those who didn’t catch the season finally of season 6. We do, however, want to give you guys an awesome step-by-step tutorial on the hairstyle of one of the biggest crowd pleasers of the tv series: GLENN RHEE (Steven Yeun).
Staying alive is all about the hairstyle
Living in a post-apocalyptic version of the state of Georgia does make it rather difficult to maintain a neat hairstyle. Even though Glenn seems to be one of the high-risk characters – frequently appearing on screen with zombie blood all over his face from a near-death experience – his hairstyle stays surprisingly stylish.
If your everyday life is just as frenzied as Glenn’s, this tutorial will show you how to achieve his cool hairdo so that you can become just as good at avoiding walkers out there! Or perhaps improve your chances with your local ‘Maggie’…? Here we go!
Step 1: Clean Out The Zombie Guts
Get your hair nice and ready for the haircut with a quick wash using By Vilain Skyline Shampoo. It removes any old products and makes it easier to manage throughout the remaining steps. And finishing off with a quality conditioner like By Vilain Skyline Conditioner.
Step 2: Fixate Your Hair
Straighten out the hair by running a comb through it, and then part it into sections. This is done by forming a line from both sides of the temple of the head which connects together at the back. The hair is then combed away to both sides of the parting (either up or down) using a By Vilain Comb.
Lock the hair into place with a quick blowdry, or use clamps for a stronger fixture.
Step 3: Cut It To Bits!
Clip the hair on the sides (from 9 and 15 cm at side-parting to 1,5 at ears) in a gradient that goes from thin at the bottom, to thick at the top. Also cut the back (9-15cm at top center gradient – increased length towards left side – to 2 cm at neck), the top center (from 9-15cm, top center gradient to 9 and 15cm parted fringe). Finish this step by trimming the hair beneath the side-parting into its final form using a pair of scissors.
Step 4: Drown It
Spray your hair with By Vilain Freestyler – this makes your hair more susceptible to hair products and also helps distribute the product better.
Then apply By Vilain Sidekick pre-styling spray into the moist hair. This prepares for the next step.
Step 5: Burn And Straighten
Groom with brush and blowdryer. Blow-dry from front to back while also grooming in the same direction with the brush. This melts the Sidekick into the hair, strengthening the hold and locks the hair into position.
Blow-drying from the front pushes the hair back so it rests on the hair at the top center, giving it the “slicked back” shape.
Step 6: Thin Out The Flock
Thin out the hair with a pair of thinning scissors to make the hair light and add volume.
Step 7: Protect The Perimeter
Using a pair of scissors, create a clear outline around the edges near the side, back and ears, in order to separate the skin and hair.
Now that the hairstyle is nearly done, you’ve to make sure everything looks nice. Make sure to trim any areas you may have missed.
Step 8: Petrify With Wax
Rub a small scoop of By Vilain Powermade and By Vilain Gold Digger in the hair to pull off the do’. The combined properties of the two waxes help to achieve a strong hold for this particular style.
Gently groom the wax into shape using both hands.
A small amount of Sidekick can be sprayed on the hands and rubbed into the hair for extra hold if needed.
Step 9: Go In For The Kill
To create the final touch and get the hairstyle into perfect form, use a brush to create nice smooth grooves from top to bottom. Using the rear of a point tailed comb, gently draw lines in the hair to get the small details just right.
Boom! You now have a certified Steven Yeun hairstyle. Go out and slay in style!
