I recently had my stylist cut my hair in the "Hitler Youth"/Wehrmacht Officer's haircut, with the whitewall shaved sides, long on top, slicked back, and dyed blonde... my dilemma: I have tried many of today's styling gels to get that wet, slicked back look, but even though they hold well, there is still too much fullness/body to my hair. I want the look to be spot-on like the styles in the 30's and 40s you see in photos and films of the period... Can anyone recommend a specific hair tonic or pomade, or even gel, by name and company, that will give me not only control/hold, but the wet/slicked back styling???
I used Brylcreem, only thing is that u need to renew your pillowsheet more than normal, but all by all i loved Brylcreem and was happy about it. :milsmile:

Brylcreem works well. If you need a more hold, Royal Crown pomade is good. Its a bit more greasy than Brylcreem or gel though.

Great thread. I've been wearing a 30's hairstyle for some time now... before that, (way back when) I sported a 50's hairdo, which is essentially the same - as far as short trimmed sides and long front and top go.

Pomades and hair creams were also used in combinations. For instance, if you want to weigh down unruly hair, a harder, more wax-like pomade could be used. After "setting" the hairdo, some sheen could be added with a thinner, vaseline-like pomade.

Brilliantine and similar products is the way to go - for those who want to experience the 1930's in a more fragrant way, I recommend Sweet Georgia Brown pomade, the original in the red tin. Gives your hair a nice sheen, and the smell is just... well, fantastic. Really takes you back to the era... a must for the re-enactor ;) Though blondes need to be cautious - stuff may give your hair a bit of a yellowish tone.

A commercial site with pomades of the 1930's here.

A bit more? How more can it be than Brylcreem? :)
i managed to polish metal and let my vice on my work bench usable again thanks to the greasyness of Brylcreem. :)

Well, thanks for all the advice from you all....
I found a hair product that is "Old School"... at Walmart, no less.... it's called Groom & Clean, by Suave... holds pretty good, not greasy, and is water-based, and washes out with water, AND smells great, very much "old school"...

Btw, here are a couple photos of my cut, and color... sorry for the bad photos, was trying out new phone cam...

LOL! Indeed, hard to believe, but Royal Crown is close to the grease used with automotive work. ;)

I just started reenacting 9th SS Hohenstaufen, I am in the process of selecting a haircut for my impression, I am wondering if anyone has any good diagrams or photos of different types of haircuts. I am having a hard time choosing. Many thanks to all that help.

If you go back to the beginning of this thread, you will see posted many photos, and examples of hairstyles that you may be looking for... Including three photos I took showing the hairstyle I have currently, which is taken from the photo examples already posted.
