Focus on coaxing long strands from the front and crown to fall forward. Francis suggests making a deep side part in wet hair and drying it 85 percent of the way before coating it with a bit of glossing cream like Davines for Wizards No. 4 Glossy Modeling Putty ($25; davines.com for stores). Then place a small, round brush on top of a 1-inch section at the crown. Brush down and across the forehead as you blow-dry. When finished, use pomade to slick the sides and define pieces in front, says Francis. We like Serge Normant's Meta Form Sculpting pomade ($25; sergenormant.com).
