What is the Nick Young aka Swaggy P haircut?

Greetings good people, I know it's been a while but I'm a one man show here people! Just kidding. Let's jump right into this post and the technical aspects of it.  First of all, I have to say this haircut isn't that difficult for barbers to perform and it's kind of fun actually. I like this haircut because It says to the public, "Hey I'm cool, and no I'm not ashamed to show the natural kinks and curls that my ancestors so gracefully bestowed upon me."  Whew that was a long quote. That's not to say that people who wear their hair close are denying their heritage or anything, I'm just saying that with this hairstyle you cannot hide it.

This haircut is similar to the South of France haircut that I previously wrote about. But it usually differs in 3 ways: The top of the hair is always longer, the sides on the top of the haircut are usually cut in a box to exaggerate the length, and the sides are usually tapered to the skin.

Notice how the sides of the top are cut in a box shape, also notice the length of the top and the tapered sides.

This haircut isn't difficult for us barbers at all. It's like doing a hightop fade without cutting the top, and leaving the back to grow. Fairly simple.  Also in order to achieve the kinks and curls associated with this cut I recommend these two products that we sell online and at the shop.

These two tools in the hands of a good barber or a savvy client can work wonders.
