Lil’ Flip, or Victor V (insert heart eye emoji here) is a rapper from Atlanta with a
unique sense of style. His hair is often slicked back and to the side, but his real
claim to fame is his popular flat-top hairstyle. If you love Lil’ Flip as much as we
do and want to copy his hairstyle, read on for some helpful tips. We have all seen
the classic flat-top haircut before — it was very popular in the ’90s, especially
among rappers. However, unlike those old-school versions of this haircut that
were boxy, high, and tight, Lil’ Flip has taken it a step further by adding an
undercut combined with shorter sides and back. This creates an illusion of even
more height on top while still keeping things neat around the ears without any
volume. To get the look yourself you’ll just need a little know-how about how to
style your hair like Lil’ Flip.
What You’ll Need
Let’s start with the obvious: you’ll need a haircut like the one above. The best
way to achieve this look is to visit a professional hairdresser to get the cut that
works best for you. Your stylist can also advise you on the best products to use
to achieve the desired look. Now, onto the other important things, you’ll need to
create this hairstyle. You’ll need a wide-tooth comb, hair dryer, and a good
pomade/styling product that works best for your hair type. As for hair length, the
best length for this hairstyle is a medium-long length and is best suited for
individuals with medium-thick hair. Note that if your hair is really thin, you may
not be able to pull this look off.
The Basics: Shower and Dry Hair
After you get your haircut, you’ll want to make sure your hair is clean before you
start styling. Always wash your hair before you style it — especially if you are
planning to use pomade; this will help remove any excess oil from your hair and
prep it for styling. After you’ve showered, let your hair air dry. You can speed up
the drying process by blasting it with a hair dryer once you’ve applied your styling
Layering and Texturing
Once your hair is dry, you can start styling it. First, section off the top portion of
your hair, away from your ears. Once you have done this, you can start creating
layers and texturing your hair. For this hairstyle, you’ll want to create a relatively
low, textured, messy fringe. To do this, simply take the section of hair above your
brow line and twist it towards the back, and secure it with a bobby pin. You can
apply some hairspray or texturizing spray to your fringe to help it hold its shape
and stay in that perfect messy state. Once you’ve created your messy fringe, you
can proceed with the rest of your hair. You can either create long, loose waves,
or you can use a straightener to create more of a slicked-back look.
Now, we’ll go through the different products you can use to create this hairstyle.
Pomade – Pomade is a classic hair styling product made from oil and wax. It’s
best applied to damp hair and can be used to create various hairstyles. It works
especially well with this hairstyle and gives it a more textured, messy look. Wax –
Another classic hair product is wax, which can be applied to wet or dry hair to
give your hair more texture and volume and can also be used to hold different
hairstyles in place. Putty – Putty is a styling product that is usually used to create
messy, textured hairstyles like the one above. It’s a great product for those
whose hair is on the thinner side because it can help give your hair some extra
volume and texture. Hair Cream – Hair cream is a light styling product that can be
used to create different hairstyles and give your hair some extra texture and
volume. This product can be used on dry or damp hair. Dust/Powder – Dust and
powder are great products to use if you’re going for a slicked-back hairstyle.
They are best applied to dry hair and will help keep your hair slicked back and
out of the way.
The first way you can style your hair like Lil’ Flip is by blow-drying your hair with a
round brush and a blow dryer. To do this, you will need to have a round brush and
a blow dryer. Once your hair is dry, you can apply a pomade or styling product to
add more texture.
The other way you can style your hair like Lil’ Flip is by using a pomade or hair
cream to add volume to your hair. After applying the product, you can either use
your hands or a comb to style your hair. You can also use a volumizing hair
product like a root lifter for added volume.
Flat-Top Twist Out
If you want to create a hairstyle similar to the one Lil’ Flip wore in his music video
for the song “Da B Side”, then you can try out a twist. This hairstyle is perfect
for people with thicker hair but can be done with any type of hair as long as it is
long enough. To create the twist out, you will need a wide-tooth comb, a
hairbrush, and a styling product. Begin by sectioning off the top portion of your
hair and then parting it into two sections. Section off the top half of your hair and
then the lower half right above the nape of your neck. Twist each section of hair
away from your face, making sure they are as tight as possible. After you have
twisted your hair, you can braid it if it’s long enough. Once you have finished
braiding the lower half of your hair, you can take the upper section of hair and
twist it into a bun, securing it with bobby pins. Finish the look off by applying a
styling product like putty or hair cream to your hair.
If you want to create a slightly more formal look, you can try creating a bun out of
your hair. You can do this by sectioning off the top portion of your hair and then
twisting it and securing it with bobby pins. After you have finished creating the
bun, you can add some styling products to give it some extra texture.
As you can see, styling your hair like Lil’ Flip isn’t that hard. You just need the
right haircut and the right products. Remember, if your hair is very thin, you may
not be able to pull off this hairstyle. If that’s the case, you can try styling your hair
like Lil’ Flip with a longer, looser hairstyle.
