What are cowlicks? Small areas of hair that grow in very distinct directions.
They are usually found along the hairline and can make it hard to style one’s hair. Cowlicks’ unruly growth patterns are more noticeable in shorter hair, making men’s styles and bangs especially hard to work with.
If you have cowlicks, the single most important thing you can do is to start taming them as soon as you step out of the shower. When your hair is soaking wet, comb it in the direction you want it to lay. Apply a styling product to give the section hold and use a blowdryer to set the hair into place. Don’t give the cowlick the opportunity to air-dry at all, as it will be harder to control!
