Was all about black&white when I was doing that 40s thing, it's really tough but to be honest mostly just like the smell of the stuff

Black and white adds so much weight to the hair though

If you want that slick look I'd add the tiniest bit of wax to the air, and then use clay for the most part.

Pomades are oil based and I personally hate that (I like to wash it all out with ease). If you have fine / straight hair then it'll just weigh it down loads as well and look really flat; even waxes will do that which is why you only need to tiniest of amounts.

Clays give more volume and don't weigh it down as much - it's more natural.

He did say tough to be fair, but yeah it's only good for that super slick Hitler youth look

I don't use gel products because I'm wary of the stickiness. I've noticed that my hands get too sticky and hair gets pulled out, haha.

I also have long hair. I usually set it in the style I want it and wet my hair. If I'm putting it in a pony tail, I wet the hair first. (Just dampening it is fine, but whatever works for you.) Then I tie it back and use Garnier Fructis Style Bamboo Flexihold. Adjust with some water, and my hair is good to go. I've also used one of their hair gel spray product (I'd rather not put globs of gel on my hands, haha) and that worked fine as well.

I know that to make your hair stay in a specific hair part you should pin it for a few days, so I don't see why your hair wouldn't stay back with the gel/product either. It might take a lot longer though.

hairspray wise treseme freeze hold is unbeatable, but you need to be sparse with it and some people don't like the smell. Tigi Rockaholic fun times is pretty good too. This is my hair with treseme, not to different from yours length wise(no homo)

Something very satisfying from getting the tweezers on it and picking it off

Highly discourage doing it yourself, had multiple friends do it and it turned out terrible/hilarious
Your hair needs get bleached once/twice and then recoloured blonde. I've done it myself and although it's fun for a while it did get boring fast imo. You'll have to wash it with special shampoo to avoid 'brassiness' and when your original hair colour grows back to about 1,5 inch it looks pretty shit. Right know I either have to grow it out till I can cut the blonde out completely or risk frosted tips. Fun times.

John Freida Sheer Blonde "Go Blonder" shampoo really does the trick.

Downside is it kinda dries out your hair.
