Sorry about the repetitive topics about hair styles. Trying to create a particular style and looking at different techniques.

So i want to create this

Hair isn't quite long enough yet, but its getting there.

To create this, i'm assuming you'd need a pomade like Uppercut deluxe.

I have quite thick hair so i don't need to blow dry to create volume or texture. Would this style need a particular type of hairbrush and would you need hair spray to keep it in place?
