This is a classic cut dating back to the mid 1920s that’s regained some ground after being featured in a variety of period drama TV shows like Boardwalk Empire. It works great for a variety of hair types from fine to thick provided your hair is straight and not curly. It’s boardroom appropriate with a suit and tie or pub-proud with a beer in your hand and a beard on your face. It’s versatile, easy to maintain and can make you look clean-cut or bad to the bone. Ideally, you want to get your barber to keep about two inches on top but short on the sides and well faded into the nape and sideburns. For those barbers using the trimmer, ask them to stick with a number one and fade from there.
