Reminiscent of those 1940’s dapper ‘do’s this style has been rising in popularity for quite some time now. If you haven’t caught this train, here’s a post to help you get on it! Men, and even women (!) are getting down with it and it is sure fire as heck about time you get down with it too! I mean, It just reeks of sexiness, am I right? And don’t worry! There are TONS of different versions of this cut to choose from to keep up with your own unique style.
Thankfully, men’s vintage-ish haircuts are coming back into mainstream fashion — whether through the influence of Mad Men, or the indie fashion of people like Arcade Fire front man Win Butler, or European soccer/football stars, or Justin Timberlake— and so it should be easier for stylists and barbers to know what you’re talking about when you say you want a men’s vintage cut.
Luckily, most styles of the 1930s to 50s have these basics in common: a short back and sides (also known as “high and tight”) and a longer top, especially near the front of the head. However, one should know that there are still a lot of variables at play. Where the variations mostly come in is how high, how tight, how long on top, and how dramatic the fade you want between the sides and top.
