Once in awhile I just see a haircut that makes me say, “Damn. That’s perfect.” This is one of those haircuts — complete perfection — a flawless tight taper. A classic short haircut Of course, it doesn’t hurt the case that the model is flawless himself. This haircut is an aggressively tight taper with a clean side part — done with a bare blade clipper at the bottom and faded into considerable length on top. This is a super short haircut, but because of the way it is groomed is absolutely appropriate for a business setting. Alternatively, this style could be worn a little messy if the guy wanted a more casual look. For styling, I would recommend a good medium shine pomade or paste.
This haircut, obviously, works on someone with thick, straight hair, but you could also put the same haircut on a guy with some wave in his hair — how nice would this look with a well-groomed wavy top? Either way, this haircut reminds me of the classic groomed styles of the 1920’s. The look is fairly trendy today, but I think it is timeless. A clean, classic taper with a side part never goes out of style — it is the quintessential mens’s haircut.
