The Inspiration: Early half of the 20th century gentlemen The Story: This is a very thick head of stiff hair with a prominent parietal ridge, so it is really easy to have an uncontrollable shock of hair on the top. The large differentiation between the top and sides gives hair enough length to bend and be able to style. A Contour is named for the way the weight of the hair follows the contour … [Keep Reading]

The Inspiration: Brad Pitt | Lt. Aldo Raine | Inglorious Basterds The Story: This gent came in with this cut in mind, but also wanted to be able to polish this rough style up for work. We also went a bit shorter, to give him some extra growout time. The Basterd, similar to a contour, has a weight line that neatly contours the bones of the mid-head, but with a rougher weight line and more … [Keep Reading]
