Tennant

The Inspiration: David Tennant | The 10th Doctor | Doctor Who The Story: We had cut Mike's hair once before, and realized too late that he looked an awful lot like David Tennant.

The Tennant is a haircut that will have smart and nerdy fangirls the … [Keep Reading]

Draper

The Inspiration: Jon Hamm | Don Draper | Mad Men The Story: This is Natalie's dad, who, even in his 60s, doesn't seem to be aging. At all.

The Inspiration: The holy ashtray of Schorem The Story: This is Paul, a high school teacher, and still somehow one of the most cheery people in the world.

At Schorem, our favorite barbershop in the whole world, this is their most requested cut, so they named it after the shop (Schorem is Dutch slang for … [Keep Reading]

Engineer

The Hair Inspiration: Ruler straight and perfectly square The Story: Tien is an industrial designer who is what you might call "particular." He is always immaculately dressed, and likes his hair sharp and square all over, so we engineered this cut just for him.
