We must start with some terminology on this one. Contours are your basic (usually) side parted men’s haircuts with some level of tapering, and with the blend area following the contour of the head.
An Executive Contour is classic haircut that Schorem coined the name of, although you may hear this cut referred to in various places as a business cut, a side part, or the term we are trying to help kill, a “combover” (if you aren’t really bald on top and combing hair over to hide it, it is a side part, not a comb over. The difference between a Pompadour and an Executive Contour is mostly in the top. With a Pompadour you can part it, comb it back standard pomp style, or just wear it loose. With an Executive Contour you can only do the second two of those.
The reason for this is that while a Pompadour is cut evenly from one side of the top section to the other, with an Executive Contour it is parted to one side, and the top is only cut where it connects to the opposite side. What we’re saying is, an Executive Contour that is finger length, or even a couple of inches on top, is not an actual thing. That gets more into a sub genre sometimes called the College Contour, or our spin on that popular look, The Gaard.
