Weldon Barber Spokane is always in search of the latest in styling trends to help our clients look sharp and sensible. In Weldon Barber Spokane’s recent inquiries, we’ve seen the return of another of history’s classic styles.
The beginning of the new millennium has seen a huge movement toward the clean-cut looks from our past. In a recent post on Weldon Barber Spokane’s blog, we discussed the return of the pompadour. The style, cut short on the sides with the top styled up and back, is reminiscent of James dean.
Now, in the latest trend of this movement we’re seeing a return of a style closely related to the pompadour that finds its roots in the 1930’s. Just as with the pompadour, this style is cut short on the sides and long on the top. However, the cut, coined as an “under-cut” in Sweden, is greased back on the top using a small amount of pomade. The result is a nostalgic look reminiscent of an era of tailored style that focuses on quality in the fine details. The New York Times has denoted this style as “a go-to haircut not just for Web designers in heritage-brand clothing, but for fashion designers and D.J.’s in the style capitals of Europe.”
The trick to successfully pulling off the under-cut is a sharp cut. It is important to have a quality hair stylist to assure the sharpness that this cut demands and define the short areas of hair verses the long in an appealing way.
