For the top hair you want to point cut into it at about three to four inches and taper the hair off towards the crown of the head.
How To Style:
This Dry Eye hairstyle from The Gentlemen is a great haircut and style if you have lots of thick hair and are looking for something to do with it. This look will make you feel like that professional gangster boss. Stylish but with huge bad boy energy. It is not recommended to do this hairstyle if you have a receding hairline as it will make it appear more prominent.
How To Cut:
Book with you barber and ask for the back and sides to a cut down to a #3 all over. You want the hair on top to be a bit longer around four to five inches. You don’t want the hair on top to be too long just enough to style it back. Then for a medium height fade to complete the look.
How To Style:
TIP: If you want your haircut to look as filthy rich as Henry Golding’s the secret is to go for regular trims. Rich people get their haircut frequently, so they have no dry ends. No dry hair means you hair stays hydrated, shiny for longer.
