The High and Tight Hairstyle Ideas from the 40s
For sure, there seems to be a distinct way of trends in creeping back into the current trends of style after years of their popularity. The hairstyle for men are no exception to such resurrection.
The proliferation of classic cut from the 40s is a welcome resurgence. Different from the fades, these ever-lasting cuts serve iconic image in the realm of American culture. Let me show you one inspiration of hairstyle from the 40s.
Perhaps there is no masculine hairstyle which defines the 40s as much as the high and tight hairstyle, which is the derivation from the closely cropped military style. This hairstyle keeps the back and side short, but allow for more length on the top.
In order to customize the look, you need to determine on how tight of the cut that you want, which means how closely you wish to shear the hair on the side and back.
A little bit more length on the side and back, from around ½ inch to one inch or even two. This will allow you to create a more refined as well as conservative look, reminiscent of the great actor of the time. If you opt for going shorter in the side and back, you need to include a hairstyle which is referred to as the undercut or fade, in today’s trends.
These style are created for an edgier hairstyle but still look neat. Likewise, the degree of this fade – or how short hair transitions into the long hair- is determinant of the severity of the hairstyle. The more contrast between the lengths, the more daring the style will be.
