10534552_678674375554366_7438591827269523243_nHaving gained notoriety in the past several months for my precision in vintage men’s haircuts, I thought I would elaborate on why I love them so much.

You’ve seen them around. Having made a comeback in recent mainstream media and in trendy circles alike, these haircuts are everywhere. I’ve done them on clients who hang out in the Old City in Knoxville, to men who speak in front of Congress.

The pompadour, the low ‘scumbag’ fades, the hard parts, the dapper gentleman, the 50’s greaser. I love them all. Every time a client sits in my chair and says he saw one of my pompadours and wants the same, my heart swells a little with pride.

As a stylist, I know how difficult some of these can be to pull off. There has to be an understanding of what hair type will work, what won’t, and a huge amount of technical skill required. One of my now regular clients came in and told me a scary story about his last stylist getting halfway through one of these haircuts and admitted to not knowing how to finish it. Products are an absolute necessity, I always have to explain. No one wakes up with a perfect vintage haircut, they take some time to style each morning.

There’s something about seeing a well groomed man with one of these haircuts. For me, they always conjure up the look and feel of decades passed. The Roaring Twenties. The Rockin’ Fifties. Prohibition. Al Capone. Pretty Boy Floyd. Elvis Presley. James Dean. Those eras were the epitome of cool. Men were well dressed, and they cared about their appearance.

I absolutely love being able to recreate these vintage looks and by doing that, bringing a touch of the past into the present.
