How to get hair like Brad


You may not have Brad Pitt's jawline, but at least you can attempt to recreate his haircut, as seen in new Terence Mallick film , out today. It's set to be the haircut of the summer.

The 'do in question is yet another take on the US military-inspired crew cut. Be warned though, it works best when teamed with Pitt's suburban outfit - flat-fronted chinos, work shirts and cardigans - and you'll also need to take your headshape and hair type into account before heading down the barber's with Brad's pic in your wallet.

What to ask for:

1 The hair around the back and sides of your head should be clipped to around 3mm, tapering to around 3cm at your crown.

2 At the front, leave 3.5cm - you will later sculpt this into a neat side parting using a light wax.

 

3 The key is that the cut should, first and foremost, follow the shape of your head and look neat without looking harsh. “Buzz cut” is not a term that should be mentioned at any point in the conversation.
