The Flattop
Flattop Haircut

I always enjoy working on Anthony -- he's got a great head of hair and is always willing to try something new. This is a tall flattop, tapered to a #1 blade on the sides and back, cut short at the crown with a smooth transition to a longer front. The nape is tapered tight and finished with a straight razor outline. I styled this haircut using Grant's Pomade. This haircut can be a fairly high maintenance haircut as it requires styling each morning and frequent trips to the barbershop to maintain the shape of the haircut.
