How To Cut A Low And Tight Side Part

This style has evolved from the classic styles of the 1950’s where a short back and sides became a common request in the barbershop. The basis of this haircut is the low fade and the tight finish which highlights the top section of the hair. The top section is left slightly longer to allow for styling and providing that final shape to the look. The side part gives the hairstyle definition and a touch of good old fashioned class.

How To Cut A Low and Tight Side Part

In order to nail this style, length needs to be maintained through the top section of the hair as well as the fringe. Secondly, the back and sides need to be finely sculpted, using the clipper over comb technique to assure an even fade or gradient from bottom to top, leaving slightly more length in the hair as you move upward. This creates a tight look, complimented by the styling of the Modern Pompadour, essentially highlighting the top section of the hair and the polished look of this style.
