The Classic Medium Taper

This is an extremely popular style in our barbershop, many London gentlemen decide to go for this look as it quite elegant and gives you a professional look. With a taper, your hair gets shorter as it moves down your head. Typically, this taper will reach past your ear and go down to the nape of your neck, following your hair’s natural growth. The key here is evenness. A taper will gradually shorten your hair, resulting in a neat and even look all around. The possibilities are endless when you go for taper, it is basically up to you if you choose the longer or shorter version, our favourite one is the Medium Taper. Who should choose this look? It would really suit anyone, who wishes to have a professional, business look. You can flexibly style it with pomade or wax, or just leave it natural, it is your call! Need a styling product?
