Lately their seems to be a bit of confusion on exactly what  popular male haircut you are seeing on every dude is called, and how to ask for it in a barbershop.  The style above is referred to as either a “Ivy League” or a “Side Part” . Simple, defined part (aka a “Hard Part”), clean around the ears, full on the sides (no skin showing), and a nice clean taper on the neckline. Looked good back in the 30′s and 40′s when it became the standard for Men’s style, and looks good today when performed right. The photo below is of a “Comb Over” . When a obvious balding male takes every last strand of hair he has remaining and tries to cover the balding area. Never has been a good look, never will, and this barbershop wont touch them. ATTENTION:  Barbershop patron beware of what you ask for, because the next time you ask for a “Comb-Over” your barber might just give ya one !
