1. Thomas Shelby Haircut
The iconic hairstyle of the iconic leader of Peaky Blinders Thomas Shelby is referred to as an Undercut with Textured Top. To achieve this 1920s Birmingham's roaring look:
1. Preparation: Start with slightly longer hair on top and shorter sides. The top should be around 4-6 inches in length.
2. The Undercut: Ask your barber for a classic undercut, where the sides and back are buzzed very short. The transition from the long top to the short sides should be sharp.
3. Textured Top: The top is the focal point. Use a matte hair product (such as clay or pomade) to create a textured, messy look. Apply it evenly and run your fingers through your hair to achieve the desired disheveled appearance.
4. Maintenance: Regular trims every 3-4 weeks are essential to maintain the sharpness of the undercut. Keep the top at the desired length.
5. Variations: To update the style for 2023, consider experimenting with different hair products for a shinier or wetter look. Add a fade on the sides for a more contemporary twist, or let the top grow slightly longer for a modern take on the classic Thomas Shelby look.
Murphy's character Shelby's hairstyle exudes a unique blend of ruggedness and sophistication nailing his role and the fashion of the 1920s era, making it a timeless choice for those who appreciate vintage charm with a touch of modern flair.
