Get the look: Tommy Shelby

Saturday, August 24, 2019

It's been a long time coming, but the wait is finally over and Peaky Blinders is back on our screens.

Season five of the television phenomenon will see Tommy Shelby battle new enemies - both within the establishment and the criminal underworld - as he takes his seat as the new MP for Birmingham South.

Shelby's iconic haircut has fuelled the growth of the barbering industry across the UK. But how easy is it to replicate? And does it suit everyone?

Here's our quick guide to getting styled by order of the f*cking Peaky Blinders!

WHO DOES IT SUIT

This is a haircut made for actor Cillian Murphy, with his high cheekbones and square, masculine jawline.

The shortness of the sides suits a slim face best, so bear that in mind.

If you have a rounder face, you might want something with a bit more height on top to elongate your face.

WHAT TO ASK YOUR BARBER FOR

Ask for a crop haircut but with a longer fringe, sweeping to whichever side works best for you.

This style can be adapted to suit your personal preference, so the sides don't have to be shaved back to skin.

The look is still effective with a #2 or #3 guard, which gives the haircut a softer finish.

WHAT PRODUCTS TO USE

This style needs a product with a matte finish and a little bit of hold.

Hanz de Fuko's Claymation (£18 at sovereign-store.com) - a clay/wax hybrid - fits the bill perfectly.

You might also want to invest in a can of Hanz de Fuko Dry Shampoo as well. This is a good pre-style product which will help give you the perfect blank canvas for your Shelby look.
