Me at age 6. Prices are higher, haircut's the same.
Anyone else get the 'Hitler' comment on a short back and sides haircut? I know it's just a standard cut of the era, but it's slightly disconcerting to hear such comments, even if they are flippant. For the record, it was family members from the Mediterranean who made these comments, not anyone here in the UK.
I have never receved a Hitler comment. You have more chance of getting this type of comments, if your hair are cut and all shave on the back and side very high.
Yes definitely, short from the top of the ear down. Remember folks from this era are dirt poor. So mainly very short or short enough to look good and save money.
Next time just take a picture of someone who has your desired hair style to the stylist.
I did use a photo. And I am happy with the result.
However I think it may be that Hitler is simply the most recognisable figure of the 30s-40s to the majority of the population so their minds go there when they see anything vaguely of that time.
I know some of the loungers aren't too keen on this style of haircut, but I like it. It's hard to get a vintage style cut that will work with my really thick, dense hair. It's so much easier to style when there's no hair on the sides to worry about.
What do you all think?
Looks great but I would've wanted a more gradual transition down the sides and back. You have great hair, though!

Pera.T, you and I have the same hairstyle, and for the same reasons. Like you, my hair is very thick, and looks funny if the sides are not cut short. I figure that this haircut is Golden Era enough, as Michael Pitt's character sports it on Boardwalk Empire.
