Cool Barbershop Picture of Ivy League haircut

Photo Cool Barbershop Picture of Ivy League haircut
Here is an interesting old-school barbershop picture of the Ivy League haircut. Also known as a collegiate haircut or Harvard haircut, the Ivy League is a tapered cut on the sides and back with a backward taper on the top, leaving a longer forelock (front) than crown (in terms of hair length).

The picture below of the Ivy League cut is done with a medium to long length taper. What this means is that the taper ends up with a high clipper number, something like a number #4 clipper length. Such a taper length for the Ivy League haircut was popular before the 1960s, although a short taper in the Ivy League is now more popular among the Ivy League university students. The hair length on the top of an Ivy League is a short length, from 1 to 2 inches.

The hair is parted to the side as with the classic businessman haircut where the only difference is that the Ivy league has a longer forelock (compared to crown), which is something that isn't present in the businessman haircut.

RE: Cool Barbershop Picture of Ivy League haircut
Good pic admin. Goes to show the old barbers had it down to a science back then. Just for the record, here is a pic of how the taper on the top should look like for the Ivy League haircut. It shows from a side view how the hair slowly decreases in length as it goes from the front to the back.
