This is my next hair style for the next few months as my hair grows out on the top. I am currently only at 2 inches on the top.
Where I get confused is the hair from the part down the side of the head. In the "typical Gatsby" photo above that was taken in a barbershop, it looks really short on the sides. But in the Redford photo below, it looks like it's 3 inches down the side of his head.
If I go for the longer sides, what happens to the hair that is below the three inch hair at the part?
I mainly just don't want the sides to look like this.
It seems like barbers will either do the easy thing and make it too short on the sides or not touch the sides and let it bulk out.
I can start a "hair journey" thread, but I couldn't find a way to post my own photos, just links.
