The Ultimate Men’s Cut: Try This Movie-Star Technique



It’s all in the scissors, says Joico Global Artistic Director, Richard Mannah, of his new heartthrob creation: a completely versatile cut for men that leaves plenty of length on the top to change things up as the mood strikes. Watch the cut unfold here – and see how Richard uses strategic stylers to add magic to the look.

It was literally inspired by a movie star
The creation is Richard’s version of Brad Pitt’s cut from a few years ago – sexy, with a little length.
The only tool you need is scissors
With the exception of a razor to clean up the neck, Richard goes strictly old-school on this ‘do.

It adds some levity and balance
Richard’s client’s hair was too long, too thick, and completely out of shape, he explains. “It was actually asymmetric before I cut it.”

You can change it up
By styling it back or adding texture, you can create a completely different vibe.

It works for nearly everyone
The look lends itself to all hair types; though Richard cautions that the technique needs to be tweaked a bit on curly hair, which shrinks a lot when dry.
