This is a youthful and modern hairstyle that has a classic tapered effect, but with extra length on top. This is a look for someone who likes a fresh trim, but still wants to look slightly rough and tumble. To get this style, ask your hairdresser for short hair at the sides and a gradual taper until the top, with a length of roughly 2.5-3" up top. To get maximum volume and hold you can use hair wax.
This is a great look for a college student or young professional. It's slightly edgy but manages to look put together at the same time. Pair it with a button up shirt and slacks during the week, and a t-shirt and jeans for the weekend.
