The classic Edgar haircut is perfect for men with medium to short hair. It usually involves cutting a medium-length Caesar cut into a long razor-style cut with bangs swept to one side. Your barber then shortens the top to form a clean line along your forehead. While clean and neat, the classic Edgar cut still has an edgy and stylish appeal thanks to its distinctly defined lines.
Many people confuse the cut of an Edgars with that of a Mohawk. Both are named “Edgar” and both are used on men. But the style of an Edgars is more edgy and more feminine, more hip and more contemporary than a Mohawk. In contrast, a traditional Mohawk makes a very loud statement with its razor-like tips. This article will discuss the differences between an Edgars and a traditional Mohawk for a modern hairstyle for a young man.
The Edgar haircut is named after its groom, Garreth Edgar. A native of St. Louis, Garreth grew up in the area surrounding St. Louis University. Young Garreth loved sports, especially football, and he was very good at playing both offense and defense on the football team during his high school years. He then attended college at the University of North Texas, where he played both defensive tackle and tight end.
After going to college and starting to play professional football, Garreth went into the music industry. He released four albums throughout his career, and although his sound is less distinctive compared to that of today’s talents, it is still a nice, smooth, and soft sound that fits the Edgar haircut style. One of his best selling songs was “Xxplosive” which featured the smooth vocals of Delightful D and was released on the 1997 album “A Day In the Life.”
The Edgar haircut has a faded but rounded shape to it, almost like a Mohawk with the sides being thicker than the center. It can either be straight (long side-swept) or slightly curled (side-parted). Both styles are common amongst most men, as it compliments any facial structure and looks very good on almost everyone. This type of hairstyle is also best for medium hair texture because it adds texture without looking bulky or textured.
For those who do not want a blunt bang, a better option is to use side-parted or tapered bangs and create a much better impact. Although it may take more time and effort to achieve, having long hair naturally creates a better effect than short hair, and it gives an edgier appearance. Choosing an Edgar haircut with longer sides and a tapered bang is a better alternative than choosing short sides and a blunt bang. The shorter sides and blunt bang will look too flat for most people, and both will make the face look boxy and weak.
If you are short and you are considering an Edgar haircut, then you should definitely choose a shorter length. This type of hair is best suited for those who have a narrow forehead and small chin. Even if you have thick hairs, it will not look shapeless on you if your hair is too long. For example, if you have strawberry blonde hair, then it will look shapeless on someone with a more narrow face. As such, you should go for a shorter length for your own personal reasons and try different haircuts to find one that suits you best.
The Caesar hairstyle is another popular choice for people who have the edgier looks. People with this type of haircut generally prefer it because it does not feature a blunt bang which can make the face look weak and boxy. People with straight and wavy hair can also choose this hairstyle, but they should make sure that their bangs are short so that it does not look as if they are sticking out their upper lip. If you have short sides and a shaggy Caesar haircut, then you will be able to achieve the shaggy look which can actually look quite good on you.
