Dating back to the days of the Roman Empire, the Caesar haircut quite possibly may be the most classic hairstyle that is known to man. While it may have roots in ancient times, this haircut is by no means outdated but instead, with a variety of fresh interpretations and loads of styling twists, the Caesar haircut is not only totally on trend but an extremely versatile and flattering look for men of all types!
The most defining feature of this haircut is a short fringe which today can be styled in various ways. This is a haircut which is a staple for barbers and hairstylists to learn so you should be able to request it by name at any barbershop or salon. The basic rule of thumb for a Caesar haircut is that the hair on the front, top, back, and sides should all be of the same length.
