Classic Taper


This taper cut uses clippers to create a tight and clean look around the sides and neckline. It is blended up to create longer length at the crown area and point-cut to create more texture. Leaving it longer on top allows versatility in styling.

A Classic Taper cut refers to the sides and back being cut shorter, while leaving length through the top. The length on top can be left slightly longer than the sides or leave lots of length and disconnect the top for a more fashion-forward look.

Guys should have this cut trimmed up every 4 weeks to keep it looking tailored. Though blow-drying will add a bit of maintenance to your daily routine, it creates the needed amount of volume for this look.

All face shapes can wear this classic cut. This style works with all hair textures that are straight to wavy, with fine to medium density.


Dry hair with blow dryer. Apply a pea-sized amount of DESIGNLINE Held Up Texturizing Paste into hands. Apply to hair, starting at the ends, creating texture in a swirl pattern and finishing with the front.

To switch up the style, on damp hair, apply DESIGNLINE Volumizing Gel and slick back or create a casual side part. Allow to dry naturally.
