What is the Tom Holland haircut called?
Tom Holland varies in length between his haircuts. For example, the Tom Holland haircut in Infinity War is around 5-6 inches on top, but recently he has been wearing his hair a little shorter in press tours for Spider-Man Far From Home.
Tom Holland always goes for a traditional scissor cut with his hairstyle, tailored to him and his hair.
The back and sides are taken short and tapered, but never down to "scalp exposure", so you won't see Tom Holland with any harsh fades on the back and sides.
How To Ask Your Barber For The Tom Holland Haircut
The most important thing with this haircut will be to grow your hair out first. A lot of people will want this hairstyle without the length, so grow your hair out to slightly longer than this hairstyle and then get your barber to add shape to it.
You'll also want to make sure that this haircut is tailored to you, and your hair. This won't work if you just try to replicate Tom's haircut. It has to be tailored to your hair.
With this being a personalised haircut, the best thing you can do is show a picture for reference, and then communicate with your barber to find the best variation for you.
If you are looking for an explanation for the cut though, then tell your barber you want a scissor cut all over blended into the sides (no undercuts here).
Take the sides down to before "scalp exposure" or to "finger length" with the hair tapered and tided up around the ears, but left natural. You don't want any harsh line ups with this one, just softly tidied around the ears and neck.
For finer or curlier hair then let your hair use it's natural texture.
For thicker hair get your barber to add texture throughout to help you style it.
Styling The Tom Holland Haircut
Styling the Tom Holland haircut will depend on what you like from a product, and your hair type -
For thicker hair -
You can really get away with any product you like. For a matte, natural finish use a clay like the Regal Gentleman Matte Clay
But to add an element of shine to the hair use a product that adds a little sheen, like Tom does, and try a paste or cream.
For fine/thin hair -
Use a product that gives a natural matte finish to the hair, like the Regal Gentleman Matte Clay
You don't want anything that adds too much separation to the hair or leaves it looking shiny, as this will only add to the look of thinning hair. So make sure to stick with matte finish products that don't add too much weight or bulk to the hair (stay firmly away from high shine pomades and gels).
Now it's time to get your very own variation on the Tom Holland haircut and release your inner superhero.
