How To Get The Peaky Blinders Haircuts

With season 5 of Peaky Blinders coming to an end, we decided it was a good time to find out more about the hairstyles that have been taking over our screens once again.

The hairstyles and fashion have become an unexpected inspiration with many men rushing to the barbershop to get a variation on their favourite Peaky hairstyle.

We wanted to give you the lowdown on all of the Peaky season 5 haircuts, and who better to talk about the hairstyles than Peaky's very own hair and make up designer Loz Schiavo.

So take it away Loz...

What has changed with the Peaky Blinders Season 5 haircuts?

You might notice that the haircuts in each series are slightly different, and there's good reason for that. Loz says, "Well a lot has changed in Peaky Season 5. The Shelby's have been in the money and have become accustomed to grand things, so the haircuts and style reflect that."

"I made big changes to the ladies this year, as they have become more powerful, and... girl power! But each year I like to try and change the boys slightly, to match how they've grown in character."

What is the Tommy Shelby Peaky Blinders Haircut

The leader of the Peaky Blinders shapes the theme of series, with the harshness of this season's haircut matching his behaviour.

So what is the Tommy Shelby haircut? "The one thing I need to say about the Peaky cut is it's not an undercut, and there is definitely no fade. It's a harsh disconnected haircut," Loz says.

"Tommy's hair is a no guard on the back and sides. The top is basically like having 2 haircuts. The front fringe slightly blending into the front, and the fringe back is cut separately."

"I always use Reuzel Hair Tonic , and then use a bit of Tancho hair product, just to take down the fluff around the sides," Loz adds.

"I don't like using a lot of product. I always say a good haircut doesn't need a lot of product."

Michael Gray Peaky Blinders Haircut

After losing most of the Peaky Blinders money on the stock exchange, Michael was back in Birmingham only to be denounced by his family, but Loz says it was his American exploits that inspired the haircut for this series. 

"Since Michael has been living in America, his haircut is inspired by different trends in comparison with the other Peaky boys. I gave Michael a really sharp 1920s haircut."

"To style I again use Reuzel Hair Tonic as it has a slight tack to it. For the sleekness I use Reuzel Blue Pomade, and style the hair in its natural crown form."

Arthur Shelby Haircut

Arthur has undergone one of the most dramatic changes in season 5, with a shorter crop style to his hair in comparison with the usual longer length on top that we have become accustomed to. Loz says "Arthur's hair is again a no guard on the back and sides."

How Do You Style The Arthur Shelby Haircut?

"The haircut is styled with Reuzel Hair Tonic first, and then Reuzel Blue or Reuzel Red to finish."

"All the boys when I style the hair, I slightly wet the hair down. I then apply tonic to the hair, and put it into shape. I then do the makeup, by the time that is done the hair is dry, and I then apply the finishing touches. Little is more with these styles!"

Oswald Mosley Peaky Blinders Haircut

The star of season 5 has arguably been Sam Claflin, with his appearance as Oswald Mosely making him one of the fiercest adversaries to the Peaky clan to date.

But how Loz says that his hairstyle is achieved may surprise you, "Sam Claflin's hair in the series is actually a top piece that I put on him to give his hair height."

"I then blend it into his own hair by giving him a very sharp peak 1920s haircut."

"I again use Reuzel Tonic and then a little Reuzel Blue Pomade to finish."
