What Is A Two Block Haircut?
“What is a two block haircut?” is a question that any barber can answer even in the middle of the night. Now, it’s our turn. In fact, it’s a haircut that features very short, thin or shaved sides and lower back of the hair accompanied by a longer top.
After reading this, you will probably ask yourself “and how does it differ from the undercut?”. The truth is, there’s a slight but significant difference that can put an end to the two block haircut vs undercut confusion. Unlike undercut variations where contrasts and length transitions may vary, the two block cut always features a visible, distinctive contrast between the sides and top.
Such a structure is an updated version of a disconnected undercut, and it has split into its own variety of styling and wearing options. Also, since it often features bangs that are of the same length with the top, the cut can be described as a combination of a bowl and an undercut.
How to ask for a two block haircut?
