And what an impression he makes. So, we, at NO GUNK , have put together a style guide of two of the best Tom Holland haircuts for you to recreate. You won’t even be able to tell the difference between you.
To recreate Tom Holland’s Peter Parker haircut, head to your barber and ask for a layered cut with side parting. You want to cut and leave a generous amount of length in the top so that the hair reaches the bridge of your nose when swept forward, somewhere between 6 to 8 inches. Then cut some layers into the top and upper sides – this will create a flowing effect when the hair is pushed back. For the back and lower sides, you want to feather the hair and taper it from around 1 ½ to 2 inches with scissors. Then go back over the hair and blend together so everything looks neat.
Tip: When you run your fingers through your hair you should see the different layers more prominently on the sides.
