In this video we used Suavecito Original Pomade. You ideally want a "water based pomade" for the Tom Hardy look. If Tom Hardy had any product in his hair, they would have used a water based pomade or gel to get the look, but they may have also just sprayed the hair wet in between scenes.
So products used in my hair were a texture dust and Suavecito Original Pomade. You ideally want to use a pomade for wet, heavy look. For this style use something with a lighter hold and not ultra strong though. Just so you have some movement in the hair
I have straight hair and Tom Hardy also has straight hair. But ultimately a zero fade on back & sides with some length left on top will work with any hair type. Also adding texture to it, like we did in this video, means it didn't have to look ultra straight as it's cut to look dishevelled and messier. Would recommend showing your barber what you want and see if they have some suggestions for adapting it for you!
Sorry comedy gold but Michaels right, by your definition you are basically saying its impossible to do a shit job on someones hair if they are asking for a short back and sides, if they fuck your hairline up and don't fade it very well (which ive had from £5 barbers) then thats a bad haircut my bro.
This haircut works really well on Tom Hardy but not most people. In this case it's way too short on the sides for this guy. The best thing would have been to leave the length on the sides as is and tighter the fade a bit and blend the sides to the top a bit. I know that wouldn't be the Hardy haircut but it would look much better and hide that giant mole on his side.
You're always best to show a picture!! But this is a skin fade on back & sides leaving the hair heavy & textured on top. Doesn't really have an exact name for it, e.g. pompadour or side parting. But show a picture if in doubt 👌
Hey sir! To replicate the fade ask your barber for a high skin fade. Google "high skin fade" and you'll get a lot of pictures of a similar looking fade on back & sides if you want to show your barber!! Don't be afraid to show a clip from the video to your barber if you're not certain - they won't mind! 👌
Appreciate the feedback - we go into every haircut giving the barber complete freedom. We're open to getting every single cut exactly how it is or styled how it is, but sometimes our hair may suit a different style or in this case the barber (Paul) felt the finished style was too brash for every day and wanted to show another side to it. The wet style you see sprayed is pretty much exactly what Tom Hardy has in Taboo, but not many gents are going to walk about with their hair wet all day - or have someone spray their hair every 5 mins which an actor has the luxury of. A wet look gel will give a similar finish though. We just showed another side for switching it up as we want all of our videos to give honest, real looks at haircuts. Hope that explains it better!
Tom Hardy's Taboo cut finally makes me happy to have fine hair. The cut in this video is top, but hardy's cut had much more of a flat look which made it look a lot more edgy. Also, I think you're new cut looks much better on you than the slick back. Hope you enjoy rocking it.
Thank you - appreciate it!! Yeah I'm liking it. A much quicker and easier style aswell. So enjoying that haha. Had the slicked back side parting for a while now, so nice to have a change. Yeah it's a nice style for fine hair! As you can tell my hair is a lot thicker. Agreed - I think the wet look you see towards the end is more the actual Taboo cut and the end more of a modern current version on it!
I think the one done here looks a lot cleaner than the Taboo one. As he already mentions in the beginning of the video, the one in the show is a lot messier and looks like done by scissors and razor, not a clipper. Which with the era portrayed looks very good!
Yeah we wanted to keep it more modern for this video as doubt gents will want as extreme a cut as he does in the show!! There was a bit where we went through that on the day but being honest was a bit boring & want to keep you entertained! haha - so it didn't make the cut! (no pun intended)
