Best Prohibition Style Haircuts

If your barber is unsure of how to cut a prohibition-era men’s haircut, you’ll want to ask for a high fade on the sides and about two inches left on the top. Start with a number one clipper guard and make sure your hair is faded into the nape of your neck and sideburns. As for styling a prohibition hairstyle, guys will want to use a strong and shiny pomade or wax for a high-sheen finish. We recommend Layrite or Suavecito as the best pomades for men.
