Why We Love It:

London born actor Callum Turner is hiding a big secret: he’d actually have a full head of shiny, bouncy curls if his barnet wasn’t cut into this 60s-inspired short back and sides.

But the London born actor is clearly fond of a statement chop – he confessed that from ages 6-15, he had a shaved head because his hero, Chelsea captain Dennis Wise, also had one.

So as much as MFH loves a good curl, there’s no doubt that it takes lot of work to keep the frizz away and the fluff at bay.

Time that Callum probably doesn’t have, as he’s busy being an actor-about-town (check him out in Masters of the Sky on Apple TV+ as well as sporting blonde hair on the big screen in The Boys in the Boat) and dating Dua Lipa.

Not a lot of time left to spend applying Frizz Ease, right Callum?

Meaning his no fuss, textured crop is the perfect solution.



What To Ask Your Barber:

  • If you have naturally curly hair like Callum Turner but want this short back and sides cut with lots of texture you’ll need a barber skilled with curly hair. 
  • The barber will need to skilfully trim and add texture to the hair to ensure it sits well and is easy to style.
  • The hair at the sides and back will be subtly tapered to ensure it blends naturally with the texture on top. 

Get The Look

  • Callum’s hair is healthy and super shiny.
  • To get that shine, don’t wash your hair too often – just 2-3 times a week maximum if you can.
  • When you do wash your hair, gently pat the hair dry with a towel. Don’t rub your barnet or it’ll encourage frizz. 
  • Even better, wrap it in a microfibre towel or hair wrap and get it as dry as possible that way.
  • Then spritz on a texture spray to give the hair bit of oomph and grit. 
  • Then either let it dry naturally, using a little  pomade to give the hair a bit of tousled look.
  • To enhance shine and reduce frizz, you can use a small amount of shine spray or oil.
  • Deep condition your hair once a week – ideally overnight.
