Dan Levy: Tousled Textured Caesar Cut

Rated  4.0 4 Star

He’s the man who is almost as famous for his quiff as his acting, so Dan Levy’s new hairstyle – this tousled, textured Caesar cut – is quite the change.

Luckily, it looks far from Schitt. (Sorry, it had to be done, right?)

Why We Love It:

The Schitt’s Creek actor gave seriously good quiff for years, but MFH applauds Dan Levy’s new ‘do, because this textured Caesar cut – with just the right amount of tousle – actually makes the 40-year-old look more youthful.

And, is it just MFH, or does he look a little more carefree now he’s not having to spend so much time shaping and styling his quiff?

This classic Caesar cut does take a leaf out of George Clooney’s 90s hair playbook but the messy texture of Dan’s cut gives it a modern update. And less of a ‘lego hair’ vibe, right?

Dan’s hairstyle is the perfect look for anyone blessed with thick, straight(ish) hair who wants a short, fuss-free cut that still has a bit of versatility.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • If you’re keen on Dan Levy’s hair and want to get in on the Caesar cut action, chat to your Barber about the length you want first.
  • Caesar cuts are usually quite cropped and uniform in length all over. Dan’s hair looks to be about an inch or so.
  • Ask your barber to add texture to the hair on top. This can be done using techniques like point cutting or texturising shears to create a more natural, textured look.
  • Keep the sides and back short. A typical Caesar cut has a short and even length on the sides, often faded or tapered (Dan’s has a gentle taper)
  • The fringe of a Caesar cut is a defining feature – you can go quite blunt if you’re brave enough, but Dan’s choppy, piece-y fringe is a more flattering, softer look.
  • Dan’s cut has even more standout due to the strong colour – which looks like it has been dyed recently. If you’ve got dark hair and want to cover the greys, or just get a more statement look, chat to your hairdresser about what tones would work with your skin tone.
  • They may also be able to advise what home dye brands and colours would be good for you to try if you haven’t got the budget for regular colouring sessions at the salon.

Get The Look

  • Dan’s tousled, textured Caesar cut is all about using the right products for your hair type. And personal preference comes into it too.
  • Ideally use a matte or low-shine product – like clay, wax or light hold pomade.
  • If you have thick hair, you might want to go for the stronger hold options.
  • Start with a small amount of product – because it’s easy to add more later than try and get rid of excess if you’ve used too much.
  • Rub it between your palms to warm it up and make it more malleable.
  • Work it through from roots to ends of damp or dry hair on the top and front sections of your head.
  • Use your fingers to tousle it – you don’t want it to look naturally mussed, not too overly styled.
  • You can also blow dry it on a low setting and use the fingers to shape the hair and get the level of tousle you want.
