All Hairstyles

Why We Love It:

Not only is he killing it on Netflix, but Richard Gadd’s haircut with its tousled, asymmetrical fringe is rewriting the rule book on cool.

The texture on top gives his hair an extra kick – with fine hair like his, you need those skilfully cut layers to stop your hair from looking too flat.

That subtle undercut is the unexpected twist that adds serious edginess to his look.

It’s not a haircut that’ll appeal to everyone, but Richard owns it.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Richard’s hair is heavily textured all over, which would be achieved using a point-cutting technique.
  • The fringe has been left a little longer, and has also been heavily textured to give it that asymmetric, piecey look.
  • The undercut is subtle and goes slightly under the hair at the top of each ear.

Get The Look

  • If you have fine hair like Richard’s, you might want to use a volumising mousse or root-lifting spray on damp hair at the roots for added lift and volume.
  •  Then use matte paste or clay for texture and hold without adding shine.
  •  Work a small amount of product between your palms to warm it up before applying it evenly throughout your hair.
  • Use your fingers to tousle and shape your hair as you blow-dry it.
  • You can use a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer to enhance your natural texture and volume.
  • Focus on lifting the roots and tousling the mid-lengths and ends for that tousled finish.
  • When your hair is dry, use your fingers to further tousle and shape individual sections for a more undone look.
  • You can also use a bit more product as needed to define specific areas or add extra texture.
