Men’s Versatile, Low-Maintenance Cut


Men’s Versatile, Low-Maintenance Cut

If your client needs some versatility, this is the cut they’re looking for. The length allows it to be worn wavy or straight, making it the ultimate style for every low-maintenance guy. Plus, it’s easy for him to style on his own—and we all know that is something every guy wants. Here’s how the Esquire Barbers created the cut.
