Men’s Textured Cut


Men’s Textured Cut

It’s the classic men’s cut—but updated. Think shorter on the sides and in the back, with a little extra texture left on top. Think less restrained and just the right amount of mess. This textured men’s cut is meant to look natural and it works well with most face shapes—meaning it’s perfect for almost any guy in your chair. Here’s how the Esquire Groomers make it happen.
