Grand master footballer Leo Messi certainly doesn’t need any introduction but clearly needs to decide on a long term hair style.

Messi Wet/Shine Look

Short Tapered HairUndercut and Volumized Side-CombIf you decide your hair type suits more of a wet/shinier finish you have to establish to what extent you’re going to go to before picking the correct product. Here on the left, we can see that this Messi look is wetter than that on the right. To get this added shine and wet look texture we recommend using the Hairbond Gripper Professional Hair Pomade and as for the style on the right, look no further than the Hairbond Shaper Professional Hair Toffee. These two product offer the best ingredients and create a premium wet/shine textured finish.

Tom Holland hair – Styling medium lengths with Hairbond


To get Tom Holland hair you need to get a Tom Holland hair cut. Maybe you’re looking for inspiration for a medium length hair cut? Then actor Tom Holland is your man, and knows how to rock a medium length scissor cut haircut.

With so many short and long haircuts out there at the minute, it can be difficult for the men with medium length hairstyles to find some inspiration, but as we said, Tom Holland is the man for that.

Here’s how to achieve your very own Tom Holland inspired hair style. Tom Holland Hair - Styling with Hairbond


The Length of the Haircut

The length of Tom’s hair in Infinity War is around five to six inches, but more recently he has had it cut shorter for  Spider-Man Far From Home. Tom always goes for a traditional scissor cut, nicely tailored to him and his hair. The back and sides are taken short and tapered, but there’s never “scalp exposure”, so you won’t see Tom Holland with any harsh fades on the back and sides. After all, he’s not a Peaky Blinder.



How To Ask Your Barber For The Tom Holland Haircut

Firstly grow your hair out slightly longer than you think then you can get your barber to add in the shape.

Your barber will be able to tailor this style to you taking into account two things, your head shape as well as hair type so it should be completely unique and personable to you in the end.

Show your barber the picture for inspiration and leave it with the expert to give you the best version of what you’re asking for.

If there’s any confusion instruct them to scissor cut all over, and blend only slightly shorter into the sides (no undercuts)

Use your finger length as a guide, tidy and soft approach to ears and neck are a must, leaving it natural. You don’t want any harsh line ups here. For finer or curlier hair then let your hair use it’s natural texture. If you have thicker hair ask your barber to add texture throughout to help you style it.



Styling The Haircut

Styling the Tom Holland haircut will depend on what you like from a product, and your hair type –

For thicker hair –

You can really get away with any product you like. For a matte, natural finish use a matte wax or clay like the Hairbond Moulder, Hairbond Mattifier or Hairbond Distorter

But to add an element of shine to the hair use a product that adds a little sheen, like Tom does, and try a paste or cream like the Hairbond Shaper, Hairbond Gripper or Hairbond Texturiser.

Tommy Shelby Haircut – Styling with Hairbond


After five seasons of Peaky Blinders, we wanted to look at the Peaky Blinders characters hairstyles, including the Tommy Shelby Haircut, which have been taking over our screens recently and then explain how you can recreate the same styles at home, whilst using Hairbond’s British, elite hair styling products.

Since this hugely successful series launched, men all around the globe have been rushing to their barbers for a peaky inspired hair cut. So lets have a look at the season five hair cuts and how to style them..

Peaky Blinders Haircuts – Season 5

What has changed with the Peaky Blinders Season 5 haircuts?

You might have noticed that the hair styles and cuts in each series are different and we think there’s a reason for that. As the Shelby’s get richer and depending on how their characters grow, their hair styles and hair cuts are tweaked accordingly to reflect this.

Tommy Shelby Haircut

The leader of the Peaky Blinders has a harsh haircut matching his behaviour.

So what is the Tommy Shelby haircut? Well, it’s not an undercut and there is no fade. It is a harsh disconnected haircut, Tommy’s hair is a no guard round the back and sides and the top is made up of two haircuts. The front fringe slightly blending into the front, and the fringe back is cut separately.

How To Style The Tommy Shelby Haircut

For the Tommy Shelby finish we recommend the Hairbond Moulder Professional Hair Shaper. This product will give you the sensation of applying a soft wax but without the greasy feel or look. With a 4/5 hold strength you get lots of control whilst maintaining a true natural matte finish, almost like there’s no product in there at all.

Michael Gray Haircut

After losing a huge amount of the Peaky Blinders money on the stock exchange, Michael went back to Birmingham only to be denounced by his family, but after spending some time in the states picked up a bit of American style while he was there, this is reflected in his sharp 1920’s, pomade styled haircut.

As you can see Michael has a pronounced parting down the left hand side of his head. Whilst the hair is slightly damp, or towel dry, we recommend applying a small amount of the Hairbond Gripper Professional Hair Pomade for the right amount of shine and hold for this look. With a fruity fragrance and water soluble formula you will find this easy and pleasant to both apply and wash out.

Arthur Shelby Haircut

Arthur now has a shorter crop style to his hair in comparison with the usual longer length on top that we have seen in previous series. Again it’s been cut short around the sides without a guard on the clipper.

How Do You Style The Arthur Shelby Haircut?

Hairbond Distorter Professional Hair Clay 50ml/1.7oz

As you can now see Arthur has lost a lot of length on top and is wearing it forwards and down, but you can make out textured layers looking closely at this cut. We recommend using the Hairbond Distorter Professional Hair Clay as it is an elite, matte styling product that creates and enhances texture for the cut but with a relaxed supple/ natural finish.

Oswald Mosley Haircut

The star of season 5 has arguably been Sam Claflin, with his appearance as Oswald Mosely making him one of the fiercest adversaries to the Peaky clan to date.

Allegedly Sam Claflin’s hair in the series is actually a top piece that was put on him to give his hair height.

It was then blended into his own hair leaving him with a very sharp peak 1920s haircut.

Again this natural style is a job for the Hairbond Moulder Professional Hair Shaper. Whilst this product is invaluable for thickening the hair’s appearance you will not need an added top piece to style like Owsald Mosley. The Moulder will give it lift and volume whilst keeping to that natural and mature style.
