A guide on the classic businessman haircut with side part

The classic businessman style is a taper haircut with a side part hairstyle on the top as the sides and back of the head are tapered with either shears, a hair clipper or both. The actual taper haircut (on the sides/back) can also be known as a businessman cut, a regular haircut, a classic haircut, a convertible haircut, a gentleman haircut or a fade haircut (when done with a hair clipper and the hairline buzzed to skin). Depending on how long the hair is to be trimmed on the sides and back and how long it will be at the hairline, the taper can also be labeled as to skin, short, medium, long or extra long.

The hair on the top of the head for this classic look is left at an even length anywhere from 1 inch to 4 inches, it’s really up to the preference of the male choosing this look. The hair is parted to the side perpendicular to the parted line with no fringe or a minimal fringe, using a good men’s comb (this one is essential for side parting) or by using the fingers. The taper cut together with the side part style is what is known as a businessman hairstyle or businessman look.

The businessman look goes great with men who enjoy looking classic, formal and well-groomed. Such a hair style is great for office settings and the nature of the haircut allows for the hair to be styled in other ways too, so the tapered businessman hairstyle is a winner in just about all situations. Lastly, the hair products needed for this classic men’s style are minimal and men with the hair types straight, wavy and curly coiled can get this style without a problem.

You will need a solid men’s comb, a good pomade, hair gel or hair mousse and a good high-quality hair clipper. All these products will be of use for any other hair styles and cuts you have in mind so even if you’re not planing yet for a businessman look, I still recommend you to get the hair products needed for this particular look. Remember that the taper haircut for the businessman look is also known as a convertible haircut which means that you can change the styling of the hair from a side part to anything else such as a brush up, a pompadour, a slick back, a quiff and other cool men’s styles.
