    Time Well Spent: Steve Sherman
    Widely renowned as one of the best Surf photographers in the world, Steve ‘Sherm’ Sherman is a photojournalist hailing from Cardiff, California. Funnily enough, Sherm doesn’t really shoot ‘surf’, but prefers to focus on the things no one else is looking at. Relying on intuition more than anything else, Sherm takes a relatively relaxed approach to his photography. He puts himself in situations no other photographers would dare to even think about to capture the moments that would usually go unnoticed. The result is raw, gritty but above all else, honest. Don’t get us wrong, Sherm is a workhorse. Attend any WSL event and you’ll be able to pick Sherm out from a mile away in his signature hat, making his way through the hungry pack to find his spot. After following the tour for since 1995, he’s picked up a few tricks along the way and won himself countless covers as a result.  What really separates Sherm from the rest is his ability to create relationships that h

  6. Loose Textured Undercut - How To Cut
    Loose Textured Undercut - How To Cut
    A quick google search into the origins of the Undercut will suggest that this style in its earliest form, was worn by the 'lower class' of the 1920's era.  The suggestion is that those with very little money could not afford a barber with the skills to blend in the sides of the haircut... And while this may (or may not) have been true at the time, the reality of the modern day Undercut is very different. The Undercut has enjoyed a steady resurgence in recent years, and its revival can largely be attributed to the hit TV series 'Peaky Blinders'.  But the heavy disconnect worn by Tommy Shelby and his henchmen is certainly not for everybody.  As a result we've seen an abundance of modern and more-wearable variations of the Undercut develop. James Reichwein of Cut Throat Amsterdam is no stranger to the Undercut in its various forms.  In this 'How To' Video James demonstrates the art of cutting a modern look -Loose Textured Undercut which he styles with Easy Hold.

    Low And Tight Side Part - How To Cut
    This style has evolved from the classic styles of the 1950’s where a short back and sides became a common request in the barbershop. The basis of this haircut is the low fade and the tight finish which highlights the top section of the hair. The top section is left slightly longer to allow for styling and providing that final shape to the look. The side part gives the hairstyle definition and a touch of good old fashioned class.

  8. Easy Slick Back - How To Cut
    Easy Slick Back - How To Cut
    The Pompadour, or Pomp for short, is a hairstyle that has proven to be timeless since its conception in the 1700’s. The Pomp’s styling principles have always remained the same, and it has become a popular men’s hairstyle in recent times. Barbers of today combine the Pomp’s original styling technique with short back and sides, to create what is now known as the Easy Slick Back. This look can be styled in various ways, but it is most commonly worn high, with hair slicked back from the fringe area to the back of the head. The Pomp element brings height and definition to this style, whilst the slick back gives it a refined and sleek finish. How To Cut An Easy Slick Back

  11. Modern Textured Quiff With Fade - How To Cut
    Modern Textured Quiff With Fade - How To Cut
    Generally regarded as a hybrid style, the quiff takes inspiration from more traditional 1950’s styles like the pompadour, the flat top and in some instances the mohawk. The quiff by simple definition is hair lifted upwards and backward from the forehead. As the style evolved over the years the length on the top of the head was counterbalanced with a short fade around the base of the head. In this particular example of the quiff features a short length of textured hair throughout the top section giving the hair a spiky finish. Easy to style and maintain, the Textured Quiff is a go to style for many none fuss groomers. How To Cut A Modern Textured Quiff with Fade
