The Caesar Cut is a hairstyle associated with ancient Rome and Julius Caesar (from whom the name of the hairstyle is derived). This hairstyle creates a short vertical fringe from styling the hair forward. The Caesar Cut hairstyle is an excellent styling choice for balding men who are a Norwood III or below, and Julius Caesar himself used this hairstyle to conceal his balding whenever he was in public.

Haircut for the Caesar Cut Hairstyle
The Caesar Cut hairstyle involves having your scalp trimmed to an even length (0.5-1 inches); that means that the sides/back are at the same length as the top, thus the even hair length all around the head. Alternatively, the sides and back are tapered either with scissors or with a hair clipper to a #4.

How to style the Caesar Cut hairstyle
Style the hair on the top of your head in a forward direction, starting from the crown area and ending at the forehead’s hairline as you leave a short vertical fringe laying on the forehead. Use a wide-tooth comb (if hair is wavy curly) or a conventional comb (if hair is straight) to style the hair forward, and then use your fingers to further style the short fringe.
There’s no need to use a hair dryer and good hairstyling products for the Caesar Cut include hair gel, pomade and mousse.
