The look is characterized by cutting the sides short and the top being left longer while it is swept back. It is the perfect way to add a touch of edginess to any look. Additionally, the sideburns offer a subtle hint of attitude to his overall look. And the longer length of the top helps to give a greater sense of depth and fuller look.
