With the resurgence of barbering, the line up is more popular than ever. Line up hair is just what it sounds like. Instead of a natural hairline, the forehead, temples, and back are shaved into straight lines and sharp angles. Also called tape ups or and shape ups, the defined lines are ultra clean cut. Barbers will use either their clippers for the closest shave possible, a straight razor.
Check out these pics for a few fresh ways to rock a #lineup.
The most frequently seen line up is at the hairline and temples (like Drake’s signature look). This cool cut takes it to the next level by transitioning into skin fade for a juxtaposition of hard lines and a gradual taper.
A line up can is a cool addition to any haircut. Combined with a combover and hard part, this is an ultra defined and crisp style. The drawback? If you have fast growing hair, keeping this cut looking fresh and stubble free will require frequent maintenance, for both the part and shape up.
Asking yourself if the line up can be worn with a beard? Of course. The geometric cut continues into the short beard for a precision finish. To extend the life span of this fresh style, use your electric razor to carefully eliminate new growth while maintaining the lines your barber cut.
