The Ivy League haircut is a classic that has been for a long time. It was one of the most popular styles in the 1940’s and 1950’s. It is very popular again today and sometimes you will see a messier look on top with more of a flip in the front. The true definition of this cut is the hair combed forward and to the side without a part. The front is combed slightly up and to the side without a hair out of place. A natural hairline or low taper accentuates the shape of the haircut. A firm gel or heavy cream works best to keep the hair styled neatly all day.
