The Tommy Shelby Haircut – Styling with Hairbond

Peaky blinders hairbond tommy shelby haircut hair styling black and white barber 


After five seasons of Peaky Blinders, we wanted to look at again at the Peaky Blinders characters hairstyles, including the new Tommy Shelby Haircut, which has been taking over our screens recently and then explain how you can recreate the same styles at home, whilst using Hairbond’s British, elite hair styling products.

Since this hugely successful series launched, men all around the globe have been rushing to their barbers for at least a Tommy Shelby hair cut.

So let’s first have a look at the famous Tommy Shelby character, with actor Cillian Murphy himself, then we can have a look at all the main characters, season five hair cuts and how to style them.

What has changed with the Peaky Blinders Season 5 haircuts?

You might have noticed that the hair styles and cuts in each series are different and we can see there’s a reason for that. As the Shelby’s get richer and depending on how their characters psychologically grow, their hair styles and hair cuts are tweaked accordingly to reflect it.

Thomas Shelby Haircut

The leader of the Peaky Blinders has a harsh haircut matching his well known edgy behaviour.

So what is the Tommy Shelby haircut? Well, it’s not an undercut and there is no fade.

It is a harsh disconnected haircut, Tommy’s hair is a no guard around the back and sides and the top is made up of two haircuts.

The front fringe slightly blending into the front, and the fringe back is cut separately.


How To Style The Thomas Shelby Haircut

For the Tommy Shelby finish, we recommend the Hairbond Moulder Professional Hair Shaper. This product will give you the sensation of applying a soft wax but without the greasy feel or look. With a 4/5 hold strength, you get lots of control whilst maintaining a true natural matte finish, almost like there’s no product in there at all.



Michael Gray Haircut

After losing a huge amount of the Peaky Blinders money on the stock exchange, Michael went back to Birmingham only to be denounced by his family, but after spending some time in the states picked up a bit of American style while he was there, this is reflected in his sharp 1920’s, pomade styled haircut.


How Do You Style The Michael Gray Haircut?

As you can see Michael has a pronounced parting down the left hand side of his head. Whilst the hair is slightly damp, or towel dry, we recommend applying a small amount of the Hairbond Gripper Professional Hair Pomade for the right amount of shine and hold for this look. With a fruity fragrance and water-soluble formula you will find this easy and pleasant to both apply and wash out.




Arthur Shelby Haircut

Arthur now has a shorter crop style to his hair in comparison with the usual longer length on top that we have seen in the previous series. Again it’s been cut short around the sides without a guard on the clipper.


How Do You Style The Arthur Shelby Haircut?

As you can now see Arthur Shelby has lost a lot of length on top and is wearing it forwards and down, but you can make out the textured layers looking real close at this cut. We recommend using the Hairbond Distorter Professional Hair Clay as it is an elite, matte styling product that creates and enhances texture for the cut but with a relaxed supple/ natural finish.




Oswald Mosley Haircut

The star of season 5 has arguably been Sam Claflin, with his appearance as Oswald Mosely making him one of the fiercest adversaries to the Peaky clan to date.

Allegedly Sam Claflin’s hair in the series is actually a top piece that was put on him to give his hair height.

It was then blended into his own hair leaving him with a very sharp peak 1920s haircut.


How Do You Style The Oswald Mosley Haircut?

Again this natural style is a job for the Hairbond Moulder Professional Hair Shaper. Whilst this product is invaluable for thickening the hair’s appearance you will not need an added top piece to style like Oswald Mosley. The Moulder will give it lift and volume whilst keeping to that natural and mature style.
