Is there a name for this haircut?


I thought I had seen everything that could be done with a human head of hair. But I was wrong. I had never envisioned this.

Is there even a name for this?

It's a Friar Tuck. I guess he was lying on his back instead of sitting up in the chair.

Are you sure it's a haircut? He might be a sailor looking out the porthole of some new Navy invisible stealth ship, perhaps?

It's like his neckbeard migrated north for the summer. I propose the term "headbeard."

"Scalp-beard" would be more accurate, but it just doesn't sound as good as yours. I think it's those three consonants in a row.

Wow. And here I'd thought I'd seen every possible variation on the self-degrading haircut.

I did see something new and different (at least to sheltered old me) the other day. It was a 30-ish white guy with a standard dark brown / black stand-up Mohawk about 3" tall on an otherwise shaved head. So far so ordinary.

Except it was set at about a 30 degree angle to his fore-aft axis. So it started over his left eye and ran diagonally across the top of his head and ended down behind his right ear. Very rakish, like a beret on waay too lopsided. Very affected but still kinda cool at the same time.

Douche Beard does it for me. Bravo.



Showed the OP's pic to my wife. "Foolproof birth control" was her verdict.

"Unfortunate" would be my guess.

I mentally dubbed it "The Sooty Porthole" before I read the rest of the thread.

I seem to remember that someone from the band Cracker getting a similar haircut on some video I watched in the late 90s or early 2000s. It was at that time called "the ring of hair."
