The Gentlemen’s Taper is one of the classic barber haircuts that has been popular for generations. This haircut is sometimes referred to as a regular haircut or the “Barbershop Regular”. It requires proficiency in the scissor over comb haircutting technique and the clipper over comb technique for tapering a natural hairline. There is a great example of this haircut worn by the actor John Slatterly on the popular TV show Mad Men.
