One of the oldest and most popular men’s cuts is the Caesar haircut. It was extremely popular in the 90s, and now it’s coming back, being blended with other trendy men’s styles.

Upgraded Caesar Haircuts

In case you aren’t that familiar with what exactly a Caesar is, it’s generally a cut with a square front, achieved with a short horizontally cut fringe.
