The Caesar cut
is a men's hairstyle
with a short, horizontally straight cut fringe. The hair is layered to around 2-5 cm (1-2 inches) all over. It is named after Julius Caesar
, whose images frequently depict him wearing his hair in such a manner.
It is also called a Clooney cut, because it was worn by actor George Clooney on the television series ER.
A short version became popular following the inclusion of the style in various science fiction television shows such as the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. This variation of the style is cut to a British grade 4-5 (all over) and matte waxed to create a textured, rugged finish.
