The classic tapered haircut is usually cut with a #2 clipper guard and is about 2 inches long on the top. The tight classic tapered haircut is called a pompadour. The cut is dramatic, usually clipper cut as close as possible and faded high on the sides and back. The top of this haircut is usually around 5 inches long. The low tight taper haircut is reminiscent of a depression-era haircut. This cut is very short on the sides and back and quite a bit longer on the top.
