Fashion is very changeable. This applies to everything: lifestyle, home, family and, of course, appearance. Appearance is the apotheosis of the fashion industry, there are no frames and boundaries. There is also no limit to imagination in men's hairstyles. Men create crazy hairstyles and dye their hair unrealistic colors. But we will focus on a model haircut for a pot, which has historical roots, and it is quite decent, not pretending to be particularly extravagant.


The haircut appeared in the 17th century, but then it was of a household nature. In Russia, men wore long and thick beards and long hair. However, this was impractical, it was necessary to somehow solve the problem. So the idea came to put on the most ordinary pot on your head and cut off everything that stuck out below the edge of the pot itself. The result was a relatively straight and neat hairstyle. Later, the haircut became very popular, which it remains to this day.

Haircut types

To modern times, a haircut under a pot has undergone many changes. And, of course, no one has put a pot on their heads for a long time. Let's take a look at some of the variations of this hairstyle.

  • Smooth transition. The principle of this haircut is the visual absence of transitions. All transitions from one length to another are so smooth that they are difficult to see. Various methods of styling such a haircut are possible, and the elongated bangs can be laid both forward and backward, and to the side. Perfect for young people with soft features and good looks. The master tries to smooth out the transitions between the lengths as much as possible, creating perfect spherical shapes. This type of haircut is mainly performed on thin, without volume and straight hair - due to the graduation of the strands, the volume increases, which creates an image with a touch of romance.
  • Clear transition... The main part is cut clearly and evenly - at the same length - around the circumference of the head. The neck is shaved bald or very short hair is left. The silhouette is symmetrical. Men, whom nature has awarded with thick, coarse and straight hair, will look most advantageous with a haircut under a pot with a clear transition of lengths. The main condition is that the hair should be straight and have a natural volume. A haircut is very suitable for them, as it emphasizes not only the external features of the face, but also character traits.

Young people with a stubborn, strong-willed character who strive to stand out and look special can decide to do such a hairstyle.

  • Double transition. It is carried out in 3 stages. The main part is clipped to the length of the lower part of the ear, the second part (crown) - to the beginning of the ear. Then the neck area is shaved. The hairstyle turns out to be voluminous, but at the same time it looks airy. For men with thin and thin hair, such a haircut is a real find, as it gives more volume. It gives a touch of infantilism and youth, mystery and brutality.
  • Multilayer... This haircut is suitable for men with curly hair. It looks casual, but it always attracts attention. A haircut for medium and long hair can be multi-layered if a man has very curly curly curls. The multi-layer technique of cutting strands allows you to balance the volume of lush hair.

This allows you to achieve a soft, rounded hairstyle.

  • Asymmetry. The difference between this haircut is in oblique lines and uneven hair length. They are usually shorter at the back of the head, and longer towards the face. The bangs are pointed, falling down to the forehead.It is necessary to ensure that the hair is smooth, without curls, otherwise the hairstyle looks untidy. If there are any features of the shape of the head (square, elongated oval, diamond-shaped or heart-shaped), this option will hide all the shortcomings.


A haircut under a pot attracts with its simplicity and originality. However, it has its pros and cons.
