Brad Pitt a renowned Hollywood actor & producer was born in 1963 in Shawnee Oklahoma, Pitt grew up in Springfield, Missouri & also attended college and studied journalism there. Pitt later dropped out of college to make the move to L.A. He is now famous for his roles in ''Fight Club'', ''Oceans 11'', ''Mr. & Mrs. Smith'' & many more successful movies. Pitt started off playing insignificant roles in movies such as ''21 Jump Street'', ''Cutting Class'' & ''Happy Together''. He got his big break when he landed the lead role as Tristan Ludlow the son of  William Ludlow (Anthony Hopkins)  in ''Legends of The Fall''. Shortly after his big break he worked with the famous Morgan Freeman in ''Seven''- Brad successfully built up his Hollywood reputation. Brad Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston for five years, however in 2005 they split up. Brad was rumored to have fell for his on screen wife Angelina Jolie in ''Mr & Mrs Smith'' in 2004. Soon Pitt & Jolie we're exclusive, they had children together & got married in 2014. Unfortunately Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016 and shocked the world. The reason for the divorce is yet to be revealed.

Brad Pitts timeline of haircuts is certainly questionable from his long bleached locks to his fringed bangs. However Pitt made a statement with his striking disconnected undercut for the movie ''Fury'', it includes very fine & short sides with a longer amount of hair on top slicked back. In 2014 Pitt starred in ''Fury'' as a grizzled tank commander.  They are outnumbered and face an overwhelming journey to take on their enemies in Nazi Germany. He receives a soldier to substitute his deceased gunner. Pitt who plays ''Sergeant Don Collier'' tries to toughen up the weak soldier. Pitt's character is a tough, no nonsense tank commander - he wants to complete his mission no matter what. 

Pitt's undercut  gives off a strong, masculine look & this cut is often today seen on men sporting these fine, short sides with a grizzly overgrown beard. This classic barber cut is so versatile which is why it is now back in style - there are  many versions of this hairstyle. You can wear this look completely slicked back or disheveled it depends on how you wish to wear it.

  2. Use 2-3 sprays of The Grafton Barber Volumed thickening & texture spray - spray directly on the scalp & use a comb to distribute the product evenly. Using a vent brush & your hairdryer on medium heat start from the crown and blow dry the hair in backward motions & repeat this step in order to get as much root lift as possible. Continue the same motion until hair is dry & very volumised.
  3. Using a small amount of The Grafton Barber Polished Gloss Wax work through the hair with your fingers to distribute the product evenly & to also give you that layered, sleek, disheveled, look. 
  4. Finally to lock that style into place use The Grafton Barber Maxed Hairspray spray 6-7 inches from the hair . Style it, Fix it, Leave it.

Rugby Players Ireland: 

The Grafton Barber had the pleasure of welcoming some of the Leinster Irish Rugby Team into our Donnybrook branch. The team came along for some fun activities in our barbershop as the lads had taken a massive interest in barbering recently. They had a great laugh cutting & styling each others hair - with the close supervision of our barbers!! However they did learn a lot from the experience. By the end of the workshop the Rugby Players we're well capable of holding a scissors correctly & cutting, blow drying and styling the hair & they also learned how to use a cut throat razor. 

We judged the best & worst haircuts & had great entertainment from the players along the way - although we have to admit it wasn't as simple as we expected to pick the best haircut because they all had done a pretty decent job! They left our Donnybrook branch as groomed gentlemen with even more skill than they came in with. It was our pleasure lads - we can't wait to see yous all again!
