Famous Haircuts Of Tucker Carlson
Tucker Carlson had two major haircuts that he sported during his career.
Messy Bob Haircut
Tucker Carlson wore the messy bob haircut when he was much younger and before he worked as a TV talk show host.
As there was no hair product used and he kept his hair naturally wavy, the no-hassle haircut has many fans even today.
His hair was thick (as is today) and the side part was messily created without the use of a comb. Due to this, his hair fell on the other side and gave his hair a fluffy appearance as a result.
The hair was cut straight and it looked cool on the young Tucker Carlson. We are sure that if he tried this hairstyle today, people will be impressed.
Once Tucker Carlson became a talk show host, he chopped off his locks and opted for a business haircut. At first, his hair was medium-length and you could see some hockey hair going on at the back of his head.
But soon enough, he had a short business haircut where his hair was a little shorter in comparison and the hockey hair didn’t show itself much. He still wears this haircut.
He has a side part business haircut and this hair is swept to his right side. This puts all his hair neatly in place and as he has wavy hair, the hair looks voluminous.
Steps In Getting A Short Business Haircut
If you have naturally wavy hair, you can get a haircut that resembles Tucker Carlson’s haircut. Here is how you can cut your hair at home.
Step 1: Part your hair
Prep your hair by washing it and then cut it while it is damp for easier cuts. You then want to part your hair sideways, the way you are going to wear it most often. Now check the length that you want before you start cutting your hair.
Step 2: Start with the side hair
You want to start cutting the hair that is found on the left and right sides of your head. First, you must comb it so that you can see the length.
You can use clippers or scissors to trim and cut the hair that is found on the sides. You want to cut a bit at a time so that you don’t cut too much hair at once.
Step 3: Move to the lengthy portion
Now, remember the hair that you styled to the side? Time to cut that. As this will be the longest hair length compared to the other areas, start trimming it bit by bit until the hair is of the desired length.
Remember that your hair will appear a bit shorter when it gets dry so cut accordingly.
Step 4: Cut the back
You want to have another mirror so you can see the back of your head clearly. You can use scissors and use your other hand to hold the hair in place before cutting.
You want to have a clean cut. If you want a hockey hairstyle like Tucker’s then you can layer cut it bit by bit using your scissors.
Tucker Carlson is a man you cannot ignore whether you agree with his views or not. Just like his views (which are pretty impossible to change), his hair has been pretty consistent throughout the years.
Even though he didn’t experiment with his hair much, he did try out a few haircuts and eventually settled on the short business haircut as he is a talk show host.
He has joked that he will go ‘full rasta’ if they allowed, but that is highly unlikely. Do you think Tucker looks better with his hair short or do you like his hair when it was comparatively longer in the early days of his career in TV?
