A quick google search into the origins of the Undercut will suggest that this style in its earliest form, was worn by the 'lower class' of the 1920's era. The suggestion is that those with very little money could not afford a barber with the skills to blend in the sides of the haircut... And while this may (or may not) have been true at the time, the reality of the modern day Undercut is very different.
The Undercut has enjoyed a steady resurgence in recent years, and its revival can largely be attributed to the hit TV series 'Peaky Blinders'. But the heavy disconnect worn by Tommy Shelby and his henchmen is certainly not for everybody. As a result we've seen an abundance of modern and more-wearable variations of the Undercut develop.
James Reichwein of Cut Throat Amsterdam is no stranger to the Undercut in its various forms. In this 'How To' Video James demonstrates the art of cutting a modern look -Loose Textured Undercut which he styles with Easy Hold.
Ditching the heavy-handed clipper approach of the traditional Undercut, James predominantly uses his technical scissor sills to remove weight through the back and sides of the hair, and also to provide shape, texture and direction to the top section.
