Get the George Ford Haircut

Master barber Sara from Pall Mall Barber Bishopsgate explains how to get your like just like England Rugby star, George Ford.

Who is George Ford?


Manchester born George Ford is a professional Rugby player for the England national team and club outfit, Leicester Tigers. A hit with the ladies, George is a great role model for any young gent.

The Haircut

George’s hair is a classic gents look. Short back and sides with a neat sweep to one side on top. It’s a haircut that is neat, requires minimal maintenance and can be easily achieved.

What to ask your barber for

For the back and sides ask for a 0.5 fade. You don’t have to go this short, a grade 1 or 2 would do the job just fine. However, a shorter fade is recommended to get that sharp, tight look.

The top should be scissor-cut to a short length. Your barber must leave enough length on the fringe so the hair can be swept up and back to one side (any side to fit the direction of your natural hair growth pattern).

How often do I need to get it cut?

Visit your barber every 2-3 weeks to maintain this haircut. Anything over 4 weeks and the style will begin to lose its shape.

How to style at home

Apply a small amount of pliable clay to dry hair for a good hold and a matte finish. If you want a bit more shine, opt for the PMB texture enhancer.
