the salons mentioned aren't really cheap... haha

but it looks like a hairstyle that doesn't seem too hard to do...

1 on the sides and leave the top and back with like an inch of hair.

bring a picture...

I think its like close shave on the front and sides and the back and gradually increases to the top giving you a cone like impression. nice haircut i'll do if I was in school, don't think it'll be a good impression in my presentations to the boss at work though.

I use dto have this hair for the last 2 years...fucking great and easy to set and keep. However you need a skilled haistylist, I always go to the Japanese ones, best hairdressers ever.

i think you'd need to get it trimmed at least twice a month to maintain it. personally, i cant be bothered to do that.

dude this is easy as fuck to do. just take the photo to any barber and they'll get that for you.

You'll regret it if you let a barber try this on you. The odds that it won't look right are very high and the techniques that this style requires aren't done/known by barbers. That's all I'll say to that.

Some people look ok when it starts to grow but others will need to get it done fairly regularly (every 2 weeks). I had this style when I was in college but I can't keep it anymore since the finance industry isn't exactly receptive of interesting hair. To keep it looking decent, I had to cut it every 15-20 days.

It's an expensive style to maintain. Know that going in and deal with it. An affordable Japanese salon is probably the best route since the style is/was fairly common in Japan.

you should go to a chinatown barber

cause you are a little peasant who can't afford a 40 dollar haircut

I let grow mine for one month and half and it still great ! Well the look evolves with time, but still easy to set and maintain. I can`t afford to go barber every 2 weeks, and I would feel like a girl doing so (like going to manucure) !

Make sure you don't have a receding hairline and/or big forehead because this haircut will accentuate both.

he(nakata) has both and it still looks good on him, so dare i say that you make no sense whatsoever?

Used to have it last year.

Nakata isnt even the founder of it, my vietnamese barber used to call it tokyo style wich is either general...

As you can see mine is more Mullet styled wich I like more but in that pic its way to long, I used to let my neckhairs grown but than It lookd stupid after some time..

I get it for cheap here in berlin only 6€ (9$) and hes a real pro in that...

I dont think that will help you either..

Anyway this Haircut is out now in Japan you know them guys changing their hairs like everyday ;)

I saw some Japanese bboy have this during.. uhh freestyle session.. 8 (2004?)? I always thought it looked pretty cool and would mess with it sometimes when i shaved my head.

I always thought it was a fade that also started in the front as well as the back and the sides and culminated (?) to the crown.. Never knew it was called the "nakata cut" and didn't believe it was so difficult..

but hey, what do i know.

Yeah, I would say go to a chinatown barber in NY downtown chinatown-there is a good one, shit I forgot the name of the place it's on a corner pretty big spot has windows tons of chairs you pick your barber from a picture at the front desk. Charge around ten dollars do a damn good job or just go to a Japanese barber they might be familar with the cut.

whoever said the hair cut is easy is spot on. $30 for a freaking short cut like that which isnt even difficult is just so stupid.

And yes, this cut is high maintainence, it might look a little wierd if your headshape is different as well. And also u wont look the same if ur hairline isnt as high as nakata's. But you will definately get something close for alot cheaper. Here in Sydney you can get hair cuts for less than $15, but $30US seems a little fucked up (for a simple cut).

and yes, bring a photo, esp that one with different angles.
