10 Modern and Cool Versions of the Edgar Haircut

Styles that you haven't seen before.

The Edgar haircut rose in popularity initially among Latino Gen Z guys, but it has now crossed over. The cut gained its namesake after a popular baseball player cut his hair with this never-seen style. The Edgar is the latest variation of the classic Caesar and bowl cuts, meaning long on the top with taper fade sides. Thanks to its unique characteristics, the Edgar is the hairstyle of choice for many mainstream rappers and pop singers. There are different ways to rock this haircut, and we’re bringing you the most popular styles.
