Praise be for autumn and its bounty of televisual delights – specifically, the return of Brum-based gangster epic Peaky Blinders. Heading up this cast of charismatic mobsters is Tommy Shelby, played by Irishman with mad accent skillz Cillian Murphy. Not only does this guy wear a cap with razor blazes sewn into its peak (don’t ask), but also he sports a razor-sharp (albeit divisive) haircut, which is why he claims our Haircut Of The Week title.
Hairstyle of the week #5

Check out the shave on this guy. We’re talking about the kind of directional cut one might expect to see atop the bonce of a well-heeled Hackney resident, not a gang lord who bosses the streets of 1919 Birmingham. With a to-the-bone grade one on the sides and crop on the top, the blunt step between the shaved and longer section of hair reminds us a bit of Robert Pattinson’s latest do, too. So if you’re in the market for a change of style, you could do worse than going for this fresh, edgy look. Just don’t expect everyone to like it.
Peaky Blinders Series 2 is out now on DVD & Blu-ray
