To be straight, Levi Ackerman’s haircut is called a ‘curtain undercut with long bangs’.

Basically, it is a cut where the hair at the top is long and left looking straight/simple while lower parts are shaved off. The hair is even and done in the same length all over, with not a lot of volume.

In some parts of the world, this cut is also known and called a ”Levi” haircut. This character has given it so much popularity that everyone wants it and keeps on booking it at salons.

How To Get Levi Ackerman Haircut?

This hairstyle was super popular in 1990 and throughout 2000. The Backstreet boys also used to wear their hair in a similar way (Nick Carter in particular).

You can also get this hairstyle by giving it time to grow out and by focusing on its length and maintenance. Your hair should be up to your ear-length all over, with long and wispy bangs for proper cutting, shaving, and styling.

Once your hair is at a certain length it is time to get an undercut detail and maintain the length.

Who Can Go For this Levi Undercut Hairstyle?

Unfortunately, not everyone can pull off this hairstyle. This is because the cut itself is meant to be worn straight. If your natural hair texture is wavy or curly, you might not be able to pull it off as easily.

However, any hair color will go just as well! You might enjoy it a tad bit more if your hair is naturally black or dark brown, just like Levi’s is. In the end, it is up to you to find a good barber who knows how to do similar looks based on pictures of fictional characters.

Step By Step Tutorial On How To Get The Levi Ackerman Haircut

Step 1: Make sure that your hair is already cut at a barbershop in this curtain buzzcut way. Once it is, wash it and dry completely. It is always easier to work with clean blow-dried hair.

Step 2: Go for middle parting and comb your hair out with a thin tooth-comb. Make sure that it is left looking even on both sides.

Step 3: Once combed through, take a bit of your favorite hair pomade or clay and apply it to your bangs. Don’t overdo it since you want to avoid a greasy look.

PS: If your hair is curly or wavy you can set it in place with a flat iron. This way, you will get rid of any frizz and end up with the exact same outcome. You can also spray it with a bit of hairspray to prolong its wear time and longevity.
