Jimmy Darmody popularizes slick back undercut with his haircut
If we could pick one celebrity from Hollywood to be the poster child for the slicked back undercut hairstyle, then that’d be, without a shred of a doubt, Michael Pitt. Known for his slick back undercut as Jimmy Darmody in Boardwalk Empire, Michael Pitt has gone as far as to adopt the same haircut and hair style in real life as the one that he has as per his Jimmy Darmody role.
Boardwalk Empire is based in the 1920s during the Prohibition era in the United States. Back then, the slicked back undercut was a popular men’s hairstyle sported by low-class and middle-class workers, while the upper-class men preferred the side part hairstyle. In any case, Jimmy Darmody’s slicked back undercut has become so popular that we’ve had our hair salon customers ask for a Jimmy Darmody haircut. Go figure!
