Bowl Haircut

A bowl cut, also known as a pot haircut, or a mushroom cut, is a haircut where the hair is cut short on the sides and back and looking as though someone put a bowl on the head and cut off all the visible hair.

From the late twentieth century on, the haircut resurfaced as a counterculture style credited to the Beatles’ moptop hairstyles and the Ramones’ early stylized bowl cuts. The bowl cut gained popularity in America among teenaged and pre-teen boys in the 1980s and the hairstyle was a veritable fad in some American locales. The popularity of the bowl cut faded in the early/mid-1990s.
