Behind Daniel Day-Lewis’ Final On-Screen Haircut

V76 Founder Vaughn Acord sat down with GQ.com to explain Daniel Day-Lewis’ haircut in what is rumored to be his final on-screen role.

Day-Lewis stars as a dressmaker in the new Paul Thomas Anderson film, Phantom Thread. Acord calls Day-Lewis’ cut, seen in the recently released trailer, a "low Hollywood taper.”

"This cut sits low, so there is fullness and balance to the sides and back. The hair is meant to be swept back, as if it melts that way,” says Acord.
