Peaky Blinders' Cillian Murphy absolutely hates the Tommy Shelby haircut

Say what you want about Peaky Blinders, but the series has been responsible for somewhat of a style revolution, and whether it’s your thing or not, the look has become pretty ubiquitous.

The flat cap, the three-piece suits – and the now iconic 1920s period haircut.

A simple google of the term ‘Peaky Blinders haircut’ yields endless pieces on how to ask for the Tommy Shelby cut, how to style and maintain it.

But despite the style’s popularity, its poster boy Cillian Murphy actually hates it.

‘People ask for a Peaky cut. It’s crazy that people like it – it hasn’t grown on me,’ he told Woman and Home.

The 43-year-old bemoaned how easily recognised he is with the shaved sides and long top.

‘It’s when you get the haircut that people start shouting at ya,’ he said.

‘When I don’t have the haircut I can get the bus quite unmolested.’

Leave Cillian alone!

When the Cork actor isn’t in character he usually sports a longer style, a far cry from his character’s look.

The hugely anticipated fifth season of Peaky Blinders kicked off on BBC One last night to positive reviews.

The episode also delivered a heartbreaking blow, leaving fans reeling.
