The feather haircut has often been sported by people with longer hair lengths, but in the present day, many people with short or medium hair lengths too have been seen getting this haircut.

The reason this haircut gets the name the “feather cut” is because of the look of this hairstyle. The hair is cut in such a way, making it look like subtle feathers.
