The Ivy League Haircut is short and classy which gives off a very elegant look. Since this haircut owes its popularity to undergraduates of the Ivy League universities, it is also known by other names like the Brown Clip, Cambridge cut, a Princeton Clip or a Harvard Clip. Men in the military are equally known to adorn this haircut.  They like this hairstyle because it has short sides which complimented their dress codes or uniforms well.

The forward look was meant for variation. People of all ages wear this hairstyle such as Jesse McCartney, Taylor Lautner (from Twilight) and Jeremy Renner to name a few.
