So I'm thinking of trying out a new haircut, but I'm not sure if its unprofessional or not. Don't want it to effect any internship prospects. Was thinking about getting the same haircut as Tommy in the Netflix show Peaky Blinders.

A gal's perspective... I don't think that the "Shelby" is unprofessional in the least, as you're speaking of short or damn-near sheared sides/back with a bit more length on top.

That being said, I've noticed that this sort of haircut can make some men look very boyish/younger-than-you-might-what-to-appear.

Of course depending on your facial structure and overall build and appearance, your mileage may vary.

Makes sense. All of the Shelby's look really young besides Arthur.

I got that haircut two summers ago and honestly I loved it, great show too. But this summer I just wanted to be conservative during my internship. Think you'd be okay to roll with it but would test it out sooner than later in case the look does not suit you.

Depending on where you interview for internships, some may be off-put by what may be considered a "fashion-forward" haircut. I'd stick with a crew/ivy cut, then when you get the internship you can change your haircut.

An analyst I work with has a cleaner version of that cut and sports it well. If it looks good on you and you can pull it off clean then go for it. You should rock the Bateman cut like me.

Dayman?

For bonus points, get a swastika buzzed into the side so there can be no question as to your racial purity.

You should get a haircut suitable for your face shape. Tom Shelby's style is only good if you are very thin with strong jaw lines. If you have a round and slightly fat face - might want to leave a bit more hair on the sides.
