Shape-Up is the name given to a form of grooming that involves straightening the hairline. The haircut is mostly popular with those who have an African hair type.

It is typically found among men. The barber uses T-shaped clippers ("outliner"), or a sharp razor blade to line up the customer's hair line, circling the entire head to include behind the ears, the back of the head, and sideburns. The barber may remove other hair which is visible from the customer's shirt collar growing from the back or lower neck.
