why do you have the haircut you do?
i have a flat top with a landing strip i have always had a
flattop dad would get my haircut cut that way for years
going to the barbers every 2 weeks
it was a 50s box flattop (dad has the same) its only in
the last few days i have had a flat top with a landing strip
its an easy haircut to have all it needs it a little wax
I am a man born out of time (I think that's the phrase). I am emotionally stuck in the 19th century and then somewhat stuck in the 50's. I do a classic part because A) it fits my face better than a glove fits OJ Simpson's hand, and B) It can suffice for either time era with some different combing techniques. So it just feels proper and I feel fancy. In a good way... a manly way...
same here i wish i was the age i am now but in the 1950s
always think shot hair look
Because the army says I have to. I look better with short hair anyways.

As one of the most visible aspects of our appearance, the haircut and hairstyle (not the same thing) are of tremendous importance with regards to the impression we make on others.
As to why it's styled the way it is... When I went flat *on my 40th birthday* I went to a traditional barber. And got the opposite of what I had walked in with, a long pompadour. Huge change. You see, five different barbers had been begging me to go flat for months, so I finally relented. The angularity offsets the roundness in my face, making for a more harmonious and balanced appearance.
But it took a week before I recognized myself in the mirror! :) Now it's become iconic. I'm *known* for my flattop, and it's always well received. It's just...me.
Over the last 2 years I've experimented with various shapes of flattops, longer, shorter, boxier, beveled, and even full horseshoe. But the flatness remained a constant. Two of the barbers I use are image consultants, and had been insisting that for me, it should be extra short with shaved sides and back. Scary, but I tried it. I was stopped and complimented by 3 men on the street within the next hour. Obviously a good look.
Now that I've learned to cut my own flattop, I can play with the exact proportions as I see fit. I've decided to standardize on a very high and tight Marine Corps style flattop. I keep it severe, even technically a horseshoe, but not quite so severe as one you'd have done at the base. It's quite flattering, and I've never looked better.
good to here
I wear a side parted pomp (sometimes bigger, somtimes smaller and more classic) with a razored part that I can refresh myself daily. I like that haircut cause of it's clean and handsome look. For styling I use one of my now 12 hair pomades xD (DAX Wave and Groom, DAX Green and Gold, Murrays Nu Nile, Murrays Superior, Sweet Georgia Brown, Schmiere (German one), Bone Crusher (GE), Morgans Hair Darkening Pomade,etc.) I like my back and my sides tapered to almost zero at least every 3-4 weeks (earlier if possible) and my neck blocked. Young girls of my age and old people both like my hair and I get compliments over compliments. But I have to say that my complete style goes into that Rockabilly direction.Greets from Germany Max
very cool love the rockabilly look
Thanks but since we have NO breal barbers anymore here in Germany it was a pain in the ass to get there. Only good barbers we can go to are the private turkish and persian ones. Besides that we have Salons =(
same with my hair when my old barber closed down getting my flattop done was hell but i have since learnt to cut it myself i start barber school soon so will learn how to do real haircuts
I will after...well what we call Gymnasium over here (sort of like college)...... I don't want to got to university without having learned something "real". Hope my english skills make it through the talk =) ^^
