I have been keeping my hair tapered short on the back and sides with a clean part on the left side which I slick back with Pomade for a very sharp clean cut. My barber is suggesting I have him razor…Continue

"Evals, that's why.  I hate to say it but even something as stupid as 'You don't conform to the unit's standards even though you are within regs" will hurt your evals.  And it won't be a direct…"

"You are not to old to wear a flattop. I have been sporting one for 5 years and am in my mid-fifties. If you like the haircut, go for it."

"Go for it.  A flattop looks sharp and classy on just about any man.  I wish I could get one, but I'm balding on top."

"Flattops look cool, but only *if* you have the confidence to wear one.  The most severe variations are particularly distinctive.   Standing out in a crowd is not *necessarily* a bad thing.   I've posted this photo…"

"I think you need to refer your CO to the grooming standards for your service.  Requiring a H&T is going too far and he can't demand you wear a certain style as long as you're within regs.  BUT he may go above and beyond to…"

Mike S. replied to Mikey's discussion Flattop Haircut
"Flatops look dumb, so do high and tights. As long as your hair is within regs and neat looking, I'd say don't sweat it. I do a 1 1/2 guard on the sides and leave about 1 inch on top, faded of course. Looks neat and clean enough for the…"

"Both photos from The Flattop Crew in Australia.  I can tell where your sentiments lie.   Okay, I too am 43 years old, so you can't say I'm younger or older or whatever.  I wear a flattop *nearly* at all times.  I let it…"

"Everyone looks good in a flattop. Not me. My head already looks like a cinder block. I tried a flat-top once, and just buzzed it all. My girlfriend at the time said I looked like an old windup robot toy, and she was right. Just a buzz is my advice.…"
