"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…"

Nate Thallas replied to Mikey's discussion Flattop Haircut
"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.…"

"Man I wouldn't sweat it, especially if you already keep a tight fade anyways.  The younger guys will just call you old school.  I personally think it is one of the few timeless hairstyles."

Hi there Mikey. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
