So after going with a shorter haircut for awhile, I decided to go back to a more groomed, side parted look.  Been using this stuff for a month and had my barber use it on this weeks cut- see the…Continue

Hey all, can anyone give me advice in this arena.  I wear a throwback 1950's cleancut businessman style and feel like most of my grey hairs are masked by the pomade I use, but the fiancee says I…Continue

"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…"

"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.…"
