The High and Tight: Spotlight on the Classic Men's Haircut
The classic High and Tight haircut, commonly worn by United States Marines and Army Rangers, is a favorite military style haircut. While the cut may be a bit extreme for many civilians, for those looking for a highly masculine, low-maintenance haircut, the high and tight is a great option. The high refers to the longer hair on top above the temples, while the tight refers to the hair that is closely shaved below. It also has a bit more character than the popular buzzcut style haircut.
While this haircut is often worn by soldiers in many branches of the military, where regulations permit, it is the common haircut worn by many in the United States Marine Corps (although it is not required), who are often called "jarheads" because the style resembles a mason jar. This hairstyle works perfectly for those who frequently have to wear helmets or other forms of headwear.
This photo is what I consider the classic high and tight. For this style, the sides and back are shaved all the way up to just past the round of the head (the sides are wet shaved with a straight razor). Because of the shape of his face, the top was cut free-hand clipper-over-comb to allow me to achieve a slightly flat shape on top. While some in the civilian world may choose to wear this style with a visible line of demarcation between the shaved sides and the top, any visible line would certainly be out of regulation for most men in the armed services. For an example of how the high and tight is properly blended, see the side view of this haircut on the next panel.
