The Buzz Cut
A general term used to refer to haircuts that are done entirely with clippers. Technically speaking, there is no “official” style which can be called a buzz cut. The buzz cut is known to be an extremely short haircut, and usually barbers and hairstylists don’t even use attachments with their clippers when cutting someone’s hair into a buzz cut. It’s easy to maintain, although men who live in very sunny places may want to take caution, and the short style puts the scalp at risk of sunburn.
The Crew Cut
With two common versions—the American and European version—the crew cut is the go-to hairstyle for many men across the globe. For the American way of wearing a crew cut, the hair is usually tapered in the back and on the sides and is up to one inch long on the top. On the other hand, the European version of the crew cut is considered any haircut that is short—no longer than one quarter of an inch—all around the head. The European version may be tapered in the back and on the sides, but it does not have as dramatic a difference in length as the American crew cut version has.
The Regulation Haircut
The regulation haircut is a very short haircut that is also very tapered. While the top is left cut a bit longer than the rest of the hair, the hair on the sides and back of the head is cut very short and close to the scalp. There are several different lengths, and attachments are used to make the shorter lengths of the regulation haircut. It’s very important that men who want a regulation haircut be specific to get just the look they want.
The High and Tight (High Regulation)
The “high and tight” haircut (also known as “high regulation”, “high reg”) is very common among the American military and is directly related to the Marines. Hair is cut very closely and neatly to the head, and stylists and barbers usually cut the hair on the sides and back of the head with clippers and no attachment. For the top of the head, they usually keep it about one quarter of an inch in length. Of course, while it’s a popular men’s haircut for the Marines, other men often enjoy the style as well.
The Low and Tight (Low Regulation)
Also known as Low Regulation (Log Reg)
Judging by its name, it’s easy to presume that the low and tight is quite similar to the high and tight haircut. The major difference in these military looks is that the low and tight keeps the hair on the sides and the back of the head roughly half-trimmed, and keeps the rest of the hair longer. The length and style gives the low and tight a more casual look, but many men use it with a flat-top to set themselves apart and have a unique style.
The Landing Strip
The landing strip refers to the part of the scalp that can be seen in a very short hair cut, usually the flat area of the scalp, and not the whole thing. Landing strip sizes differ according to the different hairstyles and lengths of cut, as some are naturally smaller than others. Each style Different hairstyles offer different landing strip sizes with some being small and others much larger. The landing strip brings different requirements according to different men’s hairstyles.
