Bryson-K. Jones, USMC Soldier Style Might Be the Way to Go This gallery contains several great men's haircuts for guys looking for a short, military haircut. To make sure you get exactly the cut you're looking for, I recommend printing a photo of the style and taking it with you. For even more pictures of men's haircuts, browse our hairstyle galleries and be sure to read our men's product guides. We can show you how to get a great men's haircut. For this classic Ivy League, the hair is cut aggressively short on the sides and back (using a #1 blade) and finger length on top. For off-duty versatility, a bit of pomade can be applied and the top styled with a bit of texture. 02 of 10 Crewcut Sgt. Scott Biscuiti, USMC If you want to go for this crewcut, make sure your hair is cut with a #1 blade on the sides and back. Use a #2 blade on the top, and be sure to leave just a bit more length in the front. 03 of 10 Ivy League Staff Sgt. Sergio Jimenez, USMC For this Ivy League haircut, the hair is cut aggressively close on the sides and back. The top is cut clipper short (using a #4 blade at the crown) and gradually gets longer toward the front of the head. 04 of 10 Medium Regulation Lance Cpl. Meloney R. Moses, USMC This cut is a medium regulation cut. In civilian terms, it is referred to as a medium fade. The hair is cut to the skin on the sides and back about one-third of the way up the head and gradually fades into the longer length on top. 05 of 10 High Regulation Lance Cpl. Meloney R. Moses, USMC For this high regulation (called a high fade in civilian terms), the hair is cut close to the skin two-thirds of the way up the head and then fades into the longer hair on top. 06 of 10 High and Tight MTMCOINS/iStockphoto.com This is a very popular haircut among United States Marines, Army Rangers, and athletes. The hair is cut high and tight on the sides and back (and zero length up to the crown). 07 of 10 Butch Frazer Harrison/Getty Images In this butch haircut, the hair is clipped to the skin on the sides and back and then gradually tapers into a #2 blade cut on the top. It's easy to see that this is the ultimate low-maintenance style. 08 of 10 Short Caesar Cpl. Jeffrey Belovarac, USMC This short Caesar is clipped aggressively short on the sides and back (using a #1 blade). The top is left about one inch long and can be worn forward as shown. For a little variety, some men like to use gel to spike the top upward. 09 of 10 Brush Cut For the brush cut, the hair is clipper cut short, high up the sides and back. The top is blow-dried up and the top is cut into a flat top, except the sides are rounded a bit more. This is a good option if you have straight hair and a slightly receding hairline. 10 of 10 Buzzcut With Texture This is a unique take on the traditional buzzcut. For this style, the hair is cut aggressively short in the back and on the sides (using a #1 blade), while the top is left a bit longer in the center. The result is that when worn dry, the top has just a bit more texture. However, you can add gel or styling paste for more texture or, you can style it into a faux-hawk look.
