The High and Tight
Military hair with a twist
A classic military style, high and tights have vastly increased in popularity among civilians recently.
If you’re someone who wants to look neat and slick, then the high and tight haircut is for you. There are no wild, flowing locks that need hours of maintenance here: each strand stands to attention and in its place.
Like all military hairstyles, you want to keep the high and tight as short as possible, especially at the sides (the ‘tight’). Keep some more height at the front of your hair to achieve the quiff you need (the ‘high’).
How it Began
The high and tight haircut is a military variant on the old fashioned crew cut. Popular with people from all walks of life, this professional looking cut has been around since the '50s.
The go-to style for guys who like to keep things simple but stylish. It’s minimal effort but has maximum appeal.
