    Re: army haircuts?

    There's a bunch of different haircuts authorized and they apply to all branches. The one used most often, especially with recruits, is the High And Tight.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_and_tight

    I wouldn't recommend trying to do it yourself. Have someone whose experienced in military haircuts do it for you. Or...yes, you can just shave it all off which is what I do, and save yourself the $10.

      The high and tight is a privelage to recruits and is earned during BCT. Males get it shaven down as low as possible. On post, getting it shaven is around $5.50 IIRC. The blood loss that comes from these hair cuts is free.

        I have used the ole BCT haircut for about 4 years now - and I've never been "wrong" (And of course - I'm the most stylish and attractive guy in the civilian workforce as well!)

        Now you might say , "Well hey Sergeant According to AR 670-1 my hair length is bla bla bla" point is , you don't want to be arguing policy with your NCO's or an Officer on the specifics of how long your hair is (And I've seen Privates get themselves burned trying to make sticking points about the length of their hair)

        Just shave it as low as you can go, minus the bald man look, and you'll always be good to go.

        And if you don't already know this - do not shave your head prior to shipping.

          just cut it short. I would not suggest going to BCT with it already shaved. lol

              Medium reg, 4 on top. I said that pretty much every Sunday afternoon while in the Marines. High and Tights are for boots .

                I stuck with the shaved look as well. I actually cut my hair like that long before I even thought about joining the Army. I would get it cut every 6 weeks or so to save some money, but since graduating AIT I bought a $30 pair of hair clippers from Wal Mart and shave it down every 2 weeks or so. If you like your hair like that, shaving it yourself really is the way to go! I've saved so much money this way.

                  make sure you all have dreadlocks and minimum length is past your shoulders. Don't be an individual.....
