Military haircuts are not considered as one of those trendy and stylish, since it is an army haircut. But if the style is right, it can make a huge difference. In the past, army haircut was only used by the soldiers, but it has been very popular in the last few years. Styles such as undercut, fade, buzz cut, and surge cut are very popular among the men.

Speaking generally, all army haircuts are faded and short. Short hair does not require any maintenance, and it will never block a soldier’s vision at the battlefield. It is also hygienic. Generally observed, a soldier increases the length of his hair when he is ranked high. Although this is not an official thing, but one of the reasons behind it could be that higher ranking soldiers are not found on the battle fields much.

Military Cuts

Military Burr Haircut

A burr haircut is a slightly grown out version of the induction cut. Now what is an induction cut? An induction cut is one of the shortest crew cuts that you will ever find, a bald head haircut to be precise. Essentially leaving a man with just fine subtle hair. A burr provides you a little less intense look.

This army haircut has no fade, and the length of the hair is the same throughout, giving a clean look. This haircut works great if you are losing your hair, and do not want to deal with the bald patches. Or if you want a look that is not very dramatic. If you think this haircut is very harsh for you, try a butch cut, basically a longer burr version. Try the classic tapered crew cut if you think that is also too much.
