A barber’s experience with sexy men’s haircuts
I want to cover the topic of sexy men’s haircuts with a focus on the high and tight haircut. After all, most guys getting a haircut are looking to improve their looks and be more attractive to the opposite sex (or same sex). I’ve been getting questions about whether the high and tight hairstyle is the right hairstyle for a sexy look, so I thought that just talking about it publicly in my site would be a better way to get the word out for all you folks out there considering the best haircut for males worldwide (i.e. the High and Tight!).
Is the high and tight a sexy haircut for men?
I’ve cut high and tight haircuts in places as fa as Iraq with my fellow army comrades and I continue to cut the high and tight and other military haircuts to this day. So I get the chance to talk with my barbershop customer (or in the past, with my brothers in arms) about how the high and tight haircut is seen by women. I’ve also talked about how the high and tight haircut is seen in the gay community.
By the way, my barbershop is pro LGBT and I welcome heterosexual men as well as homosexual men (or women) to my barbershop. The same applies to this blog. Since I’m commenting on our favorite haircut, I’d rather make this clear and perhaps lose a few readers who are anti-gay than instead stay silent and not cover in this article how the high and tight haircut is also seen as a sexy haircut in the gay scene and not just by women. With that said, let’s continue.
Women love the high and tight haircut
I have to tell you that almost every single male whom I have cut his hair into a high and tight has told me that their girlfriend, wife or any other ladies find the high and tight cut a very sexy haircut. First, women love military men (this is another fact), and the high and tight haircut is in my opinion the flagship haircut of the military. You will have men in the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force and in lots of countries sporting the high and tight or a variation of it like the undercut haircut or the Recon haircut. So when a woman sees a guy with a high and tight, she automatically associates the haircut with the military, even if you just work in a bakery!
Another reason for the high and tight being a very sexy haircut for men is that the high and tight makes you masculine features stand out more. Actually when I have a barbershop customer asking me to recommend a haircut for him and he happens to have a baby face, a not-so masculine face or a weak chin or weak jaw, I recommend the high and tight haircut for him as it will make him look more masculine. It works every single time, and it’s been proven that “real” women love masculine men. That’s unless you’re a teenager yourself and you’re after teenage girls who are into that Justin Bieber crap.
Here’s an example of how the high and tight makes your face look manlier and more masculine:
If you want to look more masculine then get a high and tight haircut. If you have a weak chin or a weak jaw, the high and tight will put more emphasis on the top of your head than in your jaw when someone looks at you. Then, because of the military association of the high and tight and because of the aggressive lines of the haircut, you will look way more masculine with a high and tight haircut than with any other men’s haircut. I absolutely guarantee this to you.
All you need is a high-quality hair clipper and you’re just minutes away from getting an excellent haircut that will be very welcomed by women.
Gay men also love the high and tight
OK, if you’re not interested in reading about the feedback that I’ve had about the high and tight haircut in the gay community, then you can skip the rest of this article and go to my high and tight blog for more articles and posts on military haircuts.
For the same reason that women love the high and tight haircut because of its association with military men, gay men also love the high and tight haircut. Short haircuts from plain buzz cuts to undercuts are the most popular haircuts for young gay men. That doesn’t mean that one cannot be a gay male and have long hair, not at all. But among young gay males in big cities like New York, San Francisco and London, the short haircuts are very popular. And, among the most popular and the one deemed the sexiest is the high and tight haircut.
The problem with the high and tight and the high and tight recon haircut is that they’re somewhat extreme as men’s haircuts. What that means is that you will not be able to wear a sharp high and tight with whitewalls (i.e. shaved sides and back) if you work in an office or if you’re a manager. The same goes for other jobs that involve facing your customers or the public. Thus the high and tight isn’t seen a lot on the gay scene and instead it’s the common burr cut, butch cut or induction cut that’s seen with more frequency. These two haircuts are simply buzzcuts with different hair clipper lengths that are formal enough for just about any job out there.
You won’t see many high and tight haircuts in the gay scene because of the above reason, but many of my gay barbershop customers tell me that they absolutely love the high and tight and that they’d love to be able to have one only if their job allowed for it. The recon haircut, which is a variation of the high and tight, is also seen as a sexy haircut and possibly more than the regular high and tight.
Yes, the high and tight is a sexy haircut!
Being a barber isn’t just about being able to cut good haircuts, it’s also about giving your customer a good barbershop experience so that he or she leaves your barbershop happy with having spent 30 minutes getting a polished and sharp haircut. One part of being a barber is having a conversation with your customer as you cut his hair, although this isn’t essential (I do actually do it though). So I’ve had lots of chances to hear hundreds if not thousands of testimonials of how the high and tight haircut is the sexiest haircut for men!
Ultimately, if you want a new haircut and want to look more masculine or want to be more attractive to women or men, then do consider the high and tight hairstyle as you will be marveled with how it gets you luscious attention from the opposite sex or same sex!
