Military haircuts haven’t been known to be trendy or stylish, but the right style on the right person can really make all the difference. Historically, military haircuts were only used by personnel (e.g. soldiers), but the last few years have seen military styles surge in popularity among men.
Generally speaking, all military style haircuts are short hairstyles. This is because short hair is low-maintenance, hygienic, and will never block a soldier’s vision on the battlefield. It is also a general observation that, as a soldier rises in the ranks, his hair is allowed to be longer. Of course this is not an official mandate, but it stands to reason that higher ranking officers don’t spend as much time on actual battlefields.
