Military dress and style sometime play roles in influencing street fashion. One of the visible influences in the 21st century is the high and tight haircut. In order to create this style, you must know the methods used to cut the hair in this fashion. If you plan on cutting your hair to attend the military or a military school, these programs usually provide a barber to cut your hair for you.

When people speak of a "high and tight" haircut, they mean the "high regulation," a common haircut for Marines. To achieve this style, the barber clipper-cuts the hair on the side of the head, using no attachment, so that it is close to shaved (without actually using a razor). Additionally, they clipper-cut the hair on top of the head using a "1," according to Men's Haircuts. In addition to the Marines, soccer player David Beckham also popularised the high regulation cut.
The low regulation looks much like the high regulation, except that the barber trims the hair on the top and sides of the head a bit longer. This removes some of the severity of the cut. For this cut, start by cutting the sides with a "2" and the top with a "4," and work your way shorter until you reach the length desired.
The brush cut modifies the high regulation by adding length to the top of the head but leaves the sides clipper cut. The hair at temple height is faded into the length at the top of the head. The wearer then spikes the hair on the top of the head to resemble the tip of a paintbrush (hence the name).
You can modify the high regulation, low regulation and brush cut hairstyles into a short mohawk by leaving the back as long as the top, creating a wide section of hair that moves from the forehead to the nape of the neck. Fade the mohawk on the side by using a ½ guard (push out the lever on the side of the clippers). Using bare clippers, shave the section around the ears and above the sideburns.
