i actually have a pretty normal barber-ish looking haircut, kind of vintage - pretty long on top and cropped very neatly on the sides so sometimes i can rock a sweep bang, but most of the time i slick it back in a pomp. for my hair to look like that i need a stylist to hack away with straight razors and take out bulk on the top etc then be able to blend the really close cropped sides in a way that there isn't a obvious 'ledge' - yet to have a barber do it as seamlessly, and believe you me i've tried - have been to several different people at our hip chain of old school barbers here in austin (www.birdsbarbershop.com)
with that being said if you're the guy that can get by with a barber cut and it looks good, congrats. i'm not that guy.
i will say though, i've had super duper short fades done by stylists and barbers, and the barber did a way better job and it grew out perfectly. there is totally an art to barbering - it just doesn't work well for the style i want to rock now.
