    I've recently gotten a haircut. A 0 fade on the sides and a trim on the top enough to spike/faux hawk it.

    But a few of the ppl i know say it looks too "military".


    Just wondering if theres any other way to get the similar effect of this haircut i got but not..looking like i just got back from the marines! haha.

    heres a pic of me

    I don't think it looks like a military cut. If you wanted one, then I'd lose the sideburns and leave a lot less on top.

    However, for what you're looking for, why not go 'softer' on the sides? Instead of a 0A ( 1.8 mm on a Wahl)... try for a "1" (2.0 mm) or "1A" (2.8 mm) on the sides and ask for a more gradual fade/taper?

    ^ +1 what he said... the sides need to be more gradual.

    Your haircut definitely doesn't look like a military haircut; way too much hair on top for that. A more gradual fade would suit a faux hawk style much better.

    Personally I think it would look better if the top was a bit shorter and the sides at least two weeks longer. But it's not as drastic as I was expecting.

    It reminds me of Eason's hairstyle a year ago.

    That's far from a high and tight.

    Just go to any good salon and tell them to give you the "Eason", they'll know what to do.

    +1

    Still looks good though, you seem to have the right type of hair for that cut.

    Yeah, it's generally a douchebag type style. Go shorter on top and go with a more gradual fade, and don't spike it. Next time you go in, ask for an ivy league cut.
