Wasn't sure about where to post this question but I figured this was as good as any of the boards.  What do women think about a flattop haircut on men?

Hi Hawg!  I like a man in a flattop.  My husband got one and I got a feminine one.  He wanted to see me in one and I wanted to see him in one.  So we went and got them.  I may be the only female out there that likes them but I do like them on men.  Are you thinking of getting one?

I am; I have had one before and really liked it.  Wish I could talk my wife into one; I too love a woman in a flattop. Thanks for your comment, here's some pictures I've found of women with a flattop; any of them like yours?

Yes the one that is at the bottom--Kat's.  It is kind of short.  But it is really easy to take care of.  Does your wife wear her hair short?  I think a flattop looks good on a man though.

Not right now; when the kids were little, she kept it short; right now, it's a couple of inches past her shoulders; she says she'll go short again if she can drop some weight.  Here's some flattops you might like:

Thanks Debbie, a week and a half of training it to stand up and I'll get it cut again on the 5th of August, the next full moon.

the flattop with the bangs is the best one, however as I stated previously this is NOT a recommended cut for most women imho.

Pixie cuts, yes, Bobs most definitely!

Hawg, I was wondering if you still have the flattop?  I still have mine and love it.  I go every 2 weeks to get mine recut.  Have a nice day!  Debbie

Debbie, I am impressed that you still have your flattop after two years. My wife had let me cut hers in a flattop last summer and since let it grow back in. I did not take the sides that short (only used a #3 blade) but did taper tight around the nape and ears.  She is planning to get it cut again in the spring without a doubt. This cut is very easy to take care of when cut correct and use of a little "crew comb stick" (product). I need to say ladies who get clipper cuts have fear of going this short and those who do very short cuts show no fear. As my wife said "it sure beats having to pull your up in a ponytail to beat the heat.

Enjoy
Mike

Debbie, I've let it grow a little; will probably go back to it when it gets warmer. Thanks for asking and I too am impressed that you still have yours; I think that is awesome.

Mine is cut a number one on the sides and the back and then whatever she cuts my top half with.  I go to Great Clips every 2 weeks.  I love the ease of it, and use a styleing gel from Walmart.  I have been meaning to buy some crew gel but just haven't done it yet.  Heck I have been bald, buzzed in yrs  past so nothing would bother me.  I love this flattop though.  This is the only hairstyle for me now.  I agree with your wife on it beating the heat!!!

I love mine!  To me there is no other haircut for the time being!  Like I told Mike I go every 2 weeks and get it retrimmed.  My husband seems to be happy that I am so happy.  Hey, it sodesn't take much to make me happy! :-)

Hello.  My name is Beth.  28 years old.  About your topic of a guy with a flat-top crew cut......................... I absolutely adore them!!!   My b/f at the moment has short barber cut hair, but not a crew cut.  Every time he goes to the barber for a haircut, I always tell him to get a flat-top crew cut.  But he doesn't.  My X-b/f always got a crew cut.
The barber shop he went to cut his hair so perfect, so freeking short.  Talk about great "haircut day sex".  Lol.

I think it depends on a person's features and head shape. A close friend of mine has a flat top and he sometimes grows it a bit longer on top. He always returns to this style and it suits him best. My husband, on the other hand, would likely look alright with one, but I prefer what he has now which is a shaved head. Normally I don't go for this look, but he has the perfect head for it. I even help him with it sometimes.

In general I think it can be a great style on the right person. Personally for me I wouldn't go that short, I'll stick with a bob.

I found a barbershop here in the town where I live!  He is so nice and I felt very comfortable in there.  The only reason that I never went to a barber before is because of the men in there.  This guy told me it shouldn't matter.  He really put me at ease.  Also I will be saving some money.  One more thing it is a really great flattop also.  I am happy! :-)

That is awesome Debbie; it's cool that they made you feel at ease there; I love seeing a woman in a barbershop.  Where is this shop and what is its name?  I haven't been able to find a barbershop where I live that has a barber that can do a decent flattop or even a decent haircut for that matter; nobody I've found can taper properly; they just buzz the sides with a number 1 and call that skin tight.  I usually go to a military base once a month to visit the PX and Commissary and while there I visit the barbershop.  I say once a month because it's a 250 mile trip.

Hawg I sent you a PM.  I live in Southern Illinois.  Too bad you can't find a good barber where you live!  I was going to Great Clips but now that I have found him and he is in my hometown I won't be going to Great clips anymore.

Deb and Hawg, Let me just say how right you both are. It is hard to find a barber. I did cut hair but over the year it is just side work for me. More money can be made else where. I have a friend who works for her father's shop and she is the best I ever scene do a flat top. (better than her father & me). This is a three chair shop and her father is getting close to retirement. Her daughter is know working as a barber / stylist also. My wife likes to have her cut by Susan every now and then just for a change. You would not believe the amount of ladies that go to this shop to have thier haircut. Not all have it cut short, plenty of bobs and shags and yes short cuts. Marketing is a major help in a good shop. Cost for cuts range from 10 to 15 depending on length of cut. I go every 3-4 weeks for my trims and the wife goes about every 4 to six weeks . Susan is very good with sisscor over comb for ladies who fear the clipper. I am glad to see you found a great shop. Enjoy
Mike

Mike, you were a barber?  Do you still cut your wife's hair.  My husband has cut me a flatop before but the last time he screwed it up and is now scared to cut it anymore.  My daughter spends $70-$100 on her hair.  I told her to give me a set of clippers and I could cut it myself!  LOL!  I was joking of course!!  I couldnot get over how comfortable I was.  There were men in there but they kept their cimments to themselves.  If they said anything they said it after I left.  I won't pay more than $15.00 on my hair.  Tip included!

Got a flattop today; I was at Little Rock Air Force Base; the girl I've had cut my hair before wasn't there so I waited for the barber in the first chair (usually the best in the shop).  She did a terrible job; was all uneven; looked like crap.  When I got home, I buzzed it myself with a #5 all over.  I'll try again in a couple of weeks when this grows out a little.  Maybe I'll go somewhere else this next time.

Hawg, aren't they great!  Some people can cut them and some people can't.  I can't wait to get mine recut again.  I go every 2 weeks which I don't mind.  Some people go every 3 weeks but I find that is too long to wait for me.

Well the barbershop didn't last long.  He cut it about 3 times.  Kept going shorter with it.  Last time he gave me a high and tight.  The last time I was in there he stopped in the middle of my haircut and said "Wait I have to go pee!".  I thought that was very unprofessional.  He could of said "excuse me I have to go to the bathroom".  There I sat though 1/2 cut and I felt horrible.  I told my husband that I didn't think he wanted me in there.  Someone must of said something.  Anyway, I will stick with the place I go.  She does it right and never cuts it like a high and tight!  I went Saturday and got it cut so I am a happy camper!  Have a great day Everyone!

Debbie, I am so glad to see other women with flat top haircuts on here. I love mine, me and my husband wear flat tops. I wear mine more often then he has one. I started wearing mine in the 90's and still have it on and off. I have seen alot of them on women around over the years but only spoke to a few of them. Thanks Linda

HAWG, I get the same kind of flat top in the summer. I really like my flat top look, so do many others, like it on me. I saw a women in her 50's last week at a restaurant my husband and I went too. Not very short on the side and back, but the top was a flat top for sure. Linda

Hey Debbie, do you still wear a flat top. I just had mine cut up a few days a go, I still think it is a great cut. I am thinking of taking the top short, what do you think, Thanks Linda

hi HAWG, how short should I go, I see a woman a few weeks ago with a flat top and it looked like it was less then 1/2 on top you could see the top of her head in the center. it was square the way I like mine. She had all gray hair, she was 50-60 age. It look great on her not sure if it would look good on me. Linda

I think you should go slightly longer than the haircut you described; I think it'll look great but if it doesn't, the only difference in a good haircut and bad one when it's that short is just a couple of weeks.  Have fun!
