The Flat Top haircut with Pictures and Products

The Flat Top haircut with Pictures and Products
I was going through pictures of NFL player Mike Ditka when I found pictures of his Flat Top haircut back when he was with the Chicago Bears.

Flat Top haircuts are rare outside military life although back in the 1960s and 1970s, the Flat Top was a more common barbershop haircut among civilians. The haircut itself needs to be done by a skilled barber, especially one with experience in military haircuts. Likewise, you will need straight hair to be able to pull a proper FlatTop, hence the rarity of this particular military cut.

If this one was slightly shorter, it could be considered a Brush Cut too

Hair products for the Flat Top haircut

I recommend you to get your first Flat Top at the barbershop by a skilled barber. Only then, use a hair clipper to retouch the sides and back. You can also retouch the hair on the top with a hair clipper or with shears. To style a Flat Top, all you will need is some good hair wax or gel.

Hair products to get
- Get this premium hair clipper: this is the kind of hair clipper designed to cut through all kinds of hair and the battery lasts a damn long time. It is cordless and of very high quality, hence the price. See it as an investment.
- Get this set of shears: just like with a good hair clipper, it is always a good thing to have a set of shears at home to do all kinds of haircuts you want without having to go and pay for a haircut that involves minimal trimming you could have done yourself.
- Get this hair wax: use a fingertip to help keep the hair vertical.
- Get this hair gel: just like with the hair wax although the hair gel will give a harder look to your hair.

thick solid tight
for those of us with curls and kinks the flattop is the equivalent of the high top fade then right?

That's correct, Robert. Although a High Top Fade is usually longer and can be shaped vertically in different ways, but in crude terms, yes, they are similar, especially since a Fat Top is done with straight hair and a High Top Fade with curly kinky hair.

Another haircut that I think it's difficult for someone to pull off.

The one I liked much, having such a haircut, is Kurt Russel in Stargate!
