The high and tight haircut is a military haircut and a short mens haircut that has been portrayed in movies such as Jarhead and Saving Private Ryan. These days, the high and tight remains a trendy hairstyle among young males who want to have a more unique haircut than a plain buzz cut and who also need a low maintenance cut.
The high and tight haircut is done with a clipper number one or two on the back and sides of the head, while the top is don with a clipper number four. At all times a hair clipper is used to crop the hair and never are scissors used. This thus makes the high and tight haircut a very easy haircut to give oneself.

I would like to post below the pictures of the high and tight haircut of Jake Gyllenhaal in the 2005 movie Jarhead. In the movie, Jake Gyllenhaal plays a Marine sent to Iraq and, with regards to his hair cut, the high and tight is indeed the favorite haircut of Marines, together with the high and tight recon.
Enjoy the pictures. Hopefully it can give you some male haircut inspiration!
