High and Tight Haircut with Cool Beard Style

Mix a hipster beard with a high and tight for a great look!

It really should be said that here at BestHairstylesForMen.net I do have a thing for hairstyles with beards. When combined correctly, a well groomed beard will enhance your hairstyle by far and I’ve posted examples of great beard styles like this undercut hairstyle with a beard and this other disconnected haircut with a beard. Do it right (i.e. keep it well groomed), and you will find yourself turning heads wherever you go.

The High and Tight hairstyle

Aside from the undercut hairstyle and the different disconnected haircuts, the high and tight haircut is yet another great men’s hairstyle that suits the wearing of a full beard. The high and tight is a military haircut that has been used since the 1960s by the United States Marines and other military forces from around the world. The reason for the popularity of the high and tight in military circles is very simple: the high and tight is a low-maintenance haircut.

In retrospect, a high and tight haircut is just a shorter undercut haircut. In a high and tight haircut, the hair on the sides and back of the head is buzzed with a low hair clipper length. There’s no tapering, smoothing or fading of the hair on the sides and back of the head when it comes to the actual high and tight haircut. Once the hair on the sides and back of the head is clipped with a short clipper length, the hair on the top of the head is then clipped too. The hair clipper length used for the hair on the top of the head in a high and tight is to be two to three times higher than the hair clipper length used on the sides and back of the head; this is very important!

The high and tight haircut is a hair clipper haircut. There’s no scissors involved in a high and tight. If you buzz the sides and back with a number 1 clipper length, then you’d use a number 3 or number 4 hair clipper length for the top of the head. It’s that simple and you can pretty much give yourself a great high and tight haircut in 5 minutes sharp, provided that you have a good hair clipper.

Combining a hipster beard with the high and tight

A hipster beard is simply a full beard style. It’s a type of beard style that is currently most popular with hipster males. Admittedly, the full beard style has always enjoyed some healthy popularity as it usually fits any male regardless of his face shape. Thus, combining a hipster beard with a high and tight haircut is a recipe for awesomeness. Just see below for yourself!
