Definition: A very common haircut among US Marines, Army Rangers, and athletes. The hair is cut "high and tight" on the sides and back (zero length up to the crown). The top is usually crewcut length and may be blended with the sides or left with a distinct line between the shaved sides and longer top. The sides and back of the head are commonly shaved with a straight razor. A bit of gel or pomade can be used to give the top control or texture.
