What exactly is a flat top haircut and how it is done? Flat top is a kind of a crew cut where the front hair is graduated at a length of 1 and half cm. The haircut goes from the front hairline to the crown on the back, making a squarish flattop cut that looks different when seen by different angles, it may have sharp or rounded edges. The same goes with the shaft of the hair, for instance the upper sides of the cut can be either boxy or rounded but their corners may have a style such as sharp or rounded depending on the cut.
The hair on the sides and back of the head is cut very professionally according to the desire of the wearer, it could be tapered short, long, semi-short or medium depending on the face shape. The flattop is graduated on the top of the head but is curved down the back of the head, it is also tapered near the ears or sometimes between the ears. Some men love wearing flattop hairstyles with fenders, some wear it with duck tail while others wear simple flattop boogie to look beautiful.
