    A regular business man’s taper cut or an ivy league suit fine/thinner hair. A shorter version of a crew cut or flat top crew cut can suit fine/thinner hair depending on the head shape. Since you normally buzz it down to a butch and suit the style then your head shape should be fine for these styles.
    short regular taper cut, fine/thinner hair:
    ivy league(long crew cut) thick hair:
    ivy league(long crew cut), fine/thinner hair:
    Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league is usually worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form a short pomp front, and can also be worn with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.
    medium crew cut:
    Edge: tapered or outlined
    [crew cut above illustrates an outlined edge around the ear arches and an edge tapered to the skin at the nape of the neck. His crew cut is about 1.4" at the front hairline; 0.35" at the back of the crown; #1.5 blade around the ear arches and sideburns; #000 blade at the edge of hair growth at the nape of the neck.]
    To know the approximate length of a hair in a photo of a particular style: measure the face length in the photo from the center of the front hairline to the tip of the chin; measure the hair in the photo; assume an average eight inch adult male face length; proportionally adjust the lengths of the face and hair in the photo by assuming the length of the face in the photo is eight inches.
    To grow out a short summer style and have a nice looking style as it grows out and assuming an average rate of hair growth of 1/8" per week and haircuts every three weeks: short crew cut; medium crew cut; short ivy league; ivy league; long ivy league; regular taper cut. At this point there will be around three inches on top and the back and sides can start to grow over the ears and collar with haircuts every six to nine weeks to add shape and even up new growth.
    A control wax will keep the hair looking well groomed at crew cut and ivy league length. A butch comb also helps- the small, flat, plastic, oval, pocket brushes that one finger fits through and barbers sell for about a dollar. A boar’s bristle military brush is available for a few dollars and is nice to have at home.
    Clippers, Blades and Guards:
    Basic short cuts:
    Grooming any of the short pomp(pompadour) styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- is basically the same and takes about a minute or two.
    1) Towel dry hair.
    2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.
    3)Transfer wax to palms.
    4) Smooth palms over hair.
    5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.
    Whichever style you decide on, be sure to take a photo to help describe the desired haircut to the barber. If you need photos of any of the styles discussed above let me know.
    Good Luck!

    two words: bowl cut

    Put a tight-fitting bowl over your head and cut any hair that hangs out from under off. The best part about this style is that it looks sexy and you can do it from home, so it won’t break your bank. Plus DIY is in.
