Default haircut?

What are the haircuts like in BCT? are they all one length (almost bald)? Or can you get short sides and back and longer on top?

In Basic you get one style choice.



But I believe after basic, maybe even in AIT, you will be able to get a slightly different syle so long as it meets standards. Like a fade.

Yeah, BCT definitely doesn't have a barber shop lol. It's a one size fits all type of deal..

But, on the bright side, most guys look rather attractive with their hair that short..

Like my bf. yummers.

There are definitely barber shops, and the baldy you get, you get to pay for.
hair cuts aren't free. they cost about $7.00 a pop. It will depend on your D/S but there is a possibility they may allow a "high n tight". That generally happens toward the end of the cycle or AIT.
Some units will have a "barber", a guy that can do a decent job of cutting hair while your deployed, otherwise there is no MOS for barber.
