Flat Top Hairstyles For Black Men
What is Flat Top?
Le Flat Top is a hairstyle where the hair is cut short to be able to stand upright. Specifically, the headgear is very short on the back and sides of the head with on top a fairly short hair length skillfully trimmed to form a flat top. The Flat Top is distinguished by the gradient or bland side, Afro cut, short sides and flat top.
There are variants of this hairstyle with flat-top fade and high-top fade. We love Flat Top with the gradients on the side.
