How to do a military haircut

Low maintenance haircuts have gained a lot of popularity among men recently. It’s not a surprise actually, because these kinds of hairstyles are both practical and cheap, if you decide to do them by yourself. But their biggest advantage is the fact that they look great on almost anyone.

Such is the military haircut, easy to make, easy to maintain, but also pretty cool and good looking. Obviously, it’s not only for military personnel so if you want to wear it, you can do so freely. As a matter of fact, you should try it out at least once, just to see if it suits your style.

So grab your hair clippers and head to the bathroom because we’ll be showing you how to do a military haircut in no time. Let’s begin.

First step: Measure before you cut

Before you start clipping your hair you should first decide how you want your haircut to look. Military haircut is the kind of hairstyle where you trim the sides and the back but keep the strip of hair on top, much like a mohawk but with the back trimmed.

With this in mind, you must first measure out how wide the top strip should be. If you want to go with the usual style, stop the short cut when your hair clippers slide off the edge of your head. If you want to go with a more radical look, then make the strip a bit narrower. In that case, just make sure that it’s properly centered and equally far from the short cut on both sides of your head.

After this, you can move on to the next step.

Second step: Start trimming your hair

Now it’s time for you to start clipping your hair. Choose a comb attachment of the appropriate length or set your hair clippers on your desired length, depending on which model you have, and trim your entire hair. You should use a length that you’d want for the top strip of hair. If you’re inexperienced with cutting your own hair, go with a bit longer length, so that you can easily cover up any potential mistakes you might accidentally end up making.

It’s much easier for you to first trim your entire hair first and then move on to shortening the sides and the back because you’ll be able to work with more precision that way.

Now let’s move on to the final part.

Final step: Finishing up the military haircut

Set the clipping length to the shortest possible – I highly recommend a pair of cordless balding clippers and get ready to start shaving the back and the sides. In order to keep everything evenly cut, the best way to go is to trim your hair in circular motion, clipping both sides and the back in one move. As you approach the top, be careful not to make any mistakes. Also make sure that you don’t accidentally fade the transition, the most important part of a military haircut is that clear difference between the lengths.

After you’ve finished trimming the back and the side, if you wish, you can go ahead and completely shave them off with a razor. This will make your haircut stand out more and look even cooler.

There you have it, now you know how to do a military cut in just three easy and simple steps. This hairstyle is great for men who want to look even more masculine and tough, but it’s also a very stylish one as well. If you want to, you can even grow out the top part to a very long length and then wear a Viking braid, it’s all up to you. At ease, soldier.

War times: a word about sewing machines

Operations of industrial sewing are carried out with number of sewing machines used specifically for a variety of fabrics, leather, fur and other synthetic materials.

These machines are used to make or repair garments and various other leather goods. Industrial sewing machines feature high quality stitching and one can choose high-end hardware for manufacturing on a larger scale. A large selection of leather sewing machines which are equipped with the latest technology and produce leather products quality of the highest quality are available.

Heavy duty leather sewing machines feature high quality straight stitching and can not only manufacture products that meet standards but also increase the firm’s productivity adding great impetus to the work processes.

A leather sewing machine follows an all together separate discipline and very few people are capable of mastering the art well, but individuals who wish to indulge in designing a saddles or leather accessories can definitely improve their skill as their work with the material progresses.

The main difference between leather sewing machines and other simple fabric sewing machines is that a special category of needles with a sharp eye is used to stitch the leather together.

Another pitfall that most of the normal fabric material machines suffer from is that they are unable to stitch leathers because most of these machines don’t support enough slip area under the pressure foot of the sewing machine. Another remarkable feature that leather sewing machines offer is that one can use the rotatory blade cutters included as a standard feature on most machines to get a better finish off the material by eliminating fringes and frayed edges.

Few of the important purposes that these leather machines fulfill is that they can be used for sewing shoes, sewing leather garments, in addition to being used for stitching leather belts and even handbags. Industrial machines like these can also be used for shoe repairing and cutting leather for use in apparel.

The operators of leather sewing machines must have some of the skills and abilities as working with leather involves a good amount of precision, as the material has to handled delicately. An individual working with these machines should have certain attributes that are considered important like past experience working with textiles and leathers for specific industries, good vision as well as hand-eye coordination. One should also attend the training courses required to help the individual become a master in that particular niche.

Leather sewing machine needles
Leather sewing machines require a specific category of needles, which can match the specific requirements and rigors for stitching leather. Generally these needles are quite sharp as compared to normal stitching needles and a good leather seeing needle gives a better finish to the leather product simply because of its ability to pierce leather easily and swiftly. These needles are also thicker than the normal needles and are made so they can sustain a higher degree of pressure, due to the hardness of the material being worked on and to obtain the desired quality level from this machine.

Leather Sewing Thread
A special category of thread is used to stitch the leather material. Normal cotton threads which are generally used to stitch fabrics are unsuitable when it comes to sewing up leather as they do not provide any strength to this heavy material. These threads are generally made of polyester or rayon blends. The quality of finished product also depends upon the type and thickness of the leather being used, as different sources of material offer different characteristics.

How to plan your military museum visit

If you are planning a visit to a military museum, there are some things which you need to know before taking off to the museum.

Take the time to check the museum’s website or social media page to ensure that it will be open for visitors at the time you plan on going. This will save a lot of time and effort and prevent the frustration of going to the museum and finding it closed.  If you can’t find a webpage or the working hours, you can call the museum to ask about the hours of operation.

The military museums you must visit if you are a fan of the history of military

Military Museums are not one of the most popular types of museums. They are traditionally visited by soldiers, scholars, and veterans, which is why some military museums have implemented new strategies to attract a wider audience to see their collections. Some museums are adding more dynamic displays and even theme park attractions in order to bring in more people with children and others who are not related to the military in any way.
