low reg - what is a low reg in military

Low Reg

A haircut that rides the line of being in regulation. It still goes to the skin for about half an inch but then quickly fades into a normal haircut, but still checks the box for having a haircut. Utilized to show a complete lack of any motivation and in hopes to blend in as a civilian. Pro tip: everyone still knows you’re in the military. They just think you have a really shitty haircut.

After his NJP, he went from a high and tight straight to a low reg and you could see the fucks leave his soul as all motivation vanished.
