Reader JL sends us to this page and tells me that the official name for my haircut is a “buzz cut.” Sweet. Thanks JL.

Here’s a passage:

A buzz cut (wiffle and crew cut are more or less synonymous terms) is the American name for a type of haircut named after the sound of the electric clippers which are used to shear the hair very closely to the scalp. It is one of the most rapid haircuts possible, and can take little more than a minute to cut when done with good quality clippers. A buzz cut also makes the face look more defined and the jaw wider.

I didn’t realize that the definitions for haircuts could be so interesting.
