And it's left many men thinking about buzzing their locks down to a short style too.
Even though Jarhead was released 13 years ago, it seems that one of the inspirations for a lot of men to go short is still the Jake Gyllenhaal Jarhead haircut.
But what is the Jarhead haircut and how can you ask your barber for it.
What Is The Jake Gyllenhaal Jarhead Haircut?
The Jake Gyllenhaal Jarhead haircut is a classic military high and tight. A lot of military haircuts in movies will be left unfaded, but the reason that this haircut looks even more wearable is the high fade added to the hair, which adds more style and definition to the cut.
