means it's a little longer on the sides than the very top of the head, with everything combed straight up (and usually stiffened with product). The result is, as the name implies, a flat horizontal plane all the way across the top of the head. Some styles will round it out a bit around the edges, while others go for as sharp and boxy a shape as possible. Flat tops are a fairly casual style. You'll see them on entertainers and celebrities from time to time, as well as athletes.
Medium-Length Cuts Bowl Cut An even-length style where the hair is left long on the top of the head, and then cut off at the same height all the way around the head, generally at about eye-level. The result is a "bowl" of hair on top of the head, falling to the same height all the way around. Because the style is so easy to do (simply cut at the same height all the way around the head), it's associated with home haircuts, and often with small children who got their bowl cuts from their

It's longest right in the middle of the neck, and sweeps up a bit to the sides. It's a little less chunky-looking that the blocked style, but otherwise about the same. A tapered neckline uses the trimmers

You might not be able to get away with it in very conservative business settings, but most places will accept it so long as it's neatly trimmed. It is, however, easy for a beard of this size to start getting out of hand, and you can move into lumberjack territory very quickly if you're not careful. Keep it trimmed, either with an electric razor or small scissors, or by passing a safety razor a few inches from the skin.
