Here is all you need to know about the crop haircut and how you can get your own version of this modern textured cropped hairstyle.
How To Get A Crop Haircut
What Is A Crop Haircut
The crop is a short textured haircut that can be worn in a few different ways.
Often paired with a fade on the back and sides and worn with a blunt fringe, the crop top can work with anywhere from a short fringe cut towards the hairline or a longer fringe down on the forehead.
The longer fringe works well for gents with thicker hair and strong jawlines, and the shorter fringe can work for most men with thin to thick hair. Although typically seen on thicker hair, it actually works really well for receding hair, as the fringe can be tailored to your hairline meaning that the receding will not be as obvious as if you were to wear the hair pushed back.
How To Ask Your Barber For A Crop Top Haircut
Most barbers will be aware of a crop haircut in 2019, so you should just be able to ask for a textured crop. But with so many haircuts now around and all haircuts taking on different meanings a lot of the time, it's best to take a few pictures of the style of crop haircuts you like. This way you and your barber are on the same page!
The most important part of this haircut is the texture. You want to get your barber to add loads of varying texture throughout, making this much easier for you to style at home, and giving you the ultimate textured crop look.
You'll want anywhere between around 1-3 inches on top, depending on how long you're planning on keep the fringe and where you want it cropped. And then it's up to you how short you want to go on the back and sides.
A lot of modern crops go down to a low-mid skin fade keeping the haircut looking softer and not too harsh, but this will all be dependent on your preference. Work with your barber to find a variation that suits your hair, face shape and needs.
Styling A Textured Crop Hairstyle
To style a textured crop haircut you want a product that adds plenty of texture and gives a natural finish. Use a matte finish product like the Regal Gentleman Matte Clay to finish.
Blow dry the hair into shape on a medium heat and low speed using just your fingers to add texture throughout. Then once dry work a tiny bit of matte clay through the hair from back to front, getting the product all the way through the hair. Once in shape just finish with the matte clay remaining on your hands to give you some extra hold. It's a very simple haircut to style with no real needs for brushes or combs!
