Men’s Crop Haircut

A few reasons we are living for this men’s crop haircut? It’s well-suited for different hair types, the strong texture and rounded finish gives off an edgy yet sophisticated vibe and it’s easy for clients to style at home—with the right products, of course! That’s why we snagged the full how-to, so keep scrollin to see American Crew Global Artistic Director Paul Wilson (@paulwilsoncrew) break down the technique step by step! 

 

‘The Crop’ is one of the standout haircuts of American Crew’s THE CREW STYLE MAKERS campaign—a compilation of grooming techniques and current men’s hair trends—to serve as inspiration for both stylists and clients. The purpose is to showcase the diverse possibilities clients have when choosing a haircut and overall style, and the campaign (a short-form video and book) is a tool for stylists to use in consultations. Other standout stylists include ‘The Taper’ and ‘The University.’ For more information, TAP HERE!
