Featured Style: Textured Crop with Skin Fade

Crops are without a doubt one of the most popular styles in Europe at the moment with their influence slowing broadening to the United States and Australia.

There’s a lot to like about Crops – they are relatively low maintenance and are super easy to style, making recreating the fresh from the barbershop simple.

Crops are as varied as they come when it comes to men’s hairstyles. There are lots of varieties, from long to short or blunt to textured, there are no real boundaries or rules when it comes to this modern style.

This cut, by Jonny Simes of Smart Barbers, is a great example of a crop with a longer fringe, plenty of texture, and a super tight skin fade.

Textured Crop with Skin Fade

Jonny has opted for Styling Powder to emphasize the natural movement of the hair while leaving a natural finish.

Recreating this style at home is quick and easy.

Of course, always start with freshly washed hair if you want the best results. We recommend a full wash cycle using Uppercut Deluxe Shampoo and Conditioner.

Next, take a towel and thoroughly dry your hair. The drier your hair is before applying a styling product, the drier the result will be.

Once your hair is dry, generously sprinkle Styling Powder onto the hair, ensuring all areas are lightly covered. Use your fingers like a rake, moving them from side to side to agitate the product.

Finally, perfect the look by picking and pinching at sections to emphasize texture. And there you have it, a perfect Textured Crop.
