Crop Haircuts For Men

By Matt V


Have you heard of the crop haircut? It can also be called a French crop, textured crop, crop fade, crop chop, and many more. As all of the names indicate, it’s a men’s short hairstyle with plenty of personality.

The features of a crop are texture, some type of fringe, and faded sides. This cool men’s haircut can be very short, longer, or thicker. The fringe can be a blunt Caesar-type fringe high on the forehead or some combination of textured, spiky, and longer.

The many variations of this haircut make it work for all hair types, taming thick and coarse hair and conversely, helping thin and fine hair appear thicker with added volume and texture. It is naturally suited to wavy and curly hair. And of course, works for stylish lads of all ages.

We’ve talked about this popular look as European hair trends and new men’s hairstyles and more. This is the definitive crop post with 35 different looks for men, boys, and curly hair.
