Raise Your Masculinity To The Highest Level With The Crew Cut

The crew cut is a perfect mix of traditional and modern vibes. In the distant past, it was mainly preferred by the military men; however, nowadays, it has become a widespread hairstyle among the civilians. The main reason for such a shift is its exquisite simplicity and low maintenance. On top of that, the crew cut has dozens of different variations. You can experiment with the length of the hair on top or go with a taper fade, you can wear it single or pair it with a beard. Whatever your choice is, we’re sure it’s going to be splendid as you’ve already chosen to have the crew cut.

What Is A Crew Cut

When you ask your barber for some crew cut haircuts, he or she will cut the top hair quite short, making it of different length so that it will be the longest at the forehead, creating a small pompadour, and the shortest at the nape. Thus, when the hair on the top of the head is viewed from the side, it gives the impression of being horizontal. The barber will also be able to experiment with the pomp, making the forehead area flattened or arched and the rest of the pompadour flattened or rounded, which depends on the head and face shape as well as your other features. The side hair will be simply cut medium, semi-short or short.

How To Get A Crew Cut

Before cutting the hair, the first decision you should make is how short you want the hair on the top of your head to be. It’s so important because if you leave it too long, there’s a risk to get another haircut, not a crewcut. The crew cut haircut implies having a pomp not longer than 1-2 inches. This decision influences whether you’re going to cut off or trim off your hair. For the hair on the sides, take the clippers with a guard size between #2 and #4. The sideburns are totally optional and their presence depends on your preferences. The top hair should be tapered down starting from the back and moving to the front. And finally, everything that is left should be faded downwards.

Crew Cut Tips

Do you want some ploys to create the crew cuts that make the heads turn? Here you go:

  1. Get your neckline tapered off. This will make your look much neater and fresher.
  2. To intensify the tidiness of your hairstyle, avoid wearing a beard and long sideburns.
  3. If you want your crew haircut to appear less rigid, leave your hair on top a little longer and give it a disheveled look.
  4. Keep in mind that the length of the hair is directly proportional to the ease of styling as well as the complexity of maintenance.

How To Style A Crew Cut

Talking about styling, the crucial thing you need to take care of is a nice hair styling product. We highly recommend opting for some wax or pomade. For a neat, glossy and polished look, take shiny pomade with a medium or strong hold. To accentuate the natural texture of your hair, employ the product with low or without any sheen; this will give your crew cut hairstyles a matte look. If you don’t want your hair to look clumpy, it’s better not to use gel. And if your hair is thin or thinning, just forget about gelling it! Actually, you can easily give up on the hair styling products at all because your haircut is so short that it basically looks coiffured by default. Simply, apply some hair wax to your hair and leave it tousled as it is.
