What Is A French Crop?

The French crop haircut usually features very short sides and back and a long top. The style of the cropped hair on the sides can vary. It can be faded, tapered or undercut. In its turn, the top incorporates a blunt fringe, which is cut so that it could be styled forward. You can play around with the length of the top, as the haircut doesn’t have any specific requirements for that.

What Do I Need For The French Crop?

What makes the French crop haircut so popular is that being a short hairstyle, it doesn’t require you to have much hair on the head to pull it off. Moreover, this is the perfect cut to disguise a receding hairline if you happen to have one. The top is usually cut from 1 to 2 inches long while the rest of the hair is even shorter. Besides, this cropped haircut is extremely versatile. Most face shapes and hair types will find it very flattering. Though, guys with round faces should be really careful with it, as the unsuitable style of the French top can make such a face shape even rounder. Notably, if your hair is kinky, it only means that you’ll have to spend just a bit more time on styling your new textured haircut.

How To Get The French Crop Haircut

In case you’re still not sure that your barber will get you right when you ask him/her for a French crop, give them the cue. Tell the barber to cut or clip your sides, which will depend on the desired texture. You can also choose a French crop fade or a French crop undercut. If you can’t decide between the two, you can even opt for a mix of both. The top hair can be cut in two ways. For more voluminous and textured appearance, the barber should point cut your hair, whereas, for a more dapper look, you will want him/her to give you a blunt cut.

How To Style The French Crop

Because there isn’t much hair to style, even the textured French crop is considered a low-maintenance haircut. You’ll simply need to apply some of the styling product, such as a wax, pomade or gel, to your still wet after the shower hair and mold a textured crop or whatever style you choose.

The French crop is the type of fringe haircut men find extremely beneficial. Along with minimal styling and maintenance, it offers you a multitude of different styling options. You can pair a textured fringe with short cropped hair or get a close cropped haircut on the sides and match it with the side-parted top.

There are also various ways how to style your hair on top. The possibilities are infinite. If you’re lacking the imagination, check out our selective gallery of the best French crop haircuts, including a crop top fade, disconnected French crop and many more.
