Textured Hairstyle For Men

What is the textured crop hairstyle for men?

The textured crop has roots in Europe and dates back as far as the Roman Caesars, hence you’ll sometimes hear the term ‘Caesar Cut’. This is a textured crop with a short fringe. A ‘French Crop’ on the other hand is a textured crop with a long fringe. At the core the hairstyle is a short textured haircut that is often paired with a fade or tapered sides. It is kind of hard to believe that a two thousand year old hairstyle is trending, but that is exactly where we find ourselves in the twenty twenties.

What to ask your barber for when choosing this hairstyle?

To get a textured crop hairstyle you need to ask your barber for exactly that ‘a textured crop’, don’t get lost in all the various other names that the hairstyle has. It may help to explain to the barber how you want to wear the style and how you’d like the fringe, back and sides cut. A photo always takes the guess work out of it, so if you find an image of the textured crop you’d like, bring it along to the barbershop and ask the barber if the style is achievable with your hair.
