In today’s post I present you “The French Crop” , this is a, in my opinion, classic spring / summer hairstyle. This is based entirely on the motto: “Less is more”, because the French Crop can cut and style without much effort, but this looks good.
But what is the French Crop? In this case, the hair in the neck area and on the sides are cut short, on top of the hair is left a little longer. Now you have the opportunity to comb the hair either forward, in the direction of the forehead or to style it laterally.
Personally, I prefer the variant with the side styling, just looks a bit looser. But do not worry, here are some styles of the French Crop that you can be inspired by. And if you do not like it, look at these hairstyles for men .
The classic French Crop
The classic French Crop is about finding the right balance and proportion from the side and the hair in the neck area to the hair on top. It is important that the hairdresser of your confidence works out clear edges between the transitions. However, these should not be too noticeable, I think that the following photos help you better understand what is meant by these transitions.
The hair on the top can be cut in different ways and thus set in scene. For a slightly rougher look, especially for men with lots of hair, it’s best to thin out the hair to achieve a kind of sawtooth effect. Say the barber makes sure to bring longer and shorter games on top to bring just the previously mentioned sawtooth similar patterns to achieve.
Alternatively, one can simply cut the hair on the top in one length. This results in a consistent appearance, which can be completely styled and not highlights individual strands of hair, as is the case with the previous cut. But enough of the words, below a few photos of the classic French crop.
May it be a little bit longer …
As already indicated, there is not only the one, classic variant of the French Crop. The second variant is that you wear the hair on top a little longer. This gives you more options when styling, which are rather not possible with a short cut.
So this extra length allows you to bring in great and side vertexes or a decomposed, structured look, which has a completely different effect due to the abundance of more hair. The only important thing here is that the ratio of the side and neck hair to the hair remains at the top. If this is not the case, the hairstyle can no longer work properly.
The French Crop in 2015
The French Crop in the style of the current year differs slightly from the two previously presented variants. Although I can say for my part right away that I like the first variant, the classic French crop, the best. You can make your judgment right after the presentation of the French Crop in 2015.
The French crop in 2015 is radical, that is the hair on the neck and on the sides are cut very short, so short that you can already partially see through the scalp. On top of the hair are kept relatively long. Thus, the previously mentioned balance and proportion comes a little out of balance. All in all, you recognize the French crop as such nevertheless.
My opinion about the French Crop
As already written in the previous paragraph, I personally like the classic version of the French Crop best, but I can also make friends with a little longer top coat. But cutting the side and neck hair so short that you can see the scalp does not necessarily match my taste.
The French Crop is a hairstyle in my opinion, which fits to any head shape, because you can adjust the cut without any problems on this. The comparison with a classic, white shirt and a simple leather jacket is quite appropriate at the French Crop, because all three are classics, timeless, adaptable and yet very stylish. Or what do you mean?
