The crew cut is a men’s hairstyle which has been popular for decades and looks likely to remain a fashionable option for decades to come. One of the reasons for its popularity is that it is a low maintenance style which doesn’t come with any additional costs. If you like to keep your hairstyle relatively short, then this might be the best men’s haircut for you.
The Best Crew Cuts for you to try
These crew cut styles are all really easy to try, so you can keep trying out new ones until you find a style that looks great on you. Alternatively, change your style every single day for a little bit of variety. Reinventing your hairstyle regularly will help to keep people interested in you. A simple crew cut can be styled in thousands of different ways!
#1: Short Sides with Tousled Top
Keep the sides of your hair short but add length across the whole width of your head. Run your fingers through it from the front to give it a tousled look.
#2: Mid-length Crew Cut
A mid-length hair cut is a classic look. It is a simple, no-nonsense style which works well on almost any man!
#3: Side-Swept Tousled Crew
For a side-swept crew cut look, you will need to have some length on the top of your style. Run product through your hair sweeping it from left to right.
#4: Spiked Crew Cut
To create defined spikes you will need to put product in your hair and then run a comb straight upwards through your hair from the roots.
Having highlights put on the tips of your hair can help to give the impression of thicker hair with more texture. Choose a color which complements your natural hair color for as unbleached surf look.
#6: Fluffy Spikes
Fluffy spikes can look less aggressive than well-defined spikes do. If you have a fluffy style, you will find that people just want to run their hands through it all day!
#7: Widow’s Peak
If you do not have a naturally straight hairline, then a crew cut could be a great choice for your style. Keeping your hair shorter means that your hairline works with the style, rather than against it.
For a really striking crew cut style, you should keep the sides closely shaved, whilst allowing the hair in the center of your head to grow into a thick and voluminous style.
#9: Micro flick
If you have had a relatively short cut, you can style in a very short hair flick at the front. This gives your style a subtle hint of a difference without doing anything too extravagant.
#10: Stubbly sides with a stubbly beard
Keep the top of your hair longer and thicker whilst using a beard trimmer to shave the hair at the sides. Keep your beard the same length so that your hair and your beard segue effortlessly into one another.
#11: Center Only Cut
Shave your hair so that you only have thick hair on the very top of your head. The rest of your style should be only stubble. This looks great when it is teamed up with a stubbly beard too.
#12: Lightly Curled Crew
A crew cut is a great style for anyone with slightly curly hair. This type of style makes the curls more manageable but still allows you to show off your natural style.
#13: Thick and Luscious with a Light Beard
People will just love to run their fingers through this thick and luscious longer crew cut. The style works really well when teamed with a beard because it shows both softness and masculinity.
#14: Textured Fluffy Crew cut
Run your fingers upwards through your hair to give it this uninteresting fluffy texture. You can enhance the texture of a fluffy men’s hairstyle by having highlights and low lights put into your hair.
#15: Long and Tousled with Highlights and Low lights
This cut is on the long side for a crew cut but still looks fabulous. Putting in highlights and low lights will help to give your hair more texture.
#16: Long and Spiky
Any length of hair can be transformed into spiky hair if you have enough setting product. Once you have put product in your hair, run a comb from the roots to the tips.
#17: Hair Raising
If you have thick and luscious hair, you can create this style by warming a little hair gel on your hands and then running your fingers upwards and over. Style in the formation that best suits your face.
#18: Mid-short cut with a beard
Use a shaver to cut your hair to the desired length. Set your beard trimmer to the same cut length for an all-over great look.
#19: Colored Tips
Colouring the tips of your hair was a very popular style in the past and it is now coming back into fashion. Coloured tips help to give spikes more definition and make your hair look thicker.
#20: Long top with Tapered Sides
Leave the top of your crew cut style long and then make your sides gradually shorter and shorter. This style is great for the office.
#21: Mohawk Lite
A Mohawk lite is a crew cut crossed with a Mohawk. Keep your hair very short at the sides, and then have a longer strip down the middle of your scalp.
#22: Wiry Spikes
If your natural hair is made up of thick wiry strands it may form into natural wiry spikes until it reaches a certain length. Keep your hair short enough for it to do this and you will have effortless spiky hair.
#23: Short Cut
This short cut really shows off the shape of your head. A short cut looks great with a beard or it looks good with a clean shaven face.
#24: Soft and Textured
A soft and texture short cut is a great choice for people who do not want longer hair, but who are concerned about looking too “hard” with a very close cut.
#25: Soft Spikes with Tapered Sides
Gain extra height with your style by building up soft spikes. Tapered sides to your look will give you a really trendy style.
