About Crop Hairstyles, Corinne asks:

I’ve heard the name, “crop haircut,” as a name of new short hair styles that are cute, quick and easy. I remember this name for short hair styles back in the 80’s. Who wore the crop haircut back in the 80’s?  Who is wearing these new short crop hairstyles now?,,

The most famous celebrity that comes to mind, who wore crop hairstyles new short hair styles some 20 plus years ago, is Princess Dianna. Princess Di developed an impeccable style, of which her hair, of course, played a big part.

What defines crop hairstyles is one that heavier layered on top and tapers short on the sides and back. Like any new short hair style that makes a return debut like the shag or the bob, when it does return for a new run, the designing hairdresser will give it a new signature.

Rihanna’s new short hair style is a crop hairstyle and was voted the winner of “Best New Short Hair Styles,” by Elle magazine. Rihanna started a new short hair style trend for the popular short crop hairstyle, that has proven the test of time. Quick and easy to style, makes it even more desirable to fashionistas and women who don’t have the time to putz with styling their hair every day. What’s not to like? Use a flat iron to direct the fringe forward with a deep side part. Finish with a texturizing balm like, Aveda Control Paste, to add piecey spikes.

New Short Hair Styles
Agyness Deyn’s “Aggy” cut is a crop hairstyle

Super model Agyness Deyn wears crop hair styles so well, this hair style was also in hair styling circles as the ‘Aggy” hair style. With her platinum hair color and highly texturized layers, Agyness Deyn’s crop hair style cut gets another signature of its own. To style, work in a mouse and simply brush forward from the crown giving the fringe a side-swept direction without showing a part. Shine it up with a product like, Paul Mitchell Shine Drops for extra bling!

Crop Haircut
Victoria Beckman’s pixie cut or crop hair style

I call this a pixie haircut, which also has been around forever . . . remember Mia Farrow, in Rosemary’s Baby, but some call this a crop hairstyle as well. Never-the-less it fits the category of a short-n-easy hair style.

“Crop Hairstyles
are Back”
This sort of short hair style doesn’t work for everyone. It looks fabulous on Victoria Beckham. It was a great new short hairstyle to move into after her famous ‘inverted bob short haircut.’  It looks best on women who have a petite bone structure and who have a good sense of self. Small, well proportioned features get a big boost with this short hair style.

But if you are on the shy side, this hair style isn’t for you. Hair this short can make you feel ‘exposed’ and leave you feeling wide open for scrutiny.

Cute Crop Hair Cuts

Three Cool Crop Hair Cuts


The above cropped hair has long, asymmetrical fringe and an undercut short side moving around your ear are your ticket to instant chic! Hair is just long enough to lift at the roots with a small round brush. Style the heavy side with texture spray and finger-ruffle as you dry, then add volume with a large round brush.

Show off natural curl by letting it go wild. The back is shorter and rounded while side pieces are left longer so they frame your face. To style, work in a curl-booster and diffuse-dry as you finger-twirl tendrils.

The front is all side-swept bangs with soft sideburns; all it needs is a quick brush-through. The crown has tons of short layers that let you gain volume fast by blow-drying it with a round brush. The tapered nape brings it all together.

Crop Hairstyle Magic How To

  • THE CUT  ~~ By combining a smooth, short perimeter and a longer permed interior, Helen Forlani-Pollari transforms somewhat fine hair into a super crop hairstyle statement. The entire perimeter, which is left unpermed, is cut to curve along the neckline and ends in soft side wisps. The interior, from the layered bangs to the center back, is left longer and unblended. Then it’s permed for maximum root lift and ample end curl.

  • THE COLOR  ~~ Always pair permed hair with a safer, semi-permanent hair color. Here, hair in front gets a slightly lighter shade added to woven highlights. It looks just like the sun did it!

  • HOW TO STYLE IT  ~~ Work mousse through from roots to ends, then comb down the nape and fringe. Mist curl-rejuvenator onto the permed hair and scrunch locks as you diffuse-dry. Touch up individual pieces with a round brush, adding root lift and direction in front. Curve part of the fringe down to create partial bangs.
