How to Work the Crop Haircut

It may be too early to start spring cleaning your apartment, but starting anew with your haircut is right on trend. The crop haircut is back, and it’s shorter than ever. The crop popped up on the spring runways of designers like Burberry and Dolce & Gabanna. It’s a less is more spin on the 2008 long pixie cut (think Rihanna and Agyness Deyn), 2011’s crop has shorter bangs. Look to these leading ladies for perspective on how this cut can work for you.

Emma Watson

Watson is a frontrunner in this trend. She chopped off her required Hermione-length hair after wrapping the final instalment of the Harry Potter series last summer. This is a bold look “ try out Watson’s style if you’re craving a change.

Carey Mulligan

Although Mulligan has publicly admitted she hates her hair, it’s a versatile style to embody for this trend. Mulligan has been rocking a crop for over a year after the dye used on her hair for filming Public Enemies fried it. The light, uneven layers and mussed fringe is a great option for wavy or textured hair.

Michelle Williams

Williams lopped off her locks last spring to positive reviews. This look is a bit of a throwback to the 2008 pixie, with longer bangs, and looks great on people with fine to medium straight hair. She’s since switched to a shorter on-trend crop (similar to Mulligan’s), but this is a great option if you’re not fully on board with the short bangs.

Ginnifer Goodwin

Goodwin has lots of natural curl in her hair and her crop lets her natural texture shine through. It’s close-cropped on the sides, but just long enough on the top and crown to give her cut some volume.
