There’s just something about having short hair, isn’t there? It’s cute and sexy, easy to style, feels modern and cool. It’s everything – all in one go. If you (like us) love a short cut, you’ve probably tried a bob in your time – maybe you’ve added a fringe in too.
But if you’re in the mood for something different, with subtle layers that give you instant shape – with no blow drying at all – we think the New Crop is for you.
What is it?
The New Crop is boyish but feminine and has rock and roll vibes, but remains super wearable. We take the weight out of the ends to create effortless shape that brings out your cheekbones and eyes, but doesn't require endless styling. You can make it super sleek – or add tousle and texture. Either way, you just add a smoothing cream, air dry – and go.
The A-list references
The New Crop takes its boyish, rock and roll edge from Mick Jagger in the '70s. Models Linda Evangelista, Jacquetta Wheeler and Trish Goff made it feminine and sexy in the ‘90s. These days, we take our cue from the likes of Freja Beha Erichsen.
Who does it work on?
People often think that you need a very specific hair type or face shape to have short hair. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Taking weight out of long, heavy or shapeless hair and adding in some soft layers will lift your entire face and reboot your look overall.
The beauty of the New Crop is that we can add more ‘invisible layers’ to take the heaviness out of very thick hair. If yours is on the finer side, adding subtle layers from near the crown of the head to the tips will create the illusion of more fullness. The natural texture of curly hair means it's brilliant for anyone with curls too.
How does it work?
We create built-in shape by adding layers throughout, then use our signature ‘good split end’ technique to give soft, buttery tips, with easy movement around your face. The chunky, side-swept fringe adds a boyish touch that feels super fresh and modern – and of course, really accents your face and eyes.
What’s the best way to style it?
Just run a pump of Almost Everything Cream through the lengths and ends when your hair is soaking wet to prevent frizz from forming later. You could brush it to one side for a sleeker, boyish vibe. Or tousle it up for more of a relaxed finish. Either way, leave it to air dry and embrace your natural texture by leaving your styling tools aside.
