Easy Crew Cut Ideas for Men

Check out stylish ways to rock this haircut.

A crew cut is one of the most popular haircuts for men. It has short hair on the sides and back of the head. The top section is short as well, but it’s slightly longer than the sides. Thanks to its length, the crew cut is a low-maintenance haircut, making it an excellent choice for those who want a stylish but practical look.

This haircut suits various face shapes and can be paired with other men’s hair trends. You can combine a crew cut with a fade or give it a messy, textured look. We’ve rounded up hairstyling ideas to help you rock the crew cut once you get it. Check them out.

Crew Cut Pegs to Inspire You

1. Brushed-Up Crew Cut

This hairstyle gets hair off your face and gives your hair the illusion of volume. It’s simple but versatile—you can wear it at work or when meeting your friends for drinks.

To style your hair this way, get a small, fine-tooth comb and brush your hair upward, away from your face. Then, apply matte putty on your hair to keep it in place.

CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men

Editor’s tip: Don’t let flakes put a damper on your style. Use CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It has Triple Anti-Dandruff Technology, which removes, resists, and prevents dandruff. It also has mint that leaves a cool and fresh feeling on your scalp.

3. Comb-Over Hairstyle

Try this classic hairstyle for men on your crew cut. To do this, comb the top section of your hair to one side and apply pomade to make it sleek and shiny. Go for the comb-over hairstyle when your hair starts growing and the top section becomes longer than usual.

4. Side-Parted

The side-parted ‘do is another hairstyle that complements a crew cut with a longer-than-usual top. It’s a notch down from the sleek and dapper look of a comb-over, making it a good choice for a clean and casual look.

5. Short Pompadour

Got short, thick hair? Try the short pompadour hairstyle. It has the pompadour’s signature height and voluminous top but is more toned down. And on a crew cut, this hairstyle looks less retro and more modern—something you can rock from day to night.
