Looking for a low-maintenance style for the new year? The cropped buzz cut is a trend that every guy can get on board with. But don’t be fooled—this angular style isn’t your average buzzed look. Read on to find out how to sport this trend in 2018.

Texture, texture, texture!

Unlike traditional buzz cuts, this style offers more variety when styling thanks to a bit of natural texture and movement. When requesting the look, make sure your stylist adds texture within the cut to give you more hair to work with.

Clay all the way

When it comes to styling the cut, opt for clay-based products for maximum control. Unlike traditional pomades, clay-based products leave hair touchable while still providing high hold. The American Crew Molding Clay can be easily manipulated to achieve any style on shorter strands.

Dress it up…or down

The best part about this on-trend cut? It offers an effortless, masculine appeal that works for both casual days and formal events. Pair the tousled style with a sleek suit for a polished look, or sport with a comfy bomber jacket and jeans for a cool, laid-back ensemble for any occasion.

If you’re not sure about the best cut for your texture, speak with your stylist or barber – they know your hair the best. For more helpful styling tips and tricks be sure to stalk American Crew on Bangstyle and check out their latest techniques on Instagram @AmericanCrew.
