Trend Report: The Crop

There’s no doubt that the biggest trend to hit the lady hair scene right this second is the crop (ie. cutting your hair short). But before you let Bingle, Richie or Sienna’s brand new locks talk you in to taking the plunge let senior stylist Annalise share some of her wisdom on whether this trend could work for you.

How does a lady know that they’re really ready to update their look?
The start of a new year is always a good time to make a hair change. Especially if you’ve had the same style and colour for a long time. It’s important to shake things up and although we’re here to help you stay on trend, communication is also key when talking about a major change. Don’t rush into it. Take the time to talk it over, bring in pictures and let your stylist help you find a version of short hair to suit you.

What face shapes will suit the crop?
The crop is actually a style that will suit almost anyone! Although people who have been blessed with an oval shaped head will be able to pull of this look the most. But they can pull off most looks.

Who shouldn’t cut their hair into a crop?
People who have short square shaped heads should probably steer clear from going too short, because the shorter you cut your hair the more it can accentuate your features. Also people who have really round shaped heads are probably better off going for a longer style like a lob (longer bob) if they want to stay on trend.

What does this year’s crop look like?
This year’s crop is  quite soft and feminine. It’s textured, a little broken but very natural looking. It’d be very easy for a lady to throw their own spin on it or even add a fringe for a sharper look. And because it’s unstructured it’s very easy to style.

The best products for this style?
Label M Texturising Volume Spray – This spray is a cross between dry shampoo and hairspray (the best of both worlds). Spray it close to the roots on dry hair and it will add volume, texture and even height to your finished look.

Shu Uemera Daily Style Refresher – This product is like a sea salt spray although will give you a much more natural finish. Spray it evenly through damp hair and blast it dry for soft tousled locks.
