Afro Box Cut Flat Top Fade

4.0 4 Star

A precise box cut looks amazing on Afro hair and looks as cool now as it did way back when.

MFH says

Personally we think the flat top has stood the test of time. It reminds us of Will Smith in the early days of Fresh Prince of Bel Air and it still looks as fresh today as it did then.

To keep medium to long Afro hair in good condition, we recommend investing in some quality hair treatments.

  • To get an Afro box cut you’ll want to ask your barber for a Grade 1 on the sides, a boxed top and a shape up with a cut throat razor.
  • The top cut is usually done with freehand clippers and the shape is softened with scissors.
  • You have the choice of having a medium, high or skin fade on the sides so be sure to know what you want.
  • Your Afro box cut will need regular maintenance from your barber. You’ll want to be getting a cut every 4 weeks to keep it looking sharp.
  • Invest in a hair pick and use it to comb hair upwards and outwards to maintain the shape of your box cut / flat top.
  • Then smooth into shape with your palms and a dab of matte paste. Go steady as you want hair to have hold, but not be stuff.
