Rated  3.0 3 Star

He’s a heavy hitter in the ring, and no punching bag in the hair stakes either – but boxer Conor McGregor’s ever-changing barnet is currently in this quite classic crop with a subtle fade and quiff.

Why We Love It:

Boxer Conor McGregor’s classic crop with subtle fade and quiff is a knockout style for the man mountain who makes an appearance in the Road House remake. Playing, er, himself.

There are rumours he had a hair transplant a while back, but who cares – this style showcases a pretty fulsome barnet whether completely natural or not.

While MFH hasn’t unearthed any grooming secrets from the big man, there’s some intel on who is behind that iconic man bun that he was sporting in around 2014.

It was none other than Erin McGregor, his sister. Talking to the NZ Herald she said: “Everyone loves Conor’s hair and so many men want it. It’s great to be able to express my creativity through him.

“Conor is very stylish, always has been.”

And just like he’s unafraid of any opponent, Mr McGregor is no lightweight when it comes to hair experiments either – he’s had everything from buzz cuts and man buns with shaved sides, to a high skin fade on the back and sides with a hard side parting, and this severe crop to name a handful.

What a champ.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Conor McGregor’s crop with subtle fade and quiff is a great classic hairstyle.
  • The skill is all in getting that fade and shorter sides blended in with the rest of the hair.
  • Conor’s hair on top looks to be around 4 inches long.
  • Your barber/hairstylist might add in a little texture on the top to take weight from the hair and enable it to sit better and be styled more easily.
  • You’ll probably need a trim around every 6 weeks to keep the sides looking sharp.

Get The Look

  • Conor’s hair is relatively easy to style and doesn’t take too many products.
  • If you want a bit of Conor’s volume, use a volumising mousse on the roots of damp hair.
  • Spritz on some heat protector all over the top of the hair and part the hair on the side you prefer.
  • Then blow dry on medium heat, using a vent brush to lift the hair at the top and give it a bit of volume.
  • When it’s dry, rub a very minimal amount of styling paste like clay or pomade between your hands to warm it and make it easy to apply
  • Gently sweep the quiff slightly back using your fingers first, then perfecting it with your brush if need be.
  • Use the excess product left on your fingers through the sides of the hair to tame any flyaways.
