Kingsley Ben-Adir: Afro French Crop With Low Fade

Rated  3.0 3 Star

He’s one of the many Ken dolls in the new Barbie film, but Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Afro French crop with low fade is all his own work.

And MFH loves the dash of salt and pepper, too, and that lush beard.

Why We Love It:

Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Afro French crop with low fade shows that you can get that fringed, French crop look, even with naturally course, curly hair.

And it looks so sharp, it could cut you.

Though MFH likes his low fade when it’s less severe (aka in the photo of him with sunglasses).

Because it’s such a precise haircut, a little bit of softness goes a long way to making it more flattering.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Afro French crop with low fade is a precise cut, so be prepared to visit your barber on the regular.
  • This hairstyle is especially good if you have Afro, kinky or unruly hair because the short, sharp cut is easier to look after and keep in shape.
  • The line up is shaped like the fringe on a French crop (which is sometimes referred to as a shape up) means the hairline is precision cut with an unguarded blade for that super sharp look
  • Be warned, though, that this style will lose its sharpness quickly so it’s expect to be in the barber’s chair at least weekly or fortnightly at most.

Get The Look

  • Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Afro French crop with low fade might be short, but Afro hair needs lots of TLC.
  • Wash with natural shampoos and conditioners.
  • You’ll also need to regularly use scalp oil to ensure that area is protected so that any new hair growing through has a good chance of being strong and healthy.
  • Try not to wash it more than once a week if you can.
  • Use a nourishing deep-conditioning treatment once a week, too.
