Matthew: French Crop – Short Thick Haircut and Style

4.0 4 Star

Guys with coarse and thick hair, this one’s for you! This short men’s haircut is low maintenance and easy to style yourself at home.

MFH says

Matt came into Ruffians in Edinburgh for a cut with Craig. He wanted a style that was contemporary but not the usual hard fade that we see on so many guys with short hair.

This is a great hairstyle for anyone with thick, coarse hair. You’ll see that by just shaping and defining the length, Matt’s hairstyle has been instantly – and easily – elevated.
