Robert Downey Jr: Dyed Crew Cut With Low Fade

Rated  3.0 3 Star

Never before have there been so many haircuts on the big screen we love at the same time – including Oppenheimer star Robert Downey Jr’s dyed crew cut with low fade.

All Hairstyles

Why We Love It:

Before Robert Downey Jr grew out his barnet into this dyed crew cut with low fade, Mr DJ allowed his kids to shave his hair off.

(It was for a role FYI).

But now the star has become bored with (nearly) bald and grown it out into this fun, textured short hairstyle.

Which he has also dyed dark brown – something MFH is less of a fan of.

Why? RDJ would totally rock the salt’n’pepper vibe. And it’d suit him way more than this artificial chestnut…



What To Ask Your Barber:

  • After Robert Downey Jr’s dyed crew cut with low fade ?
  • The hair is longest on the top of the head – Robert’s hair looks to be around half an inch – and is graduated in length from the crown to the hairline.
  • The hair at the back and sides is tapered to be slightly shorter than the hair on top.
  • Ask for a low fade to be done with a small section around the ears, to streamline the cut.
  • Or you could go for a more extreme fade – but that’s something to discuss with your hairstylist.

Get The Look

  • Robert Downey Jr’s dyed crew cut with low fade is a wash and go, look if you’re time poor.
  • Or you can play with the texture a little like Robert.
  • If you’re all about texture, spritz a texture volume spray from roots to ends on damp hair.
  • Then use a small amount (no bigger than a pea intially) of firm hold wax, clay or pomade when the hair is dry.
  • Warm it between your fingers first, then tousle your hair with it.
  • And push the hair upwards with the wax to give it a bit of lift at the front like Robert’s.
