from Rome to France
What is a Caesar Cut?
The Caesar Cut is one of the oldest hairstyles around - originiated with, and you guessed it - Julius Caesar.
It is said that Julius Caesar was experiencing issues with receding hairline, and baldness, at the time, was considered a deformity in Rome.
To combat this, he combed what's left of his hair to his forehead, thus creating the iconic hairstyle.
A short length haircut - hair styled forward with a straight fringe that is horizontally cut.
The Caesar Cut is extremely low-maintenance.
Traditionally, Caesar Cut has uniform length on the top, back, and sides.
The hairstyle evolved as time progresses.
Later on, came the French Crop, often favoured by the High Fashion community.
The French Crop
Though similar, the French Crop and the Caesar Cut have their differences.
Caesar Cut often has a blunt fringe.
French Crop features a longer fringe, and the top is slightly more textured.
Both are great for straight, curly or wavy hair.
The fringe for the French Crop, can either be pushed to the front, for those who wish to balance their longer face shape, or styled across to a side part for a more timeless classic look.
This is a style that you don't want to look too polished.
Texturise it with wax while keeping the natural look and movement.
Feel free to experiment with the length and style of the top, as well as the back & sides.
Go for a shorter back & sides to increase the contrast and disconnection, giving the style a more contemporary look.
If you have softer, finer hair - maybe grow your back & sides out and ask your barber to texturise it.
Keep the top long and choppy
Go for a blunt fringe.
Make it an undercut
Yes, there are endless possibilities.
