The Caesar haircut is a men’s haircut that has a horizontally-cut short fringe styled forward. Named after the historically famous Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, its sometimes referred to as a French crop, too.
The traditional Caesar cut was worn by men who experienced early-onset baldness or hair thinning. Although, in the modern world this cut can be seen infused with various styles, shapes, and textures. It’s still recommended for guys who have thin hair, especially now that contemporary versions of this cut are styled to be more textured and faded.
No touch-ups and only a little maintenance and styling are needed for this emperor French crop. No wonder why leading Hollywood movie actors Zac Efron, George Clooney, and Russell Crowe have been sporting this classic hairstyle on and off the set!

In this cut, Saim used all Paul Mitchell products, ending with Super Sculpt and with a Reformer wax. It’s also used on men who have straight hair with not much volume, but it’s very interesting in curly hair too when the bunch is more open to not get heavy.

To have this long Caesar hairstyle means you like looking shaggy and clean at the same time. What’s great about it will have to be that it’s nearly effortless as far as styling, depending on the kind of texture your hair has.

Samano adds, “With the crop, you can just run over the hair with some paste or matte product to keep it down.” If needed, you can leave a little more hair at the crown or down by the nape (occipital bone). The fade can be adjusted by your barber, too.

According to Regan, the reason why the fringe is left nice and long is to complement the face shape. “If I cut it really short, it would have made the face look really long,” Regan states.
