Crew Cut Requirements
** Hair should be buzzed tightly on the sides, starting at 1/16 inch (a "0" buzzer setting) at the neckline and ears.
** Just above the ears, hair should start fading to a longer length. (Graduate up a few clipper sizes to start. Blend the space between this longer length and the skin-tight clip.)
** Hair is at its longest on the top of the head (usually no longer than an inch) and should graduate in length from the crown to the hairline.
** If you prefer a buzz cut to a crew cut, have your barber cut all of your hair to one uniform lengthjust be sure its not longer than an inch.

How to Style a Crew Cut
Since this haircut is so short, styling is a simple matterwe recommend using some high-hold wax or texture paste to add separation and height. The hardest part is the long-term maintenance, as a haircut this short can lose its shape quickly, and you'll have to schedule frequent haircuts to help maintain the look. Try to book appointments with your barber every two to three weeks.
