A Crew Cut is a type of Haircut/ Hairstyle in which the upright hair on the top of the head is cut relatively short, graduated in length from the longest hair that forms a short pomp (pompadour) at the front hairline to the shortest at the back of the crown so that in side profile, the outline of the top hair approaches the horizontal. Relative to the front view, and to varying degrees, the outline of the top hair can be arched or flattened at the short pomp front and rounded or flattened over the rest of the top to complement the front hairline, head shape, face shape and facial features. The hair on the sides and back of the head is usually tapered short, semi-short, or medium. A short crew cut is sometimes referred to as a butch
The crew Cut is a classic men’s hairstyle, which is very popular in the military and in the sporting world, mainly due to its Practicality and Low-Maintenance. The name “Crew Cut” likely comes from “Ivy League Universities” adopting the hairstyles for their “crew” or, “rowing teams”, for maximum visibility while competing. (The so-called “Ivy League” hairstyle is very similar, but the hair is long enough on top to be combed on one side)
