32 Phenomenal Crop Top Fade Styles
Picking the right style for your hair is a gruesome process. Especially when you have hundreds of options in front of you and need to select only one from them, it becomes a painful experience.
We understand this situation well. We are not letting you scroll through those hundreds of options. Instead, we have selected only the best 32 variations of Crop Top Fade for you to choose from in this section. You can easily go through each style and pick the one you vibe with.
The Temple Fade is an excellent choice for a Crop Top Fade style. Only the temple area of the head has the fade, and the top hair rocks some amazing textured hair. If your hair is naturally coarse, you can style your front to have spiky fringes easily.
This Temple Fade Crop Top variation also suits those who like minimal looks. Since only the temple areas are faded for it, the look is much more suitable for any occasion you can think of.
In case the previous style seemed too dull for you, this Shaved Crop look will knock you out with its bold appearance. It is a more extreme version of the Temple Fade. The sides are entirely shaved for this style. And the shaved area takes a nosedive and creates a flipped crescent shape as it reaches the back. It follows the Drop Fade approach for the area but instead of getting fades, the area is shaved.
The top hair has the standard texture of a Crop Top style. Depending on your preference, you can rock lengthy fringes at the front. You will turn your Shaved Crop into a French Crop Top in that case. This combination is also popular at the moment.
French Crop Top
While both Crop and French Crop have textured hair with fringes in their requirements, the length of the fringes determines which one it is. In this variation, you can see a French Crop Top Fade style. The French version of the Crop houses longer fringes for a different look.
The top hair has medium textures to go with the long fringes. The back of the head is trimmed down according to the length of hair you have at the top. And finally, a smooth blending of all sides is necessary to pull off this French Crop Top beauty.
Easy Burst Fade
Burst Fade haircuts have attractive properties that can enhance any hairstyle. Take this Crop Top variation for example. The curvy line around the ears is followed for the Burst Fade which gives a sound contrast to the top hair.
To maintain the sharpness of this Easy Burst Fade Crop Top, the hair at the back can have a sharp ending as well. While the Burst can almost reach the back of your head, the strong horizontal finishing of the back hair gives the Burst a much-needed lift to appear more intriguing.
This Crop Top Fade variation comes with medium hair and some attractive mid-textures. These textures give the top hair a lucrative fluffy look. Also, the room is there to play with the length of the hair at the front. You can wear a French Crop style by keeping the fringes long.
To accompany those stunning textured hair, the sides will have Taper Fade for the best result. You sure can try other types of fades, but the Taper Fade is the most recommended one for this look. The combination makes the overall view simply astonishing.
This Buzz Fade look is different from other types of Crop Top Fade styles. To begin with, the sides have a high Buzz Fade. And the back hair also follows the same prescription of fade for this variation. The top hair has minimal textures to achieve the Crop appearance.
We understand that Buzz Fades are not everyone’s cup of tea. However, if you feel interested in such a cutthroat look, you can wear it with pride. You can achieve an incredibly rugged presence by just getting this style.
Striking V Fade
The engrossing V Fade works wonderfully with the Crop style. There are scopes to modify the look of the V in the back of your head according to your taste. The top hair is simple and textured to maintain the Crop principle.

Caesar Crop Top Fade
The inspiration for this style comes from the popular Caesar Haircut. Although the Crop Top haircut itself is a modern version of the Caesar style, the elements of the original Caesar style almost take over the Crop look of this variation.
The top hair has the Crop factor present in it. However, the hair in the front reveals the Caesar cut prominently. The fringes are shorter than French Crop but they are also a bit sharper than a traditional Crop Fade style.
Golden Textured Top

The middle area of the top of your head has some nice curls that extend toward the back. For these curls, the hair at the back produces one of the most perfect Mullet looks you can ever find.
Fluffy Top with Hard Line
Haircuts with hard lines or hard parts look more amazing than it does with usual styles. Since not many people go for a look with hard lines, it becomes a rare sight to spot any hard part or hard-line style. However, the Crop Top Fade has the mojo to accommodate the marvelous hard lines in one of its variations.
The top hair has a copious amount of textures to generate the Crop look easily. And the hard lines on either side disconnect the fade area from the top. Overall, in terms of the Crop Top Fade, it is a strong and dynamic style for sure!

Using various designs to elevate your hairstyle is one of the most popular approaches these days. The Crop Top too follows the trend here. The sides for this variation have Burst Fade to create a significant contrast with the top hair.
The design has a continuous line that includes the shape of a lightning bolt in it. The top hair has simple textures that go well with the Burst Fade. Since a design is involved in this style, it will certainly get more focus than the top hair.
Textured Drop Top
The hair length for this variation of Crop Top Fade stays in the medium range for a grand look. The top hair has some subtle textures, and they help the hair appear in a specific way. Those textures introduce a wonderful shaggy appearance to your hair.
The sides and the back are faded well for this variation. In this example, the fade in use is the Drop Fade. You can get Skin Fade as well if you are interested in a more high-spirited look. You can decide whatever you want with this style and wear it like a king!

Spiky Faux Hawk
This variation of the Crop Top Fade brings to you a youthful style that can turn heads everywhere. First of all, the sides have Taper which determines the area for the Faux Hawk. Then the rest of the game is played on the top of the head.
The back of the head has its hair trimmed down to match the Taper from the sides. Then, the top hair produces wonderful spiky hair for the whole head. And the magnificent Faux Hawk is created from the way you manage your top hair.
Short Crop for Receding Hairline
The popular belief is that Crop hairstyles do not work with a receding hairline. Since the hairline goes toward the back, having the front fringes is impossible. However, the rest of the two elements out of the three for the Crop Top is manageable with this hairline.
The sides may have a Buzz Fade for this style. And the top hair will be textured to give you a Crop appearance. When you have these two things present in your hair, you have the look of the Crop Top Fade without too much effort.
A Blonde Mohawk look is popular enough to be considered by many people as their favorite hairstyle. But there is more that can be added to this Mohawk. For instance, you can texturize your Mohawk to give it a Crop Top look.
Since you already have the Mohawk, the sides should already have one from Taper, Fade, or Shave. You only add texture to the top hair to make sure that you have a Crop appearance. That’s it!
The Buzz Crop is an interesting choice for a Crop Top Fade style. Primarily the hair length of a Buzz Cut is incorporated in this style. For the sides, you can get a Mid Temple Fade which looks great with the Buzz-styled hair.
The top and the back will have the traditional Buzz length in order to maintain consistency.
Takuache Haircut is a culturally adapted version of the original Caesar cut. Since the principles are almost the same for these two styles and the Crop Top Fade, it is easy to bring the Takuache into the Crop and merge them together.
That is exactly what we are doing in this Takuache Crop. The sides have Temple Fade but the frontal sides of the temples have a cleaned-up look. This is where the Takuache’s characteristic flourishes. And accordingly, the top hair and fringes have enough textures to produce a fine Crop Top Fade look.
Bleached Top with Texture
This Crop Top Fade variation comes up as a great choice if your target is to get a vibrant style for your next haircut. The style resembles a Mohawk if you consider the hair’s presence at the top. However, the hair in the back takes away this idea.
