Bro Flow

It’s important to remember that texture is something you can almost always ask for at the stylist. Unless you go for a buzz cut that is; but with hair at a medium-long length like this, it is a given some added texture will complete the look!

Side Pushed Short Fringe

Short-to-medium length hair can do funny things when it dries. If you look towards the back of this cut, you can see a layered, spiky effect that likely appeared on its own.

French Crop with Faded Sides

The French crop is another example of a hairstyle where a little texturing goes a long way. The added flare from those loose and haphazard tufts on top adds plenty of character.

Spikes with Taper Fade

Highlights are known for being an excellent tool to enhance the shadows and light play, going for a tone as contrasting as this one will perceptively lead the eye to the haircut’s texture.

Dyed Spiky Hair

We love textured hairstyles thanks to the exciting contrast they create. Another way to add contrast to any haircut is with some light dye. Check out what happens when you combine the two!

Mini Angular Fringe with Tapered Sides

Asymmetry is really interesting when used with shorter styles because it pops. The slight notch in this fringe sticks out thanks to the otherwise tidy fringe and line up.

Flow Back Texture

Longer hair with a lot of flow taken to the back of the hair. A lot of options to choose from if it comes to the sides of the head. This style needs more styling but it’s definitely worth the effort.
