When it comes to switching up a short crop, leave it to singer Jennifer Hudson to inspire us. Ever since she made the Big Chop last year, we’ve watched the star convert her crop in a number of ways. A fave recent style move: this slicked-back silhouette she’s flaunting for her single “Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel).” Make a similar mane move on short strands by working in a light pomade through the crown and using a wide-tooth comb to direct hair off the face. “Push” the crown section forward a bit to build in height and you’re good to go!
