Asymmetric short crops look hot and can definitely make heads turn. However, the sharp lines and edginess these crops feature make them suitable for women with very feminine and perfectly proportioned features. Because the perfect lines of such crops make the delice of the look, it's best if the hair is maintained sleek straight. This will underline the cut and give it a very sexy, healthy glow that will be plainly irresistible. Super short under layers created at the nape of the neck or on the sides of the head, featuring precise angles and lines, gently concealed by longer cut locks are super hot and only work when worn with plenty of confidence. Asymmetric crops need regular maintenance, so make sure you've also got the budget to go along with such a stylish, high maintenance crop.
