A fade haircut is a very popular hairstyle for men. It is a versatile hairstyle that can be done in many different ways. The fade haircut has many variations, such as the low fade, high fade, mid fade, and skin fade.
What is a Low-Fade Haircut?
A low fade haircut is when the length of the hair gradually decreases as it goes from the top of the head to the nape of the neck. The transition from longer hair to shorter hair should be subtle. This type of fade is perfect for those who do not want a drastic change.
What is a High-Fade Haircut?
A high-fade haircut is when the length of the hair decreases rapidly as it goes from the top of the head to the nape of the neck. The transition from longer to shorter hair will be more noticeable with this fade. This type of fade is perfect for those who want a drastic change.
What is a Mid-Fade Haircut?
A mid-fade haircut is somewhere in between a low fade and a high fade. The transition from long hair to shorter hair will be noticeable but not as drastic as a high fade haircut. This type of fade is perfect for those who want a medium amount of change.
The 7 Best Types Of Fade Haircuts
Buzz Cut With Line-up And Low-temple Fade
This is a very popular fade haircut for black men. The hair is cut short all over the head and then fades down to the skin at the temples. A line-up is created at the forehead to add definition.
Ideally, you can never go wrong with a buzz cut. It brings out your face and shows your masculinity. But with a fade, your buzz cut can go beyond the norms.
With a low-temple fade, you can transform your buzz cut to a sleek and dope style. And while you are at it, don’t fret about maintenance levels.
This cut is low-maintenance yet stylish – with a curve at the temple to make you stand out.
For the bearded gangs, you don’t have to let go of your beards and buns to look neat and attractive. You can get the best of both worlds with sideburn fade.
With a sideburn fade, you’ll make your burns neat and fashionable. The best part: this fade cut doesn’t reduce any of your manly charms. Instead, it gives off a ALPHA masculine vibe.
Faded Sides With Faux Hawk
Faux hawks are undoubtedly show-stoppers. But they are fast becoming plain. If you wear one, you can tune it up with a fade.
With close-cut faded sides, your faux hawk will stand out even better. The pointed edge combined with the buzzed sides will create a sleek look.
Curly Hair Fade
Either natural or artificial, you can style your curl afro hair even further to make it stand out. Add a low fade to the curly mane.
However, make the fade close-cropped. For an even more stylish look, curl your afro to one side of your head.
Medium Pomp Mid-fade Haircut
Similar to afro, pompadour cuts feature a pomp look. But you’d have to agree that the style is more suited for young men.
So, does that mean old and aged men can’t rock pompadour cuts without looking off?
With a low fade, you can wear a medium pomp cut and still look your age but stylishly. However, remember to regularly grease the top hair.
Long Hair Fade
Buns and braid lovers, this fade is for you!
Adding faded sides to your long hair isn’t easy to pull off. But when done rightly, your final look will be nothing short of a masterpiece.
Talking about masterpieces, fade below your bun and around your temple for the best look. If you don’t fancy a bun, a simple knot will suffice.
Low Bald Fade With Curly Fringe
Like afro cuts, curly fringe can be styled further with a fade. Snipped sides (with scissors) can also achieve that styling.
However, snipping might change your curly fringe to a makeshift Caesar cut.
If you prefer retaining your curly fringe, use a low bald fade to make it neat. Make it rounded for the best look!
Regardless of your pick, all fade haircuts are mid to high maintenance.
For starters, you must touch up the buzzed sides every other week.
But depending on your cut, the timeline can be as long as 6 weeks.
Either way, the secret to getting the best fade haircut is to let a professional cut one for you.
