High-fade haircuts cut hair ultra-short or down to the skin around the sides and back of the head. This gives the look of thicker hair and focuses on the style above, whether short or long.
A high fade can be added to any man’s haircut, from a short buzz to long hair that can be shaped into a pompadour or a comb. Of course it also works for curly hair and creates a textured mop or high-top style for tighter curls.
This haircut is especially flattering for guys with round faces or wide cheeks where the hair on the sides would add even more width. High-fade haircuts can work for any face shape, but it depends on what hairstyle is above. Longer face shapes may want to carry the hair over the forehead. High-volume styles work for larger surface shapes. Messier styles add height and width on the top, which are flattering for face-shaped diamonds that are wide on the jaw.
