High-fade haircuts have been one of the most popular men’s haircuts for many years. That’s because it looks good, is suitable for all hair types, even the thickest or most frizzy hair, and grows clean.
The high fade has the same profile as the undercut with the ultra-short sides and the back in a line that protrudes from the forehead angles. Instead of having a length, the high-fade rejuvenates from short to shorter or all the way to the skin.
For a bald fade, also known as fading the skin, the fade will start high, but go down to the skin in a drop of fade that follows the neck for a flattering bow that works with the contours of the skull.
Most high-fade haircuts are longer on top, but can be short, medium, or longer. Check out these pictures for a few ways to wear high fade hairstyles.
1. High Bald Fade Haircut
The smooth back plus high fade is a winning combination and really easy to style. Just work in your favorite product, pull your hair up and back with a comb or your fingers and you’re done. This version has a bland fade that rejuvenates to the skin.
2. High taper fade haircut
Technically fading on the skin, while a taper ends in short hair. This makes this a high fade that ends with a little skin bleaching. This high fade with long hair on top is styled with lots of texture and a platinum quiff.
3. High Skin Fade Haircut
The skin fade is also known as bald. This version is a high-low fade that dips around the occipital bone rather than going straight back from the frontal edge.
That’s good, because every haircut should be adapted to your hair and head shape. The extra length on the crown prevents the hair from sliding up and keeps the hair on the back of the head well.
4. High Top Fade Haircut
The high peak with a high fade is a classic style with a fresh look thanks to more texture above. The high bare fade emphasizes the volume and shape of this cool cut.
High and tight fade haircut
The High and Tight is another classic men’s hairstyle that has a modern update with higher fades and more texture at the top. This cool short haircut for men works for both black and white hair and for everyone else. It’s about the profile with short to bare sides and a touch of length to the top.
Curly high top faded haircut
The absence of hair from a high shrink puts more emphasis on the hair at the top. For this reason, it is often paired with longer styles. It works especially well for people with curls because texture can go wild at the top while the sides remain maintenance free. This fresh style gets another kick from a bow-surgical line.
