Men's Trend

Types of Fade Haircuts

Fade haircuts are one of the most popular and easiest hairstyle trends for men. They are everywhere because every color, length or hairstyle can be added to a fade. Fades are also a good looking, low maintenance cut that does not include hairdressing visits for maintenance.

A fade takes the hair from short to shorter. The three main types of faded haircuts are low, medium and high faded. This refers to how high the transition is on the head.

Burst-Fades and Temple-Fades cover a smaller part of the head but have a lot of influence. Bald fading can be one of the above and shave hair down to the skin.

Look at these pictures for all kinds of faded haircuts. Combine different types of fade with different hairstyles to create your own unique look.
