Until Covid 19 Lockdowns the fade haircuts were among one of the most popular hairstyles for men, in part due to the many different types of fades you can ask for. Furthermore, modern men’s haircut styles have been focused on a fade with long hair on top. Whether you want a low, mid, high, taper, bald or skin fade haircut, faded hairstyles have something to offer every guy, including White, Black, Latino, and Asian men.
Moreover, where you ask your barber to start your fade isn’t the only factor that affects the kind of fade you get. Men can choose from a razor, bald or skinfade as well as different top styles including a graduated top, blended, drop, flat top, pomp and many more!
What Is A Fade Haircut?
The fade haircut, also known as a taper, involves gradually cutting the hair on your back and sides shorter as it gets closer to your neck. By blending and fading the hair on the sides, from long at the top to short at the bottom, your barber can taper your fade cut into your neck and sideburns.
Taper vs Fade
Although most men and barbershops use the terms “taper” and “fade” interchangeably, technically, tapers and fades are different haircuts. Generally, the difference between a fade and taper is that the fade haircut generally blends down to the skin while the taper still leaves some hair, albeit very short.
Although both are blended and apply the same concept of trimming hair shorter and shorter, the taper doesn’t cut down to the skin and is therefore a more understated cut and style. Ultimately, the longer hair on the sides exposes less scalp and is therefore less edgy
For older men or business professionals working in offices that require a more conservative look, a taper fade haircut may be appropriate.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
