Fade haircut is definitely in style for men today. It’s fairly easy to maintain, and tends to look pretty good.
The end of the fade is typically going to be 0, which is skin. So you may start with like a 2, then move to like a 1.5, then a 1, and a 0.5. This will give you that nice seamless fade.
The best way to ensure an even fade is to work carefully and slowly. Depending on the hair and your level of experience, cutting a fade can take anywhere from half an hour to several hours.
Depending on the hair and personal style, fades can be high and trimmed or start lower and blend into the neckline.You can also see our details.
- For an even and well-maintained fade, plan on trimming the cut every 4-6 weeks.
- If the person has a cowlick that would make it difficult to fade at a certain point on the head, start the fade just above or below it.
- Consult the person whose hair you’re cutting as you work to make sure they’re satisfied with the length and overall style.
Because fades are a complicated cut, avoid cutting your own hair unless you have hairstyling experience. Cut another person’s hair or have someone cut your hair so the person cutting can see the entire head and blend the cut evenly.
