Skin Fade Haircuts

Skin fade haircuts have been a popular addition to men’s haircuts for years. Therefore , I think the trend will not go away any time soon.

The skin fade haircut, also known as a zero fade and bald fade. It’s a type of haircut that tapers on the sides and back, blending short faded hair into the skin. Generally, the haircut starts with longer hair on top of the head, and then gradually becomes shorter down the sides and back, towards the neck.

As one of the latest hair trends for men, the skin fade comes in a variety of cuts. For instance, high, mid and low bald fade haircut. Because the high and low skin fade works best with high-contrast “short on the sides, long hair on top” hairstyles, the cut is often paired with a stylish quiff, comb over, pompadour, side part, faux hawk or crew cut to create a super cool style! However, you can definitely combine any short fade with short hair on top as well. (Just think buzz cut, waves, caesar, or French crop).

If you’re looking for a fade haircut but aren’t sure exactly how you want it cut, try a bald fade on the sides with one of these top short men’s hairstyles.

High Skin Fade

The haircut is the sexy, masculine, and very short. The haircut will taper your sides and back to look like a shaved cut. Good for men with long, medium, and short hair, this kind of fade clearly highlights the men’s hairstyle on top.

Guys with thinning or fine hair will also like that it minimizes bald spots. If you want a really short hairstyle that comes with plenty of contrast, get high skin faded sides. The sharp trendy look is fashionable, and the women in your life will swoon.

Mid Skin Fade

The haircut starts in the middle of your sides and back to achieve a balanced look. Not too edgy yet not completely innocent, the haircut is the most versatile cut.

Great for little boys, teens, young men, and older guys, the skin mid taper fade works with all of the best hairstyles. Ultimately, a mid fade down to the skin will focus the eyes on the short or long hair on top, just the way a tapered cut should.

Low Skin Fade

The haircut is a fresh yet versatile take on the style. This haircut starts just above the ears. Clean-cut and classy, men like low skin fades because they very gradually blend and taper the sides and back to create a cool yet understated look.

If you still want to partake in this modern haircut but need to look presentable at the office, ask your barber for a low cut skin fade. The style looks best with medium to longer hair on top, but guys can pull of short hair as well.

How To Style?

Style the top with a hair styling product. Clay, wax, gel, and pomade all work well with faded hair. Work a small amount of styling product into the top, brushing or combing it as you do so to give it a clean, neat look.

Trim the fade every 4 to 6 weeks, as regular maintenance. To maintain the same hair length and fade, re-trim the cut approximately once every 4 to 6 weeks. Although fades grow out evenly, their style can change significantly as they grow out and require routine trims
