New Hair Style For Boys
The fade haircut is a modern look that continues to rise in popularity. The defining characteristic of the taper fade is a gradual taper in hair length. Towards the bottom of the head, the hair gets progressively shorter and can even be faded into the skin. There are many variations to fade haircuts for men, which include some confusing terminology.
To clarify, here are some of the common types of fades and what they mean.
High vs Low Fade
The high fade haircut is an edgy, high-contrast cut. It begins high on the sides and back, and the hair gradually tapers down the neck. On the other hand, the low fade starts at the edges of your cut and hairline, right above your ears and neckline. The taper is barely noticeable in some low fades.
Often, the low fade is a more conservative cut that’s safe for professionals, whereas a high fade shows off more scalp. Guys can even combine different kinds of fades, such as a low skin fade or high bald fade. If you’re considering whether to get a high or low fade and aren’t sure which works better with your desired hairstyle, ask your barber for his advice.
Skin and Bald Fade
The skin fade haircut is a style that more extreme and aggressive. Instead of tapering and ending your cut with very short hair, the bald fade involves your barber blending into your skin. This kind of fade looks really cool when paired with short to medium hairstyles on top and possibly thick facial hair. Otherwise, a buzz cut on top with a skin fade on the sides is very much a military style that doesn’t offer much versatility.
The undercut involves short hair on the sides of the head and around the back. Unlike the fade, the undercut hairstyle is generally cut all one-length (except in the case of the undercut fade) and starts very high on the sides. Like the name states, the undercut haircut essentially under cuts the hair on top to provide a strong contrast between the longer top and short sides.
The most common version of the undercut hairstyle is the slicked back undercut. However, guys can combine the cut with any number of styles on top, including the quiff, pompadour, comb over, and messy, textured hair. What started off as a hipster haircut for men has become a hit in barbershops around the world.
If you’re tired of a fade, then change it up with an undercut – they both work for most of the same looks.
Fringes go through cycles in terms of men’s fashion – one year they’re in, and the next year they’re out. For 2018, textured fringe hairstyles seem to be very trendy for guys with curly hair. This is because wavy and curly hairstyles can be hard to manage, but the curly fringe just seems to work.
Otherwise, adding a short fringe to your look can be an easy way to change your cut. Whether you want an angled fringe to showcase your hair’s texture or color, or a blunt fringe to frame your face, this hairstyle can suit any guy’s look.
The crop is a twist on the classic Caesar haircut. Short and convenient to wear, the French cropfeatures short hair with a straight fringe at the hairline in the front. While the fringe adds an element of fashion to your haircut, the short length is very low-maintenance and easy to style in the mornings. Many guys combine the crop with a fade on the sides or an undercut in order to keep the style fresh and on point.
The quiff continues to be one of the coolest hairstyles for men. While a relatively high-maintenance look that requires a good men’s styling product to pull off, the quiff hairstyle is worth the extra effort.
The modern quiff only needs 3 inches of hair on the top of the head and guys can use a pomade for a sleek finish or a wax for a textured, natural look. Either way, apply your hair product of choice, brush back your hair, and blow dry to get a stylish quiff.
