Skin fades are one of our most requested haircuts, however there is often still some confusion around the skin fade and the different styles that make up this family of cuts. In this article we will explain the characteristics of a skin fade haircut and describe the different variations.

What Is A Skin Fade Haircut?

Much confusion stems from people using the terms taper and fade interchangeably when they are actually two different things. Both are a gradual reduction in the length of the hair. A taper is a gradation between longer and shorter hair down to the hairline. A fade differs because it fades down to skin level and finishes above the hairline, what changes between the different fade hairstyles is how much skin shows and where. 

What Are The Different Types of Skin Fade Haircut?

Low Skin Fade 

A low skin fade shows roughly an inch of skin above the hairline. The fade drops down behind the ears and around the back of the head, keeping an inch of skin shown relatively even all the way around. 

Mid Skin Fade 

With a mid fade the skin runs higher up on the head, starting from around the brow, it again drops down behind the ears and behind the back of the head, but usually only a little.

High Skin Fade 

A high skin fade leaves a lot of exposed skin, starting up around the forehead at the front and almost reaching the crown of your head and the back.

Taper Fade 

Here you have a taper of the hair down to the hairline and a fade to skin evident only at the temples and nape of the neck. 

Burst Fade 

A burst fade is cut in a semicircle shape above the ear, it drops down behind the ear where it ends, it does not continue along the nape of the neck like a low or mid fade does.

Burst Taper Fade 

Much like the taper fade mentioned above however the fade at the temple is cut in a semicircle shape or ‘burst’.

Which Skin Fade Hairstyles Are Trending?

At the moment we are seeing the mullet take on many different forms and plenty of those involve a burst fade of burst taper fade. In fact the burst taper fade has really become the most trendy modern take on the old school classic hairstyle. 

And that's a wrap, we hope this article helps to clarify the different types of skin fades and makes it that little bit easier when requesting your next haircut at the barbershop. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to ask Ali and the team here at Barber Industries Cessnock.
