RENAISSANCE: THE GROWING POPULARITY OF THE MEN’S TAPER HAIRSTYLE
May 25, 2023
The old taper hairstyle has seen a surge in popularity recently, and it’s no wonder! This classic look can be versatile, sophisticated and quite edgy. Here at Barber Industries in Pacific Fair, we're quite fond of this surge in popularity as it's leading to some really interesting and contemporary looks. It's a nice change up to the constant high fades and in particular, as a trend, we see low taper fades with longer, textured locks on top becoming increasingly popular.
What is a men's taper hairstyle?
Technically speaking the taper is simply a gradation in the length of the hair, predominantly on the back and sides.
Most men's hairstyles involve some form of taper. A taper can be low, mid or high depending on the desired look – low comes up just slightly from the hairline, mid is medium and high gradates right up on the sides and up towards the crown on the back. Distinctively there is always a hairline above the ear with a taper hairstyle.
The taper fade takes it one step further with a complete fading out of the hairline at the temple and nape of the neck, so that it looks as though the hair seamlessly blends away to skin at these points.
What's trending with the taper hairstyle?
One particular style combination that is growing in popularity is a low taper fade with longer, more grown out hair on top.
The top can be styled with some textured height or a messy nest of curls. This style looks exceptionally good on men with dense, dark and curly hair.
Another popular development and one we are seeing mostly with teenage boys and girls, is a taper and then some line art or a pattern design cut in from the nape of the neck. When done right this looks damn cool and fresh but you want to trust a professional barber with a creative flair to execute correctly.
