SKIN FADES WITH NEWCASTLE’S BEST BARBERS
August 9, 2020
Men’s hairstyles have developed dramatically over the years and one of the classic hairstyles of today’s generation has got to be the high fade or similarly one of the other fade hairstyles. Popular with the sporting elite, it is no wonder that the freshly kept fade is also the cut of choice amongst the younger generations of today.
The classic high fade that so many of these sporting idols have popularised is cut short on the sides and back of the head, leaving only the topmost layer untouched. The fade is gradually shortened down the back and the sides for a gradient effect.
Over the years, there have been different variations to the classic high fade that offer subtle yet significant differences in a person’s look. Let’s take a look at four variations of the popular fade hairstyle:
The Taper Fade: is the lowest of all with the skin level only appearing on the sideburns and nape of the neck and then bursting out to longer lengths.
The Low Fade: starts at skin length just above the ear and tapers up gradually, behind the ears the low fade will drop down low around the back of the head.
The Mid Fade: will start around the temple or eyebrow level and dip a little around the back of the head at the optical bone.
The High Fade: starts higher again, reveals a lot of skin and may almost reach the crown of your head before it starts to get longer.
The various fade hairstyles continue to be our most requested cut. This could partly be due to the ongoing popularity with the hairstyle amongst local sports stars. Many of the Newcastle Knights and Newcastle Jets players keep a fresh fade and many of them actually get their regular cut right here at Barber Industries Kotara.
With so many sporting heroes and celebrities rocking a well kept fade, it seems the popularity will not be waning any time soon. After all, it’s hard to think of a hairstyle that looks as sharp or fast as a freshly cut high fade.
The trick to finding which fade will work best for you is in finding a truely capable barber.
