What is a kids skin fade haircut?

A skin fade is a hair cutting technique that can be used to create a dynamic range of haircuts for boys. The skin fade differs from a standard kids haircut in that the hair is blended down to the skin above the natural hairline.

With a standard haircut the clippers would be used on the back and sides and typically a number two or number three guard is used. With a skin fade the hair will be cut in a gradient with the shortest length fading away to skin, this section is cut with an electric razor or razor blade.
