We have reached the age of invention with Bald Fade Haircuts. This is a trendy hairstyle for men which can also be seen under Skin Fade. Technically, the two haircuts are identical. You can argue that the former sounds catchier.
Now, there are many popular variations of this hairstyle. For instance, we have the mix with an undercut, with a beard, comb-over, long on top or mohawk. Alternatives, you can sport the look with waves. Moreover, there is also a case where you can argue that this hairstyle is somewhat close to a crew cut. Alternatively, a combination of quiff, pompadour or faux hawk is considered for that modern touch.
In conclusion, we can state that this hairstyle is versatile. Furthermore, you can incorporate into or with many other hairstyles that we have covered here at StyleEasily.com. Now, the question stands, what is the magic formula here?
What is a Bald Fade Haircut?
The image below shows exactly the necessary steps to follow. So, the hairstyle is, in essence, a combination of a long center with the side cut short to show the skin below. Moreover, for variation, we have different length of fade and the center hair to go in a combination.
The most famous example of the hairstyle is to keep it with different fades, taper and a crew cut on top. Alternatively, we can design this style with lines and in combination with the slick back. However, you can sport this look with or without a beard. But, usually, men don this look with a short top. With that said, men with medium and long length can also keep bald fade.
This is universally accepted hairstyle for black men, white men, Asian men, boys, and Hispanics. There is so much room for creativity with different hair textures. However-
What to Avoid?
If you know someone or heard someone who wants to sport a reverse Bald Fade, I suggest you pick that phone and dial for the police. This is beyond criminal. You’re doing everyone a favor by reporting these to the officials.
However, on a serious note, do avoid shaving down the middle. I can’t stress it any further.
Want to Upgrade?
With that said, I want to suggest that this is an ideal hairstyle for men who are looking for an upgrade in their style. Regardless of what you have been sporting for years, this is a look that people can pull off easily with simple trim and a little bit of maintenance.
Whether you are looking to keep it short, medium or long, I have got your back.
