A bald fade (also known as a skin fade) is a trendy and modern hairstyle you can achieve by cutting the hair lower and lower as you move with the clipper towards the neck.
With classic shaved sides all around and a long top, the bald fade haircut is a low-maintenance and easy to achieve cut.
You’ll notice an incredible contrast between the top and faded sides that make this hairstyle one of our favorite cuts.
1) BALD FADE w/ QUIFF
One of the great things about a bald fade is that it allows you to maintain a neat and polished appearance while providing the freedom to experiment with different styles on top.
For example, pairing a skin fade with a quiff can create a fashion-forward look that’s still acceptable for the office.
2) BALD FADE w/ BUZZ CUT
If you’re looking for a hairstyle that’s smart, sharp and requires zero daily styling, you can’t pass up the bald fade buzz cut.
By combining a skin fade and a buzz cut together, this minimal cut appears cool and contemporary. Just remember to book your barber for regular trims to keep your cut neat and precise.
3) BALD DROP FADE
The bald drop fade combines two fade cuts into one. This hairstyle, which reduces down to the skin with a drop fade, slopes downwards as it moves behind the ears to the back of the head.
The result is a clearly a fashionable version of the bald fade that can pair well with a variety of styles up top, making it an ideal hairstyle for men.
4) BLENDED SHARP FADE
You can still have a blended look with a bald fade as you only need your barber to know and understand how to transition from the longer top to the skin level as gradually as possible.
If you’re also a fan of buzzed hairstyles, try adding one to the crown with a fancy razor line to add some extra edge and style.
5) BURST BALD FADE
This hairstyle is proof that the burst fade works with all types of hair, including thick, straight hair.
If you have naturally straight hair, this look offers the perfect contrast with the addition of a burst to the otherwise (boring) bald fade.
Following the short sides, long top hair trend for men, this bald fade is no exception when it comes to a sleek and modern look.
