1) LOW FADE + SLICK BACK
A slick back hairstyle is already trendy, but when you add a low fade into the mix, it takes this look to a whole new level. When you speak to your barber, simply request a low fade on the sides with a slick back on top, but you might want to bring photos for reference.
To style, blow-dry the hair back on medium heat and using a comb. Next, work a pomade through the full length of the hair using your fingers. We recommend using a firm hold pomade like our ShapeShifter.
Finish by using your comb to slick the hair back and lock things into place.
2) LOW FADE + SHORT AFRO
One of the great things about afros is whether you opt for a flat top or a buzz cut, they work with basically any type of fade.
The contrast between the low fade and the structure and detailing around the hairline is what makes this style unique. The goal is to leave things looking razor sharp and detailed, so we suggest asking your barber for a low fade with a grade one or lower.
Remember that the shaped-up lines will need frequent attention to stay looking pristine. Make sure to get a trim regularly, about every two weeks to keep it looking sharp.
3) CLEAN CUT LOW FADE
The “boy-next-door” haircut is timeless, and yet it can easily be modernized with a low fade cut and some added facial hair. To style, brush your hair back with your favorite styling product, then use a hairdryer and a round brush to add some extra volume.
4) NATURAL FLOWING LOW DROP FADE
The spiral pattern at the center of the head is what is most eye-catching about this hairstyle. What makes this look so unique is that it starts with the natural hair growth pattern, then drops into the low fade on the sides.
5) LOW FADE W/ TEXTURED TOP
A fade cut should complement every aspect of the wearer’s face. You can thicken the tuft of hair on top by fading the sides above the ear-line to make the hair at the top appear thicker.
