7 Edgy Taper Fade Haircut Styles

The taper fade haircut is one of the coolest and trendiest hairstyles. It offers both a masculine and clean look, making it a great choice for both casual and professional situations.

 

This hairstyle is clearly very versatile, and with this haircut, you're able to create a cool, edgy and unique style all at once. 

 

1) TAPER FADE HAIRCUT W/ UNDERCUT DESIGN

If you happen to like the traditional taper fade haircut and like having a cool design that will turn heads, this style is the perfect choice.

 

You'll notice in this example, the shaved design focuses on the nape area. Next, the two zig zags, as with any undercut design, allow for some creativity. This haircut is both edgy and unique and will definitely stand out from the crowd.

 

2) CAESAR TAPER FADE

The Caesar taper fade is styled with the hair on top cut in a somewhat longer style. As you can see, the hair is commonly swept to the front instead of parted on the side.

 

The short bangs can then be combed to the side while the hair on top is styled with a strong-hold hair gel or wax.

 

3) MOHAWK TAPER FADE

When it comes to a taper fade with an added mohawk, you have room to show your creativity and personality. You have a ton of flexibility with this hairstyle. You can style your mohawk either long, short, or perhaps in between.

 

For those with an afro texture, we recommend a shorter mohawk. Don't forget to ask your barber or hairstylist to add some sponge twists for some added edge.

 

4) BURST TAPER FADE

Burst taper fade hairstyles have the components of the mohawk or Caesar, but are altered to be a bit more modern. 

As you can see, this haircut is best for those with curly hair. It can also be styled with a twisted design on the sides or perhaps some added color on top for some additional flare.

 

5) CHOPPY TAPER FADE

A fade with a chopped top is perfect for men looking for an awesome hairstyle that is low-maintenance to style once cut.

 

As you'll see in the example, with this hairstyle, you can easily add some edge to your otherwise traditional look.

You can also enhance or soften the natural texture of your by styling with a high-quality gel or pomade.

 

6) TAPER FADE W/ FAUX HAWK

You might be surprised to find that the faux hawk is similar to a taper fade or a mohawk. If you're a man who's searching for that hairstyle that is a little different from the rest, this is the haircut for you! 

 

This hairstyle is essentially very similar to a mohawk, except it doesn't require  any heavy shaving.

 

We recommend styling with a strong-hold pomade or clay like our ShapeShifter or HydroClay.

 

7) TAPER FADE W/ WAVES

For men with naturally wavy hair and those that prefer a longer look, this taper fade hairstyle is perfect for you.

 

Notice how the subtle shaving pulls you and draws your attention to the natural wavy locks. Sexy and stylish all in one!
