27 Fade Haircuts For Men

The type of fade you get has a dramatic effect on the way your fresh haircut and hairstyle is going to look. Lets go over all the types of fade haircuts that you can ask your barber to give you at your upcoming visits. If you want a super clean men’s haircut then you will want to get a cool fade.

Outside of the area of your hair that gets faded you can go with short hair on top, or a medium to long length of hair that will create more contrast. A longer length of hair will also give you more options on how to style your look. You can slick back your hair, keep it more natural and dry looking, mess it up, or style it neat with a combover.

Within the faded area on the sides and back of your head, your barber can really alter your look dramatically depending on how he does the fade. In general you have three options: a low, mid or high fade haircut. For each type of fade your barber will use clippers to go from a very short length or even bald skin, and graduate up to a greater length towards the top of the head. If you want a little extra style ask for a hard part or a specific hair design.

Lets get into the details with these 27 fresh men’s fade haircuts that will continue to be popular choices for men’s hairstyles in 2017.
