27 Fade Haircuts For Men -> Check Out These Styles!

The type of fade you get has a dramatic effect on the way your fresh haircut and hairstyle is going to look. In this post, we cover all the different types of fade haircuts that you can ask your barber to give you at your upcoming visits. If you want a super clean and stylish 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 neatly 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 and sides. If you want extra style points, ask your barber to incorporate a cool hair design.

Let’s get into the details with these brand new men’s fade haircuts that you can try out.
