Before the fade haircut caught on, it was all about the undercut. First, what is it? The undercut shaves hair around the sides and back ultra short while leaving some length on top.
This versatile cut can leave hair short to long and also works for all hair types. The original undercut was one length all over but undercut fades have some of that signature blur.
Now, what’s the difference between an undercut and a high fade? For the most part an undercut will go all the way up to your part while a high fade stops lower down but that is not a rule.
Now check out so of the top 10 ways to wear men’s undercut hairstyles.
