Undercut Fade

The undercut fade takes adds a blurry fade to that classic undercut silhouette.

The undercut, aka disconnect hairstyle, shaves hair down to one length from a line extending back from the temple. Hair on top is left medium to long. These medium length cuts can be slicked back, worked up into a pompadour or even create the illusion of a mohawk.

The undercut fade is very similar to a high fade haircut and could also be called that. Always bring a picture to show your barber to avoid confusion.
