The fade haircut is very popular right now and what is great is that you can get such different variations of a fade haircut. So it makes sense right? to compile a nice selection of images showcasing what type of haircuts you can have where the fade has been implemented.
The fade haircut started life in the 1950’s in the U.S where service men enlisting in the military would garner such a style. The fade haircut was easy to maintain and required little effort to style, it was a practical haircut to have for the rigors of military life and combat.
The fade haircut was re-worked and later adapted to the hip-hop culture of the 1980’s. A definition of a fade haircut is where the sides and back are kept very short, in some instances shaved to the skin and then the top is faded in to slightly longer hair. The key is to make sure that the fade is gradual and that you cant see any blended lines in the fade.
You can just about add a fade to most hairstyles but below I want to show you a series of fade haircuts which are more true to its name.
This pic below is nicely faded up to the top where the hair is of medium length.
This style below is very neat and tidy, there are a lot of things happening here and I like how the final part of the fade really blends in well with the top of the hair.
A unusual fade where the back is kept the same length as the top.
This fade below really works as the hair is very black. You can pick out all the hair strands, the haircut also has really neat tapered edges.
These next fades has been well thought out using interesting shapes. I like how the hair blends well as you get to the top of the hair.
This is one haircut that you have got to try at least once in your life!
