Low Bald Fade
A fade that starts a skin level right before the ears and gradually increases in length towards the scalp. An added bonus to this cut is how it blends smoothly as it grows out meaning less frequent cuts are needed!
High Bald Fade
The fade starts about two inches above the ear and seamlessly transitions into the hair on top of the head.
Low Skin Fade for Black Hair
Involves long hair on top that gradually gets shorter until it reaches skin level typically around the high neck area. The lines on this cut look really crisp resulting in a clean look.
Buzzcut + Medium Bald Fade
This cut sits perfectly between a high and low bald fade, which is a nice choice other than a drastic contrast in length. Pair the medium bald fade with a buzzcut on top to rock this look.
Bald Drop Fade
Also known as a skin fade, the bald drop fade starts at a zero on the sides and blends to any length on top. It’s called a drop fade because the fade drops as it passes below ear length.
Bald Fade Combover
This look can be worn with either a high or low bald fade as long as there are a few inches of length to make the combover as drastic or as tame as you’d like. Use a light product to keep the hair on either side and a rattail comb to define the part.
Bald Taper Fade
This is a short haircut around the neck and sides that is then tapered around the ears & back of the neck. The only bald fade that you’ll need scissors & clippers to achieve a smooth look.
Bald Fade with Design
A low bald fade with a design shaved in such as a few sharp lines, a heart, a lightning bolt, really anything that you like and that your barber can create!
Bald Fade with Waves

Mid Bald Fade
The look that is professional enough for work but personalizable enough to add your spice to it. The length falls between high and low bald fade and looks incredible with some designs worked into sharp, drastic lines.
