Top 10 Fade Haircut Styles & How To Get Them

In 2021, the fade has become something that is universally known and loved. In every barber shop in the country, you’d probably see someone getting some sort of fade in their haircut. Even going back in time, the fade has always been a very common hairstyle worn by men – popular in some way in almost every era. They are truly that popular; and for good reason – they look amazing. Today, the limit to styles of fades is virtually nonexistent; with men all over the world experimenting and pushing the boundaries to create new ones every year.

So, What Is A Fade?

When talking about a fade, you’re generally referring to how the sides and back of your head are styled. A barber will typically leave some of the sides and back bald and slowly ‘fade’ the length of the hair upwards towards the top. With that being said, some fades are more extreme than others. Each different hairstyle in the fade category can be split up into three very general categories; high fade, mid fade, and low fade. These categories refer to the area of the head where the fade begins.

Without further ado, let’s get into the best fade hairstyles of 2021!
