The low fade haircut is one of the best fade haircut alternatives. Thanks to its stylish, masculine, and sophisticated looks, it takes your image a step further. This haircut is focused on the sides of the head, as in other variants. It is possible to evaluate different style options for the top.

If you want to try a new hairstyle and don’t want to take risks, a low fade is the best choice for you. Because, when it comes to a low fade the hair on the sides is shaved very short until a low level. Since the fade cutting technique is applied to an area limited to slightly above the ear, a very marginal appearance does not appear.

What Is The Low Fade Haircut?

The fade may describe as cutting the hair in different lengths and creating a transition between the sides and top. When it comes to the low fade, the reason for using the term “low” is that the area with a fade is at a low level (an inch above the ear). The hair tapers gradually from top to down and is blended with each other. Hair length at the lowest level is almost zero. In this area, the skin is clearly visible.

You can prefer different alternatives for the hair on top. Contemporary hairstyles such as quiff textured crop, a pompadour, crew cut can match well with low fade.

How To Get A Low Fade?

In the low fade haircut, barbers determine a line for demarcation just above the ear and they completely shave the hair below this line. After that, starting from this point, fade goes up to about an inch upwards. For this process, It is used a hair clipper with the lever open. Then barbers put a #1 guard to hair clipper and go up an inch again. When this stage completed, they continue to cut the hair gradually upwards. Different guards are used for each level and a smooth transition is created for the sides. Finally, the process is completed by blending all the hair gradually.

The low fade haircut can combine with different fade variations such as drop fade, skin fade, or bald fade. In the drop fade, the hair drops behind the ear and create an arch. Also, if you want a skin fade or bald fade, your sides are shaved a hair clipper with number zero.
