The high top fade haircut, also known as the hi-top fade, was a popular black men’s hairstyle that peaked in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Nevertheless, the high top fade is back and transcending race. Although most commonly seen on black hair, the high top is becoming a cool hair trend and style for men of all cultures.
As a version of the flat top, the high top haircut is a high-contrast cut with short faded sides and a long top. The best thing about high top hairstyles is that they allow for many variations. For example, guys can choose to get a temp, low or high fade on the sides, or opt for a skin or drop fade for a change. Furthermore, men can get a high top fade with a part, dreads, curls, or a nappy Afro.
