The Afro taper fade haircut, also known as the Afro fade for short, is a popular hairstyle for black men of all ages. While the taper fade Afro is pretty straightforward, there are a number of variations, styles and designs that can be applied to this haircut. For example, a curly Afro with a taper fade is likely the best haircut for someone who has kinky or curly hair. However, black men also have the option of asking their barber for a high or low taper fade Afro haircut. The low tapered Afro may be more appropriate for a business professional while the high taper Afro paired with an edge up offers more contrast for an edgy style.
Ultimately, there are many types of fades you can combine with different kinds of trendy Afro hairstyles. From the drop fade to the temp fade to the all around taper on the sides, there are many ways to get Afro fade haircuts. Check out these cool Afro haircuts to find the hottest hairstyle for you.
