Skin Fade Haircut / Bald Fade Haircut

The skin fade haircut, also known as a zero fade and bald fade, is a very trendy and popular men’s taper fade cut. As one of the latest hair trends for men, the skin fade comes in a variety of cuts, such as a high, mid and low bald fade haircut. Because the high and low skin fade works best with high-contrast “short on the sides, long hair on top” hairstyles, the cut is often paired with a stylish quiff, comb over, pompadour, side partfaux hawk or crew cut to create a super cool style! However, you can definitely combine any short fade with short hair on top as well – just think buzz cut, waves, caesar, or French crop.

The other benefit of the bald taper fade is the clean, modern look of your shaved sides. By buzzing the hair on the sides down to the skin, your barber creates a simple, low-maintenance hairstyle perfect for the spring and summer months.
