The drop fade haircut is a popular variation of the classic fade. Like the name suggests, this type of fade drops low and behind the ear, creating a somewhat curved taper fade. Given the shape of a man’s head, the arc-shape of the drop fade provides a more natural and even look. You can even ask your barber to drop the fade lower in the back closer to your neckline, resulting in a low drop fade. For an edgy version with contrast, consider the high drop fade or drop fade undercut. Because fade haircuts are so versatile, they look good with all of the most popular men’s hairstyles.
While Black, White, Hispanic, and Asian men all have different types of hair, the drop fade works for all guys. How dope the cut looks on you ultimately depends on how skilled your barber is in fading your Afro, curls, waves, comb over, quiff, pompadour, or textured hairstyle into your sides.
