The mid fade haircut offers a perfect balance between a low fade and high fade. A medium fade is a type of taper cut for men that lands below the temples and above the ear – right in the middle of the side of the head. Medium fade haircuts, like other fades, come in a variety of styles and looks. For example, guys can get a mid skin fade for a very short cut, or opt for a razor fade for a disconnected look. You may even want to ask your barber for a bald fade that works into your beard!
Ultimately, the mid fade is a stylish way to get a short sides, long top hairstyle that really emphasizes your longer hair on top. Read on to find out whether this faded haircut style can work for you!
