Getting The Perfect Low Fade

The low fade haircut is very popular and helps create a contrast between two different hair lengths. Coming up with a fade is very simple, and anyone can come up with a clean fade as long as they know what they expect as the results. The hair should be longer at the top and gradually decrease as you get closer to the bottom.

With the proper guiding steps and tools, coming up with a fade haircut is a very easy process. Fades are considerably popular among men, especially because they are mostly done as an extension of another hairstyle. Learn how to do a low fade if you consider getting one from this simple procedure below.

  1. Trimming The Top With The Scissors

Remember that the definitive feature of a fade is long hair on the top and shorter hair on the sides and the back. However, the top part is needed longer, and some little trimming will be needed to keep it in shape. 

To do the trimming, you will need to lift some sections of hair on the top part between your fingers so that the tips of the hair are left protruding. Proceed to repeatedly trim the tips of the hair’s top in small portions until you get the desired length.

Trim from different positions until you achieve an even length for all the hair. If there are bangs, consider trimming them in small sections until you get a final even line.
  1. Completely Trim The Sides And The Back With A Large Guard Size

Remember, starting the procedure aims to attain a neat low fade. For this reason, you will need to put a lot of attention on the sides and the back.

When cutting the sides and the back, you should set the clippers for a long length since the hair left should be extremely short. The direction you choose when using the guard length depends on the length you want the top fade to be.

For an even fade cut, you should work against the direction of the natural hair growth. Trim one section after the other until you attain the uniform required length.

When cutting the hair, you can observe a vertical movement beginning from the hairline as you work your way up to the top of the head.

When you reach a point where you are working on the rounded part of the head, use the clippers slightly outwards and at a lifted angle. This step makes it easier to come up with a smooth fade.

  1. Trimming The Hair At The Back Of The Head

Use the shortest guard number and in a vertical direction to cut the hair starting from the back as you move gradually to the crown of the head. Be careful not to interfere with the hair at the crown because, ideally, it should be left longer. Repeat the motion severally with the same clippers to eliminate any possible uneven lines in hair length.
  1. Buzzling The Nape

Use the shortest guard setting to buzz the nape. Do the trimming in upward strokes until you get somewhere near the center of the head back. Workaround to even out the length of hair on the back and sides.

It is important to ensure that the sides and the back are of an exact length if you want a neat fade. Completely shave the hair on the nape for a neat edge.

  1. Cleaning The Edges 

You will need to go through a few last steps to get a clean, neat look on the edges. Try moving your clippers along the edges and the nape to get any uneven sections. 

Using the right number depending on the section to blend out the length. If you want your fade to have a sharp hairline, consider using a razor for a clean shave.

  1. Styling The Hair At The Top

When styling the hair at the top, it is a personal decision. You need to understand your hair texture and the hair products that work with your hair type. 

You can style the longer hair at the top in so many ways. The most important thing is to ensure that you got the fade correctly. To maintain the fade neat, you’ll need to get regular trims every once in a while.
