The Shadow Fade Haircut


The shadow fade is one of the most popular types of fade haircuts for men. And like other cool fades, the shadow fade haircut has many variations. Guys can choose to get a low, mid or high shadow fade, but the key feature of this taper fade is the direct blending of the hair on the sides into the hair on the top (instead of a high-contrast cut). Instead, the shadow fade offers a light, medium or dark fade transition from the sides to top. In keeping with the “short sides, long top” men’s hair trend, we also recommend that the hair on top be any length as long as it’s longer than the sides.

The best part about the shadow fade is that you can get it with any number of different haircuts. Two popular hairstyles are the shadow fade with waves or the shadow temp fade. Because the men’s shadow fade haircut requires skill and precision, we definitely suggest you ask your barber if he knows how to do a shadow fade taper before requesting it.
