Here’s an understatement that needs to be put out in the open and be known to everyone: your haircut matters. Don’t listen to your peers telling you that even if you shave off your hair or let it grow long, girls won’t care. Oh please, if you care about girls chopping their own locks off, they care the same for yours too.
But it’s not just about smooth locks that your girl will run her hands through; it’s also about how it suits you. You can’t just get this haircut and expect girls to swoon over you.
Trendy tip for you, a haircut worn all-over by guys which girls seem to love? Celebrities have their hair cut like it, and it’s so trendy that even girls opt to have it.
Fade haircut or taper, a gradual cutting from your back and sides that grows shorter as it reaches to your neck, and although it’s been used over and over for a while until it had been given its name, it’s the kind of cut that never goes out of style.
But the thing about this one, there are different ways to wear it. Stick around and find the one that suits you and would make girls gaga over you or would make you feel good. Look good to feel good, am I right?
The Taper Fade
Clean, classic and versatile, it will give you the gentleman vibe that’s totally swoon-worthy. It’s sharp and classy but won’t only fit Christian Grey. That’s the kind of game that the taper style plays and the kind of style that you should definitely try to wear.
This is the style meant for you if you want to look smart and sharp but also want to stay on the natural side of style. There’s another great thing about this cut too. If you want to venture in a different style, this one could be used as the basis.
Told you it was versatile!
The Low Fade
This one’s less subtle and shows a little more skin than the taper fade. It’s still as stylish and would look great on you if your face is more oblong, diamond or triangular. It starts extremely low, with the skin at the very bottom, and then blends as it moves upward and follows the natural curve of your head.
Another thing about this one, it would look better if complemented with facial hair. Yes, facial hair! Not a lot of girls dig facial hair but maybe if you have this cut and wear a beard, your girl just might change your mind.
The Mid Fade
This one’s the most popular of out of all the fade cuts. Most guys opt this one out of the two because well, if you want a more casual approach and really like styling your hair more so like every other guy, then this one might be the right style for you. It’s a tad bit more noticeable than the low fade but doesn’t show as much skin.
Unlike the former one, it doesn’t start extremely low but at the point of your ears and leaves more hair to style and quaffed in any manner you want it to, just make sure you use a product that will hold and keep your hair under control. It’s popular with everyone, from the younger kids to teens and young adults, and to bachelors.
The High Fade
Remember the cut that Jake Gyllenhaal sported in the movie Jarhead? Maybe you’ve never really considered getting that cut because maybe it didn’t look too appealing for you but you might want to reconsider. It may be a little out there and bolder than the other styles but just try to imagine yourself with it.
If you prefer an American flat top then this cut would spice it up. If you’re also sporting an Afro, then this might truly be a cut worthy of considering. If you don’t mind such short hair and if you have a round or square face, then yup, this is the perfect cut for you!
The Scissor Fade
If you’re not a big fan of being shaven because you have an irrational fear for clippers or something, or maybe you’re not too keen on taking the highway to a fade haircut, then this one might be a good first step for you. It also gives you this smart-casual kind of vibe and would still make you look as dope as everyone else.
Rather using clippers to have the bottom half of your head shaven, scissors would be used hence the name of this style. It’s easy to wear and style and wouldn’t be a mistake. So if you’re still a little cautious on diving into the fade haircut, then try this one out.
But dude, another piece of advice, even if the way to have this haircut sounds really simple; do not cut your own hair. It’s the same as girls trying to cut their own bangs. You can shave your hair totally off on your own but for the love of all great hairstyles if you want this kind of cut; get yourself a quality barber who knows what he’s doing.
Sometimes saving cash just isn’t worth it if you’re walking around with a bad haircut that might last a little while.
Here’s another great tip, don’t cut your hair when there’s a lump or bump that your hair has been hiding. Let your scalp play out in the decision making too. After all, your scalp wouldn’t be the one who’s going to hear the comments of everyone else when they notice there’s a lump on your hair that became obvious because of your haircut.
And if you’re truly one trendy and fashionable man, there’s another great way to make a statement other than getting an interesting haircut. This may be a trendy gift for yourself or for a friend, beautiful pins that will surely make a fashion statement. Check out those pins and you might just land yourself the role of a trendsetter.
So what are you waiting for? Find the haircut that’s suitable on you and head to your favorite barber and tell him that this is the look that you want. Oh and get those pins too if you want to become a fashion influencer along the way.
