What Is The Skin Fade/ Bald Fade Haircut?

A Skin Fade is the style achieved by cutting the hair lower and lower as you move with the clipper towards the neck. Though most haircuts require the locks to be the same length all around the head, skin fade haircuts demand the hair to be cut at a decreasing length level.

The skin fade is especially unique because it is super unique and it stands out among other hairstyles.  The difference in the hair sides and a full head of mane is constantly attractive and attention-grabbing. A particularly trendy, modern day look, and best of all, it is not difficult to get done and needs little or no maintenance.

How to achieve the Skin Fade Haircut Step by Step:

  • We will need t-liner clippers, heavy duty clippers, a really sharp razor blade , a mirror, and tiny fading remember to brush and a comb.
  • First make your line(fade line) , perhaps about an inch above the ears.
  • Then cut the hair to a really low length from the lower part of the hairline up to that particular point where the fade line is, working around the whole head — use your clippers (lowest setting zero), mini-trimmers, t-liners, or a cut-throat razor to get a super fresh look.
  • Following, do the process again on the next section directly above the recently barbed area (perhaps half an inch higher), altering the clipper’s setting up a notch. This process will allow the hair to gradually “fade” as it gets down to the ears.
  • Keep shaving using small and fast strokes to get rid of small bits of hair, rather than long strokes to take away large amounts of hair. Remember to brush the area you working on in order to see if the mane is faded and free of imperfections.
  • Repeat the process until you reach the top of the edges of the head. If there are any uneven areas or ‘steps’, go back over them with mini-trimmers or scissors and a nicely toothed comb to blend in the steps.
  • When you have done the fade leaving no imperfections, use a razor blade or mini-trimmers to produce an extra sharp look and Shapen up the angles of the clients hair in order to upgrade the level of detail.
  • Lastly, cut his (your clients) hair on the top as your client wants it to be or as you see fit depending on the head shape, whether a short or long hairstyle. Alot of guys are recently going for trending and modern-day looks so to have heads turn around and look at them this is the hair cut guaranteed to grab attention.
