Very Classy: The Fade Hairstyles

After almost 2 years of on-and-off spotting an undercut hairstyle, I’m officially done with it.

What’s next? I’ve just settled down with a fade haircut. It’s a simple, classy and timeless hairstyle. More importantly, it’s very easy to manage. Or sometimes, I don’t really manage it at all. (As with other things that come with age, my tolerance threshold for allowing my hair to look messy in the public might have increased just a little. Ahem.)

The fade hairstyle is the more generic brother of the undercut hairstyle. In fact, undercut hairstyle is a variation of fade haircuts, and there are many types of fades: high fade, low fade, regular fade etc. In essence, a fade haircut is a hairstyle with hair on the sides and the back of your head gradually tapered in length until the hair is completely shaven (or not, depending on your fade style.) The top part is where you can have fun – curly, straight, messy, wavy, spiky… you name it.

Another reason why I really love about fade haircuts is how they can easily smarten-up any man without too much changes and styling. See example below:
