Destination: High style.

What happens when you mix a mohawk with a fade haircut? You get the South of France haircut! A South of France haircut typically involves having super low fade on the sides of your hair which almost looks like a clean, bald-ish fade; however, many men have taken this look to new heights.

There’s always more than one way to wear a look. It’s all about finding the hairstyle or haircut that fits your personal style. Some men like their South of France haircut with curls; some like it with twists, and some like it a little grown out with twists.
