There are quite a few reasons why the low fade haircut is one of our favorite looks of this season. Aside from being a modern, on-trend style to consider, this is a look that always looks fresh and clean and therefore requires minimal styling. It keeps you cool in the summer and blends seamlessly into your facial hair in the winter and is truly the ideal style all year round.
Are you considering trying out the low fade haircut? Read on for 10 ways to wear this look:
Low Fade Haircut Inspo
From pompadour fade styles to low fade haircuts with a beard, check out our tops styles to try.
1. Spiked Up
Spike up the top of your low fade haircut with a little bit of hair gel. Dove Men + Care Well Defined Taming Gel is one of our favorite long-lasting gel options for guys.
2. Slicked Back
Grow out the top of your strands and play with different lengths to give your fade some contrast. Comb the longer layers back into a smooth and clean look for easy styling. Add a touch of shine to your longer hairs by combing SheaMoisture Men Argan Oil & Shea Butter Defining Cream throughout. This helps keep your hair in tip-top shape as far as styling goes. It also helps make hair super shiny!
3. Pair It With a Pompadour
Double up on trends and wear your low fade haircut with a pompadour. This style is great for work and the weekend, and transitions seamlessly from one to the other.
4. High-Top Fade
Mix two styles into one by pairing a high-top fade with a low fade haircut. This look shows off the natural height and volume of your hair, but allows your style to be a low maintenance cut.
5. Salt and Pepper
The low fade haircut works for guys of any age and looks particularly great on salt and pepper hair. This particular style makes it easier to blend the gray hair coming in with your natural color.
6. Full Beard
Consider how your facial hair will mix with your low fade and try a full beard for major contrast. Opting for a low fade haircut is a great option if you want to make your beard the focus of your look.
7. Combed Through
Give your strands a classic combed-through look by working AXE Smooth Look: Shine Pomade through your strands. Just a little bit of this pomade will give your hair a subtle yet long-lasting definition.
8. Closely Cropped
Keep your style short and cropped for a nice, clean look. This is a great option if you want to stick to a professional-looking style.
9. Closely Shaven
A closely shaven beard is the perfect pairing for this look. It allows your low fade to transition back to thickness with a filled-in trendy beard.
10. Barely There
A barely-there fade still counts as a fade, right? Go for a very short look that extends into your beard with a subtle low-cut fade in between.
Whether you choose a barely-there fade haircut for minimal styling or opt for a textured low fade, there are many ways you can sport this cut.
