1. Clean your hair.

We’ve said it before, and we will say it again: All good hairstyles start on clean hair. Use a wash and care system that’s designed for your hair type and particular needs. Looking for some hydration for your dry hair? Try Axe Max Hydrate 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner for a formula that will hydrate and moisturize your hair.

2. Blow-dry your hair.

After you wash and condition your hair, use a blowdryer to dry your strands. For your fade style, try blowdrying your hair upwards as the heat works to create length.

3. Use paste.

Take some hair paste and rub it through your hair. Try out the Axe Urban Look Messy Paste and how it works to boost the natural texture in your hair.

4. Rake and squeeze.

Rub the product throughout your hair as you rake and squeeze from the front to the back of your fade haircut.

5. Done!

That’s it. Rock your awesome fade confidently.
