3. Extra Long Fade

The long fade is a good cut for guys who love length, but maybe not enough to go for a complete long haired look.  Tight fades that buzz all the way down to skin can let in a little more contrast than you may want. Just keep the edges of your hairline faded for that perfectly cut look.

5. Faded Edges

We love the look of a longer on top haircut with faded edges. This look is extra high contrast making it look particularly dashing. Wear this cut with a classic quiff, or as a tousled crop. You can style both with the Axe Smooth Look: Shine Pomade.

6. Bald Fade

The bald fade haircuts for guys basically means the fade goes all the way down to your skin. This makes your fade (and hairline) end a little higher up. We like bald fades paired up with a buzz cut like our model above, or an extra long pompadour.

7. Temple Fade a.k.a the Brooklyn Fade

This too cool for school fade cut is focused on the temples only. It makes your front hairline look extra smooth and can even out a mismatched hairline. We especially like this haircut with a curly high top. It’s the kind of cut that just turns up your style a good few notches.

8. Scissor Fade

For a much longer faded look, go for the scissor fade. This one is done with, you guessed it, scissors. It makes sure that your long, straight hair sits at a comfortable and obvious angle. This cut is best suited to dudes who like to keep their hair on the medium to long side.

9. Receding Fade

If you’re dealing with a receding hairline, try a receding fade. Chat with your barber to start your fade based around your hairline. This makes the fade much more flattering and can give you a huge boost in confidence.

10. Medium Cropped Fade

For a longer look try this cropped fade. Styled with a long pomp and an undercut, this look is all about some awesome volume that you’ll wear on top of your head. This style lets the bottom half of your hair steer the focus to the top, while making sure you get that clean cut look.
