This haircut consists of a very short taper that “fades” into the skin — thus giving this haircut its name. You can ask for your fade to end high on the sides and back (High Fade), low (Low Fade), or at the temples (Temple or Brooklyn Fade).
The Comb-over Fade consists of a fade on the side and back but with longer hair on top. The hair is then “combed-over” to the side. This cut is popular with older men, especially those thinning hair. However, younger generations have put an updated twist on this cut by slicking it back instead of parting.
