Ways How To Wear An Undercut Fade

Today’s man has many choices when it comes to picking the hairstyle. Certain styles resemble each other somewhat but have essential differences. These differences are important to know when you want a particular haircut. When you want the undercut fade or any other fade haircut, you need to able to effectively communicate your wishes to your hairstylist.

So, exactly what is a fade with an undercut? First, let’s determine what an undercut is. An undercut is where the hair is kept long in the front and shaved on the sides. It’s ideal for the hot summer months and/or when you don’t want a lot of hair around your head. An undercut also accentuates your facial features.

And what is a fade? A fade, as the name implies, gradually changes the length or tapers until it fades into the skin.

Now, what is a fade with an undercut? A fade undercut, as it is also called, is where the undercut tapers and fades into the skin. But how is that different from a taper fade? The differences, again, are subtle. Undercut vs Fade: the undercut taper is done quicker than the fade taper. It looks great on those who want to grow out their hair on top and slick it back.
