New clients are sometimes confused about the differences between mid fade and a high fade haircuts
What is a Mid Fade haircut?
The cut in this post is a mid fade. The fade starts from skin mid way up the scalp. The mid fade haircut has been growing in popularity around the world. Also known as a medium fade, the men’s mid fade starts halfway up the sides and back, resulting in a faded hairstyle that is a balance between the low and high fade. Because the mid taper fade offers a more gradual blending of the hair, it’s perfect for men who want a modern yet professional cut and style.
What is a High Fade haircut?
A high fade haircut is a hairstyle where the fading of the hair begins and ends high up the back and sides of the head.
This helps to make the hair on the top of the head look thicker and fuller.
The hair on the top of the head can be as long as you like with a high fade haircut. The best way to personalize a hairstyle is to use strong and bold styling, More subtle styling is less likely to be noticeable in a High Fade hairstyle.
Sometimes a tightly faded Mid Fade can look a bit like a high fade depending on the lighting conditions, the fade on this cut starts in the middle.
