#22: High Top Fade

The high top fade is an awesome choice for those who like to have a little extra length on top. It also works very well for those who want to grow mass amounts of facial hair like full beads. The contrast from the top and the shaved sides provides a beautiful canvas for facial hair.

#23: Traditional Line Up

A traditional line up is a type of skin fade that is common amongst ethnic men. It basically includes the razored hair line to maintain either a square or rounded shape. Meanwhile, the actual length of the hair is kept to a minimum.

#29: High Top Widows Peak Skin Fade

The high top widow’s peak is a good fit for men who are starting to slightly recede at the hairline. The hair on top is short enough to maintain a neat look and long enough to show off some texture and contrast with the closely clipped sides.

#33: Tapered Mini Afro with Side Part and Skin Fade

This is not your traditional skin fade hair cut because only the temples are slightly faded. The rest is a small, well rounded afro with a dashing side part. This looks best on men with wider face shapes but could potentially work on anybody! It’s a crazy cool hairdo.

#34: Sleek Fade with Side Part

The sleek hairdo with a side part is very handsome and does well to suit mature men. It is very polished and put together, while allowing you the freedom to get a little messy. With a good comb and some hair gel, you can rule the world! Or if you wanted to just rock it natural, the hair would fall in a very casual but cute way.

#35: Messy Fade

This messy fade is great for those guys who want a chill, low maintenance hairstyle that still looks nice. For this style, it is good if you have natural straight hair to encourage the spikiness. Ruffle the top of your hair with a product every morning to make sure it has that tousled appearance.
