Shadow Fade Haircut
A shadow fade is a haircut that is mostly done by men and there are few women who like to style their hair in this way to look unique. It is one of the most popular hairstyle among African American men. In this hairstyle, the hair will be longer on top of the head and gradually gets lighter as well as shorter as the hair comes close to the nape of your neck.
To get this hairstyle, first plan about cutting the hair as it must be cut in a proper way. Start trimming the hair on top using sharp scissors and try to use the scissors on longer parts of your hair. Cut the hair upwards from bottom of your hairline with hair clippers and after reaching the fade line try to cut at an angle by bringing the clippers towards you. Continue cutting your hair upwards at an angle when fade lines are reached and change clipper gauges to a shorter comb. Then brush through the hair to remove the excess hair and trim the hair around your ears using scissors. Use shorter comb gauge to fade your hair lighter and shorter which will make the scalp slightly visible at the nape of your neck. Now use a straight razor without a gauge to trim hairline in a straight line which must be continuously straight all around your head. Finally mist the head with an alcohol solution to prevent bumps.
