Skin high fade
Basically slicked back hair with extra volume, this works for both guys with thick or thin hair, and with the right styling technique your lighter colored hair will look amazing. Here the sides are cut into a skin fade, about an inch above the hairline all around. The effect is a fresh and clean style, with retro roots.
Styling – The key is to brush or comb your hair into the desired shape, after applying volumizer to damp, and hot blow drying your hair into place.
The biggest advantage of the undercut is the huge flexibility this cut gives you. From modern undercuts to the classic ones, the length variation on the top side is what you want to focus on, make sure to tell your barber exactly how you would like for it to be done.
Styling – To style your undercut, start by slicking your wet hair either to the back or the side according to your preference, after that, while blow drying, use a wide-tooth comb for the manipulation of the waves. The idea here is to achieve a noticeable contrast with the hair on the sides of the head.
