This hairstyle exemplifies what the high fade does best. Though the hair on top is short and even, the fade makes it seem longer, creating a nice contrast.
Generally, high fades look the best when there’s an interesting style on the top of the head to compliment it. Here, an angular fringe provides that balance.

This looks like an expertly dyed french crop! A sharp high fade on their naturally dark hair makes total sense to show off those highlights. We’re also looking at you, Bad Bunny vibes!
Thin hair is always underestimated how well it can be tweaked and that can turn into something very cool like the one here. The top is slightly French Cropped where it fringes towards the left and the taper fades come in hot. Especially high fades come to the rescue and steal the show.
Blowouts are always fun but this is another level. The pocky texture is usually laid down but this is a blowout and not to mention the high fade makes the sides clean and exaggerates the mullet. The mullet is also pocky which makes the look unified and trendy.
Curls by itself is an attention grabber and all of that puts curls at a top tier but when layered with some sleek undercut with thin tapered fade. That with angular lineup puts emphasis on the details. The curls are highlighted with a puffy texture with a cleaner approach.
See that faded line up with a small slit shave. The sides are taper faded with the top being subtle brushed up. The pocky texture with a thick afro vibe makes up for a great occasion. The thin slit makes it all for the party. The fade goes up high all the way to the lineup which makes it fun.
Well, this is one of those hairstyles which has a lot of good elements like the hard part with sides being faded high. All of that with the top being side-swept with thick volume. That side-swept fringey texture is what makes this a wholesome look with a slight widow’s peak, peaking!
Side-swept style has a very retro undertone but that is what makes this one a special one. The top is puffed and the widow’s peak makes it fun, all of that plus the undercut on the sides with that twin shade fade makes it perfect. The lineup is quite angular too.
What can we possibly talk about that angular undercut taper line, artistically enough that acts as a plane for fade to start. All of that is so thoughtful hairstyle with the top being short and subtle. This is a very future inspired hairstyle with a beard to balance it all.
The simplicity of this hairstyle is what makes this a cool one, especially since the beard is so thick that it totally balances the look. The sides are high faded with the top being all laid and slightly brushed to the side to add some life to it. The beard blend is possible because of that temple fade.
Classic high faded side with slight drop texture with the top being tight curled to pull that subtle yet fancy look. The clean-shaven look makes it a perfect style for formal as well as informal occasions. The lineup and hairline are very vivid with the lineup being very sharp.
Mullet is always a cool retro look but the way to pull it off is what makes the difference. The top is brushed up with tossed texture with sides being high faded is what pops it up. The slightly curled texture makes it more fun and adds up to the style.
