The mid fade offers a great all around look for any guy
There are some aspects of men’s hairstyles that simply look fantastic no matter what, and the mid fade falls into this category. It’s not over the top and dramatic, but it’s not subtle and boring, either. Who knows––your next style just might be on this list.
Thin Hair with A Shaved Strand
Men with thin hair often experience difficulty finding a good haircut. One trick is to keep the hair short. Here, the hair rests naturally, and the mid fade provides balance. (You can also opt for the shaved line.)
Tousled Asian Mid Fade
On the other hand, if you’re Asian and have thicker hair, you might choose a style like this one. The hair retains volume and texture on top, and the sides are mid faded for neatness.
Casual Brushed Up Top
For a nice everyday style, this casual brush up is great. With just a little bit of styling, you can achieve this messy, medium volume look.
Messy High Volume Top
Mid fades also pair nicely with longer hair. Whether you have straight, wavy, or curly hair, you can rock this style.
Messy Curls with Mid Faded Line Up
Here’s another excellent option for curly hair. The top of the head stays curly, but the sides are shortened with a mid fade and line up.
Brush Up Mid Fade
This brush-up haircut can give you the classic “rolled out of bed” look while staying stylish. The mid fade here is just a bit higher than normal to accentuate the brushed up hair.
If shorter haircuts are more your style, you’ll like this faded line up. It’s a low maintenance hairstyle that’s still high contrast thanks to the fade.
Clear Mid Fade Plus Dyed Highlights
Here’s an eye-catching style that adventurous guys will love. The mid fade is complemented by both dyed highlights and a shaved line that runs across the side of the head.
Brush Up with Clean Mid Fade
Here’s a tidier version of the brush-up style. The hair is short and textured, and the fade blends the hair neatly so there aren’t any sudden changes in length.
Fine Curls with Vivid Mid Fade
Curly hair comes in all shapes and sizes. For guys who have smaller curls, this hairstyle is a nice trendy option.
Dyed Short Waves with Mid Fade
Once reserved exclusively for the avant-garde and boy-band wannabes, bleach blonde hair on men has come a long way. This is a great change for those who want something new but not so out there. The brightness in the hair will lighten up facial features, and the dark roots in the mid-fade make the look a bit more carefree. To prevent any Eminem comparisons, keep tones cool or grey by washing hair with a purple shampoo.
