Fade and cone
Often interchangeable with the term “taper” a bland simply means you want the hair on the side of the head, gradually shorter, from top to bottom. The process of fading from one length to another is usually achieved when using hair clippers. Because the bland comes in a variety of styles, it is important that your barber make the kind of bland haircut that you need.
One crucial factor is where your fade begins. For example, you can request your hairdresser enter a low, mid or high fade. In addition, you can decide how short your fade will be by fading for a skin (soon) or any other length (eg 1/8 inch). Just remember, you do not even have to have a faded haircut – maybe you prefer your hair all the same length on the sides.
A high fade
Bald / Skin Fade
The undercut hairstyle is a very popular modern haircut where the sides and back are trimmed or shaved. The undercut is not faded and the hair on the top is left much more. The hair on top can then be formatted in a number of ways, like combed, swept aside, slicked back, brushed, or pompadour or great. Ultimately, the undercut is one of the coolest “short on the sides, long on the top” haircuts you’ve got these days.
The pompadour is a type of undercut hairstyle that continues to have short sides and a long peak. However, the pompadour is unique as a large amount of hair swept up into the front to create a “pomp”. The hair just above the forehead is the highest point and gradually sinks towards the back of the head.
The separate pompadour specifically refers to a hard part in the hair from the side up.
The great thing is similar to the pompadour, but instead of brushing the hair back, the great styles put the hair forward. Usually paired with a bland on the sides, this great haircut is very versatile and can be left chaotic if desired.
Hopefully, with these men’s haircut names and terminologies in mind, you’ll never have to suffer through another bad hair day again!
