A high fade hairstyle has the hair disappearing anywhere within a two-inch-high area below the top of the hair, hence the adjective “High” before the”fade” term.
This is a fade cut that is performed only with scissors. This cut requires a higher level of expertise than a clipper fade and is perfect for people who want a longer fade style.
In the classic fade hairstyle, the hair is tapered to the skin at the perimeter hairline and increases to approximately 1/2 inch length at the parietal ridge. The hair is most likely styled damp with a wax-based product for extra-firm hold and malleability.
