Black men must consider their place of employment and also their sense of individuality when choosing a hair fade. A hair fade is a style where barbers leave a portion of hair on the head and trim some hair closer to the scalp in various degrees, which gives the illusion of a fade. There are fades that are more conservative and others that are more creative. A licensed barber can professionally cut hair into your desired fade with well-trimmed edges.

Afro Temp Fade

An Afro temp fade leaves a generous amount of hair on the head that gradually fades into the scalp closest to the temple area of the head.

Bald Fade

The bald fade leaves a shorter amount of hair on the head, about 1/2 to 1 inch, that either a small comb or brush can go through. A larger portion of the hair is faded into the scalp from the sides and the back. This more conservative style is perfect for professionals, those in the military or corporate America.

Low Medium Bald Fade

The Low Medium Bald Fade style is similar to the bald fade, but more hair is left on the head. A small comb and brush can be used with this hairstyle. There is more hair left on the sides and back of the head. The hair is shaved halfway up the back and side of the head.

The Temp Fade

The temp fade is maybe most recognised among black men and people familiar with ethnic hairstyles. The hair is cut evenly on the top and sides of the head. The hair is then cut closer to the scalp on the temple area of your head, toward the end of your forehead, closer your eyes and near your ear.
