Cut high fade with french crop
In a french crop, the hair is directed towards the forehead and maintains a slightly longer length in this area, with a straight cut. This is a long-lasting, low-maintenance style.
Caesar cut with fade for men
Although the Caesar cut and the french crop They are very similar, the difference between the two is the finish and the type of fringe. In this case, the locks go to the front and to the sides, with sharp and asymmetrical tips. Also, layers give hair texture and movement.
Cut pompadour with high fade
Here two classics merge, and the result is as sophisticated as it is elegant and attractive. You only need to reveal the skin and add volume with a view of the sky to obtain a radical change, perfect for work meetings and other formal events.

How to do a ‘high fade’ cut?
Achieving a perfect transition from the temple to the nape of the neck will be your goal, and to achieve this, you need: a clipper, a comb, and a mirror.
- Start at the sides, taking as reference the midpoint between the hairline and the eyebrows.
- Mark an initial line with the machine, from the right side to the left, circling the head.
- Remove the hair from the mark to the nape of the neck. Of course, keep in mind that the highest number will leave the hair shaved, so be very clear beforehand if you want to show the skin or prefer a short length.
- From that point, shape your cut, oscillating with the numbers on the machine.
- Set your cutting tool two numbers down, to subtly fade.
- Use it up and go down the numbers to the most open to finish the design successfully.
