Low vs High Fades

For example, the low fade tapers shorter about an inch above the ear, and can sometimes curve from your sideburns around the ear and down to your neckline. However, the mid fade tapers about an inch or two above that, around the middle of your sides. Most low and medium fades are types of drop fades, where the taper curves around the ear and drops lower. If you can’t envision it, there’s an example below.

Finally, the high fade starts around your temple or the corner of your forehead. Unlike the traditional undercut, which is just one length, the high fade then gets shorter on the sides. If you’ve opted for a skin or bald fade, then the cut will fade gradually down to your skin.

Low Fade vs High Fade Haircuts

Between the low and high fade haircuts, neither one is necessarily better than the other. The only reason to choose one men’s fade over another is personal preference – it just depends on what look or style you like. Your barber won’t care either as both types of fades require the same amount of work and are trimmed short around the sides.

If you’re debating on whether to get a low vs high fade or bald vs taper fade, just remember that any kind of fade can be combined with any of your favorite “short sides, long top” hairstyles. Check out the best low and high fades below!
