Bald Fade Haircut

Simple Sleek Stylish

The bald fade haircut features longer hair on top and shorter hair on the back and sides, where the bottom of the hairline is clippered down to the skin. This bald fade is combined with a flat top, when the hair on the top of the head appears flat when viewed from the front or side. Flat tops and bald fades are great for both textured and non-textured hair.

5 mins

Start with dry or damp hair. Brush through hair with a pick to detangle. For tighter curls, apply a gel, curl enhancing cream or serum and scrunch or twist into hair.

Apply a styling cream to damp hair. Blow dry your hair with medium or high heat, lifting at the roots to create volume. Finish with pomade or paste, pulling sections of hair together to create definition and texture.

What to tell your stylist

Love this haircut? Here's what to tell your stylist so you can get this look.

I’d like a bald fade haircut. I'd like to leave the top long enough to style with a little paste or gel, then gradually fade down through the back and sides. I’d like to clean up the back of the neck so the hair is even across the back.”
