The low top fade
Inspired by icons of rap.
Popular among rappers (some have rocked this style for years) the low fade haircut is a classic style that requires the skill of a hairstylist who knows the right way around a pair of clippers.
Also known as a low taper fade, the low top fade keeps the lower sides of your hair as close as possible to your skin, getting thicker as you go up.
Just like the mohawk, the low top fade is an enduring symbol of inner city life and urban rebellion. Perfect if you need to rock a style on the cutting edge, but want to keep things classic.
HOW IT BEGAN
The low fade has been popular since the early 2000s and originated from the high top fade, seen amongst '90s hip hop stars. Like older bro the high top, the low fade has become a classic style.
This style works best when your line up is on point. Get your barber to keep it neat and put plenty of emphasis on the flat top.
