    How would you describe this look and what’s your favorite thing about it?

    This is a textured gentleman’s cut. My favorite thing about this style is that it can fit most men. Also, in my opinion, this cut is timeless.

    Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

    I would recommend Baxter of California products. I like the Hard Water pomade or Hard Cream, depending on what the client prefers in regard to shine.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look fits the modern male who wants something that is easy to style. To keep the fade clean, it usually suits someone who comes for a cut once every three to four weeks.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    My best tip is to consider what you are confident in. Also, know that this look is low maintenance, but not no maintenance.

    How would you describe this look and what’s your favorite thing about it?

    This is called a taper fade. It is also faded from the sideburns to just in the back as you see in this picture. I love the shaded look to this style and the way it blends. Its dark edges give you a really smooth and soft look that stands out, but also brings out the rest of the cut.

    Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

    The only product I use is Coco Butter Oil Sheen. You can use any oil sheen, but I prefer the Coco Butter because it works well and smells great. My clients get a nice fade and they smell good too. That’s enough to make anyone feel new and refreshed!

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    To me this looks works best for anyone as long as they like it and have an interest for the style. I can and have made this work for all types of people and styles, from straight and course hair and blonde to dark.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    My best tip for someone getting this hairstyle is ask yourself if you’re ok with a faded look. Look for pictures of a fade like this on hair that is the same color/type as yours. That always seems to help people decide if it’s for them or not. Most people who haven’t had it tried it out and loved it. Just give it a try! It can really stand out and make a difference in your hairstyle.

    Also, normally this looks starts with a zero but it can also be started with a one or a two. That’s called a light taper. The one you are seeing in this picture is called a bald taper. Tapers are the way to go. I love them!
