Fade cuts became popular not long after crew cuts were being worn. Fade cuts are simply hair cuts in which the hair gradually increases in length from bottom to top. These cuts offers a low-maintenance, hassle-free option for many men.Â There are some types of fade haircuts, and one of them is the bald fade haircut. The bald fade cut has been popular since the 1980s.
This type of fade cuts is a popular haircut among men, where the hair is cut extremely close to the head from the bottom of the hairline, half way up to the crown of the head. The steps below explain how to create your own bald fade. Â The bald fade haircut leaves a shorter amount of hair on the head, about 1/2 to 1 inch, that either a small comb or brush can go through. A larger portion of the hair is faded into the scalp from the sides and the back. This more conservative style is perfect for professionals, those in the military or corporate America.
The bald fade haircut is easy to perform on coarse and extremely straight hair. People with curly hair can also opt for this haircut if they are comfortable with the same. People with fine and thin hair lack the potential texture which is required for variations of fade cuts. You can easily style the hair with a little bit of pomade or mousse.
