First things first, it’s important to know the different haircut names. There’s nothing worse than giving your barber a bad description and having to grow it out under a baseball cap.
Here are a few basics to get you started:
This cut looks sharp and is low maintenance. Double win. The term “fade” and “taper” can be used interchangeably. It simply means that you want the hair on the side of your head to get shorter gradually from top to bottom.
This comes in a variety of styles, so it is important to tell your hairdresser that type of fade you want. You can request that he give you a low, mid or high fade. You can decide how short your fade is from asking for skin (bald) to any other length (1/8 inches)
This is a modern look where the sides and backs are clipped short or shaved (with no fade). The hair on top is left longer and it can be styled in a number of ways, making this a versatile hair cut. You can go for a comb over, swept to the side, slicked back, brushed up or styled into a quiff.
This is a type of undercut hairstyle that still rocks the short sides and a long top. This is unique because a large volume of hair is swept upwards in the front to create a pomp. This requires a bit of maintenance.
This is similar to the pompadour but instead of brushing the hair back, it styles the hair forward. Coupled with a fade on the side, this is a versatile haircut that can be left messy if desired.
If you area fan of the classics, this one is for you. This short buzzed haircut is defined by the blade attachment. You could go super short with a # 1 or choose something longer than # 4. This is the ultimate wash and go.
