This hairstyle has been one of the most groundbreaking styles of the last years, worn not only by gentlemen, but also by many women with short hair.
The moment we decided to cut our hair is very personal. There are those who remain faithful throughout their lives or in very long stages in the same hairstyle. And there are those who like to innovate, dare with new designs and change their look whenever possible. These people are the ones looking for the latest trends, both in fashion and beauty. For them they are faded haircuts, fantasy dyes and even hair tattoos. Are you one of those who would launch with something like that? Discover what is the fashion style among men.

What is faded man’s haircut?
The faded haircut, also known as fade haircut is a short and very polished hair style that is fashionable this season among the male audience. As the name implies, it creates an effect from highest to lowest, with the longest hair at the top of the head and shorter towards the neck area, ending in a skin so intense that it is almost zero.
With this hairstyle, so popular among hairdressers these last years, you get faded men’s haircuts with different volume, which can range from a timider faded shaving to longer and taller hair. The objective is to create a visual effect that makes it taller and narrower, adding a few extra centimeters at the top of the head and decreasing them as it goes down towards the neck and ears.
Examples of faded haircut
Although the faded haircut is one of the most requested trends in hairdressing salons, we cannot arrive and ask our stylist for a faded hairstyle for men. The hair professional needs more information, as if we want it short, medium, long. Or how far we want volume. Or how much shaving we want the end. If we are not clear about all the information, we can find a result that is not to our liking. Therefore, we give you some photographic examples of how these haircuts are, so you can show them to the hairdresser.
Like any other fashion worth its salt, such as the return of sports shoes or brightly colored suits, this haircut has obsessed celebrities on the international scene. There are many actors, singers and celebrities who already wear this faded cut, demonstrating the power that a good change of look has. Brad Pitt and Cristiano Ronaldo are a perfect example of an almost shaved short fade.
Meanwhile, stars like David Beckham, Zac Efron or Justin Timberlake wear the longest faded haircut, with the proportionally cut sides but without getting shaved. That is, with a good length at the top and a brush cut in the lower area of the head. This is the ideal option to achieve an elegant, sophisticated and very careful look, since it gives the hair a lot more facilities and is much more natural than a thorough shaving.
Faded haircut for women
Faded haircuts are not just for men. Many women have tried their luck with them and say they never want to have long hair again. The truth is that if there is a year in which short hair has been imposed among the female audience, it is 2018. In many formats and variants, from the already famous bob at the height of the jaw to shaved as bold as the one of Cara Delevingne, the model.
Because we live an era in which canonical beauty stereotypes are fading and women no longer need to have long, silky hair. A trend that shows in the dress, makeup and combing.
They usually opt for more innovative styles, with a lot of volume at the top and even waves, curls and bangs. There are some that even keep the mane to one side and degrade the other to play with the proportions. Others degrade the back or the side of the pins, there are different options to play, try and have fun with a good change of look.
Female ‘Celebrities’ with faded hair
There are many actresses, singers and models who have thrown themselves to cut their hair with a feminine gradient. Lupita Nyong’o, Agnes Deyn, Cara Delevingne and Charlize Theron are some of them. Even the Spanish influencer Laura Escanes has dared with this look so launched and flattering, that leaves all the prominence in the face and remains many years over. Of course, the latter has done it with a few centimeters longer so that it is not so transgressive and rock and roll, but a youthful and very clear style.
Coloured faded haircuts
The faded haircut has the ability to be classic or very modern. We have already seen it with celebrities. Justin Timberlake’s style has nothing to do with that of the former Real Madrid player, although both wear the faded cut. This is because the more marked the fade is from the crown to the neck, the more modern and daring it is. Something that the millennial generation loves, taking these shaved areas to the extreme. How can they make them even more modern? With fantasy dyes of different colors, for both men and women.

In short, if you are looking for a good alternative for a change of look and do not know how to try your luck, the faded cut is an ideal option, especially in the case of men looking for a more modern and sophisticated style. And in the case of women you have to be very clear: this hairstyle feels great, but you have to know how to defend it with a lot of attitude because it is one of the most launched cuts of the latest seasons.
