Fade With An Expert
A barber with an expertly steady hand is an essential operative in styling a fade or a comb over fade. Sculpture is the overriding attribute of the fade hairstyle, while layered clipping is the finite requirement for a comb over fade. In a fade hairstyle, the form, rather than the strand style, is the strength of a cut. Hair with texture and curl works best with a fade hairstyle, as the more texture and the tighter the curl pattern, the more easily sculpted the hair. In contrast, flow and precision in the undercut is the overriding requirement for a comb over fade. While both the fade hairstyle and comb over fade undercuts can be wider or narrow, in both hairstyles it is most common to see a two-inch undercut. A creative and skilled barber can also cut designs into the fade or into an comb over fade hairstyle. Both fade hairstyles and over comb fades are responsive to an array of artistic hairstyle options.
