Mens Haircuts: Best Fades
If you’re looking for a versatile haircut for men of all ages, then the best option is the classic fade. This hairstyle originated in the U.S. military around the 1940s and 1950s and has been a hit amongst men since. For anyone who is not familiar with the fade, it's a short haircut that tapers and blends the bottom and top of your hair.
Usually, men will leave some hair on the top of their head and fade out the sides, but what makes this hairstyle so versatile is that there are so many styles you can pull off with this one cut. Men can choose from a variety of fades like: a high-top fade, a mid fade, a low fade, or a skin fade. It ultimately depends on your hair length.
