Low Top Fade Hairstyle # 2

A low top fade haircut can be your go-to hairstyle to wear to school or to the office. It won’t fail you when it comes to glitzy events and formal occasions, either. It’s a simple and functional hairstyle, but it can be sexy and fashionable should you require it.

It looks flattering on most guys and most facial shapes, but it does tend to make an elongated face look even more elongated. One way to solve that is by growing some facial hair to create the illusion of a shorter or more angular face. Keep the beard short, but you can wear it thick or sparse. You will find that it makes a nice balance to your closely cropped hair.
