With the right kind of fade, you can make a simple haircut look more dramatic and more interesting. A good fade not only leaves your hair nicely trimmed and shaped, but it can also give your face a simple but flattering new look.
If you have really thick, curly, and wild hair, a fade haircut is just what you need. It controls the volume at the sides and at the back, while keeping the length short. Most fade haircuts also allow plenty of room to style your hair, because hair at the top is usually longer and fuller. You can style it any way you want, or just leave it as it is since most black men have already nice and full hair.

Fade haircuts are very popular because when combined with a different haircut, the hair looks even more badass. If you think pompadours are only for straight to wavy hair, think again. With just the right styling products, even a pompadour is possible.

You will need a pomade that has extra strength hold, as well as some hairspray with the same kind of locking power. This way, you can keep the style in place the entire day without the need to retouch.

What can be a more badass haircut than a fade with a Mohawk? There’s simply no other way to describe it. The closer and the higher the fade, the more dramatic the Mohawk becomes. This Mohawk is made even more dramatic by the hard part just off the middle.
For the Mohawk itself, the top hair is definitely not going anywhere. It’s thick, tall, and tight, and you only need to shape it by following the natural shape of the head, from the top all the way to the base of the hairline. Very little styling is needed because the hair can pretty much hold itself without any kind of hairstyling products.
