It’s the least high top fade-looking haircut from the bunch, but it has all the elements of a good and classic curly high top fade. You can see the tall and upright curly hair at the top. Plus the sides and the back are nicely and flawlessly buzzed.

The key to getting this kind of hairstyle is to have really long and thick hair at the top, so that it’s easier to shape and style. The top hair extends all the way to the front, creating a curly quiff. This adds more coolness and awesomeness to the hairstyle. It’s a highly styled haircut, so you can choose to wear a very small amount of styling product just to keep the style in place.

Now this is what we’re talking about when we say curly high top fade. There’s a nice and solid fade going there at the sides and at the back. But the real focus is the awesome top hair that simply looks electrifying. To achieve this kind of hairstyle, you must have really long and tight curls, which you can easily tease with a comb so that it looks fuller and bigger.

The higher the hair, the more dramatic it becomes. Make sure that you have some extra hold hairspray handy so that you can easily apply on your hair if you want the curly top to last the whole day, and even longer.
