What do I tell the barber for a fade?
Talk to the barber in detail about your fade before they start cutting.
- You can say something like “I want a temple fade with a line in the back, but I want to keep it longer on the top.

It means that the side of the hair is taken down to the skin to bald. The skin fade is the most defined fade however as it’s very clear to see hair going from bald to say a 0.5 into a 2 at the top of the sides.

Can you ask Barber to thin hair?
If you have thick hair and wish to reduce its volume, try asking your stylist to thin out your hair. With a pair of thinning scissors, your stylist can cut some strands short but leave the rest long. This will allow your hair to lay flatter naturally and can tame even the thickest of locks.

Can I show my barber a picture?
There’s a catch though — the best photo you can bring in to show your barber is a picture of yourself after a haircut that you really liked. A picture of someone else’s hair doesn’t take into account your hair’s individual traits, like thickness, texture, and hair line.
Is a taper a fade?
A taper is when hair gradually changes from one length to another. A fade is a shorter taper that blends or fades into the skin —hence the name.
What is a zero fade?
A zero fade is one of the shortest possible haircuts as ‘zero fade’ cuts the hair down to the minimal length. There is usually still a slight shadow, so it is not a completely clean shaved look, rather a little stubble look on your hair.
Can you get a 0.5 haircut?
0.5 Guard – This is pretty much as close to skin as you can get. 2 Guard – Still short, but with a little bit of length. If you like your hair to be nice, clean and short but want to still have a tiny bit of length, I often recommend going with this number. 3 Guard – Pretty much the same thing.
Should I get a taper or a fade?
When you’re deciding between a taper vs fade cut think about your face shape and which haircuts tend to suit someone of your stature. If you’re looking for a safer, inoffensive cut then taper is more likely to be the one. Whereas if you’re looking for something with a little more edge and bravado, consider a fade.
