About Skin Fade
A modern take on the age-old crew cut, the skin fade is a timeless style that keeps you looking fresh and sharp. Kept short and extremely tight at the bottom, the length gradually gets longer at the top of the head. The skin fade is a fresh, detailed look that’s perfect for thicker hair but looks sharp on all hair types. You’ll always look polished with this cut.
Our stylists at IGOR’s will generally start with a zero blade length on the clippers and fade the hair into whatever style you are after. It can look a little harsh for a few days but will also last longer than a tapered or longer fade. Our stylists may even use a straight razor or electric shaver around the perimeter of the cut.
How do you get the skin fade haircut?
A skin fade can be achieved by cutting the hair shorter as it moves toward the neck. However, some haircuts require the hair to be the same length all around the head, skin fade haircuts demand the hair to be cut at decreasing lengths.
For the skin fade haircut, it’s essential that you come to IGOR M Salon’s experienced professionals who are experienced with this particular cut.
Regarding the hair on top of your head: It’s important to note that the type of skin fade haircut you get will dictate what you tell your stylist. For the sides and back, however, it’s almost always the same. You’ll ask our stylist for a fade. Specify the starting point (depending on the exact hairstyle you choose), and tell your stylist you want your hair to fade into your skin.
