The sides and back of the head are tapered down to the skin, creating a close-cropped or buzzed effect that gradually fades into the hair on top of the head. This type of fade is typically achieved using clippers and various guard sizes to create a seamless blend between the shorter and longer sections of hair. The close crop skin fade is a low-maintenance style that can be easily styled with a bit of texturizing paste or clay. It’s a sleek and modern option that can work well for men with a range of hair textures and face shapes. It’s also a great choice for those who prefer a more understated look or who want to keep their hair short and easy to manage.
