Comb Over Fade Haircuts
Comb Over Fade Haircuts are most popular amongst men who are tired of wearing their hair long and wavy, but not long enough. These men have a slim, clean face, sleek hair and a wardrobe full of shirts, jeans and shoes. Instead of growing out their hair they want to have a shave that isn’t just a shave, but a change in cut and styling that enhances their look. Many men prefer this style for that reason alone, as the styling will really enhance your natural features and make you stand out from the crowd.
The first thing to keep in mind is that if you do decide to go with this cut, you will need to find a good razor. These are often called “straight” razors because they are designed to cut straight across the length of your hair without any curling or blow-drying. Having one that is straight, but they can be used to shape your hair as well, thus adding some character to your style. If you are going to use one of these razors you need to keep in mind that they are generally not as sharp as a traditional razor, so use them sparingly and as necessary to get that perfect cut you are after.
You need to figure out how to best manage your hair. You need to have the right length on top of how straight and sleek your hair is. Most men will opt for a close cut, while others prefer to keep it longer and add a little edging to it. You will need to figure out which cut you like best and go from there.
It’s a good idea to let your hair air dry before doing your hair with a straight razor. This will give it time to cool down and help it look great once it has been done. Next you will want to clean up your face before going to bed. You will want to use a fresh clean towel to gently rub your face to get all of your dirt off of it.
One thing to keep in mind when choosing a razor to use is that you do not want one that is “thinner” than the actual comb you are using. You do not want the blades to be a fraction of an inch off of the comb you are using, and at the same time you do not want it to be too sharp. You want your razor to fit nicely between your fingers so you can remove it with ease.
You want to use a soft hair brush to start, since this will help you with the combing. Hold the comb tightly at the root, but do not pull it too hard. Take your time combing it through your hair until you reach the ends. Once you have your ends combed you will want to leave them wet for about 5 minutes.
Use a flat iron to style it and finish off with highlights if you feel you need to. This is a great hairstyle that is very versatile and can be worn both on and off of your head.
