Over the past few years, fade haircuts have gained a lot of popularity. Among them, the burst fade Mohawk may be the most famous. This burst haircut is also known as the South of France hairstyle.
A famous singer Usher Raymond introduced this hairstyle, after which it became widely popular throughout the world. The burst fade puts a twist on the classic Mohawk worn in the past.
The classic Mohawk was merely a strip of hair in the middle of the head. On the other hand, the burst fade with Mohawk is much more. It is essentially a taper fade mohawk that curves around your ears.
The term ‘burst fade’ comes from the fact that the fade bursts outwards as it approaches the top of the head and the neckline. So, the length of your hair gradually tapers away.
