This is probably one of the most common type of fades on waves hairstyles ever, and the reason so many people get it, it’s because it’s very easy to do and to maintain.

That being said, if you want this hairstyle, make sure to ask your barber or hairdresser to leave the very top part of your head with more hair than the rest, making sure the sides and the back are properly shaved and faded enough that the difference between the two sides is noticeable.


2. Big Waves + Temp Fade

Not all fade haircuts have to be extreme, you can still get this 360 waves hairstyle with a low skin fade, and we are going to show you to achieve this look.

First off, the top, sides, and part of the back part of your hair should all be the same length so you can get the waves on. Then, you should ask your barber for a very subtle fade that starts almost at the very bottom of your head, just to give your haircut some more texture and definition.


3. Curly Taper Fade

If you are looking for a more subtle taper fade with waves, then this is it. This time, your natural curls should still be visible even with the waves, instead of being so straightened down.

Once that’s tone, your barber should fade away the sides of your head, creating a separation between the long, wavy part of your hair, and the bottom, shorter part.


4. Classic Fade Haircut with Waves

This one is pretty similar to the style above, however, this time, the waves should only be done on the very front part of your hair instead of all around it, leaving the back untouched.

It is very important that just the sides are faded and cut down shorter than the rest, keep in mind the fade should start on the front part of your hair and stop right next to the ear.


5. Low Fade
