A great way to play around with such a short afro haircut is to leave the top part of your hair long enough that you can actually grow a mini afro. Luckily for you doing this is pretty easy, and all you have to do is not touch the top part, but continuing to fade out the sides and the back.

To give some texture and volume to your afro make sure to give some extra form to your natural curls with the help of hair moisturizer and an afro comb to really style it.


3. Pompadour Fade

Like we just said, this high cut bald fade hairstyle is really all about playing around with the top part of your hair since the rest is so short. We recommend you to cut down your hair first and then simply bleach just the tips of the top part.

Once you bleach them you can either tone them down with purple shampoo or apply an actual hair dye. Style with some hair gel and push them upwards and you’re done!


5. Skin Fade

Baby bangs aren’t a usual hairstyle on men, but when done right they can look incredible. Let the high top bald fade get almost to the top of your hair and then ask your barber to let the rest of your hair untouched. Ask them to cut the front part short enough to give you baby bangs.

To mimic this caesar hairstyle you have to make sure the top part isn’t as long as in the previous hairstyles, then simply style your hair pushing it to the front part of your head to fall right on top of your bangs.


6. Men’s Platinum Blonde Hair with Pointy Tips

If you want to take this hairstyle to a whole new level you can always bleach your hair and then dye it icy blonde for a more ‘rebel’ look. However, make sure to ask your barber to really take the high bald fade way past your ear.

Last, but not least, style your hair to the front of your head instead of the back and, with some hair gel, mess the top part just a little it for a messy look.
