Nowadays, men have a huge variety of haircuts to choose from, but there’s one particular high bald fade hairstyle that’s become very trendy lately. And today, we’re going to show you the best top 25! Let’s begin.
Coolest High Bald Faded Hairstyles
These are the most popular high top bald fade haircut for men. Have a look and get one as your next look.
1. Classic High & Tight Fade
This is a classic example of high and tight bald fade hairstyle. Very, very short fade on the sides that go all the way up past the ears, and just enough hair on the top part of your hair for you to comb.
To style it this exact same way, make sure to help yourself with a little bit of hair gel and a blow dryer, then simply comb it to either side of your head and you are done! The walrus mustache made this haircut so classic.
2. Drop Fade with Short Afro
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.
If you already have long hair, then try fading out the sides and the back part of your head (ask your barber to do this) but leave the top as long as it currently is.
Then, to style it, straight it out with a blow dryer + flat iron and push it to the back. if you want this hairstyle with a high bald fade to hold on throughout the day make sure to apply either hair gel or hair spray.
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.
7. Soft Blonde Highlights for Men
We recommend you to let your hair grow long enough before you go the barber and ask them for a high bald fade haircut, this way, you’ll be able to actually get the soft highlights done during the same appointment.
You can leave the top part as long as you want, but to mimic this hairstyle correctly, make sure ONLY the top center part is long, and as you go to the back it starts to get shorter and high fade away.
8. Classic Comb Over
This is a much more classic bald cut high fade comb over hairstyle for you to try. First, part your hair slightly off the middle to one side and comb the rest of your hair to the opposite side.
You can help yourself with some hair gel, a round comb, and a blow dryer to get your hair to fall into a ‘wave’ like hairstyle. Last, but not least, apply hair spray to make sure it will last you throughout the day.
9. Short Top with Bald Taper Fade
If you don’t have long hair, don’t worry. Once you’ve asked your barber to fade out the sides and back parts of your hair, you can simply style the top part with your fingers and a round comb. Make sure to push the top front part upwards to create the same style that’s on this picture.
10. High Temp Fade + Waves
This is a great option for anyone who has short hair and wants to play around with this bald high fade haircut. Once you’ve faded away from your sides and back part, make sure to put on a weave overnight or a couple of hours throughout the day. Remember, how marked your waves come out will entirely depend on how tight you put your weave.
If you have long, curly hair and you already went for the high cut bald fade you can ask your barber to give you twists -or short dreadlocks, if you want to- on the top part of your hair. However, make sure you can still see the contrast between the top and bottom part!
12. Messy Top
Last, but not least, you can leave the top part of your hair long enough that you can, later on, turn it into a messy hairstyle. To style, this high blad fade simply washes your hair, apply some hair gel and push your hair up and down with your own hands to create texture. To top it all off-dry it out with a blow dryer and you’re done!
