In this type of hairstyle, the hairs on the back of your head increase in length from top to bottom. The hairs at the top of your head are left to be longer than those at the back of your head so that they can be lifted in a Faux Hawk style. The lifting of the hair is what gives this style its Mohawk look. In case you want to wear this style on your own without visiting your hairstylist, you should use a small amount of deluxe pomade. You should apply the pomade gently on the hair and then lift it to form the Faux Hawk style.

#2 The High Taper Fade

In this style, the hairs get faded with the skin at 2 inches or less from the top of the hair. Although anybody can get this taper fade, it looks good on people with black hair. What makes it look good for people with dark hair is the fact that their hair matches their skin tone. Just like most other fade styles, the secret of getting a perfect high taper fade is using a small amount of good pomade. Pomade will hold your hair tight after the barber has done his magic on you and will also give your hair some nice extra shine.

#3 Low Taper Fade

If the faded length from the top of the hair is more than 2 inches, then this type of fade is known as the low taper fade. In this style, the hairs disappear an inch or so above your natural hairline. After getting the cut, you should clean your hair with a good shampoo to get the best results when you style it. Dry the hair with a towel and then style it how you like. Use hair gel to keep your hair in place when styling. This fade will also look good on people with dark hair, but it can also look good on a person with a slightly curly hair.

In the Temple fade style, the hair disappears low like the Low Fade but what makes it different is that the transition between hair lengths is more abrupt and hence more evident and clearly visible. This fade is also known as Afro Blow Out, Brooklyn Fade or simply as Blowout. Due to the appearance of this fade, it is suitable for any hair color and skin tone provided it is done correctly by a skilled barber or hairdresser.
