Black men often opt for a high fade haircut, featuring complete disappearing of hair much higher than the natural lines of hair growth at the temples and back of the head. With a low fade hair disappears about an inch above the lines of hair growth, while a regular fade is something in between these two. As a rule, when you are going to have your first fade, they recommend to start from its regular type.
Tightly coiled natural hair can also look fabulous in high top fades where the top of your hair is standing in a vertical position, while the sides and back are trimmed to fade with a polished finish. More abrupt transitions between lengths can be achieved with temple fades.
