How to Get Drake's Shadow Fade Haircut
Others have relatives or family members who know how to do hair in the home.
No matter how they get their hair cut one thing is for sure the right barber tools are needed to get the clean finished look.
Drake the rapper has a shadow fade and that means his hair is longer at the top of his head and then gradually gets lighter and shorter as it reaches the nape of his neck.
The sharp lineup is what makes the haircut live and it takes a skilled stylist to edge it up so that it is straight. The trick is in the razors and trimmers for a smooth blend of hair from top to bottom.
Black mens haircuts have stayed pretty much the same over the years and include many styles such as the dark ceaser, bald fade, temp fade and the afro temp.
You will want to first start with a clean head then the trimmng and shaping starts from the crown of the head the sides and temples to the nape of the neck.
The overall look is then dusted off and oiled down for shine.
Shadow Fade Haircut
You can ask for a low taper haircut or a low fade haircut they are pretty much the same with a few differences mainly with the side burns fading to a lighter hair shade.
Taper is when you just get the sideburns and the neck shorter than the rest of your hair, whereas a fade is usually done all over from top to tip.
The barber must use 3 to 8 guards for a high taper fade to get that gradual smooth look.
Beard and curly hair
