Modern life is hectic, and having flawlessly groomed locks isn’t a luxury that everyone can afford. But what if we told you that you could have a low-maintenance, fuss-free haircut that looks great and takes little to no effort each morning? You certainly can. Let’s talk about the buzz cut fade.
This contemporary variation on the classic buzz cut is a terrific way to reduce your style time to a minimal while still having a trim that’s anything from dull.
The fade variant, like the conventional buzz cut, is a notably short, punchy, and clippered all over trim. A buzz cut fade, on the other hand, provides contrast due to the elaborate fade method utilised on the back and sides, whereas a buzz cut is cut using the same grade all over. A fade to the back and sides not only lends a current vibe to the cut, but it also helps to bring more definition to the overall form, which is frequently lost when you stay to the same guard length all over. This is especially true if you choose a high taper or skin fade while leaving the hair on top of the head somewhat longer.
Although a buzz cut fade is one of the finest hairstyles available, it still demands a certain amount of boldness for guys who have never worn the look before. “It’s extremely usual for gents to panic, regret their decision, and believe it’s too much too quickly before opting to just grow it all back out,” explains Billy Coles, Senior Barber at Murdock London. “The benefit of including a fade is that you get a more complicated cut rather than just whacking all your hair off.”
The buzz cut is a traditional men’s haircut with short hair all around. Buzz cuts are usually done using electric clippers to “buzz” the top of your hair to one length. The buzz cut hairstyle can be worn on its own or with a low, mid, or high fade. As a result, the most common variant of this very short hairdo is the buzz cut fade. Finally, regardless of buzz cut length, the key is to think of really short hair!
Will A Buzz Cut Fade Suit Me?
The short answer is that a buzz cut fade will most likely suit you. If you want to be certain, determine your face shape and consider your lifestyle to determine whether or not this is the right style for you.
1. Short Buzz Cut Fade
This version is tightly clipped to keep everything as nice and tidy as possible. The hair is buzzed short on top and considerably shorter on the back and sides, with a little fade. Because the hair on top is so short, a skin fade is frequently applied at the back and sides. This allows the barber to preserve the fading appearance that comes with a length transition while keeping the hair incredibly short. Ask for a short buzz cut with a skin fade from your barber, and they’ll see you right away. Aside from regular trips to the barbershop to touch up your fade, you can pretty much leave it alone in terms of styling.
2. Longer length buzz cut fade
This buzz cut fade blends precise cutting with natural texture. A large amount of length has been left on the top, which runs well down the back and top of the sides, adding weight to the entire form. The fluffier hair on top accentuates its natural nature, which is discreetly emphasised by the dipped edge cut across the centre of the fringe.
3. Zero Buzz Cut
The zero buzz cut is a short haircut that requires no clipper guard and cuts the hair to the skin. A zero haircut, similar to a shaved head, is an edgy style that leaves a small shadow for a clean-cut appearance. A zero cut is reserved for men with a nicely shaped head and attractive facial features because there is no hair to protect you.
4. Mid-Length Buzz Cut Fade
If a short buzz cut is too harsh but you want to keep style to a minimal, this medium-length buzz cut fade may be more acceptable. It looks great on guys with thicker hair because it creates a firm form on top and a striking contrast against the fading back and sides. To achieve the look, simply request a ‘burr cut’ (a type of buzz cut between a 2-3 grade) with a fade from your barber. Let them know if you want to go the skin fade route. Because the hair on top of the head is still relatively short, no styling is required for this variation.
5. Afro hair buzz cut with waves and a fade
This is an excellent example of how a fade can improve what would otherwise be a mundane buzz cut. The fade here is smart and subtle, working in pretty low above the ears, but it makes all the difference in clearly disconnecting this area from the super-tight, uniform texture above.
6. Low Fade Buzz Cut
If you want a buzz cut that will make you appear more young and current, then a low fade will be ideal for you. If you have a receding hairline, this hairstyle will conceal any bald spots.
7. Longer Length Buzz Cut Fade
Do you want to customise the buzz cut fade? Keeping a significant amount of length on top allows for some style. Not only that, but it increases the contrast even more, emphasising the fading and providing a more dramatic overall effect. Explain to the barber that you want the top hair to be between a ‘butch cut’ (grade 4-6) and a high and tight – this will allow you enough length to put a bit of styling product through it if desired. To add texture to the hair, we recommend adding a tiny quantity of paste or clay.
8. Buzz cut skin fade with faded beard
Your hair will normally style itself when trimmed this short. The clipper work truly adds to the pzazz of this buzz cut fade. The skin fade, which is short and firmly clipped, separates the beard and draws emphasis to the sharp edges and crisp curvature. By following the natural line down and around the back of the head, the latter also lends equilibrium to the overall design.
9. Skin Fade Buzz Cut
A buzz cut with a skin fade is a popular haircut style because it keeps the sides short enough to contrast with the buzzed top. A skin fade haircut tapers the hair down to the skin on the sides and back. Guys can request a low, medium, or high bald fade and pair it with a number 1, 2, or 3 haircut on top. A skin fade buzz cut is a cool hairstyle that looks even better with some facial hair for a sexy look.
10. Afro Buzz Cut
Low skin fade haircuts are ideal for black men who want to change their appearance without completely changing their personality. This buzzed style can be tailored to look good on any face shape, whether you want an easygoing look or something more formal.
