In keeping with popular footballing hairstyles of the 2010s, the shaved hair designs and fades trend is less about a rigidly defined hairstyle and more about individual expression. The foundations for this hairstyle come from infamous cuts that typically boasted length on the top of the head with contrasting colours and shaved patterns at the side of the head. To master this style, the hair should be fade cut on the back and the sides of the head. Individual patterns can be cut into the fade to express personality while coils on top of the head should be gently twisted into sections using a light hold wax to create definition and texture.
LANDRY’S BARBER’S BRIEF: Shaved hair designs and fades
- Using your fingertips, gently massage Head & Shoulders into the scalp using vertical strokes from behind the ears, up to the crown of the head and over the top.
- Start the hair fade with the clipper set on 0, gradually increasing the clipper length setting to achieve a smooth graduation from the scalp to the hair.
- Using a comb and clippers, reduce the length on the top of the hair then cut the sides square to give unruly coils a more uniform appearance.
- Using the clipper set on 0, cut parallel horizontal lines on one side of the hair to create unique scalp art.
- On the opposite side of the head to the parallel horizontal lines shave the lines of the star into the hair then carefully paint the hair inside the lines with bold dye to showcase your personality.
