Don’t Be Afraid To Fade

For men, haircuts are like visiting a fast food joint. You arrive; pick a number and length, and the barber whips up your look. There’s never a consultation or gossipy banter. Its just sit, snip, pay, and leave. – When it comes to hair, men are afraid of change; they know what works and they stick to it.

Newsflash, change is good, and hair grows back (hopefully). So the next time you plop your mop into the barber’s chair, tack this magical word onto your “order”: Fade.

Contrary to the name, the fade is here to stay, and the best part is there are many ways to pull it off.

If you prefer a short and messy look, give this skin fade a try.
