    i’ve been enjoying my fade since i got rid of my long hair.
    but i wouldn’t do it again if i didn’t live with a barber, its a pain in the ass.

    it’s easy for barbers, faster for customers (lazy/adhd ridden brains), can look ok as it grows out unless you get a version you need to maintain, evolution of the undercut, black culture/men’s self-care trends, reaction to the shaggier look that was popular before, list goes on

      No, it doesn’t. It actually does the opposite. A bald spot with a fade underneath just looks like a butchered fade haircut that cut the back top way too short. Then you immediately realize that it’s a desperate bald dude instead.

    >until very recently, you were a wigger if you had a fade vs a taper.

      wow no shit its alain delon. fade probably looks better with metrosexual beard, while left is better if clean shaven. and most people dont look that good with clean shaven face?

      you could just get a layered cut ?

      just sayin, fades are the normiest, wagecuck cut at this very moment. unoriginal and uninspiring

    collapse of the high street + western economic stagnation alongside the rise of middle eastern oil wealth has lead to a relative wealth for the middle eastern working classes, who are able to move to the west and become small business owners.

    Empty stores + western reluctance to become business owners + middle easterners eager to become business owners in a fairly easy to master skilled job = turkish barbers + a customer base who’re happy to go along with the styles offered

    I always got a fade since the late 90’s early 00’s with that bowl cut combo just because it was neater, now I’m just balding

    Maybe because it adds more weight to the top of your head, creating the illusion of an inverted triangle and making your jaw look more chiseled.
    I rarely see fades around anymore tho, where I live only ghetto muslims and gypsies still wear them.
