Fresh Bald Beard With Fade: If you are going for the fresh to death look, then this one is for you. You get a touch of class with a mustache; the beard is longer under the jawline and around the chin area. The bald fade comes in at the jaws providing a striking and clean finish for any occasion.
Bald Fade Bottom: This is a nice simple cut where underneath the chin and the neck are shaved entirely bald. The mustache and hair on the cheeks and jaw are cut down low giving you that sleek, stylish appeal.
Tapered Cut: You’ve got to have some skilled fingers to get this look right. The beard is faded from the sideburns to just below the ears and comes out thicker and longer around the face. It is this decrease in volume that provides the edgy tapered look.
Black Beard: Black men with afro textured hair, this one’s for you. The jaw area is faded disconnecting the beard from the hair, and a thin, defined mustache is created to frame the lips.
Hair Level: This is another bearded style that works well with afro textured hair. As the name suggests, the beard is cut down to the same level of the hair, but only around the cheeks, the beard is faded out slightly bushier as it gets towards the chin.
The Medium Fade: This beard looks very much like the goatee, but it’s set apart by that faded tapered look. The outline of the beard is trimmed down to a medium height which makes it blend well with the precision fade creating the illusion that the hair and the beard are disconnected.
The Textured Fade: If you are looking to give your beard a bit of texture, try the textured fade. The hair around the jawline is given a sharp undercut and then faded out to create an impressive beard line.
The Jaw Line Perfection Fade: This faded beard style indeed does make you appear to have the perfect jawline. The hair is cut into a goatee and faded out from the hairline to just before the goatee starts. This is a very defined cut and will make you look very sharp.
The Taper Beard Fade: This beard works well for curly haired brothers. The beard is disconnected from the hair, and then the beard is tapered all the way down to the chin.
Skin Fresh Fade: The beard is cut down so low that it transitions into a skin fade. This makes for a nice combination creating a textured and stylish look.
Double Fade: This is another popular combination style, where the bald fade and the skin fade marry together to create the double fade. The bald fade is underneath the chin, and the skin fade runs from the sideburns to the cheeks.
Military Style: If you are not a fan of the military look, I wouldn’t advise this cut. It gives the face a hard and bold look that truly reflects the personality of the wearer.
The Slight Fade: This bearded style works really well with a faded haircut. The trick here is to keep the length of hair on your head and your beard the same.
The Low Fade: This is another popular faded bearded style, you get the combination of the goatee with a fade around the cheeks and jawline. The hair on the cheeks is slightly disconnected from the hair on the goatee creating a really edgy look.
How to Fade Your Beard
Not every man can afford to go to the barbers every time he needs a trim or a shape up, so here are some simple steps to assist you in creating that perfect beard fade.
Step 1: You can’t fade a tatty looking beard, so get that in order first, so ahead and trim your beard to the length you want it.
Step 2: Set your trimmer to a 2 or 3 and start trimming from below Adam’s apple up towards your neck and jawline
Step 3: Now its time to chop them cheeks! At this point, you will need to decide whether you want a natural fade or crisp lines? For a more natural look, take the guard off, for some crisp lines, use a tight edge from ear to ear and around the cheeks.
Step 4: If you’ve got a mustache, trim that down too, be sure to get rid of any hair growing over the lips. The aim here is to make everything look nice and neat. You will also want to make sure that your mustache and beard are the same lengths.
Step 5: Now that your beard is all nice and even, it’s time for the fade. Find a spot near the jawline where your beard is the longest. Put the trimmer onto one of the shorter settings and give the area a one-inch trim.
Step 6: Shorten the trimmer and go up another inch.
Step 7: Keep fading upwards until you get to your hair, shortening the trimmer as you go along
Step 8: Switch sides and repeat the process.
There’s no point in getting a perfect beard style if your hair is looking a mess. Whatever style you choose, make sure you do it justice by getting a dazzling hair cut to go along with it.
