68 Gorgeous Mid Fade Haircuts For Men to Try Out

A mid-face haircut is a taper cut that lies somewhere between a low fade and a high fade. Medium fade haircuts land in the middle of the side of your head, just above the ear and below the temples.

This haircut has quickly grown to become one of the world’s most popular haircuts because it needs medium to low maintenance, looks extremely cool, and works on all hair types. Whether your hair is thin, thick, straight, or curly, you can find the best mid-fades for your choice.

In today’s post, I bring to you more than 60 mid-fade haircut ideas that will easily flatter your fashion style and overall looks. These amazing haircuts include comb over, slick back, pompadour, quiff, textured, or long top. Without further delay, below is an enumeration of the best mid-fade haircuts for men.

68 Gorgeous Mid Fade Haircuts For Men

1. Classic Taper Fade Haircut

Taper Fade Haircut


Classic, clean, and adaptable, the taper fade hairstyle is characterized as a crowd-pleaser. It is sharp, even though not severely so, which means it will look and work as well on your office desk when you are off duty. The taper fade goes from nothing – to – a blended length.

The taper will start from the nape of the neck then extend to the parietal point, progressively getting darker as you take it higher. The parietal point is the top side of your head that is also defined as the widest region of your head before the head starts to curve away.

The cut is an amazing look for anyone that needs a smarter hairstyle and would like it to look a bit more natural.

2. Low Fade Haircut

Low Fade Haircut


A bit less subtle compared to the taper fade, the low fade places a little bit of more skin on the show, giving one a clearly defined finish but is still nothing close to a skinhead. The Low Fade will start very low, with skin showing at the very bottom of your head. It then starts blending up from that point upwards. It also follows the natural curvature of your head.

The low fade is one of the best ways to showcase your hair with more surface or attain a curvy look on top, such that the hair locks are often left a bit longer on the top side for styling.

3. Combo Over Mid Fade

Combo Over Mid Fade


This comb-over hairstyle exhibits a dramatic undercut and a larger-than-life mid-face hairstyle. The vintage style of the comb-over is further softened by a modern touch of the fade and the undercut style.

This enumeration would be incomplete without a dreadlocks haircut. Guys with afros can also pull out this mid-fade hairstyle look. To sport the look, let your dreadlocks fall from the top side to the sides. Only trim the back and the sides for a faded look.

23. High Top Fade

High Top Fade


Also regularly referred to as a Cameo Cut, the High Top Fade is a fade and flat top trim combo that harks back to an era of B-boys, boomboxes, and basketball shoes. This hairstyle was popularized by the early/funk hip hop group that had the same name.

24. Pompadour Mid Fade

Pompadour Mid Fade


More noticeable than the low fade, but not as scalp exposing, the pompadour is expectedly among the most famous styles men love to sport. It is also ideal for fashioning a harder skin color blend line if you would like to take a more old-fashioned approach to your fade.

The pompadour fade starts just at the point above your ears, making it idiosyncratic yet still quite adaptable to the different styling approaches out there. This hairstyle also comes with many styling options, including the longer quiff, where more length on the upper side is required.

25. The High Fade

High Fade


Just like the Fresh Prince, but a bit bolder, the High Fade (also regarded as a tight or a high) is a high contrast hairstyle where most of your hair on the sides and back of your hair has been shorn back to your skin using the foil shaver.

When sporting the High Fade, your barber does not take the natural shape of your head into account. The barber creates a baseline around the region from the upper recession to the flower crown. This cut results in a very stylized finish that is anything but subtle. It will surely turn heads everywhere you go.

26. The Scissor Mid Fade

The Scissor Mid Fade


Are you not keen on clippers? Or do you want a style that will undoubtedly fly in a smart-casual office? Then, in that case, feel free to swap a buzzed fade for this sleek, scissor-cut hairstyle.

The Scissor Mid Fade is a basic fade that uses scissors instead of clippers to cut around the nape and progress upwards the taper comb to get your hair as close to the skin as possible. This hairstyle is the best sport, particularly when you need a custom shape to suit your specific head shape.
