High Skin Fade


High Skin Fade

Hair by: Johan Ruiz | Photo © Precision Barbershop

For this haircut, Johan performed a high skin fade. In this type of cut, the hair is cut to the skin about half way up the head (a trimmer or straight razor is used to achieve the closest cut possible) and faded into the longer length on top. The top is styled with firm hold styling gel to add separation and texture.
