Disconnected Tapper Fade Haircut

A taper fade haircut is what one used to think of men’s haircuts. However, they are becoming quite popular with women as they are a great style for the woman who wants a trendy short style.

A tapered cut is one in which the hair is longer on the top and then gradually shorter on the sides and back. A fade haircut basically has no hair on the back or sides. Fades can either be a high or short fade. A high fade usually “fades” away about 2 inches for the top which a low fade, or a taper fade, fades gradually down the back and sides and then completely fades at the nape and above the ears.

Taper Fades:

  • temp fade
  • side part taper fade
  • disconnected undercut fade

If you want a style that’s totally off the charts, a disconnected undercut might be right up your alley. This style is longer that top and immediately “disconnects” as opposed to a gradual fade. The sides are radically shorter than the top. Check out these disconnected undercut fades to see if this cutting-edge style tickles your fancy!
