It’s the question we’ve all been dying to ask, are skin fades still on trend?
Lifestyle YouTuber Robin James gives us the lowdown on what once was a beloved haircut trend for many men and YouTubers alike.
Since the start of quarantine and the closing up of barbershops and salons, men have been stuck with two hairstyle options. Growing it out or cutting it all off.
This has caused many to leave the skin fade behind and accept new haircuts that adapt to the current situation.
So the question remains, are skin fades still on trend? In his video, James answers with a yes and a no. He believes fades are still alive, but with longer lengths than the usual skin showing cut.
“Corners and edges are softer, which [basically] means they’re still fades, but they’re less harsh. So there’s less of a juxtaposition of the length on the top and the length on the sides,” James explains.
At the end of the video, James concludes that skin fades may be a wee bit out of fashion, but if it suits you, keep it. There’s no need to keep up with trends when you feel good about the way you look.
