Bringing the fade higher up creates a little more of a “flashy” look. What’s important here is to make sure it’s not so high you’re unable to pull off a proper fauxhawk. When fading, make sure your fauxhawk is well grown before you create the fade.
3Faux Hawk High Fade with Beard
Adding a beard to your high fade will give you a strong appearance yet keep the sharpness and modern look of a faded fauxhawk. When you’re growing out your beard, it’s important to keep it well groomed and grow it no further than half way up your ear.
4Faux Hawk Low Fade
Creating a fade that starts lower down on the head and gradually gets longer as it approaches the fauxhawk will give off a more conservative look. It doesn’t have the flash of a high fade, but also allows you to maintain the slick hairstyle.
