Very quick and detailed tutorial on how to give yourself a fade haircut, AKA the “high and tight.” Great introduction for novices who don’t want to watch a long video.
NOTE: This video focuses on the sides and back. For the top, I recommend buzzing to an even length like me, visiting your barber (can’t beat a good barber’s results), or watching another tutorial on full haircuts.
Also, practice makes perfect. For your first fade, try something longer than bald as your shortest setting. (If you have long hair on top, 1/4″ is a not-so-scary place to start.) And please don’t try your first fade before a wedding or a job interview. 🙂
