The razor fade haircut, sometimes called the straight razor fade, is a type of skin taper fade cut where a guy’s hair on the sides and back is shaved. Razor fades make a stylish addition to any modern men’s hairstyle because they provide a disconnected, high-contrast look. What also makes the razor fade awesome is the fact that barbers use a straight razor to taper your hair down to the scalp. And like other kinds of faded haircuts, men have a choice of a high, medium, or low razor fade!
