How To Cut A Skin Fade With Combover

Not to be confused with the ‘style of denial’ used by balding men to hide thinning hair. The traditional Combover dates back to the early 1900’s and is a simple evolution of the short back and sides. Categorized by a longer length of hair which is swept over the top section of the head and cropped tightly above a faded bottom section. In this particular style the fade is taken down to the skin at the base of the hairline and finished off with a straight razor to complete the bald fade.

Ambassador Shane Nesbitt walks you through the process of how to achieve the perfect Bald Fade with Combover. Shane’s meticulous technique breaks down the fade into a small incremental steps and numerous clipper changes to ensure a flawless gradient.
