The blowout fade is a men’s short back and sides haircut with a fuller top, which is usually styled to produce a wind-blown look. Sometimes called the Brooklyn Fade, due to its popularity in the New York suburb among the hipster residents, the blowout fade works for both casual and formal looks.
Its hipster based origin also means the blowout fade works well with beards, but due to the very short fade area around the ear to the temple, the look requires a high level of barbering skill to work effectively and give it some real panache.
MHDPro has a range of online barbering courses with a CPD Certificate of Recognition endorsed by VTCT and iTEC. The Men’s Faded and Tapered Collection includes a number of fades for intermediate barbers and hairdressers, which give you the skills to build and adapt the haircuts to suit your individual clients needs and personal style.
The blowout fade haircut, or Brooklyn fade is a popular men’s haircut that incorporates a short back and sides close crop or fade, with longer hair on top. The top of the fade can be slicked and dressed, or more often, is blow dried to give the windswept blowout look. Sometimes called the Brooklyn blowout, due to its popularity in New York’s hipster suburb, this hairstyle has become popular around the world, combining a modern aesthetic with traditional barbering techniques.
MHDPro’s Men’s Tapered and Faded Haircut Collection features a variety of tailored haircuts in this style, from respected barbers including Amsterdam’s New York Barbershop, Shanghai’s Gary Woo and London’s Stelios Chondros.
The collection demonstrates both high and low fades using scissors, clippers and razors with variations of finishes of the longer hair and a tapered neckline. The finished hair can be styled with a range of men’s dressing products for a sophisticated business or evening style, or given a blowout for a more casual street look.

A technique for cutting hair. Clippers are used to cut hair following the movement over top of a comb.
This is also known as blunt cutting. This is the most common way of cutting hair. Parallel to the index and middle finger; straight across.
A haircut in which different lengths are created without being blended together.
Going from a shorter length to a longer length gradually with no appearance of lines or steps.
Graduation is the build-up of weight, within a shape or on an external line, through the use of over direction.
This is a technique where the comb is used as a cutting guide for the scissors.
A neckline that has soft outlines that follow the natural hairline shape. The outline appears to fade out with no harsh lines visible.
In lesson one, Ivan Rodrigues of the New York Barbershop demonstrates a gentleman’s haircut featuring pointers on low graduation, round layering, thinning shears, razor thinning and disconnection. The result is a tapered haircut with a low fade that perfectly chimes with the times.
Ivan continues in lesson two as he teaches a razor parting haircut featuring pointers on clippers-over-comb techniques, guards, blending, thinning and placement of a line. This builds on the skills earned in lesson one, with a tapered haircut and a mid fade complimented with a pronounced razor parting.
Lesson three, with Gary Woo, is a flat graduated haircut with disconnection. In this lesson Gary delivers an asymmetric internal shape with advice on masculine head shapes, finger angle, over-comb techniques and tapered outlines. The result is a high fade haircut with multiple styling options to suit any occasion, such as slicked and smart or a high Brooklyn blowout.
In lesson four Stelios Chondros demonstrates how to create a short and stylish variation of the Brooklyn fade using square graduation with a disconnected parting. The final result is a square, polished, masculine shape with a regency fringe for maximum length and versatility.
And finally in lesson five Jason Verhaeghe of the New York Barbershop teaches a conventional razor fade. The tutorial features advice on clipper type and size, guidelines, dexterity and scissor-over-comb techniques. The result is a modern update of traditional men’s haircuts with the option for slick business styling or a Brooklyn blowout fade.
I have been wanting to find a place where you can learn online, and then I found MHDPro. I have learnt so much - from the way you stand to the way the sections are done – it all matters. I love the step by step learning.
You guys are my number one site. No site ever helped me as much. I have a career at a top salon in Montreal all thanks to you. People are on Youtube and taking workshops but MHD is a billion times better.
Once I've mastered a cut or a technique it's mine for life at a price that could not be matched anywhere else. Thank you MHDPro.com. Your value is immeasurable.
I have visited numerous sites in the last few months to assist me with my hairdressing course. MHD is the most informative, easy to follow and interesting site of any of them.
