The shadow fade is a popular fade haircut, especially for, but not limited to, afro hair. While there are many variations of the shadow fade haircut, the defining feature is within the gradient of the short fade up to the longer top hair. Some fades feature a very pronounced short section, or even skin-tight section, with a very gradual fade from long to short. Other haircuts have a smooth gradient from long to short, while others still have a definite line between the long and short sections. The shadow fade generally will consist of very short, to a slightly longer mid-section around the temple, then blending into the longer top section. This mid-section density resembles a shadow around the top of the fade, hence the name.
Gary Woo teaches an example of a shadow fade in his haircut tutorial in the MHDPro Men’s Tapered and Faded Haircuts Collection. This collection features five tutorials demonstrating a variety of fades and tapered neckline haircuts from expert international barbers and educators, including Amsterdam’s New York Barbershop, Shanghai’s Gary Woo and London’s Stelios Chondros. This collection is perfect for introducing you to fades, which you can adapt to suit the requirements and suitability of your clientele.

A technique for cutting hair. Clippers are used to cut hair following the movement over top of a comb.
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.
