This particular look is a high bald taper with a faded beard line up and curls on top. This a fairly common haircut, except for the faded out beard. Fading out the beard is fairly new trend that has been become more popular within the last couple years. It gives the client somewhat more detailed and clean look to their beard.
The curled style on top has been around for some time, but has become more popular with the release of a product called the “curl spongewhich I used to bring out the curls for this particular haircut. Instead of just shaping the hair out, now you possibly can add a finished curled look to the highest of clients with coarse hair.
What products do you recommend to recreate this look?
There are rather a lot of various products you can use throughout the service of this haircut, as well as products you should use to finish and style the client.
I recommend shaving gel to detail the beard and beard oil to finish the detailed beard. It’s also possible to use hairspray to lock in the curls on top after curling it, and naturally aftershave and maybe oil sheen in order for you to give the client a shiny look. Also take note if the client has gray hairs so you need to use a semi-permanent dye or an enhancement to get rid of the gray. A technique I take advantage of with the dye or enhancement is applying not just to the gray, but around the client’s hairline to create a more sharp and full look.
