Danny Welbeck is a famous English footballer who plays for the national team of England and also Manchester United. He is known for his distinctive hairstyle called the High Top Fade, which became popular during the late 80s and early 90s, especially among rappers and the hip hop and urban contemporary musicians.
It is mostly adopted by African American people because the texture of their hair, which is thick and curly, is suitable for this purpose. Although this hairstyle was out of fashion during the late 90s, in the last couple of years it has seen a comeback and people like Welbeck have popularized it in recent times.
