High fade comb over has been one of the most popular hair trends for men in the past two years along with short fade comb over hairstyles as well due to their versatility.

How to Do High Fade Comb Over

This hairstyle is very similar to the skin fade comb over, which is basically a haircut in which the top part is usually longer than the sides, which tend to be shorter or trimmed down.

Now, the difference between the two of them is actually quite easy to spot. If you want a classic high fade comb over, you need to ask your barber to lower down the sides of your hair low enough that there’s a visible difference between the top and the rest of the hair.

Make sure the line that divides where the long hair stops and the short hair starts is visible, but not harsh (like it would happen in the skin fade style). Basically, you want that line to have a little bit of longer hair, but that acts as a transition between the top and the side parts of your own hair.

Last but not least, this type of haircut is known for having the longer side of the hair styled either to the side or to the back. So you need the top part of your hair to be long enough that you can actually style it however you want to.
