1. Comb Over + High Fade

Ideal for men with short hair, this high fade and short hair combo is a classic and handsome choice. Start with a hard part and comb through the entire length of your hair from one side. If you have a cowlick, you can tame it by smoothing the wayward hairs in the direction it naturally follows. Don’t be afraid to add texture with a pomade, giving your hair a more punch and volumes. This hairstyle is a great choice for those who work in an office environment, but it’s bold enough for you to rock in a bar or club.

2. Comb Over + Mid Fade

Finding the perfect balance between the high fade and the low fade, the mid fade starts halfway up your neck. Like the taper, the medium fade offers a layered haircut, leading to long hair on top. For a low-maintenance style, keep the length short on top and use gel to style it into place. If you’re looking for something with a little more work, you can expand it, add texture with pomade, and add a hard part for a vintage edge.

3. Comb Over + Low Fade

Unlike the high fade, the low fade starts lower than the ears. A rebellious contrast to the gentleman’s hairstyle, the low fade is a classic choice for the office but edgy enough for a night out on the town. If you have shoulder-length or longer hair, switch things up by styling your hair in a pompadour, slicked back, or leaving it like a classic comb-over.

4. Comb Over + Taper Fade

Keep the fade smooth all the way to your neck by tapering it. A taper fade is a bit longer than a traditional fade and is a great alternative if you’re trying to switch things up a bit. To achieve a taper fade, step away from the clippers and focus on the scissors. Finish the look by combing your hair to one side using gel or pomade, to hold it in place all day.

You don’t have to go overboard with styling product to achieve this look; a medium hold gel or pomade is all you need. Bold, fresh and casual, the Skin Fade Comb is a perfect combo for those who want to mix up their look.

What is a comb over haircut?

A comb over haircut features a side part, with the hair combed over the head, from side to side. This can be a great style for hiding a receding hairline or just channeling some vintage vibes.

Are combs fashionable?

Comb overs are a classic style that never really come out. They look great on most face shapes, are easy to maintain and simple to style.

How do you ask for a comb over fade haircut?

Ask your hairdresser for a hard part on your favorite side with at least a few inches on top. Then you can choose to pair it with a high, medium, low, or side taper fade. Try to pack reference photos so you can show your stylist exactly what you have in mind. Pinterest is the perfect way to create a board of styles you love, and you can quickly scroll through before the clippers hit your head.

Which fade is best for the comb?

Any fade will look great with a comb over it; it’s just a matter of choosing a style that suits your face shape. Oval and square faces look great with most fade styles. High, soft fades add extra definition to round faces, while a short fade works best for rectangles, so you’re not adding length. Triangles and hearts can rock a low fade; however, they will want to avoid very short sides higher up. Finally, diamond faces look great with a low fade, but ideally want to retain a bit more length.
