So you've perfected your fade. Great! But what happens when your client wants to grow in a short fade? Growing in fades gracefully can be a challenge due to the extreme difference in hair lengths, but with these tips, it doesn't have to be.
“Transitioning to a longer, brushed-back style takes time and patience, and there will definitely be an awkward phase to push through as hair grows,” says Jesse Linares of the Sam Villa ArTeam.
Linares shares tips to help barbers and stylists convince clients to stick it out for the long run of a seamless, long, loose style.
This sort of styling creates behavior in hair, and going from wet to dry with the right product will provide longer-lasting control than just finishing products like pastes and pomades. Save those for last, to provide the final touch to the established look.
