On this Wahl course you will learn one of the most important but one of the hardest techniques to preform to a high standard in men's barbering - The Fade The Fade haircut would have previously been seen as an edgier hairstyle that may not have been accepted in the workplace but fashion has seen a resurgence of the Fade. From being the main style of the military in the 40's and 50's to Will Smith rocking a Fade in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air the last few years we have seen many gents rocking The Fade and looking good.
What is a Fade? Tapers, Skin Fades, Ghost Fades ,low, medium and high Fades its easy to get confused. The Fade haircut is an aggressively tight taper of gent's hair. Hair at the sides and back is cut as close as possible with clippers whilst leaving the hair long on top. Sounds simple ?....... The Wahl educators will take you through the different techniques you need to master The Fade and how to transition the hair from one length to another. Tapering and blending using the different clipper guards and how to Skin and Ghost fade without a guard. This course is a must for anyone serious about Barbering and Gents hairdressing.
