Undercuts and fades have been in for the last couple years, so it’s important to note the difference between them. An undercut is very short on the sides and long at the top, keeping a high contrast in between. A fade is a style where the hair, well, fades gradually from the bottom up.

No doubt you’ve seen these before. Pompadours were first popular with greasers in the 1950s, but they’ve come back with a modern twist. A pompadour is characterized by hair that has been slicked back with a large puff in the front.

Though a quiff is similar to a pompadour, it actually borrows characteristics from a mohawk. Quiffs start long at the front and short in the back.
