Are you ready to elevate your style game with a high fade haircut? Look no further than the expertise of Linda Miller, a seasoned stylist who’s here to help you ace the high fade. In this exclusive interview, she shares her invaluable insights on skin types, face shapes, and hair textures, helping you select the perfect high fade haircut to complement your unique features.

Skin Types and High Fades

For individuals with a darker complexion, Miller recommends a low, mid, or high fade if they want to keep a significant amount of hair on top. However, individuals with lighter skin tones should avoid high fades and opt for a mid fade instead. She advises individuals with a lighter skin tone to consider a skin fade if they want the hair at the sides and back to be almost as short as it is at the top. Miller points out that the skin fade is best for people with a chiseled jawline or a strong bone structure.

Face Shapes and High Fades

When it comes to face shapes, Miller suggests that individuals with an oval face shape can pull off any style of high fade. Those with a diamond face shape should avoid a high fade, as the contrast may be too extreme. For individuals with a square face shape, she recommends a mid fade to maintain a balanced look. For those with a round face shape, Miller suggests a low fade to avoid adding unnecessary width to the face. Miller emphasizes the importance of consulting with a professional stylist to ensure that the chosen style compliments your facial features.
