A high-fade haircut is a popular haircut for men. It’s a high haircut on the sides and fades into the top. A high fade haircut can be done with short or long hair, but it’s most familiar with medium-length hair. When you get this style, your barber will use clippers to cut away some of your hair and then shave off any remaining stubble around the back of your head where there is no longer any hair.

Most men who choose this style like to have their sideburns exposed as well as some lines above their ears; otherwise, they prefer to cover up their sideburns completely by having their bangs grow out long enough so that they can sweep them over those areas instead of having them shaved off completely (which would make things look even more masculine).

Choppy Edgar Haircut

The scruffy is a short hairstyle worn with or without facial hair. This style is messy and unkempt, but not intentionally; it’s just how the person’s hair looks. The scruffy typically looks best on men with round faces because of the contrast between their full cheeks and narrow chin.

This hairstyle is often cut close to the head at one length without any layering or tapering. It may be worn in any length from around 1 inch (2 cm) up to about 5 inches (12 cm). With this haircut, you should avoid using styling products as much as possible so that your hair retains its natural texture.

Widow’s Peak

A widow’s peak is a central parting that extends from the forehead to the nape of the neck. It looks like an upside-down V and is usually caused by genetics, but it can also be caused by aging. If you have one, your genes are likely strong to begin with, and you’re likely in good health.

Widow’s peaks can appear on people of any age, but they’re most common in young men. These people may find themselves unable to grow full beards because their facial hair grows at different speeds than their head hair — and often only grows downwards instead of upwards as head hair does.

So, you want an Edgar haircut? Excellent! Edgar haircuts are back in style for kids and adults alike. They’re easy to maintain, look fantastic, and complement almost any face shape. The classic Edgar haircut features a bowl-cut top with extra shaggy layers spiking toward the front or sides of the face.

A short fringe may also be included. Over the years, however, this iconic look has been adapted into many different variations. In this post, we’ll go over each of them so that you can find the perfect Edgar haircut for your tastes.

How to Maintain

Step 1 — Brush back the top part of your hair

Brush back the top part of your hair and secure it with a hairband or binder. You can use a comb, brush, or even your fingers.

Step 2 — Clip the rest to 6mm

Now that you know how to measure the length of your hair, it’s time to clip the rest of your hair to 6mm. It’s essential to cut all of your hair at once. If you don’t have a guard, use a comb or ruler instead. Using a trimming knife and scissors, clip off any straggly ends until all of your hair is 6mm long.

Step 3 — Trim the sides 

Now, you’re ready to trim the sides so they will be short enough for the #9 guard length to be near your temples. This step is essential because cutting them too long will take away from the overall shape of your haircut and make it look unbalanced. Like for shaved side haircuts, trimming is necessary for Edgar cut.

If you cut them too short, you won’t have anywhere to go with your sides later (i.e., when you decide to go into a longer fade). You want just enough length so that when we get closer to the temple area, our guard length will come down past where my temples are located now at an angle that works well with my natural facial features.

Work your way up the side with the #9 guard length, then round off towards the back of your head.

  • Use your comb to smooth out the haircut, then clean up stray hairs with a pair of clippers.
  • With a wide-toothed comb, brush out the top and cut it to 2 inches (5 cm).
  • Use a wide-toothed comb to brush out the top of your hair.
  • Cut it to 2 inches (5 cm).

Using a fine-toothed comb, clip off just enough from the front to create even bangs look without making them too long.

Step 4 — Determine undercut length

Knowing how long you want your undercut is essential before heading to the barber. This will help determine how much hair is taken off. You should also use a comb and mirror to make sure you’re happy with the length of it. Don’t forget about the clippers too.

Can anyone have an Edgar haircut?

Edgar is a simple and versatile haircut that can be easily adapted to all hair types, lengths, and face shapes. The best thing about it is that anyone can have an Edgar haircut. Whether you have thick or thin hair, curly hair or straight hair, long hair or short hair — the options are endless.

How can I ask for an Edgar haircut?

You can ask for an Edgar haircut at your local barbershop, hairdresser, or salon. If you want to get a bespoke Edgar haircut, then it’s best to go to a high-end salon where they have experienced staff who can do the job perfectly. The staff will give you a consultation before starting the haircut.

How to get a messy Edgar cut?

The look is characterized by messy hair that has a slight wave to it and is cut low on the sides and back with longer hair on top.

It’s important to note that there are different ways to achieve the same results when getting an Edgar haircut, depending on your personal preferences. If you want to get a messy hairstyle but don’t want to pay top dollar for a stylist at your local salon, there are plenty of DIY methods you can use at home (or even if you’re traveling). 

Why is this haircut controversial?

Some people might argue that Edgar is a bad boy haircut, but it’s not technically a “bad boy” cut — it’s just edgy. There are plenty of other hairstyles that are considered much more controversial than Edgar. For example, the undercut — which some might say is a punk rock haircut — and the man bun, which is currently popular among hipsters and pop stars alike.

The reason why many people have an issue with this style of hair is that they think it makes you look like a rebel or bad person (even though most Rocco Siffredi fans would disagree). If you’re worried about what others will think of your new style, just remember: if anyone gives you any grief about looking different from them or their peers, tell them to mind their own business!
