How to do a medium fade haircut

Medium fade haircut is the perfect option for any technique haircut: you can shorten the strands if you want and at the same time have something to make an elongated style out of.


Ladder is one of the most popular and favorite haircuts among women. The gradual transition of strands from shorter to longer is what sets this haircut apart.

This haircut gives volume to the hair, making it dynamic. With the help of this haircut it is easy to correct the shape of the face.

It is recommended for owners of triangular, round and square face:

  1. Clean hair is moisturized and thoroughly combed. Using a straight vertical parting from the middle of the forehead to the middle of the neck divide the whole mass of hair into two equal parts.
  2. The bangs are separated in the form of an isosceles triangle and pinned with a clamp. Separate a 0.5-1 cm thick strand in the lower temporal zone from the right side with a diagonal break. Similarly, separate a strand, symmetrical to the right, in the left lower temporal zone. The rest of the hair is pinned with clips, so as not to interfere.
  3. The selected strand on the right side is brushed down and slightly pulled to the face. Grasp it between the middle and index finger of the left hand and cut it from the inside of the palm, creating a smooth line on the elongation to the bottom. This is the KP (control strand). Symmetrically (based on the length of the already trimmed strand on the right side), use the same technique to trim the selected strand on the left side. Check the symmetry of the trimmed strands by pulling them towards the center of the chin.
  4. Parallel to the previous partition, separate the next strand on the right side. Place the selected strand on top of the already trimmed one (with the same line of pulling to the face) and cut it off, focusing on the length and the KP line.
  5. Symmetrically and with the same technique, cut the strand on the left side. Thus, strand by strand, we cut the hair gradually moving to the occipital zone.
  6. Hair of the occipital zone is pulled up to the trimmed strands at the face in the same way and trim, focusing on their length and the line of the cut. To get a softer and smoother edging line at the face, the strands are processed by slicing.
  7. Separate a 0.5-1 cm strand on the edge of the bangs by a horizontal partition. Comb it on the face with a 0° tilt and trim it with the inner side of the palm, creating a clear horizontal line.

Use this technique to trim the entire bangs area strand by strand.

Dry the hair towards the face, creating free falling strands to the face. In this case the ends of hair slightly move with a comb.


Women loved the bob haircut for its practicality and simplicity in the 1920s. But it is popular today.

Many celebrities give preference to this, which has already become a classic haircut. And every year stylists are coming up with more and more new options:

  1. Clean wet hair is divided into zones according to the classic scheme: the parietal, temporal, lower, middle and upper occipital. Fix the hair of each zone with clips.
  2. The lower and middle occipital zone is cut by stroking the long hair, leaving a length of 2-4 cm.
  3. The upper occipital zone is cut by the method of vertical graduation, making a cut at an angle of 45 °, while focusing on the length of the previously processed zone.
  4. The dark zone is cut with the finger cutting method, separating the strands by horizontal cuts and pulling them off perpendicularly to the head.
  5. The first control strand is the strand from the previously trimmed upper occipital zone, then each new strand becomes the control strand for the next one.
  6. Separate a strand in the right temporal zone with a horizontal swath, comb it down and trim it at earlobe level. Then treat the entire area by horizontal graduation, pulling back the strands at an angle of 30°. Similarly we cut the left temporal zone.
  7. The hair of the parietal and temporal zones is processed by slay-singing to smooth the transition from one length to another. Dry and style according to the natural hair growth, emphasizing the texture of the haircut.


This haircut is familiar to all fashionistas since the 1960s. There is an opinion that Vidal Sassoon developed it for the French singer Mireille Mathieu.

However, the history of the haircut goes back to the Middle Ages, when wigs were styled in this form.

The haircut helps to create an eye-catching female image, making it cute and a little mysterious:

  1. Clean wet hair is divided for convenience by a straight parting from the middle of the forehead to the crown into two equal temporal and parietal zones, and also by vertical parting from the crown to the middle of the ear, we separate the nape zone. Each zone is fixed with a clamp.
  2. Separate 0.5-1 cm strands of hair along the edge of hair growth in each zone.
  3. Comb them downwards along the hair growth and trim them at a 0° angle. Start at the bangs, creating a concave line, and then continue it at the temple and occipital areas. Thus create a rounded edging line.
  4. Then, parallel to the selected sections, separate new strands 0.5-1 cm thick again around the circumference of the head. Also comb them according to the natural hair growth down onto the previously trimmed strands, clamp them between the index and middle fingers and cut them 1-2 mm longer than the previously trimmed hair at 0° retraction, repeating the set trimming line.
  5. This way, strand by strand, we cut the entire mass of hair, each time selecting a new layer of hair around the head and cutting each new layer 1 to 2 mm longer than the previous one.
  6. Dry the hair according to the natural hair growth and be sure to finalize the cutting line when dry, as dry hair can lay quite differently than wet hair.
  7. To soften the massive shape of the haircut, process the hair with the sliding cut method, setting the direction of individual hair strands.
  8. The fringe is also treated using the pointing method. After that, using a round brush, slightly move the ends of the hair inwards.

Lengthening it towards the face

Stylish haircut for the trendy and daring. With its long asymmetrical bangs it is a must-have for those who need to improve the shape of their face.

Properly creating the volume in the parietal and upper occipital areas of the head while styling hair and covering the sides of the face with loose strands, it is possible to visually bring the shape of your face closer to the ideal oval:

  1. Divide clean, wet hair into zones. Use a U-shaped partition to separate the parietal, temporal and occipital areas.
  2. In the zone of the parietal horizontal breakdown separate strand thickness of 0.5-1 cm, pull it at an angle of 90 ° to the head and cut above the fingers – this is the control strand (KP).
  3. Then separate strands of hair in this area by vertical sections and cut the hair at an angle of 45 ° sliding cut, focusing on the length of the control. This way we increase the length of the hair towards the face. This technique is used for the entire parietal area.
  4. The temporal areas are cut using the vertical 45° graduation method, still guided by the length of the control in the parietal zone.
  5. The occipital zone is cut by the method of hair reduction, creating a smooth line of transition from the short hair in the lower occipital zone to the longer hair in the crown zone.
  6. All zones are trimmed with slitting and gliding cuts to achieve a smooth transition from one length to another.
  7. We trim the entire edge of the hair growth line with the method of pinning.
  8. Stack the hair with a hair dryer and comb, emphasizing the texture of the cut and the dynamism of the form.


This haircut can be performed on hair of different lengths, but it will look best on curly or medium length straight hair.

It allows different styling of the hair, correcting if necessary, the shape of the face, so for many years it remains popular and suitable for ladies of the fair sex of almost any age:

  1. Wet, clean hair is divided into zones: the parietal, left and right temporal. The occipital zone is divided by vertical sections into left, right and central parts.
  2. We start the haircut from the parietal zone. Separate a 0.5-1 cm strand in the area of the top of the head with a horizontal swath. Pull it perpendicular to the head (at an angle of 90°) and cut it above the fingers – this is the control strand (CS).All hair of this area, separating them by horizontal strips strand by strand, pull to the CS and cut at its level.
  3. Then move on to the right temporal zone. In the same way, separate strands 0.5-1 cm thick by horizontal sections and pull them to the control in the zone of the crown, cutting hair at its level.
  4. Similarly cut the left temporal zone.
  5. Start cutting the occipital zone from the central part. Using the same technique pull the hair strand by strand to the control on the crown and cut it at its level. Similarly cut the left and right parts.
  6. Select a triangle in the bangs area and trim from the inner side of the palm (under the fingers), creating a smooth rounded bangs shape.
  7. Process the fringe line of the haircut with the method of pointing, creating a soft, smooth fringe. To create the texture of the haircut, process the entire mass of hair with the slithering method.
  8. Dry and style the hair with a blow dryer and a skeleton comb and a round brush, creating natural volume.
