Temp Fade

The temple fade, also known as the temp fade, the Brooklyn fade, or the Philly fade is a style that’s easy to recognize. The hair on the sides and back of the head is cut short, beginning with a near-shave at the hairline and growing thicker as it reaches back and up. The hair on top of the head is cut short, but it is all the same length. It’s also significantly longer than the hair on the sides and back of the head.

The reason this style is called a temple fade is that it begins at the temples and fades back along the skull. Originally designed for ethnic subcultures, it’s since been embraced by a wide variety of peoples in the United States as well as abroad. It is different from a tapered hairstyle, because a tapered haircut has definitive step ups and step downs where different sized blades are used. A fade hairstyle on the other hand is like a shadow; it gets darker, but there’s no dividing lines between one level of light and another. This cut is popular with athletes, and as a result it’s also popular with those who want to imitate their style.
