SubscribeThe Best Fade Haircuts to Bring to Your Barber David BeckhamDavid Beckham's long-on-top fade is among the most Googled haircuts in the country. That's probably because it's got great volume on top and is just groomed enough (and also because he's David Beckham). Adam LevineIf you're looking for a fade that isn't shaved down too close to the skin on the sides, Levine's haircut is a good one to try. Jimmy Butler If you've got coarse and/or curly hair, Jimmy Butler's fade with twists is a solid choice. Hell, half of the NBA has already copied him. Cameron Dallas If you're under 25 with a full head of thick hair (congrats), make like Cameron Dallas and bleach it out and grow it long on top. Cristiano Ronaldo We happen to think Ronaldo is a little heavy-handed when it comes to hair product, but the cut itself, closely cropped and well defined, deserves recognition. Gordon Hayward Hayward's hair always looks good, even when he's sweating buckets. His naturally thick straight hair certainly helps, but the precision of his cut and his skilled use of product are what really seal the deal. Brad Pitt Brad Pitt gave up his military-inspired fade years ago, but the cut lives on in grooming history. To achieve the look, go super-high with the shaved sides (almost to Mohawk territory) and slick the length on top straight back. Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake is proof that when it comes to hair, where there's a will, there's a way. The formerly curly-haired pop singer likely chemically straightened his hair before buzzing it down into a tight high fade. Nick YoungNick Young is a hair chameleon who can pull off anything, but we're partial to his signature fade with twists on top. Poke around for more angles of this cut and you'll find Young often keeps it longer in the back, like a full Mohawk. Ryan ReynoldsIf you've got thinner hair or work in an office and don't want a Cameron Dallas–level fade, try Ryan Reynolds's short-all-over cut. Bonus: With hair this short you barely have to style it. Sergio Ramos Sergio Ramos is living proof that the modern-day fade makes every guy look more handsome. Like many other soccer players, Ramos opts for a distinct side part and keeps his fade on the low side. Zayn Malik Zayn Malik's hair length (and color) tends to change from month to month, but he's always rocking some type of fade on the sides. We're partial to the shorter version of the cut, which feels less trendy and more grown-up.
