So, you’re considering a taper haircut? Read on to learn what it is, what it looks like and what styles are most popular. The taper haircut is when your hair is longer on top and gradually gets shorter towards the bottom. Your barber or stylist will typically use scissors or shears for this haircut rather than clippers. This cut is a classic, but lately, it’s been cut shorter around the sides and back of the head.
You have several options on how you want to fade this cut down to your neckline. You can have a low, medium or high taper. You’ll see what these look like in the pictures below.
You’ll also want to consider how you want the back of your neckline cut. Rather than having a hard line where your hair stops, you can ask your barber make it tapered, which makes it blend more nicely into your skin for a clean and modern look.
The great thing about this cut is that it works with all face shapes and hair types. All you need is a little length on top to make this work. Also, the benefit of a taper is that it grows back evenly, which means you can allow more time in-between cuts.
