A type or feature of a haircut
, especially of the short style worn by military members.
In short hair, especially men
's, the hair should fade from none at the bottom to manageble hair
at the top
The important part of a good fade is that there should be no visible changes in length of hair. There should never be any area of the hair that is obviously of a different length
, except in those places where it is appropriate, ie. a part.
