High and mid fades are more significant, and the hair is chopped short half way up your head or up to the hairline. From the three main fade haircut, you can get numerous styles, and some are covered here. Take a gander…

  1. Low Fade Haircut.

Your guess is right as mine; the high fade hairstyle has fading that begins up high on the head. The fade is usually a continuation of the line-up, that begins above the temp. This haircut really looks great with slicked back cuts such as pompadours.
