Mixing the slick back with a bald fade is a bald move. Another intended pun. The style is not easy to pull off, especially if you have a receding hairline or the beginning of a bald patch. Still, if you have a good hairstylist, he can make you look like a million bucks.

The bald fade with beard is by default a disconnected hairstyle. This idea means that your hairline and the beard line are discontinued by the fact that you have shaved a portion of your hair in the middle. Adding a hard part is a question of taste.
5. The Classic Bald Fade with Beard

If you love this hairstyle and want to copy it, here’s a pro tip for you. Stock up on hair gel, hair wax, and hairspray. This kind of style requires a lot of product to keep it in place. Also, make sure you invest in a high-quality one, that doesn’t affect your hair.
14. Textured and Messy Bald Fade
