The Taper Hairstyle For Men

The taper hairstyle is the perfect type of hairstyle if you want something that looks clean and neat around the sides and back, yet still gives you a ton of different options on top.

A lot of people wonder what the difference between a taper and a fade is – the main difference is that a taper doesn’t go up very high, and it’s gradual. So while a fade might go from a 0 to a 1-2 on the sides, a taper can go from a 1 to a 4.

A low fade and a taper might look very similar at times, but if you’re the type of guy that doesn’t want the sides of their hair to be cut up too high, opt for a taper.

A classic taper look is the edgar hairstyle, but we’ll also feature some other hairstyles in this article, and a good summary video at the end.
