High-Top Fade

Lower Elston Room
Session Details

The Modern High-Top Fade has the distinct look of short back and sides paired with the geometric precision of a box like flat top and was the first defining look of the hip-hop community back in the 1980’s.  It was a style for those wanting the freedom of self-expression and represented a new generation, becoming a symbol of the golden era.  Combining classic High-Top techniques with contemporary Fading techniques, this look is now modernized, mainstream, and easily maintained, and continues its popularity today.  Join Sarah as she shares and explains the specific techniques in perfecting and detailing this iconic look.
