One of the benefits of the tapered haircuts is that its subtle yet effective. Once your high skin fade grows out you have many options, 1 being to shave your head back to the high fade or get a tapered fade.

Tapers and fades always both grow back clean which is another reason we see many opting for this. Essentially it is a combination of a taper haircut and a fade haircut.

In terms of appearance the quiff closely resembles the pompadour. Both are voluminous styles that sweep the hair back however, quiffs have a natural messy look whereas the pompadour are tight, pull together and have slickness to it.

How to get a Combover Haircut

Now that we have covered his hair types as well as various styles we have provided instructions on how to achieve his signature hairstyle.

The comb-over is a classic men’s style which is identified with hair on top flowing in one direction left or right, popularised by athletes such as David Beckham.


Here’s what you need to do

  • Comb your hair forward and select where you want your side part to sit
  • After choosing your side part, brush your hair to the opposite side
  • Blow-dry your side part straight down to flatten the side
  • Apply reasonable amount of product to give your hair that added finish and shine


You must remember that the combover looks best when sides are shaved and shaped up, therefore ensure a quick visit to the barber before or after to ensure that once the combover is complete it complements the look.

We should also mention that not only is the comb over highly sought after by men for its versatility but it also enables those who are balding the ability to cover the spots.
