Simple, stylish and timeless. From its origins in the Golden Era of hip-hop to the versatile look it is today, the fade haircut is a staple style for men of the modern era. Taper, scissor, skin, faux-hawk – the list goes on and on when it comes to the evolution of this haircut. With so many variations stemming from the original hi-top fade way back in the 1980’s, it’s a style that can achieve any look from understated to bold.
At Area Studio, we’ve spent years learning and refining our barbering techniques so that we can offer the very best in classic and contemporary fade haircuts for our Melbourne clientele. Whether you know exactly what cut you want or need a bit of advice and inspiration, our team will work with you to create the perfect look based on your personal style and hair type.
Every service comes with an optional bay rum and moisturiser, plus a complimentary drink.
Our standard fade or clipper cut service includes skin fades with an optional bay rum and moisturiser, plus a complimentary drink. This service is for basic fade work on the sides and back and does not cover complete restyling or scissor work.
This consultation covers any fades, tapers, scissor cuts and other styles that require scissor work. We’ll help you choose the best cut based on your lifestyle and hair type and will give you advice on styling products and techniques to procure the same look at home.
After a fresh fade haircut, there’s no sense in leaving your bristles out of the fun. This consultation includes a full assessment of your facial structure, beard type and hair growth patterns to give you nothing short of the best beard trim. If needed, we’ll finish it off by shaping with a straight razor to give you that extra edge. Hot towel, beard oil and balm are available as optional extras.
