We’ve all seen Joe rock this style before but I’m here to remind you how classic and timeless this style can be while entering 2018. The disconnected undercut is easily a stylish and versatile look. We see a lot of pompadour and quiff styles go along with a disconnected undercut.
It’s important for the barber to find the part to disconnect and even more important on how high or low the disconnect should be. Now there are people who can rock the higher disconnect with a fade, but it depends on how short and close you want the fade to be. A zero sides would look better with a higher disconnect rather than a three on the side.
Having a tapered fade helps give the look a more natural style. A tapered fade would start short from the bottom and increase in length towards the top of the head. This tapered look tends to favor a top length that is longer. You could imagine that if you had a skin fade with really long strands on top, the tips of the hair would sit at the back of your head and not look natural.
