Boosie Fade Haircut
To understand the Boosie fade haircut, let me give you a brief explanation of what a fade haircut is. Certain hairstyles have a gradual decrease in hair density from top to bottom. That is, the hair decreases in thickness over time. Such hairstyles are called fades.
There are mainly three and possibly seven types of fade haircuts. The difference between fade haircuts is determined by the amount of hair on top of your head. However, a slight change in a style can give birth to a brand new one. Therefore, when it comes to fade haircuts, there are many options.
Keeping the top of the fade short makes a Boosie fade different from other fades. Although it might seem like ‘just another fade cut,’ it’s not ‘just another ordinary one.’ During this haircut, the scalps of your head are shaven clean, and only a moderate amount of hair is left at the top to cover your bald spots.
What is the origin of the Boosie fade haircut?
Boosie fade haircuts have gained popularity almost everywhere and among people of all different styles. In the last few years, the haircut has been taken up a notch by young men worldwide as if it is some kind of, quote-unquote, “religious hairstyle” for them. This begs the question, where does it come from?
If you are familiar with the rap industry in any way, you’ve probably heard of Lil Boosie. Lil Boosie, also known as the Boosie BadAzz, is widespread. The ‘Boosie Fade’ haircut is named after this American rapper from Baton Rouge.
When Lil Boosie started wearing this haircut, it got a lot of attention, but that wasn’t the end of it. Over time, it gained popularity so much that people started wearing it because of its edgy look. It’s funny that many people with this hairstyle don’t even know who Boosie BadAzz is! The Lil Boosie controversy we will discuss next should already give you a sense of what we will discuss.
Boosie Fade Haircuts
The Boosie fade haircut is one of the most popular haircuts in the barbering industry. Additionally, it’s one of the most accessible and most convenient styles to wear. My barbershop has been open for nearly five years now. You can trust my word on that.
Reasons for this haircut’s popularity and versatility include:
1. It’s stylish and edgy
There is little doubt about the stylish & edgy result with this cut. Celebrities have started wearing this haircut, so I guess we all know how rock-solid their fashion sense is. Some stars even wore the hairstyle on the red carpet.
However, if you keep your eyes on TV, you’ll see that many characters in various TV shows and movies wear the Boosie fade as well.
2. It’s also essential.
It sounds weird when you use ‘stylish, edgy, and basic’ all these adjectives to describe the same thing. But trust me, that is precisely what it is! This haircut serves a variety of purposes. The Boosie fade can also be used to achieve a basic look.
3. Effortless and convenient.
Many people I have seen go through so much trouble maintaining a stylish look for their long hair. When it comes to getting the best condition, it’s not just about the effort; you need to spend some money too. Fortunately, that’s not the case for Boosie fade haircuts.
Wash your head two to three times a week, and you’re good to go. Isn’t that something everyone does anyway? If you want your hair to look shiny and wet, all you need to do is use some gel or products like that. That’s the basics. (You don’t have to do that, that’s only if you want to).
4. Fits into any attire or environment.
The same haircut may not look good with all outfits or environments. In many places, specific haircuts are deemed inappropriate. It’d be hard to get a job interview or attend a school with hair rules if you had the same haircut as 6ix9ine.
Isn’t that weird? However, the Boosie fade doesn’t only suit every place; you can also reflect any image you want. I have seen quite a few cases where someone got a very stylish haircut one day and then had to cut it the next! Imagine how embarrassing that would be!
5. Soldiers, too, can have stylish haircuts!
We all know that soldiers must keep their hair short as part of their protocol. During vacation, I have seen soldiers with long hair who had to cut it short (with a sad face) before deployment. However, the Boosie fade cut has introduced the concept that short hair can be stylish too.
The Boosie fade is an excellent choice for a haircut that’s trendy, stylish, and suits all occasions. The amount of popularity it has gained over the years is impressive. Due to this haircut’s upper hands, it’s going to be on-trend for a long time to come.
One of the best things about this haircut is that you can quickly get it done with the help of another person or at any salon close to you. Although the cut is prominent, you don’t need a specialist or a salon to get this haircut. It is the simplicity of this hairstyle that makes it so unique.
