Drop fade belongs to the category of the shadow fade, which is a fade that goes from the sides to the top with a gradual transition in length. The drop fade, in turn, consists of the following variations: a high, medium and low drop fade. This haircut got its name due to the way the fade drops once passes the ear.
Many barbers consider the drop and taper fade the same haircut. However, these cuts are slightly different. The drop fade follows the head’s shape and creates a curved arc shape, whereas the taper fade circles the head on an even keel.
