Featured Style: Skin Fade Side Part with Lined Beard

If you’ve been on the UCD bandwagon for some time now, you’ll know we love a classic style. For this cut, Uppercut Deluxe Ambassador Tim Hutton, pairs modern barbering techniques with timeless fundamentals to cook up a storm. As the saying goes “The classics never die”, and this Skin Fade Side Part with a Lined Beard is hot off the grill with all the trimmings.

This cut highlights a classic style that will stand the test of time, pairing a high and tight skin fade, with a side part and crisp beard line up. Lining the beard up adds a frame to enhance the look while making the fade pop.


Skin Fade Side Part with Lined Beard 


We asked Uppercut Deluxe Founder Steve Purcell for his two cents as a barber: “Highlights of the cut are subtle yet classy – for example a foiled skin fade that blurs out with a soft transition, not knowing where the foils started or the foils finished,” said Steve. For those not familiar with foil shavers, check out this write up from aussie favourites Barber Temple on ‘12 Tools Professional Barbers Should Have In Their Tool Kit.

Skin fades and side parts are staples in any good barber’s playbook, jump in the chair and trust the process. Keep a photo handy for reference and your barber will nail this style day in, day out.

Achieving this style at home is an easy one with the right tools in your kit. If you’re looking for a true ‘classic’ style reach for a tin of Deluxe Pomade, for high shine and a strong hold. Chasing something more modern? Our Matte Pomade has you covered for a natural, matte finish.

All good styles require clean hair, so make sure you’ve shampooed and conditioned. If you’re chasing a little extra volume, a pump of Foam Tonic before blow drying will get you there. Take a dab of your preferred pomade and spread evenly across both hands. Apply a small amount to the fringe area using your fingertips and work back to apply the pomade from root to tip. Using a comb, brush hair forward and define your part line. Using a CB11 Rake Comb, comb hair to either side of the part line and finish by combing the fringe back to complete the style, using long strokes for distinct comb lines. For extra hold, build up additional layers of pomade as you go.

Lining up your beard with a clean, crisp line at home takes a steady hand and a little practice but put the time in and you’ll be stoked with the result. Look no further than our all-new shave range to get the job done. Prep the skin using Exfoliating Cleanser to cleanse, detoxify and lift hair away for a close shave. Follow up with a thin layer of Clear Shave Gel along the edge of your beard, steady your hand and edge a clean line using your preferred razor or trimmer. Take it slow, you can always take more off but can’t stick it back on. Finish up with a dab of Hydrating Moisturiser to help soothe irritated skin.
