About the Style – Mid Bald Fade & Quiff
This is a very common hairstyle in the fashion circuit and like Virat’s, is usually paired with a beard. Specifically speaking, this is a mid-bald fade with quiff at the top.
The hair cut involves a skin fade from just above the center area of the sides while keeping hair thick on the others! You can pair this to various styles on the top, including combover, pompadour and as you see here, a short quiff!

Here are some variations
There are a bunch of variations of the medium fade that you can give a try:
The mid fade with pompadour
Pairing the mid fade (and slightly angled at that) with a pompodour is always a good idea. It is classy and feel-good, and will suit men of any age.
The watered-down version
For those who think that the skin fade is little beyond their boundaries, you could always go for its milder version. This is borderline low-fade and can accommodate lots of variations at the top
Textured hair colour and medium fade
If you are feeling super experimental, go for the textured colour fade!
The model here is sporting platinum hair colour all through out.
