come in any length. Usually there are 3 styles. A high taper, mid(temple) taper, and a low taper(usually for 360 wave cuts) If you like to feel like you have a little more hair, this is the perfect style for you being that the haircut is only on the temples and back of the neck. Usually asked for in either a bald or "shadow"(stubble length) it can be accommodated for any length desired. Can be matched with an all around fade of a longer length to still achieve a high top curly or combover look. Without it having to be so short on the sides. Generally, the lower the taper fade the shorter amount of time the haircut will last.
