The 80's

The 80's saw Hip Hop take a meteoric rise. There were no bigger influences in barbershops around the country than the likes of Bobby Brown and Kid & Play. Their Gumby style fades had players in the 80's dropping the Jerhi Curls and rocking the square top- light on the sides and thick on the top. Today, you can catch the likes of Norris Cole and Iman Shumpert on the court with a similar cut.

  • Dominick Wilkins

    Dominick was a high flyer and his fade was also often high above his ears in support of the 80's trend
  • Kenny "Sky" Walker

    Kenny had by far the most impressive fade of his time, only Christopher Reid's House Party box top could compare
  • Dee Brown

    Bobby Brown and Dee Brown may not be related but they appeared to share barbers as both sported the tight gumby style hairstyle
