I've always wonder, sometimes I hear they're the same but others time I hear they're aren't.

Anyone on NT gets a low taper cut ?

Pics for difference would help

Shorty has a Taper, some people go a little higher from the top of the ear...but that really defeats the purpose of a "taper"

No...To be Honest,Unless he's been your barber for a while and he knows how you like your hair to be cut, You cant go to a Barber and just say...."Let me get a taper"....or ..."Let me get a Low fade"...Because 9-10 times Its not gonna come out how you like it, Just tell him exactly how you want it...Throw all of the "hair cutting terms" out of the window....OR just go by the Styles Guide Posters....

It's basically a high taper fade utilizing a lot of guards. Most taper fades, your barber may use 3. I think a shadow fade is like 8 guards or something. You can really see a difference. The fade looks resembles a gray scale so to speak.image
