The Modern side part is a really interesting take on an old classic and is very versatile. The sides are either short or faded really close. The fade can be even all the way around or disconnected on the part side depending on the customers preference. In other words, the hair can be faded all the way up to the part but blended on the opposite side. Finally, the part is cut into the hair with a trimmer or straight razor. This is done by cutting a thin line along the natural part. Depending on the length on the top the hair can be styled flat to the head or with some height in the front like a Pompadour.
