Baker Mayfield Career
Mayfield began his career as a walk-on player for the Texas Tech Red Raiders. He is notable for being the first walk-on true freshman quarterback to start a season opener at a BCS school.
After one year with Texas Tech, Mayfield transferred to Oklahoma following alleged scholarship restrictions by coaches. After sitting out a year, Mayfield won the starting quarterback job over Trevor Knight and led Oklahoma to victories in the College Football Playoff Semifinal and College Football Playoff National Championship during the 2015 season. As a result of his on-field success and leadership, he became the first walk-on to win the Heisman Trophy.
In 2017, Mayfield helped lead the Sooners to their second consecutive Big 12 title as well as their third consecutive appearance in the College Football Playoff. Mayfield won his second consecutive Heisman Trophy as well as numerous other awards, including being unanimously named AP Player of the Year. The Cleveland Browns selected Mayfield as the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft following his senior season.
Baker Mayfield Haircut
Baker Mayfield has a fade haircut that is a shorter taper and blends or folds into the skin at the same time. This style is also known as a high fade because it starts higher up on your head than other styles, such as low fades (which start lower down).
A fade haircut is used to describe how the hair on the sides and back of a man’s head is tapered in length, usually with electric clippers. It is often cut to blend into the sideburns as well. It looks good on most men and can be styled in many ways.
This type of haircut is trendy and cool. Men who want a low-maintenance haircut will find this style appealing. The hair at the top of your head does not need to be styled daily, making it a good choice for those who have busy mornings that do not allow time for styling products.
The skin fade on the sides and back of the head is what gives it its name. This type of cut is cut very close to the skin, so no hair remains. The length gradually increases as you move up the head until you reach the top, where it is the longest.
This style can have a hard or soft look depending on whether you choose a bald fade or not, which refers to whether any stubble or shadowing remains after cutting it very short.
How to get a Fade Haircut?
Start with the largest clipper size you will be using on your sides and back. For example, if you’ll be using number 4 clippers, start out with that on the sides and back of your head.
Run the clippers up the sides and back. Do this several times to remove any excess hair. This is only needed if your barber or stylist didn’t already do it for you.
Switch to a smaller clipper size and trim up the sides and back again. Repeat until you reach the desired length of your fade cut. Don’t forget to blend in longer hair on top during this step if you want a disconnected look.
Use scissors to trim up any areas that need cleaning up or blending in, such as the sideburns, neckline, and around the ears.
In the end, fades are a good haircut for anyone to try during the warmer months. They’re easy to style, and they can be left with a natural look or styled into almost any fashion.
The fade cut creates a clean-cut look that doesn’t require as much maintenance as other hairstyles.
