  • The top is usually cut with freehand clippers and the shape softened with scissors.
  • You can still wear your Afro taper with a high or low fade, but Raheem’s low fade keeps the look classic.

Get The Look

  • The success of Raheem’s tapered Afro is all down to the curl definition.
  • Start on dry hair and use an Afro pick. Then apply pomade to speed up the curl-forming process.
  • Using a curl sponge, start at the crown of the head and rub it in a circular motion clockwise around the head for 1-5 minutes.
  • You can smooth any flyaways into shape with your palms and a dab of matte paste. Less is more – you want your hair to have hold, but not be stiff.
