A hi-top fade is a style of haircut where hair on the sides is cut off or kept very low and hair on the top of the head is very long (in contrast, a low fade is when hair on the top is kept shorter). The hi-top has been a trend symbolizing the Golden Era of Hip Hop and urban contemporary music during the late 1980s and the early 1990s.

Bryan O’Quinn was one of the few underground dance music artists to enjoy negligible mainstream exposure during the late '80s and early '90s heyday of hip-hop soul. O’Quinn’s smooth seductive crooning style and erotic dance moves earned him a significant female following and made him a presence on the up and coming R&B dance music scene.
