After New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert ditched his trademark hi-top fade, some feared that the iconic 'do was facing its demise in the NBA.

Enter Philadelphia 76ers big man Nerlens Noel.

Noel sat out the 2013-14 season while rehabbing a torn ACL, so most fans have not seen him for over a year. And while a hi-top fade for Noel is nothing new, he let the world know in an Instagram post on Tuesday that it's not just still around—it's in as fine a form as ever.

His caption?

"Fresh outta the barbershop."
