I really wish I did. Acrylic Painting is not my strong point.

Obviously it's going to be darker on the top and lighter on the bottom but instead of making the hair lighter I would start gradually incorporating more of his skin tone. More hair/less skin when you start the blending process until you blend down to more skin/less hair. Probably not a word of that made sense except to me. I generally know what I want to say but have a hard time translating it into written word.

In effect the hair is not being lightened - it's just being shaved closer so more of the skin shows through and that's what gives it the fade effect.
