My brother got a new do last night because his friend made fun of his fashy cut.
What did he get?
He just buzzed it all off.

Fashy is slang for someone with fascist beliefs (far-right and ultranationalist). It is a derogatory term that people adopted in the mid-2010s to ridicule people espousing fascist views online, especially on social media.
For example, you might see an argument on Twitter where one person accuses the other of being an SJW, while the other responds with, "Better than being fashy!" You may also hear it in person during political discussions. For example, your friend may say, "I broke up with him because he sounded fashy. I no longer respected him after that."
The fashy haircut
People may also refer to the undercut hairdo (buzzed hair on the sides and longer on top) as fashy since many far-right extremists have adopted it. The name comes from "fascist" and became popular in November 2016.
The undercut do has been popular throughout the 20th century, including the 1910s, 1940s (unfortunately employed by many Nazis, including Hitler Youth), and 1980s. The haircut then experienced a resurgence in the 2010s when it was popularized by rapper Macklemore, athlete David Beckham, and many hipsters.
However, far-right extremists (the alt-right) began adopting it in 2016 to appear more palatable. As people with fascist views adopted the haircut, people on social media began referring to it as "fashy" (it's unclear who coined it).
