Other Barber Shops and Salons

Select the Fading Theory Barber Shop for your hair cutting and shaving needs, but even if you select another shop be sure to look for the following. A valid Maryland state barbers license, with the barbers picture (not a copy of another person’s license) must be displayed at each barber’s work station, as well as a valid shop license must be hanging in that barber shop or salon. We understand that some shops and some barbers do not take sanitation, safety, covid19, or general Maryland barber policy seriously, but ask yourself this. If a barber shop, or salon is willing to break rules and cut corners, what other rules and corners are they willing to break in that shop they may affect you and your loved ones? You may confirm that ANY barber shop, or salon in the entire state of Maryland has at minimum gone through the proper channels and has earned the licenses and permits to serve the public by searching the following Maryland Barber/Barber Shop link – Click here, or the Salon/Cosmo link – Click Here

I had to learn the hard way initially, when I showed up 20 minutes late for an appointment. I didn't get a cut that day, and lost my deposit.Totally my fault, and I own that. I admit that I felt some kinda way, until I saw the operation and how the master barber ran the shop. Once I understood that I wasn't at Pokies barbershop, I have been blessed every since. Trust and believe, that I have showed up on time, or rescheduled every since. A legit business, with talented barbers.
