Other Barber Shops, and Salons-

Other Barbers and Barber Shops are known for trying to copy what we do, as well as how we do it. We are aware of this and are not impressed. We have several things planned that will put and end to their copy cat ways!

Select the Fading Theory Barber Shop in Lauraville for your hair cutting and shaving needs, but even if you select another shop, be sure to look for a valid Maryland state barbers license (not a copy of another persons) at each barbers work station, as well as a valid barber shop license hanging in the barber shop, or salon. You may confirm that ANY barber, cosmetologist, barber shop, or salon in the entire state of Maryland has went through the proper channels, and has earned the licenses, and permits to serve the public by searching the following Maryland state link. https://www.dllr.state.md.us/cgi-bin/ElectronicLicensing/OP_search/OP_search.cgi?calling_app=BAR::BAR_qselect

Clean cut at Fading Theory Barbershop. Barber was very attentive to detail in my cut (Light fade with beard trim). One of the best cuts so far during my stay in Baltimore. I would definitely recommend this location. Free parking lot parking would've been nice, but it's Baltimore.
