Two locations to serve you!

Turn The Bass & Volume Up!

The Fading Theory Barber Shop LLC has two Maryland locations to serve you. We have a location in Baltimore 21214 and a location in Aberdeen, 21001. Our shops are fully licensed barber shops, that operate predominantly by appointment, however we will accept walk-ins if we are available. The Fading Theory Barber Shop provides classic barber services while implementing traditional, and modern cutting techniques. We always try to incorporate a touch of flare within our services. ALL SERVICES at The Fading Theory Barber Shop are provided by licensed, professionals in our upscale,  comfortable, and old school environment. Our licensed professionals service straight, and curly hair. 

The Fading Theory Barber Shop strives to stand out from any other barber shop in Maryland and our licensed, professionals want your experience with us to be unique. We are the first Barber Shop in the state to have its own dedicated mobile phone app for Android and IOS, and our mobile app is just one of the creations that help us stand out from the crowds. Scroll down this page and select our mobile phone app to download it free!

The Fading Theory Barber Shop has multiple big screen HDTV sets for your viewing pleasure. We have convenient, free WiFi while you are waiting to be serviced and there is free street parking. Our Aberdeen location has electric vehicle charging stations within the block as of 2020. Outside food, foul language, or unruly behavior is not permitted in our facilities, nor is the wearing of hoods, ‘hoodies’ on your head, or face masks while in our buildings. We are proud to be a no-nonsense, drug free and smoke free company. Come to relax, chill and get a good hair cut, with good service in a upscale environment, but keep in mind that violating any of our polices  can, and may result in no entry/service, or you and your party being asked to leave. The Fading Theory reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. We truly want you to see and feel the difference our professionals make.

Busy, busy! 2019 was crazy busy for us, as we tackled many areas of our industry, as well as achieving personal and professional milestones. Naturally, wrapping up the build and launching shop#2 kept us going 24/7 it seemed and we were happy to check that off of our completed list as well. Please note some functionality of our website and mobile app may be reduced, as we continue to complete additional updates. Temporary shop schedule reductions are in place during these updates, as well. Always remember that if you do not see a day, or time available, pick a different one. As always, be well! ...

When you think the To Do list is almost done, but you see all the parts of the barber chairs you still need to put back together. All praise to The Most High, as I am willing, able and up to the task. Be well.

@RepPressley @titojackson Can you explain to me why the House was able to come up with 4.5billion for border hotels and snacks yet 7(a) and 504 small business loans for ALL OF THE BLACK businesses in the country is under 600million? This is not right.

Be respectful on Twitter & move of #ADOS fam & allies, because the narrative is changing: Now people who seek to suppress our agenda driven advocacy r spreading the falsehood that we’re cyber bullying them. Apparently disagreeing online is bullying.

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.
