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 address this issue! https://www.dllr.state.md.us/cgi-bin/ElectronicLicensing/OP_Search/OP_search.cgi?calling_app=COS::COS_business_name

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 Barber/Barber Shop link. https://www.dllr.state.md.us/cgi-bin/ElectronicLicensing/OP_search/OP_search.cgi?calling_app=BAR::BAR_qselect, or the Salon/Cosmo link https://www.dllr.state.md.us/cgi-bin/ElectronicLicensing/OP_search/OP_search.cgi?calling_app=COS::COS_qselect

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.
