Specialized Barber Service: The Skin Fade


We have been offering a skin fade (some refer to it as a bald fade) since our opening 18 years ago. The skin fade's name is exactly what most would think it is. The fade blends to bare skin close to the temple and around the head. As this service has become very popular within the last 2 and half years and more and more of our customers and new customers are requesting, we realized that this service offering was continuously running long because of the precision blending required. Around that time we started directing our customers and members to book the precision haircut which is both for full hair styles as well as the skin fade. This transition has gone well, but new customers are continuing to book our regular haircut service that does not build in the time we need to perform it to our standards. 



This is why we are creating this specialized service called the Skin Fade. It does run 15 minutes longer not only because of the tightness of the fade but also the service  includes a full razor shave up to the fade point for the most precise fade. See the blog post we wrote when we originally wrote here in July of 2021. 

Here is our current description of the Skin Fade Service:
