You can help licensed & professional barbershops


Small businesses are the soul of every community across the planet. Some of you may own a small business, or work in a small business. Even more of you support your local small businesses each day. Our communities continue to struggle with COVID-19, as it impacts us all. 

The Fading Theory Barber Shop recognizes the challenges ahead for us all, and we have done everything we could to adhere to the sanitation processes that we already had in place prior to COVID-19 and to further keep our locations up to par since COVID-19. We follow the recommendations of our leaders, health service providers and our government, in addition to our own policies and procedures. As you know, Governor Hogan shut down all non essential businesses in Maryland, but weeks later allowed Barber Shops and Salons to service essential personnel only, with added restrictions.

Over the last few months the barber industry in Maryland has basically come to a complete standstill. The livelihood of barbers, managers and shop owners across the state were, and are on the line. Like many, The Fading Theory Barber Shop had to reduce services, staff and options, due to COVID-19 and eventually close. Those actions that were out of our control created an incredible loss of revenue. 

I am asking you to help us, so we can keep giving people an alternative to what else is out there in the barber world. Help us, so we can keep the doors open and keep the barber chairs available. Donations will only cover a fraction of lost income and provide desperately needed relief to our barbers and our shops that have been hurting. Again, we ask everyone that is able to donate to help our shops during these crazy times. If you believe in what we are trying to do for our shops, our barbers and also believe that there should be an option like ours in Maryland, or anyplace in the country, you have an opportunity to help. 

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $2,500, but any amount will help. If we hit our goal, the top 16 donors will have hair cut styles named after them, on our upcoming hair cut styles poster, as a reminder of the great help you provided. If you are not able to help with a monetary donation, then please help by forwarding this page to your contacts, social media friends, followers, etc., so that maybe someone else may contribute. If everyone gave just $10 and each of their friends gave $10 we would meet our goal.

Be well.

Thank you.
