I have grew up in this area all my life, I practice law here and I have been going to the Fade Station when it was over off of 8th ave. Yes Tommy use to be the owner and Ryan took over when they moved to East Bay. One of these users on here Sancin use to be a barber at Fade Station before he and another barber (Danny and Rich) went behind Ryan's back after Ryan gave them a job, and were opening a barber shop up across the street. Don't get me wrong everyone should inspire to have their own business if chosen to, but the way in which these two ""exceptional"" barbers do business in life, carries over to every aspect of their business. Ryan has been cutting my hair now for 7 years and I have always went to court looking sharp and have gotten many compliments on my hair, even referred alot of colleagues to the Fade Station. All the barbers they have their now are outstanding. It is a true family over at the Fade Station. I have seen those guys do designs that you only see on television! So Fade Station I would recommend to EVERYONE!!
