Fade County has been featured twice on Channel 7 News with Todd Toggen, and has had multiple athletes come by the shop thru out the years but honestly the most important part of our history is today we seize the moment and focus on the present and the consistency and the quality of our service we deliver today. In part that has been our success thru out the years to always focus and flow like water to the present.
Staying current and trending is key in the hair style business.
– Jorge Fleites, the owner.
A Unique Family Business
The shop was started by Jorge and Alex in 2010 they come from humble beginnings father being a house painter and mother a factory worker/cosmotologist. Recently their third and youngest brother Cris has joined and revamped the shop, being a new graduate it reinforced Fade Countys history of staying current with trends and styles in the industry
We also carry cigars for our men that like to smoke occasionally. And more than a barbershop we are a brand. We carry Enki, Romeo and Julieta, Macanudo and Cohiba but we are always updating and changing the selection.
Jorge being the backbone of the shop always says its easy running a shop because he just shows up to work and leaves the rest in Gods hands
But his background is pretty hefty he started cutting hair at age 13 which technically positions him at 20 years in the hair industry, he started at 16 at a great barbershop that is still around with his friend/mentor Hector (Xtreme Barbershop).
Thru barbering he went to school to please his mom and attained a Bachelor degree in Nursing that once done gave to his mom and continued barbering. Thru barbering he bought his first property at age 19, and the list goes on, the blessings barbing has brought him and those around him is hard to count and its hard to get Jorge to talk about himself because if you know him he likes to keep it humble, and says he needs to hit a few more goals thru barbering before he unveils the power of barbering not to gloat but to bring awareness to the youth that being an artist/barber can be the most most fulfilling thing for some people and not everyone is meant to be a doctor or a lawyer.
Cris is the third and youngest brother, he is like a human Google.
He is constantly reading and staying updated on most current topics, he enjoys learning new techniques and is always willing to help others. Cris is the youngest of the three and with that being said brings new life to the shop with his youth and new styles. He also loves the outdoors and always places family first, he’s a good worker with good values, and loves a healthy lifestyle.
Alex, Jorges younger brother is what you would classify as a grinder in everything he does he is the first in and the last out at the barbershop.
His passion is barbering and poker. He says we should all pursue happiness he says money isn’t everything happiness should be everyones goal. He loves fishing and the outdoors as well as marathons. Unfortunately do not fall in love with Alex as a barber because he is seasonal at fade county because he plays poker on a professional level and barbers when the holiday traffic calls.
