Find the right barbers, hairstyles and products for you.
FADE is a data driven platform that helps men find the right barbers, products and hairstyles catered specifically to their needs. FADE also provides barbers with a powerful client management suite that takes care of all their business needs so they can focus on what’s most important, their craft - cutting hair.
When a user gets on our platform, he is guided through an interactive survey to answer 8 questions about their current hair and grooming status. From the data we receive through this profile we reverse engineer a unique consumer profile that represents their personal haircare and grooming needs. We use this as the backbone of our platform to make data-driven recommendations that help them achieve the style and results they desire.
