How would you rate Fades of Gray?
always does a good job and gay friendly for all the brothers go there they does a good job
Julian has been my barber for over 10 years and honestly would never go anywhere else! Always a perfect cut every time! If you need a haircut Julian is your guy!
Always good! Recommend for anybody who wants a haircut.
Friendly environment .
Over priced, no razor cut, or razor line edge. This shop is nice but 20 for a cut is that is unprofessional not worth it. Barbers there need to go learn how to fade. Poor hair cut
They do a great job and have good availability
Go to Tony he will get you right every time
Great experience at Fades of Gray.
Nice and convenient location, cheap/easy to find parking, and great shop as a whole (kicked back atmosphere, chill barbers, and great cuts).
First time there and did not know weekends are by appointment only, Julian still squeezed me in for a quick cut.
If you need to freshen up stop by.
me and my son have been getting our hair cut from juice for many years now..he is one of the greatest barber that mpls has to offer! keep up the great work Fades of Gray...
Came in today for the first time and was absolutely satisfied with the work Julian did. Julian is the real deal! He knows how to cut hair. He cut it exactly how I specified. Definitely check this place out!
Best barbers around, they have great prices , good people that work there and also they are really good at details for any cut . Antonio is the man.
It's truly a Mother and Father peaceful atmosphere to work. I'm a Master Barber of 5 years here at Fades of Gray. I've enjoyed every moment here with the owner Julian Gray. I know hear this alot you are definitely blessed by the best. Amen😇.
Great fade with proper line up, second time here. Barbers know customer service. Shop is also very clean, will be back!
Professional barbers. They take their time and give you what you want. Great atmosphere as well.
Julian is AMAZING! My son's cut & lining is always consistent & to perfection. Very clean shop, kid friendly environment, professional barbers & atmosphere. Barbers are very versatile & can cut hair of any type & style. I highly recommend Fades Of Gray!
Came in as a walk-in on Saturday and got lucky that someone had cancelled so I took their spot. Saturdays are by appointment only so I highly recommend calling in advance. Julian did an awesome job. I showed him what I wanted and he made it look exactly like that.
I was in from out of town for a wedding. Searched Google for a quality fade / barber shop and "Fades of Gray" popped up. Couldn't have been more satisfied with Julian's skill, professionalism and care when cutting my hair as well as my friends. Julian has the ability to cut both black, white, Hispanic, etc. hair without any hesitation. Appreciate the last minute walk-in service!
Always a great experience and consistently a high-quality haircut.
Julian and his team are great. Always a good cut. Great and friendly environment.
Great experience! Felt right at home everyone was friendly and sociable. Good prices great cut! Julian hooked me up and all the barbers were very skilled highly recommend this place.
Tony is a great barber i moved to minnesota from kansas city and he has been the best barber that can do the best fades around minnesota . my name is Francisco call ask for him and make your appointment you will not regret it
I recently relocated from Chicago, so I've been looking for a great barbershop. This is the one. Dre gave me a full hour, paying super close attention to detail. His fade was super clean and his line up was super tight. I have very straight hair as an Asian, so I know sometimes it's a little tricky to cut my hair, but Dre delivered perfectly. Dre aside, the ambiance is humble and the barbers are kind. You'll definitely feel welcomed and at home here. I highly suggest you check out this place for a clean cut. I'm definitely going to be back for the foreseeable future.
I've been a resident of Minneapolis for 15 years. In that time period, I've experienced numerous barbers & shops. I think every man can attest to the importance of having a quality barber and the lengths taken to find one. I can say without hesitation that Fades of Gray (IMHO) is one of the best, if not the best, barbershop in the city. My personal barber is Dre, but all the barbers are great, which is a rare find. I would have no qualms, if Dre wasn't available, sitting down in the other barbers (Tony & Julian) chairs knowing I'll receive a superb cut. The shop atmosphere (which is important) is relaxed, conversational and professional. If you're in Minneapolis do yourself (and your hair) a favor and make an appointment. You won't find a better shop or barbers.
The Owner, Julian Gray, he is the epitome of barbers.
Have been getting that consistent, one of a kind, FRESH fade for over 15 years.
I am beyond blessed to have such a superb barber cutting my hair.
Whether you live locally or you're visiting from out of town, to get a true, top of the line cut, I would suggest you don't look any further, Fades Of Gray is THE place to call and make your appointment today!
If Julian Gray (owner) can't get you in his schedule, he has two barbers that work beside him, Dre and Tony, both very consistent too, both take pride in their craft.
Such an outstanding, clean, friendly barbershop that offers consistency with their haircuts.
I'm writing this from my girlfriends Google Account; My name is Cody and I moved to Minneapolis from St. Louis and couldn't find a good barber in the cities! Checked this place out on google and was glad to have found it! The Barbers easily have the best fade in the cities and that's why I continue to go there. Every time I walk in every barber knows me by name and is there to greet me even if I'm going to my barber Dre. If you want to watch Sports Center, Enjoy a conversation with a barber, and have one of the best cuts in the state, I highly recommend going here! Thanks for the amazing haircut every time FOG!
First barber shop I tried when I came to Minneapolis a year and a half ago and glad I picked right from the beginning. Will not be going anywhere else.
Very Professional, clean, always on time if you set an appointment, and warm/welcoming environment with good vibes. Multicultural barbershop that's cuts any type of hair for any age or gender.
If you want a consistent and quality cut go to fades of gray. You won't regret it.
Amazing service! Inviting, family friendly atmosphere with a lovely bunch of fellas. Anthony has serious skills and my son’s hair always looks great! I highly recommend that everyone check this place out.
Best cuts in the Twin Cities ✌🏼❤️
Fades of Gray is the barber shop I’ve been looking for and I am glad that I found it. The shop is professionally managed and singularly focused on providing a great experience – anchored on the vision of Master Barber Julian Gray. You will get the time needed to ensure a great cut without being rushed. Julian’s attention to detail, deep knowledge on how to cut hair right and overall business acumen make a difference. It is clear to all that the provenance of Julian’s ambition to be a Master Barber runs deep. I strongly encourage you to try this shop and I endorse it enthusiastically.
Fades of Gray is a top-notch shop! ESPN is on every television, R&B, Blues or Jazz plays softly in the background and most importantly the cuts are great. The owner Julian runs his shop like a well-oiled machine and creates an inviting atmosphere.
Great barber shop with professional staff and lots of different styles to choose from.
Andre (who I coined as “showtime”, due to his smooth style) has been my beard barber for the last couple years. His steady hands and keen eye, consistently provides a face sculpture that has me coming back each week. I recommend the services of the team of Fades of Gray!
This was my first time, and Julian got right to work. He was very professional and delivered a high quality hair cut. Definitely recommend this for anyone looking
Best barbershop in town! Tony always has me looking fresh. And they play some great beats while you’re getting your cut.
I got lucky finding this place when I moved up here 3 years ago. Professional, laid back, and talented. I get cut by Tony, who's great, but they all are top notch barbers.
Fades of Gray, in my opinion, is the best barbershop in the Twin Cities!! They have the best professionalism and the haircuts are ALWAYS ON POINT!!! Go ahead and live your best life and look good with that cut from Fades of Gray!!
Fades of gray is hands down the best shop in Minneapolis. Tony always cleans my hair up real nice and fresh! Hit em up!
If you're looking for a professional, comfortable, and clean environment than Fades is it! Shout out to the whole team each of them are great. Customer for life.
Hands down, best barber in town. I never leave disappointed. They always know how to do what I request.
My 2 boys and my brother has been clients of Julian for many years my older son started going when he was about 6 years old now he’s 20 years old now that’s a long time should say a lot he’s a great barbar
Julian and his team at Fades of Gray do an impeccable job! They are sheer perfectionist and masters in the art of hair cutting and design. I have been a customer for quite some time now and have only had positive experiences!!! They are personable, professional and create a positive environment in every sense of the word! If you are new to town or seeking to switch from your current service, you must check out Fades of Gray owned and operated by a great entrepreneur in Julian!
Best barber shop period! All the barbers were very professional and welcoming. Anthony took his time and gave me the best bald fade I ever had and will be a customer for life. Do yourself a favor and check them out.
I've been going to Fades of Gray for nearly a year, and I don't plan on going anywhere else! Best barbers around. Great cuts, great people.
I have been going to FOG for a over a year and my experience has been impeccable! The combination of good customer service and a laid back atmosphere makes for a wonderful experience every time. To top it off my haircuts are always on point!!
I highly recommend FOG!
Jimmy did an amazing job with our 18 month old and his 1st haircut!! Everyone one was super friendly. Fabulous experience overall!!
Great barbershop, no real complaints except the pricing of $30 for a cut I usually pay $25 for. But the barber listened to me and no push backs so it may be all good!
Prices are reasonable and the service is great! They are appointment driven and they stay on schedule so no waiting. The staff is nice, friendly, and experience. I get my biweekly haircut here.
Anthony did an amazing job! Been awhile between cuts but he took his time and styled me great! Enjoyed atmosphere of shop as well..
Got my hair cut by Julian on 7/13, and I couldn't be more pleased with my cut. The team that works there is a blast. Cream cheese wontons aside, I recommend this place to anyone looking for a good hair cut.
Great barbers who will actually cut you how you want all three of them. Jimmy is my guy, but you’ll get a great cut from each guy.
Fades of Gray has a fantastic group of barbers with a decent decor and lots of friendly attitudes. The price is very good for a quality haircut, and the barbers here have a decent number of openings in their schedules (just call in advance to make appointments). Great work here!
Best barbershop in Minneapolis, blurriest fades this side of the Mississippi. The superb shop and barbers will not disappoint. Best haircut experience you will ever have.
Julian cuts my hair. He is a very professional and highly skilled barber! I am extremely picky about my hair and he has given me the best cuts I’ve had. I will not go anywhere else! I genuinely recommend Julian at Fades of Gray!
Comfortable seats. Nice waiting area even though they have a lot of business there is not much waiting. Jobs well done.
Julian nailed it! Great haircut, great barber shop!! Will definitely return.
Today was first time visiting this establishment and I was very pleased with the service. I took my son that has special needs and Tony did an excellent job. I think I have found my new barber home and I will be recommending this location.
Nothing needs to be said. If you need a cut in the twin cities, this is the place. Ive been looking for a good barbershop for 4 years now. Ill never go anywhere else.
It's hard to get a decent haircut in MN. This place is the exception. Highly recommended
Outstanding customer service. Tony has cut my hair for the last three years. Always listens to exactly what I want and has the skills to adapt to all styles. One of the best barbershops I have ever been to.
Julian Gray is a wonderful barber and active community member. Julian and his business are constantly involved in events and programs that are adding value to the community and building people up. I have sent many people his way.
One of the best, clean, welcoming barber shops I have found. Great group of guys, great work ethic and very knowledgeable. Prices are reasonably affordable. Great location also.
I just moved to Minneapolis from NYC and like always very hesitant about getting a cut by a new barber. I was very very impressed. They were very professional and did a mini temperature screening for covid and they wore masks. The haircut was exactly what I wanted and was used to. I personally recommend Tony who cut my hair but Julian also was dishing out fresh cuts. Thanks!
I had an appointment with Julian, and he was awesome!
He did excellent work, and was very quick. Got a very clean fade and nice trim up top in about 25 minutes, after far too much growth from lock down.
The price point is also amazing for the high quality of service. I'll definitely be back!
I’ve received the best haircut I’ve gotten in a while at Fades of Gray. Definitely a huge step in quality compared to getting my hair cut at a place like Great Clips. The barber Julian who cut my hair was very detailed. He took his time to make things clean and asked a lot of questions to make sure I was getting the cut I wanted. I wasn’t rushed out the door like other places I’ve been too. I also wanted to mention that I have thick Asian hair so I was afraid to go to a black barber shop to get my hair cut but the guys here definitely know what they’re doing. In the end I left the shop feeling the most confident I’ve ever felt in a long time. I would happily return again!
ATTENTION BEARD WEARERS:: This is where you go to give your face hairs some love and kindness.
I don't get too many haircuts at this point in my life, but I have been going to Tony now for nearly three years for my beard trims... Two thumbs up/Five Star/TenforTen all around service.
Julian is the perfect barber. He did an amazing job, definitely coming back in near future! 👏
Great experience with my son's haircuts. Amazing attention to every detail, expertise, and customer care. Thank you, Julian!
Got a haircut and shave from Julian here yesterday! Great experience!! Very funny, kind, and welcoming. Not to mention a great haircut too!! I look forward to coming back! 🙂
Great place. My son just had his third haircut there. Julian is an artist and does a great job with my son's hair.
I've been to a lot of barbers, a lot of good ones around Minneapolis but these guys here at Fades of Gray, hands down the best. I've got my hair cut a couple times by Tony, and let me tell you this guy is an ARTIST. He's extremely precise and a perfectionist and will make sure your hair looks perfect before letting you off your seat. The other barbers here are also really good and you can tell are passionate and skilled at what they do. If you're considering getting your hair cut anywhere in Minneapolis, there's no use to look anywhere else cos these guys are the best!
Been here twice now for beard trims and Dre has been great highly recommended him! All the other barbers look to do an amazing job. Very friendly environment. Highly recommend to family and friends
