Barber Classes From A Fort Worth Legend


The Art of the Fade: Master Class

Rudy the Barber is Fort Worth’s foremost classic barber and expert on modern fades and their endless variations. From gaining loyal customers to building and operating a profitable business, Rudy brings 30 years of hard-won experience in the craft and business of barbering.

In this exclusive master class, barbers and stylists will master the skills, techniques, and tools it takes to deliver a clean fade and flawless styling.

  • Low Fade, Burst Fade, and Bald Fade with Scissor Cut On Top: Observe Rudy as he walks you through a complete cut, explains his own step-by-step process, and works with you to apply your skills with hands-on instruction.
  • Edge Up: Also known as a line-up, the edge-up is a delicate technique to straighten the hairline and give a polished finish to every fade.

Highly technical faded haircuts are ubiquitous in modern barbering, and fades are quickly becoming the preferred option for short back and side cuts. If you’re a working barber or stylist, now is the time to learn.

The complete master class costs $200 for observation and lectures, and an additional $100 for hands-on instruction.

Only five spots are available, so follow the button below to apply.
