I’ve been coming to Royal Fades for about four years now. Karl is an amazing barber who’s always professional, reliable, and has excellent skill. I can always count on him to give me a dapper, modern and sleek cut and style. Highly recommended!

The best place for a hair cut. Clean, positive energy inside, and all barbers can cut. I have been going to Karl B. for over a year. He is an artist with the razor and scissors. Takes his time and puts his heart I his work. Always walk out with a good cut. I highly recommend this place and Karl.

Richard talks with you and listens too. Knows what hairstyle based on hair type as well. Very clean and professional shop. Solid line of products to buy to look fresh out the chair everyday. Will be making it my go to spot!
- Abdul Rehman
Just got back in today after three months. I was looking rather shaggy and Camille fixed me up. They may have been closed for a while, but Camille has not lost a step. Always a perfect cut, and a good chat to go along with it. One Touch is also super clean, and their COVID procedures are as tight as a #1 clipper!

I’ve been coming here since I moved to this neighbourhood 5 years ago and I’ve been dealing with Blade ever since. Every time I get a clean hair cut. The way Blade works is proper! Clean and efficient. Always worth the wait! I highly recommend Conrad’s and definitely wait for Blade to give you the best hair cut of your life 👌🏽

Went here for the first time because my barber shop wasn’t open. I got there and in the first 5 mins someone was ready to cut my hair barely any wait time. He did a really great job on the cut too. Definitely recommend this place
