Dean Lewis, Gene Bottex, and No No Farrie are the owners of Fade Away Cutz barbershop located in Atlanta’s Historic West End neighborhood. These barbers have started an initiative called, Fade to Success, in which their focus is to reach and mentor young African American men in their community. Each Tuesday they travel between Adamsville Recreational Center and Thomasville Recreational Center to offer free haircuts to the young men in the neighborhood. While cutting hair they engage in discussion with the youth and talk about issues such as sex, drugs, crime, money and school.
