It's a type of hair style too
The meaning is to "decrease in brightness" so light can fade, but this is also the case with anything else. For example a camera shot fades into darkness or in the theater the scene fades out during transition. The only other meaning is a "fade" in golf, when the ball deviates too far from the intended direction.
