After this past weekend at Hoopfest we’ve realized that you don’t have to be a guy to be a champion at Weldon. Our 6th grade girls team became bracket champions after a long two days of basketball. The team, Weldon Barber Two, came back and won the championship after falling to the consolation bracket early in the tournament. They actually won the championship by defeating the only team they had lost to earlier. Talk about determination! Their cheer was “Weldon, Weldon, Weldon Barber!”– truly a great cheer, we hope they keep on chanting this one well into their WNBA careers.
All four of our Weldon teams were spectacular. Congrats to all the hardworking players! Team Weldon Barber One: Brian Johnson, Nicklas Marshall, Shamus O’Doherty and Jordan Tampien. Weldon Barber Two: Shafali Byrd, Megan Dean, Megan Nilsson and Jenna Place. Weldon Barber Three: Janson Card, Matte Kondryszyn, Carson Schlect and Daniel Webb. Weldon Barber Four: John Bergeleen, Leon Dean, Stephen Sanchez and David Stratton.
We had a lot of fun this year and were thrilled to support such a great event. If you see any of our Weldon superstars out on the streets or possibly playing some ball, remember to congratulate them for such a great job on the courts!

Weldon Barber is hitting the courts this weekend for Hoopfest! We will be sponsoring two courts and four local teams for this year’s tournament. Our four Weldon Teams will be competing in different brackets with a young girl’s team, a young boy’s team, a high school aged boy’s team and one adult men’s team.
During the weekend’s festivities the downtown Spokane Weldon Barber will be transformed into the Weldon Barber Rejuvenation Center: a home base for the hardworking players packed with food and water. We’ll treat our players the very best, just like we treat our customers, though they might have to wait until the tournament ends for their hot towel shave and scalp massage. We will also have the Weldon girls outside cheering on the players while giving away $5 discounts cards and mini stressballs/basketballs.
Keep an eye out for the Weldon girls to get your discount (our logo will be on their shirts) and be sure to check back in with the Weldon blog to see how your favorite barbershop’s teams are fairing in the big tournament.
At Weldon our people are the most important. They are key to the “Weldon experience” that we so often talk about. The Barbers are truly the heart and soul of this company. Every so often we will feature one of our barbers on the blog because, although you already know it, they are the best!

We all know what Dad really wants for Father’s Day…right? It’s that great tie you’ve bought him every year since you were ten, even though he retired five years ago? Or maybe it’s that awesome #1 Dad mug you picked up at a garage sale? Let’s admit it, most Father’s days we don’t know what to get Dad and come to think of it, he doesn’t know what he wants either.
Quite frustrating. Well, here’s some gift ideas that Dad may or may not know that he needs and wants.
Take a peek!
A great Father’s Day deal at Weldon: Buy Any 2 Products OR Buy Any 1 Product and a Weldon Gift Card…AND Get a free black travel bag.
Other great products for Dad? American CREW has a host of gifts for Dad! Maybe the Shave Duo Gift Set for $24.95 if Dad’s looking a little scruffy? The Sport Trio Gift Set gets Dad his shampoo, conditioner, body wash…and a set of Callaway golf balls and tees for $29.95! The Daily Duo Gift Set has the Citrus Mint Refreshing Shampoo and Conditioner for $19.95…or maybe you try the Vintage Trio Gift Set with the shampoo, conditioner, shave cream and American CREW Stainless Steel Flask for $33.95?
You can’t go wrong giving Dad a Weldon Gift Card for a Weldon Signature Haircut or one of our Weldon shaves. Mom gets spa treatment for Mother’s Day and Dad gets a relaxing cut, scalp massage and shave…they go hand in hand and we’re going to bet his experience either matches or exceeds hers.
So, take your pick. Dads–feel free to drop a hint to your kids and trust us, these tokens of appreciation sure beat out the old neck tie!

Looks like Weldon guys are in good company. Patrick Ianni, Seattle Sounder and member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic U-23 team, was in for a cut at the Kirkland Weldon just the other day. A Weldon Signature Haircut works for anyone–but sometimes it’s nice to know that the guys on our flat screens are coming in too.
On May 31, 2009 The Inland Empire Cosmetology Association welcomed 152 competitors to their “Haute Hair” competition in Spokane.
On May 31, 2009 The Inland Empire Cosmetology Association welcomed 152 competitors to their “Haute Hair” competition in Spokane. Weldon Barber’s April Miller, from the downtown Spokane shop, won 1st place in the “Gents Fashion Hair Cutting” portion of the competition and Kelsi Bates of the downtown Spokane Weldon won 2nd place in the same category. Weldon barbers really stole the show at the competition by placing 5th and 6th place as well.
