Balmy summer weather is replaced by the crisp fall breeze, long yellow buses now inhibit the way to work and we’re saying sayonara to buzz cuts for something with a bit more warmth. Fall is here and we are smack dab in the middle of back to school season. Here are some Weldon tips for the great season that so many retailers favorably call: BTS.
1. Products for Fall-
Weldon Pick: The Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Line-This line is ideal for the season. The early summer sun won’t be here to wake you up, but “the revitalizing tingle of Tea Tree Special, the citrus sensation of Tea Tree Lemon Sage, and the soothing scent of Tea Tree Lavender Mint” sure will. Essential tea tree oil is great for back to school as it stimulates the hair and skin while combating problem skin and oily scalps.
2. Father and Son Special- Schedule your cut with Dad or bring in your sons and receive a father-son 10% discount courtesy of Weldon Barber! All stores qualify.
3. Student Discounts-Since it’s no longer appropriate to have your buddy “buzz” your head, come in and bring your valid student ID for 20% off products and services at Weldon. Student discounts apply at all Weldon stores on select days.
Use a good shaving brush!
Don’t get scared. Although they may look like your wife’s blush brush, your shaving brush is really man’s best friend. The primary use of the brush is to get a full lather of shaving cream on your face, but it does more than that. It absorbs hot water and mixes the water with your shaving cream for a smooth shave.
Use your brush and stroke back and forth, up and down across your face and neck. The hot water and shaving cream combo creates a thick emollient lather for moisture and maximum coverage.Your shaving brush also exfoliates and soothes your skin, something your fingers definitely can’t do. Best of all, by stroking up and down, you lift your whiskers so that they are standing upright in your lather–perfect for a razor burn-free shave.
Our favorite brushes are The Art of Shaving’s Badger Brushes. They’ve got some different styles, but these brushes are ideal for attaining the perfect lather…plus they’re soft on your skin. Who says shaving has to be unpleasant? Grab yourself a quality shaving brush and you might just have fun.
