Congratulations to Kelsi Bates, a Weldon Barber in Downtown Spokane for winning 3rd place in the IECA Hair Competition. This year was Kelsi’s second time placing at the competition. Nice Job Kelsi! Enjoy this a quick interview with Kelsi and take home some of her hair tips.
Tell us about the competition. What style did you cut?
I had my model dressed up as Maverick from Top Gun. I cut a tight fade on the sides and left it long and piecey in the front. To achieve the style I used Aveda Pomade on his damp hair to create that messy look with high shine and medium hold.
What kind of guy does this style work for?
This style is really great for anyone, but looks best with masculine facial features. Use pomade to slick hair back for a more sophisticated, professional look or tousle your hair for a trendier look.
Any recommendations for Weldon guys that you’d like to share?
I would say that all guys should use the right shampoo and conditioner for their hair. The right shampoo and conditioner will vary depending on the guy, but it will keep hair manageable and keep scalps healthy (so guys can hold on to their hair as long as possible). I like Aveda’s Pure Formance Shampoo and Conditioner for most hair types because it targets itchy, flaky or even oily scalps resulting in fantastic, soft hair.
