New Spots for a New Do
NWSource: Seattle Style
There’s no mistaking that this is a place for guys. In the waiting area, a table that looks suspiciously like a poker table is covered with men’s magazines, and flat-screen TV runs ESPN continuously. The look is warm and masculine with slate gray floors, caramel colored woods, modern metal accents and comfy brown leather chairs.
This well-conceived design does everything possible to make the experience comfortable, casual, and just plain easy for guys. Each self-contained station is all-inclusive (chair, shampoo bowl) and is tastefully partitioned for privacy. What man wants to talk about his hair color, brow shaping, or ear hairs for all to hear? Clients can stop at the mirrored valet on the way out for a quick shoe shine, tie straightening, and complimentary breath mints.
As for the cut, Weldon has a variety to choose from. The Weldon Signature starts with a hot face-towel, then a scalp-and-shoulder massage, hair cut, detailing (eyebrows, ears, nose), hot towel neck shave, and grooming. A second shampoo is always offered to eradicate those annoying snipped hairs that refuse to be brushed away. The Weldon Classic includes a shampoo, hair cut, and grooming, and you?re in-and-out in 20 minutes. There?s also a maintenance cut and additional services such as camouflage color (takes 3-5 minutes), customized highlights, and brow clean-up. Neck shaves are complimentary.
The Issaquah location is the first in a wave of Weldon Barber Shops set to open in the area. Like everything else, they’ve made it easy for guys to get there, strategically picking locations for their convenient parking and neighborhood accessibility. And the Fatburger next door is one more good reason to go.
Look for new Weldon Barber Shops in the future. A location in Kirkland is opening at the end of February, Bellevue will follow later this year, and possible Seattle locations are being scouted.
