Chop it Up Barbershop's seasoned shearers creatively prune all variety of head topiaries while refereeing intelligent chatter about everything from sports to politics. During a luxurious 30-minute trim, locks bask under clippers’ trendsetting radiance, escaping the taxing responsibility of shielding scalps from sunbeams and wigs in search of a place to roost. Burst free from the shackles of shouted bar-side anecdotes and the Chinese fingertraps of crowded billiards halls to challenge a buddy at the central pool table. The clack of spheres gently weaves through Chop It Up Barbershop's open space, complete with hardwood floors and dynamically designed black and white walls.
Studio Salon stylists Amanda and Miceala work hair magic that doesn't break the bank. All haircuts include a complimentary shampoo and style, and services such as deep-conditioning, glaze, and chlorine treatments are discounted when purchased as part of a package. Relaxers and keratin treatments leave locks shiny and smooth, whereas highlights or ombre color add depth to 'dos. They can also volumize hair with tape-in or microbead extensions and prep guests for important events with special-occasion hair and makeup.
Licensed cosmetologist Heather McCulley aims to maximize beauty by honing in on hair. As a certified lash technician, she bonds extensions to eyelashes that imbue blinks with smoky drama. Her fusion and copper-tube hair extensions lengthen strands by up to 22 inches, enough to perfectly fit across Shaq's car's rims. With facial waxing services, she eradicates fuzz from lips and eyebrows.
A luxurious interior welcomes men to Weldon Barber, which blends a warm, modern aesthetic with rustic accents, such as a fireplace tucked into a stone wall. While waiting for a cut or shave, guests sink into plush leather chairs and sip complimentary coffee, cola, or bottled water while feasting eyes on a flat-screen TV or a selection of men's magazines.
During signature haircuts—the shop’s bread and butter—stylists commence to pamper with a shampoo and a scalp massage before snipping away extraneous strands to craft a custom haircut inspired by a favorite celebrity or janitorial mop. A delicate detailing of brows, ears, and the nose eliminates rogue facial hairs, and a hot face towel and neck shave leave visages smooth. Clients can pair cuts with a timesaver or a signature shave to quickly and comprehensively free jawlines of five o’clock shadows. Throughout the entire andro-aesthetic adventure, stylists lavish clients with Aveda, Jack Black, and American Crew products.
