Before the invention of scissors, hair could only be shortened via naturally occurring escalator snags and inevitable bonfire curiosity. Snip strands the newfangled way with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a haircut and a signature face shave at one of Weldon Barber's four Seattle-area locations (up to a $66 value). The experienced, friendly staff at Weldon Barber will expertly chop your mop (up to $36) according to your own gentlemanly style-sense, from a Teddy Roosevelt–inspired presidential fade to FDR's reverse faux-hawk. After your mussed mane has been sculpted into its platonic form, a signature face shave (up to $30)—employing the twin luxuries of hot lather and a razor—prevents friends from using your beard to sand overdue woodshop projects.

- Just an amazing place. Great service, great prices, a relaxing way to get cleaned up without wasting time or money. Services ranging from deluxe to basic and caring, intelligent service. I love this place. – Ashley N., Yelp, Kirkland location
- Form, fit and function. I have only found 5 stylists in my many years of personal grooming who got it, who had the technical skill and creative depth to learn my hair and consistently perform a perfect form, fit and function styling for my hair. Two of those work at Weldon Barber, one in Seatlle and one in Issaquah. – John O., Yelp, Issaquah location
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.
