Weldon Barber Seattle – Most would agree that James Dean never went out of style. The aloof, manly rebel made a name for himself with his well-groomed, high piled look. His untimely death only magnified the mysterious appeal of this mysterious legend. Maybe this can explain why the latest trends, leaning towards 50’s style, are now seeing the re-emergence of the pompadour.
Contrary to popular belief, the Pompadour is not difficult to achieve. A quality haircut from your stylist at Weldon Barber Seattle, plus the use of some quality products can help you achieve this style. The basic form of this cut incorporates a shape that is longer on the top-front than in the back. Styling is much easier than many would believe. The experts at American Crew say that after shampooing and conditioning with quality products such as American Crew Daily Shampoo and condition with American Crew Stimulating Conditioner (available at Weldon Barber Seattle), skip the blow-dryer and towel dry your
hair. Apply a liberal amount of stiff styling gel such as American Crew Superglue beginning at the root and smoothing it to the ends. Use a comb to spread the gel and pull the hair up at the root and then back. Let your hair dry naturally.
As popular as the traditional pompadour has become, some are opting for an update to this greaser hairstyle. One of the most stylish ways to alter this look is to shave the sides. This simple change from the traditional style adds an edge that brings the cut into the 21st century.
Whether opting for the original, or modernizing the look, the pompadour is a style for those who want to make an impression. It has the ability to resurrect the first “rebel without a cause” or reflect a bold, modern edge. If you’re interested in exploring this style,
or another new look, the professionals at Weldon Barber Seattle are here to guide you through the process and help you do it right.
Let us help you transform your look and make a bold impression.

Weldon Barber Seattle has a question: Is a Long Mens Hairstyle Right For You?
Thanks to American Crew for this mens hairstyle picture!
Have you been thinking about wearing your hair longer than you’ve ever worn it before? Or perhaps you’ve been giving some thought to those bygone days when you were bold enough to let your hair brush your shoulders. Whatever is motivating you to let hair grow, there are some important factors you need to consider before taking the plunge and opting for a long mens hairstyle.
Let’s be frank. Men who wear their hair long are not common, making up only two to five percent of the population. And this includes men whose hair is long but doesn’t quite reach their shoulders. Add to that the fact that long hair is often considered feminine. This means you’re going to stand out in the crowd of your brethren who keep their hair shorn. As a result, you need to be an extremely confident individual to withstand the occasional ribbing, taunting or even physical challenges that you will more than likely receive from time to time.
Your Place of Employment
The second factor that is going to determine whether sporting a long mens hairstyle is feasible for you is your place of employment. Most offices have a dress code, whether spoken or unspoken, and you’ll need to determine if a long mens hairstyle fits in with your particular office’s rules about appearance. In particular, study how successful men in your company dress. If you expect to advance in your career, you may want to mimic the clothes and hairstyles of these individuals.

Weldon Barber Seattle – The Purple Power Tie?
It’s no doubt that one of the reasons that you visit Weldon Barber Seattle is because you know that one of the key components to maintaining an image of power is being well groomed and having an updated style.
However, the symbols of power change over time. Once you’ve received that trendy cut at Weldon Barber Seattle, take a look at this article from Esquire.com – the power tie may no longer be red:
The Soft Power of Obama’s State of the Union Tie
January 26, 2011 at 11:13AM
by The Fashion Editors
Maybe it’s a good thing, or quite possibly a bad thing, that the most controversial thing about Tuesday night’s State of the Union address was the color of the president’s tie. It was purple (or if you want to get technical about it, lavender), and as much as we admire his symbolic commitment to bipartisanship — no red or blue for this guy — there’s some substance to his style.
A bit of history: As far back as Roman empire, the rich and powerful would show they were rich and powerful by wearing clothes dyed in Tyrian purple, a shade derived from the expensive and rare boiled shells of the murex sea snail. After the whole decline and fall debacle, the color was taken up by generations of European royalty who’d wear robes in imperial purple. Ever since, variations of purple have been synonymous with wealth, status, and valor — see the Purple Heart, created in 1932 to honor American soldiers who have been wounded or killed while serving in battle.
