Wedon Barber Seattle is thrilled to have had the opportunity to participate in “Movember,” a joint effort by the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Lance Armstrong’s “Live Strong” charities. The goal of “Movember” is to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer.
It’s estimated that one in 6 American Men will get Prostate Cancer in their lifetime. In fact, it is one of the major causes of mortality in US men, second only to lung cancer. Because of these startleing statistics, we are proud to be the Seattle barber to get this fundraiser going with our generous participants.
Weldon barber Seattle would like to thank all of our “Mo Bros and Mo Sistas” for their efforts. Let’s support them and make a difference in the battle against prostate cancer.
About The Campaign – Weldon Barber Seattle
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
Once registered at www.movember.com, men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research
The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
Movember – a global movement
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.1 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and Ireland. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.
In 2010, over 64,500 US Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board, raising $7.5 million USD.

According to Weldon Barber Seattle, coloring the gray is NOT just for women anymore
Coloring the hair to get rid of the gray is no longer limited to women – men at the Weldon Barber Seattle area locations are doing it too – to maintain a youthful appearance. And they are doing it in ever-increasing numbers.
Hair coloring used to be viewed as the province of women. A woman with graying hair was and continues to be viewed as old and past her prime. A gray-haired man, on the other hand, is often perceived by society as distinguished-looking. And while men have been coloring their hair to get rid of the gray for some time now, it’s been a tightly-held secret.
That’s changing today. More and more men are not only coloring their hair to hide the gray at the Weldon Barber Seattle area locations, they aren’t ashamed to admit it. Here are two reasons that explain this rapidly growing trend.
To Look As Well As Feel Younger
Men of the Baby Boomer generation are not only living longer, but remaining vitally healthy well into their fifties, sixties, and even seventies. Many of these men have decided that they want their appearance to match the way they feel – healthy, vital, and young. And that means getting rid of the gray hair that is a sure sign of aging. There are others whose hair has turned gray prematurely and, despite the popularity of men like Anderson Cooper, don’t want to be perceived as older than they actually are.

Weldon Barber Seattle offers Jack Black Beard Lube
Jack Black’s famous and effective Beard Lube is available at Weldon Barber Seattle area locations. Watch this video to listen to a song written and performed by Emily Crawford & Ryan Keith. They call Beard Lube “the world’s most amazing shaving cream.” Read the lyrics below the video. (Weldon Barber Seattle made just one eensy-weensy change to the last line of this ‘Ode to Jack Black Beard Lube!” (emilycrawford.bandzoogle.com)
Weldon Barber Seattle is excited to share these lyrics with you:
Its a three in one shave in a bright blue tube
For your face or your head, you gotta try beard lube
never in your life will your skin feel quite so smooth
Benefits of a straight razor shave at Weldon Barber Seattle area locations
Why get a straight razor shave at Weldon Barber Seattle, Kirkland, Issaquah, or Mill Creek? First of all, unless you want to resemble Brian “The Beard” Wilson of the 2010 World Series Championship team the San Francisco Giants (and some guys do), some degree of shaving is necessary.
As an interesting pit of history, let’s look at the safety razor and the development of the electric shaver. In 1904 a US patent was granted to King C. Gillette for a ‘safety razor.’ As a salesman who was also an inventor, he was interested in creating something that was effective and safe, but perhaps more importantly, purchased over and over again by satisfied customers! Col. Jacob Schick, while exploring Alaska and British Columbia after his retirement from the 22nd US Infantry, found it quite difficult and unpleasant to shave. He vowed to create a dry shaver, which went on the market in 1929
You probably shave with a safety razor or electric shaver. The problem is that both systems are problematic. You’re likely to get cuts and nicks with your safety razor, plus there is all the environmental concern with throw-away cartridges and plastic razors. Unfortunately, the ‘modern’ electric shaver does a relatively poor job. Plus you may get razor burn, ingrown hairs, or razor ‘bumps.’ Continue reading “Straight Razor Shave at Weldon Barber Seattle Area Locations” »
Weldon Barber Seattle likes to recommend superior grooming products, designed for men
It’s easy for Weldon Barber Seattle to recommend the Jack Black brand. Why? Because the Jack Black line has been designed to appeal to guys, keeping the skin care routine simple and using products that are specially formulated for a man’s needs.
We especially like the fact that the skin care products are dermatologist tested, fragrance free and without coloring agents. Just real stuff for real guys!
According to the Jack Black website, here’s what makes them different from other brands:
‘Fuss Free. We know men don’t want to hassle with an overly complicated routine. Products are simple and easy to use, yet multi-functional, so you get multiple skin benefits in a one easy step.
Man Focused. Every product is designed specifically for a guy’s needs. From a superior shave to complete body maintenance, formulas are built from the ground up with a distinct focus on what guy’s want from a product. Each product is designed to provide immediate, noticeable results, and an improvement in the overall quality and condition of skin. Continue reading “Weldon Barber Seattle says ‘Get Jack Black’” »

Staff at Weldon Barber in the Seattle Area Recently Learned About David Wagner … and the Experience that Changed His Life
It only takes a moment to make someone’s day – to become a daymaker – and sometimes those moments even change lives as I discovered a number of years ago. I was working in my salon one day when a client came in to have her hair styled. I was surprised to see her, since it was right in the middle of her five-week period between hair cuts. I figured that she must have an important social engagement, so I asked her about her evening plans. Continue reading “Weldon Barber Seattle & Daymakers!” »
