Seattle 'stache stylist?
September 12, 2012 9:50 AM   Subscribe

Can you recommend a barber or stylist in Seattle who's good with facial hair?

After a year or so of letting my beard and moustache grow like a hobo, occasionally trimming with clippers when I start scaring small children, I'd like to have someone who actually knows what they're doing give it a professional shaping. There are a number of charities around town that have beard/moustache-based fundraising competitions, and I've had enough people compliment me in my not-particularly-well-groomed state that I think maybe with a little help I could be a contender. So... where do I go for help?

North of the ship canal would be ideal, but if there's someone awesome in Shoreline or SeaTac, I'd love to hear about them.

Best answer: I'm sorry no one answered your question. I am not in the Seattle area, nor have I even visited the Seattle area.

That being said: African-American barber shops. There will be the initial shock of (assuming you are Caucasian) "there's a white boy in here/I'm the only white guy in here," but once you find someone who knows what you want and delivers, tip them well and keep going back.

Best answer: I go to Capelli's. They have three locations. I've found several stylists who did a good job shaping and trimming my beard. When you call to book an appointment, ask for someone who likes to work with beards. A beard trim is $15.

I do think having a professional do the trimming has made a big difference in how well-groomed I look as I grow my beard longer.
