Hello, and Welcome to your personal hair cutting salon, the Cut Above.

I’m Walt Reed, Master Barber and ‘The Keeper of Tradition’ with 35 years of experience in one of the world’s oldest industries.

My goal for Spokane is to bring Barbering back with all of its services and former glory.

          “Where everything old is new again.”

In addition to meticulous styles and cuts I provide some of the most relaxing services, such as facials, scalp massages and hot towel shaves.

Now you can join the elite group of Spokanites interested in personalized services in a private setting for a totally relaxing and comfortable experience.

Can I tell you more? Give me a call 326-8501 or just drop in.                                  
  Walt Reed is a true craftsman. In his 35 years as a Master Barber he was the preferred barber for many cinima stars in Hollywood, has taught ‘advanced barber skills’ to hundreds of southern Californian hair stylists and has sculpted tens of thousands of heads of hair throughout the West Coast.  
  Walt brought his world of experience to Spokane fifteen years ago. In that time he has helped over a thousand Spokanites take their hair cutting and grooming routine to that next level.  

Judge for yourself, let Walt give you your next haircut. You will surely be impressed enough to boast to your friends and to become one of the elite ‘regulars’ at The Cut Above.

  On the FACTS page of this site you will learn about Walt, the barbering industry and tidbits of information that will fascinate you. The PHOTOS page will constantly change with past and present pictures of clients and other fun things.

Attention MOMS: I am a professional hair cutting trainer and can show you how to
take care of your family's hair after just a few hours of training. Please call for details.

What Men Want

After 35 years in the business of barbering, Walt Reed, at The Cut Above, knows what his male clientele want. Men are very particular about what they want. They also don’t want to be embarrassed by things that look or smell too feminine or language that’s too flowery. They also don’t want anyone to know that they’re using any hair products that color the gray or skin products that nourish their aging skin or thinning hair. Men want masculine products that work fast, but when asked what they use, they’ll usually say, “Whatever my wife uses”. To tackle thinning hair, they’ll use a product which promises them ‘to keep what hair they have’.  They want to return to the years gone by, they’ll ask for the type of services providing stress reduction and products that work.                         That’s it…end of story.

When was the last time you had
a truly great shave?

You haven’t lived until you’ve experienced the pleasures of a great shave at a barber.

At The Cut Above we will start with a hot towel wrapped around your face then massage in a lemon based cream to clean out your pores.

Several more hot towels will follow. You will be relaxed and maybe, just maybe, on the verge of falling asleep. Next comes the cocoa butter massage to soften up the beard and then a warm lather gets brushed into the beard. Now you are ready for the straight edge razor and the closest shave you have ever had.

To finish things off, another hot towel will wrap your face and a final face massage with a soothing vanishing cream.

Now you can live the above shaving experience at The Cut Above.
