Rudy’s Barbershop, now open in West Seattle: New WSB sponsor

Today is opening day in West Seattle for Rudy’s Barbershop, which has just become the newest WSB sponsor. Here’s what Rudy’s would like you to know about their business:

Since its Seattle conception in 1993, Rudy’s Barbershop has been committed to providing top-notch haircuts for men and women at an affordable price. Rudy’s offers a one-of-a-kind experience with a curated blend of art, music, and sense of place. Every shop is a cross-generational community center, buzzing with creative energy.

Rudy’s is incredibly excited to announce its newest location in the proud neighborhood of West Seattle, at 4480 Fauntleroy Way SW.

The location will soon feature a large neon sign, urging the community to “GO WEST,” professing the aforementioned pride of the people of West Seattle.

In January, Rudy’s teamed up with West Seattle’s Delridge Community Center to provide free haircuts to the community. Cuts took place in Rudy’s modified barbershop airstream, and with the help of the West Seattle community and other nearby neighborhoods, they raised almost $1,000 for the Delridge Community Center. This money will help them fund after-school programs, community classes, children’s basketball teams, and many other beneficial activities for the people of West Seattle in the future.

No need to wait for an appointment; walk into any Rudy’s Barbershop, any day of the week, 9 am-9 pm, and get a great haircut. Satisfaction guaranteed.

We thank Rudy’s Barbershop for sponsoring independent, community-collaborative neighborhood news via WSB; find our current sponsor team listed in directory format here, and find info on joining the team by going here.

    It’s great to see they were involved in the WS community before they even opened shop! Happy to have them here!

    Any updates on the Caffe Vita outlet that’s supposed to be located in the northeastern part of the building?

    • WSB March 6, 2015 (5:49 pm)

      Nope but we’ve been meaning to ask.

  • Seaview March 6, 2015 (5:58 pm)

    I’d rather have Diva back.

  • m March 6, 2015 (6:22 pm)

    I appreciate the exterior art and neon sign. Would like to see more outdoor art in WS

    Thrilled Rudy’s West Seattle is now open – See you in a couple days…

    I really miss Diva Espresso, but I’m glad that at least it’s the same old building and that they didn’t demolish it. My fiance and I shared our first kiss at Diva in July of 2010 not long after we started dating… so I think it’s appropriate that I’m planning to get my hair cut at this Rudy’s location this coming June for our wedding. Things change, but life goes on.

    I’d like to thank David for his comment above, which celebrates the past AND embraces the future. Life goes on! I’m proud to call West Seattle home.

    An even more expansive interior photo than the one above is on the Rudy’s FB page tonight, fwiw:

    anyone know what they charge? It’s not on their website that I can tell…

  • miws March 7, 2015 (7:18 am)

    Jan, this link from their photos on their FB Page shows a price board. I was able to make out some of the prices:


    Dunno if the sign is from their WS location, or another, or if the prices are the same at each.



  • Heidi A March 7, 2015 (1:06 pm)

    Reasonable prices for adults, $32 for short hair and $39 for adults. But no kid cut price like many, so 32 for each of my sons. Kind of steep for a boy’s cut. But they were great with kids

  • West Seattle Hipster March 7, 2015 (6:32 pm)

    $32 and $39 reasonable prices for simple haircuts? Good thing there are many more choices in West Seattle.

    We moved to WSeattle three years ago and I have been meaning to find a stylist/colorist on this side of the bridge.

    As many of you can relate, this quest was not related to running away from my stylist/colorist, but rather, to coordinating such a regular routine with someone on the other side of the bridge LOL.

    Happy to report that I walked in to Rudy’s today, was lucky enough to meet Stephanie (who also lives on this side of the bridge), and she gave me exactly the color I asked for along with a whole lot of friendly banter.

    So. Thanks to WSB for this post, Rudy’s for comin’ on over, and to Stephanie for making my day!

    Can’t wait to see who lands in the spot slotted for a cafe…

    • WSB March 11, 2015 (5:59 pm)

      MM, unless something has changed, it was supposed to be Caffe Vita. I haven’t had time to ask. Did they tell you otherwise?

  • MM March 12, 2015 (9:33 am)

    I just heard “cafe” and thought it would be a great combination. Especially if they’ll sell you a cuppa while you’re waiting for a head full of color to set LOL.

Sorry, comment time is over.
