For almost 100 years, the LaPlante’s have been doing hair. Mark LaPlante took over his grandfather and father’s legacy after high school and became a licensed instructor at LaPlante School of Hairstyling where he later opened a barbering program. Mark followed his passion of barbering and opened Blades on Washington in Downtown Saint Louis in August of 2009.
Blades On Washington provides old school barbering services for men and women with a modern twist. Mark and his team are on a mission to give Saint Louis the freshest haircuts, hot shaves, color, and more.
At Blades On Washington, you will get more than just a haircut and a shave. It’s our goal to provide a first-class barbershop experience without putting a hole in your wallet. Your experience will be memorable and fun, relaxing and rejuvenating, cool and stylish.
