Mike Shelton: Uptown Barber Lounge

For the community of Bentonville, Uptown Barber Lounge is more than just a place to get a haircut or a beard trim. Highlighting the experience of a barbershop, it provides a sense of community to everyone who sits down in a chair. 

“I tell people all the time that you can get a haircut anywhere, but you can only experience one at Uptown,” said co-owner Mike Shelton. “We’re really big on our culture and atmosphere. We just wanted to have that environment where people come in and have a good time.”   

Shelton shared more with host Zach Parker on the latest episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including how Uptown Barber Lounge is navigating the early stages of reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic, future plans for expansion and his previous career as a hip-hop artist.
