History                                                                    Established in 2013, we are a brother shop to local favorite Silver & Gold Barbers and Stylists. S & G Classic offers the same quality service one has come to expect from the Silver & Gold family, in a traditional barbershop setting. We wanted to create not just the style and technique of classic barbering, but the feel and experience of an old school barbershop. Thanks to barbers Joe, Austin, Carrie and Keyton, we have done just that. Our barbers have years of experience and are licensed in traditional barbering. S & G Classic is just what the name implies, a classic barbershop that remains true to the spirit of the original barbershops.


  One of Boulder's longest standing businesses, Silver & Gold Barbers and Stylists is a barber salon that offers family friendly services, providing cuts, color and styling services to men, women, and children. Backed by over one hundred and twenty-five years of combined experience, our team of licensed barbers and cosmetologists excels in straight-razor shaves, edge-ups, beard trims, all aspects of clipper cutting on all hair types. We do precision scissor cutting, texturizing and layering, as well as the latest in coloring and highlighting techniques. We pride ourselves on knowing the current styles and trends in hair fashion. Our men's cuts include a complementary eucalyptus steam towel and a straight razor shave on the neckline. We also offer the very popular five minute Redken Camo Color, to minimize and blend in grey hair, for a subtle, natural looking change.                                                     For the ladies we include a light blow dry and basic style, with extensive styling available at additional cost. If you're considering a color change, our colorists will gladly help you find the right shade to compliment your skin tone and personal style. We also offer brow and lip waxing services. We are a no appointment shop, so stop in at your convenience. Appointments are available for color services.


   Our founder Fred Saiz began cutting hair in Boulder in 1946 after returning from WWII. He was the recipient of two Bronze Stars for valor. Fred moved from Rocky Ford Co. to Boulder to work at the University Barbershop, which was located on the Hill, just south of 13th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. After managing the shop for several years, Fred and his wife Kate opened Silver & Gold Barbers and Stylists in 1959. Fred continued to cut at Silver & Gold well into his nineties and passed away in September of 2015 at the age of 96. Throughout the years we have remained true to our barbershop origins, but now offer services for the entire family. In our second generation of family ownership, we are owned and managed by Fred & Kate's daughter, Laurie Saiz Parks. Laurie began working at Silver & Gold in the early 1980's and today splits her time between the cutting floor and spending time with Kate, now in her nineties.
