If you insist on a resolution, it'd be : The barber doesn't need to shave.

The paradox states "the barber shaves everyone who does not shave himself/herself, but no one else.", this means that another barber canot shave him as he would then be one of the people not shaving himself and the barber in question can not shave himself as he can only shave people who do not shave themselves.  This leaves one logical conclusion, the barber does not shave.
