Like Samson, a man's physical strength is directly proportional to the length of his hair, which is why The Beatles spent most of the 1960s crushing classical marble busts with their bare hands. Trade some strength for a new look with today's Groupon to Knockouts Haircuts for Men, a guy-centric salon in Buckhead that's been featured on The Today Show. Choose between the following two options:
- For $15, you get a Heavyweight haircut (a $50 value).
- For $35, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage (a $100 value).
The décor of Knockouts mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—patrons look better when they leave. After a consultation with one of the scissor-handed stylists, your Heavyweight haircut will kick off with a relaxing shampoo. As a stylist snips, shaves, and shears, direct your attention toward the many flat-screens showing all the day's top sports and a few of its bottom ones, such as mixed martial horseshoes and the World's Slowest Man tournament. After the follicular wreckage is cleared with a second round of shampoo and a rinse, your stylist will treat you to a neck-tingling scalp massage before arranging head-strands to your specifications and shellacking them in place.
Alternatively, already dapper dudes can instead dispel the lingering aches and pains from their stunt-double audition with Knockouts' 60-minute Swedish massage. For a solid hour, a licensed massage therapist will knead out the superficial layers of muscle with long strokes. These smooth, gliding strokes ease muscle tension and promote relaxation, easing overworked muscles and melting tension into a conveniently positioned bucket. An effective treatment for stress reduction and the improvement of blood circulation, Swedish massage also relieves anxiety, depression, and trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from your ear by a street magician.
- The best part is the staff, cute girls in cute outfits with great service, who listen to what kind of haircut YOU want - none of this hoity-toity "I think you would look best like this" stuff. – TommyTT, Citysearch
- My experience at Knockouts was great. And it was more of an experience than a haircut. Nice, friendly staff, two shampoos, and hot steamed towel. – fastrk, Kudzu
