The barbers at The Men’s Room groom guests with stylish haircuts, beard trims, and head, face, and neck shaves. In Place Magazine characterizes the shop’s “black leather furniture” and “stainless steel fixtures,” noting that each seat treats clients to a personal flat-screen TV.
The staff at Tocco Classico helps clients to cultivate confidence with a variety of salon and spa treatments. From behind a row of black-leather styling chairs, stylists perform cuts and coloring services that can redefine a client's image and erase evidence of having chased loose change into a cotton-candy machine. Aestheticians target blemishes and imperfections with facial treatments or quickly remove unwanted hair with waxing. Massage therapists reward shoulders, backs, and legs with relaxing bodywork treatments. The spa also keeps clients looking food after they leave by stocking a variety of hair products for ongoing upkeep.
Specializing solely in whitening smiles, the technicians of Express Teeth Whitening Center help fade blemishes on teeth, allowing patrons to smile with confidence, whether it's for that job interview or presentation, or to just feel more at ease, all without the hassle of a dental-office visit. For teeth-whitening treatments, a technician will assess the type of treatment that will work best for the client by using a mouth tray with either 36% or 44% carbamide peroxide gel or a cheek retractor with 16% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. After that, the technician will provide the client with protective glasses and activate the stain-zapping power with a blue light. The combination whitens teeth two to seven shades and produces immediate results, unlike going back in time to un-drink a year's worth of cups of coffee.
Whether you've got a flair for flares, an addiction to cigarette jeans, or you push toward pedal-pushing pedal pushers, The Blues Jean Bar has the stone-washed, pre-torn, or impeccable indigo of your dreams. The shop is designed like a tavern, keeping the savory styles of more than 40 top labels (for both men and women) “on tap.” Saunter up to the wood-hewn bar and ask the friendly denim-smith to whip you up a pair that combines your favorite wash, size, cut, and aroma. He or she will rifle through shelves stocked with labels such as Citizens of Humanity, 7 For All Mankind, and Red Engine to find your fittingest fit in the latest fashion, eliminating the drudgery of surfing wave after indistinguishable wave of blue. D Magazine, which recently named the bar the Best Place to Buy Jeans, calls it "almost as fun as a real bar." Prices range from $150 to $225, depending on the label and style.
Inside The Luxury Box's modern shop, scruffy appearances become smooth under the care of classic barbering services and a shave performed with a hot-towel straight razor. Scissor snips tame feral follicles as a stylist fashions locks into contemporary styles. Warm towels enwrap faces using heat and gushy pet names to soften rigid hairs before a straight-edge razor glides effortlessly across the skin. Each barber chair hosts a flat-screen TV to distract clients while their hair evolves into the hair of their future. Pre-man-pampering waiting areas swallow customers in the comfortable bellies of luxe leather chairs, while complimentary beverages hydrate parched palates and sports memorabilia hangs on exposed-brick walls to stoke debates about whether data analysis should still be considered a sport.
