Inspired by the legacy of their grandfathers—stylish gents by the names of Lewis "Emerson" Smith and Gabor "Joseph" Takats—Shelly Hutchins and Stacy Donnelly wanted to create a place where men could relax and enjoy some masculine pastimes. Their salon, Emerson Joseph, offers exactly that. In addition to male-focused hair and spa services, the space boasts a pool table and flat-screen TVs announcing the latest in sports. During appointments, the stylists treat faces to hot-towel wraps, trim cuticles and hangnails, and serve complimentary beverages. They even polish off haircuts with a quick shoeshine, a true gentleman's service that's almost as classic as the spit-shine facial.
City Barbers' friendly staff at Uptown and Highland Creek specializes in the shearing, shaving, and four-part harmony expected of an authentic, old-time haircuttery, while using technology and sports to lure the most modern of men. Each workstation is equipped with its own flat-screen TV and comfortable black-leather chair, making it easy for clients to imagine what it'd be like getting a professional-quality haircut at home. The haircut will be performed by a skilled pair of scissors wielded by a skilled hand, then topped off with a complimentary straight-razor neck shave that will leave your skin feeling as smooth as a well-oiled fire truck.
Led by Vincenzo, a 26-year-veteran of the styling business, Metro Hair Studio's trained staffers corral nails into fashionable appendage accessories during spa mani-pedi treatments. Decadigits lounge in a tonic salt soak before submitting to the classic file, buff, and de-finger-puppeting that readies nails for pigmented makeovers. Technicians then coat phalangeal appendages in an exfoliating sugar scrub, with the granular crystals buffing away skin's rough outer layers. Hands and feet relax under the warm strokes of heat mask and massage, extracting stresses to fashion calm demeanors and a deficit in the amateur poetry market. The tensome treatment concludes with a polishing in the color of choice, with patrons immediately debuting their sandal-strutting makeover.

With padded lime-green chairs lounging on a pillared porch that runs the length of a two-story, century-old wooden house in Dilworth, Folicle could easily be mistaken for a bed and breakfast at first glance. Though they can’t stay the night, guests are encouraged to stop and rest awhile as stylists and aestheticians snip, shade, and smooth their hair, shape their nails, or unknot their muscles amid floor-to-ceiling mirrors that reflect honey wood floors.
