This NY-style manstitution harkens back to the barbershop heyday of the '40s, with intricate gold-trimmed walls, classy chandeliers, and a team of friendly hair whisperers that's armed and legged to whip follicles into shape. A tenure spent nestled in the shop's plush fur-fighting chairs can take two forms. Stylishly eradicate facial fuzz with a luxurious hot-lather shave, employing heated shaving cream and a pristine straight-blade to render a clean-cut appearance matched only by Library of Congress cadets and Ken dolls. Or, opt for the all-encompassing haircut service, having your strands styled to your liking as well as lovingly shampooed and conditioned. A shirt-flattering neck-shave is also included, preventing shady back-neck tendril trades.
Extension King](http://gr.pn/AbKsEo)'s staff enhances hairdos with an in-house supply of hair extensions and wigs complemented by a lineup of salon services that beautify their clients' permanent strands. Strand-by-strand extensions fasten to each hair shaft and create a natural look, and tape-in and clip-in extensions grant customers reusable head adornments to wear during extra trips through a grocery's free-sample line. Cuts, highlights, and specialty treatments such as Brazilian Blowouts beautify heads' naturally grown foliage. Additionally, the staff transforms appendages with Shellac mani-pedis that coat nails in vibrant polish that lasts up to 14 days.
There's no such thing as a regular haircut at Sloane Square Barbers & Shoppe. The barbers at this men-only shop add extra touches to every service, and even their most basic option is called a "luxury haircut." It lives up to the name. During the service, barbers hand clients complementary beverages, sit them down in front of a flat screen TV, and then start clipping. They not only snip precise looks, but also massage shoulders and shave the back of necks with a straight razor, just like cowboys used to do before their cowboy proms. Visitors can also opt to groom their nails or refresh skin with mini-facials.
Perfect Bronze's licensed aestheticians are adept at overriding ghostly complexions, lackluster lashes, and Bert-like monobrows. The salon's signature sunless tan ($50) remedies pallid pigmentation from top to toe with an odorless spray that dries in about five minutes. Made with sugar-based ingredients, the airbrush-applied spray lasts 7–10 days. A bevy of waxing treatments, such as underarms ($20), half-legs ($25), and bikini lines ($20), allow hirsute customers to return to a childlike state of hairlessness and innocence, recalling languid summer days spent sliding friction-free down gutters; whereas body bleaching wraps unwanted body hairs in individual invisibility cloaks (starting at $15).
