Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Because it’s not a big chain but an independently owned business, Super Express Lube builds its reputation solely on friendly, honest, and skilled service. And it’s a task that owner J.T. takes seriously. He personally trains each of his technicians, sharing his customer-based missive and decade’s-worth of auto experience with the crew so they remain aligned in both practice and philosophy. And this eagerness to please underlines every service offered here. From basic and synthetic oil changes to radiator and fuel-system servicing, the technicians maintain and patch up automotive components with the goal of keeping cars and their drivers from ending up stranded on the shoulder of the road or crying on the shoulder of a tow truck.

The calming pulse of zen music and the flicker of glowing candles ease the body and mind, and visitors can satisfy cravings for toothsome tidbits with access to the salon's snack bar and wireless Internet service.
George and Larysa Gordiany are a husband-and-wife team with more than 30 years of combined experience. Their specialty is color service, particularly Scruple bleach-free highlights, for which they use as many as three colors to create a highly dimensional effect. During precision cuts, the stylists use interlocking shears, which give softer, textured ends, and can be combined in different ways to work with a variety of hair textures. Larysa Gordiany, a specialist in color with over 10 years of experience cutting mens hair in both the United States and Europe, also specializes in updos for weddings, prom, and special occasions.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century.

Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
