A luxurious interior welcomes men to Weldon Barber, which blends a warm, modern aesthetic with rustic accents, such as a fireplace tucked into a stone wall. While waiting for a cut or shave, guests sink into plush leather chairs and sip complimentary coffee, cola, or bottled water while feasting eyes on a flat-screen TV or a selection of men's magazines.
During signature haircuts—the shop’s bread and butter—stylists commence to pamper with a shampoo and a scalp massage before snipping away extraneous strands to craft a custom haircut inspired by a favorite celebrity or janitorial mop. A delicate detailing of brows, ears, and the nose eliminates rogue facial hairs, and a hot face towel and neck shave leave visages smooth. Clients can pair cuts with a timesaver or a signature shave to quickly and comprehensively free jawlines of five o’clock shadows. Throughout the entire andro-aesthetic adventure, stylists lavish clients with Aveda, Jack Black, and American Crew products.

Though a licensed massage practitioner, Kenneth J Zutter doesn’t limit his focus to sore muscles and tight knots. Instead, he assesses the whole person, gleaning insight into the way each client’s lifestyle and stress level affects his or her bodily health and ability to withstand gratuitous saxophone solos.

The seasoned tress trimmers at Onyx Pearl Salon & Spa pamper patrons with warm towels, soothing massages, and sharp snips. After men enter the spa through astral projection or the provided males-only portal, the 40-minute men's exclusive service commences with a hot-towel application and a soothing shoulder and scalp massage, designed to decrease stress and release knots. Straight razors then purge mangy hairs perched on necks, replacing prickles with smooth skin. Hair whisperers unsheathe skilled scissor fingers and snip away extra inches before utilizing L'Oréal products to launder locks, ousting entangled dirt, gum, and daydreams. Finally, stylists comb, blow-dry, and sculpt strands into classic or contemporary fashions.

Cashmere Skin and Body’s experienced aesthetician Megan Jones festoons lids with Reese Robert lash prosthetics during a one-hour beauty session that bestow eyes with added vibrancy and allure. Jones carefully places individual extensions to the lash line so natural bristles aren’t damaged. A fume-free glue firmly fastens the strands, giving sparse hairs a bolder appearance and eyeballs a convenient duster for fogged swimming goggles. The voluminous fixtures stay bound to their lid homes for up to three weeks and can be refortified with touch-up applications (not included with today’s Groupon, $50/session).
