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.

The staff at Terrific Massage & Wellness Spa, invites clients of all ages and conditions into the wellness spa for a tailor-made massage or skin treatment. The licensed massage therapists, utilize light to medium pressure during Swedish massage sessions, designed specifically to alleviate stress and encourage relaxation. Clients suffering from specific, localized pain might be better suited for a deep-tissue session, which might last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. Beyond massage, Terrific Massage’s staff administers relaxing mani-pedis and three kinds of facials, each beginning with a skin analysis and ending with a forehead-to-forehead victory bump. Brides-to-be can also stop in for a full makeup application on the big day.
Licensed aestheticians appease rowdy epidermises with custom facials surrounded by the antique and rustic décor of an intimate spa. Customers uncoil during a 50-minute classic European facial, as a visage diviner mixes up a tailor-made cocktail—calibrated to each skin type—that cleanses, exfoliates, and soothes with gentle wisps of steam. Next, a nourishing mask and moisturizer leave faces as smooth as a seal dressed in a silk bathrobe before firm hands massage necks, shoulders, and scalps, purging facial lymph nodes of harmful toxins. Alternatively, customers can opt for a hydrating/age-defying facial, which lasts up to 75 minutes, to restore dry or dull faces to a youthful sheen. Clinicians coat faces, collagen eye pads, and busts of Abraham Lincoln with a hydrating mask, focusing their smoothing acumen on ironing out fine lines and wrinkles.
