The seasoned sculptors of masculine manes at Roosters fuse modern grooming techniques with time-tested treatments, regaling male clients with a premium yet classic barbershop experience. One of these scissor wielders kicks off the Roosters Club Cut with a head-massaging shampoo before cutting, drying, and styling follicular forests into dapper coiffures sure to impress a date or a date's hard-to-impress poodle. Each cut is finely tuned to maximize the cranial canvas's aesthetic potential without dispatching hoards of invading hair clippings into the collar. A brush of powder and a splash of aftershave conclude pelt parings before the Signature Seven-Step Facial Shave commences with the soothing touch of hot-steam towels and a pore-purging deep-cleansing facial massage. After a slathering of moisturizing lotions, razors slough away stubble with a shave so close that newly smoothened chins may lose themselves in fond childhood memories of ice-cream dribbles and adorable Abe Vigoda impressions.
