Though many men enjoy the simplicity of an at-home buzz cut, once they've had their hair conditioned and braided by a professional, they never go back. Treat your manly mane to a day of unprecedented pampering with the help of today's Groupon: for $25, new clients get two executive haircuts at 18|8 Men's Hair and Grooming Centre, a $74 value. Your Groupon is good at the four man-spaloons in the area. Appointments are not necessary, though they are preferred. Call ahead to reserve your spot in a semi-private hair station. With this Groupon, you also get a 20% discount off all hair products on the same day as either of your haircuts. This deal is only valid for services from Centre stylists.

While you'll come to 18|8 for the complimentary beer, wine, or coffee, you'll stay for the hyper-masculine, results-driven hairsperience. An executive haircut includes a five-minute head, neck, and shoulder massage, a thorough shampooing with de-flea powdering, and the titular cut, leaving you somehow both lax and commanding. All services at 18|8 conclude with a hot towel wrapped about your entire face like a startled, warm cat clinging to your head.

After a week in corporate combat, losing precious free time away from the big game or a bar in the name of beauty can sound painful. But shag snipping at the guy-friendly salon 18|8 is something to look forward to, not least because of your desire to dispose of the shaggy hair that keeps you unintentionally camouflaged in the job jungle and that neck fuzz that attracts nest-building birds.


Yelpers give four stars to the 18|8 Men's Hair and Grooming Centre on Alton Parkway in Irvine. Insider Pages users give the Pasadena spot three stars, and four Citysearchers give it four:

  • They work with you to find the cut and style that will work best for you. They are very friendly people, which is important to me - I want to be with a stylist who actually CARES whether I look good or not. – PaulV001, Citysearch
  • I didn't realize how much men can be pampered, and 18/8 really does the trick...The stylists really know what they're doing. I got exactly what I wanted. – Anonymous, Insider Pages
  • Eighteen Eight in Pasadena provides men's haircare in an upscale setting without that uncomfortable "I'm a guy in a salon" feeling. – Nick C., Insider Pages

18|8 Fine Men's Salons

Taking their name from the 18% chromium and 8% nickel that transform regular steel into stainless steel, the staff of 18|8 Fine Men's Salons master grooming services to transform their clients into chiseled gentlemen. A greeter waits at the salon entrance with a complimentary beverage for each client and guides him to his stylist's booth or to a private or semiprivate treatment area for facials, massage, and other grooming sessions. Stylists carefully cut and color the hair of their clients, finishing Executive cuts and styles with five-minute shoulder massages and Bay Rum hot towels.

Technicians groom hands with MANicures and faces with straight-edge blade shaves and hot lather eos moisturizing shave cream. Guests can relax during 20-minute therapeutic massages to finish their visit and ease any tension built up in hands and forearms by excessive whittling.
