What You'll Get
Even men who are experts at mowing the lawn often can't wield whirring blades deftly enough to nicely trim their own hair and avoid dissecting head-top bunnies. Hire a professional hair-maintenancer with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two Executive haircuts with a center stylist—plus 20% off any haircare products purchased during the visit—at 18|8 Men's Haircare and Grooming Center, valid only at the Costa Mesa location (up to a $74 value).
At 18|8, talented stylists and aestheticians upgrade executive heads with sleek looks crafted to current male style standards. After a brisk tête-à-tête with the salon coordinator, dignified dudes sip complimentary beer, coffee, or pomade as they await the stylish reshaping of their hairscape. Next, gents are guided to a semiprivate booth, where they answer questions about their lifestyle, preferred hair products, desired cut, and favorite oatmeal accompaniment. The Executive haircut, which includes a 5-minute neck-and-shoulder massage, a thorough shampooing and conditioning, and a hot-towel wrap, leaves once-weary boardroom pompadours looking simultaneously relaxed and commanding. At the end of each visit, a stylist reviews proper mane-maintenance practices with clients, giving personalized product suggestions designed to keep follicles healthy and hair as flawless as a plan to fit a child's sweater onto a slumbering hippo.
Though 18|8 Men's Haircare and Grooming Center sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About 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.
