Though beards were once the mark of sophistication, powerful men have eschewed them in favor of smooth chins and facial tattoos of their highest SAT score. Keep faces clean of poorly considered displays with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a signature shave (a $50 value) at Barber's Blueprint.
The personable and professional coiffeurs of Barber’s Blueprint treat Dapper Dans and Bewhiskered Bertrams to old-timey signature shaves. With exposed brick, ebony-and-ivory crystal chandeliers, high ceilings, and cameos from mustache-twiddling bandits, Barber’s Blueprint preens follicular forests in a fanciful setting. Lie back and let the experienced barbers deliver a 45-minute old-fashioned signature shave, complete with straight razors, hot towels, and a facial massage. The mini-facial finale soothes mugs with a peel-off mask, removing bristly face turf and providing an easy crime-fighting alter ego.
