What You'll Get
Like Samson, a man's physical strength is directly proportional to the length of his hair, which is why The Beatles spent most of the 1960s crushing classical marble busts with their bare hands. Trade some strength for a new look with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a men's deluxe haircut (a $23 value) at Barbershop Deluxe in the South End.
Established in 1997, Barbershop Deluxe pays homage to classic barbershops with a neighborhood setting reminiscent of the 1930s. The shop operates under co-owners Christina Morelli and Jon Haskell who, along with their traditionally trained crew, consistently churn out modern and stylish haircuts in a laid-back environment. When redeeming today’s Groupon, the male molding experts invite guests to engage in friendly chatter about local happenings, news, weather, sporting events, and, of course, any and all particular follicular requests. Barbershop Deluxe maintains generous opening and closing hours throughout the week, with vacant chairs available Tuesday–Saturday, allowing visitors to stop in for a quick clip after work or in lieu of Saturday morning cartoons.
Yelpers give Barbershop Deluxe a near-perfect 4.5-star average:
- It's an elegantly-designed shop with a very friendly, community-feeling atmosphere. Plus, they do the old-fashioned hot shaving cream straight-razor neck shave... (I don't know why this is so hard to find in Boston.) What a great place! – Jamie E.
- Great place. I called ahead to book an appointment for Friday afternoon and when I got there, Luis, was ready to start. He did a really good job and did exactly what I asked. – David T.
