The barber was once considered a renaissance man, capable of delivering quality haircuts and shaves while building powerful computers out of breadsticks. For $30, today's Groupon sticks to the barber basics with a haircut ($34) and shave ($34) at Bay City Barber Salon, a comfortable cuttery located in the Financial District (a $68 total value). Bay City Barber Salon offers high-quality services from seasoned barbers trained in traditional barbering skills and ancient barbershop languages. Collectively, the staff has more than 60 years of industry experience. Let that experience funnel into your hair and face for a trip down Pampering Street.
Tucked into the beating heart of the Financial District like a tiny pacemaker, Bay City is in a perfect location for a lunchtime shave and shearing. Sidle into the warmly appointed interior over sleek wood floors, and plop down into one of the black leather armchairs. The clean lines and simple setup evoke old-timey barbershops of old times, but the design has a modern sensibility. Haircuts and shaves coupled with a complimentary beverage can provide a relaxing cleaning up for any professional businessperson or minor-league baseball coach. Shaves are completed with straight razors, hot towels, and a facial massage, sure to make any passing gentleman feel more pampered than a grape-gobbling sultan. The haircut will be performed by a skilled scissor-wielder and styled to your liking.
While Bay City's site doesn't shy away from barbering's bloody back-story, customers needn't worry about having teeth pulled or minor surgical procedures performed. Bay City Barber Salon is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call ahead to book your appointment.
