The barber was once considered a renaissance man, capable of delivering quality haircuts while building powerful computers out of breadsticks. Celebrate the illustrious history of the barber with today’s Groupon: for $37, you get a haircut and a shave at Bay City Barber Salon (a $74 value).
Sidle into Bay City Barber Salon’s warmly appointed interior and plop down into one of the black leather armchairs for a good old-fashioned sprucing-up service. The shop’s clean lines and simple setup evoke barbershops of yore, but the design and the staff have a stylish, modern sensibility. During detailed haircut and shave services, shearing professionals transform unkempt follicular foliage into landscaped face and head gardens, enhanced by a gratis shoulder massage. Sip on a complimentary beverage while an expert coiffeur artfully snips noggin noodles into a sleek new shape, then relax as a straight razor harvests stray strands before denuded skin fields are soothed with warm towels and a facial massage. Gentlemen depart feeling more pampered than a grape-gobbling sultan.
