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 $11, you get a Shear Dude haircut at Bolt Barbers (a $22 value), located in downtown Los Angeles. For $6 extra, you can upgrade to the Bald by Choice or Hippy Hair services.
Bolt Barbers' mastermind, "Mohawk Matt" Berman, and his passionate, professional cutting crew of crew-cutters welcome fellas of all coifs into a contemporary yet old-school dudemosphere where—for a few sweet moments—they can stop sucking in their guts, noses, and earlobes. Bolt is too laid-back to accept reservations, so just drop in, plop down in a comfy chair, and be yourself while hanging out with fellow unkempt dudes in need of a good kemping. When your turn comes, Bolt's barbers will treat your frazzled follicles to the signature Shear Dude service, which aims to improve each cranium's character by drastically reducing its thread count. As you talk sports, sporks, Spocks, and other Y-chromosome-tickling topics, Bolt's careful craftsmen will machete a trail through your rugged head terrain and climb the summit of any widow's peaks with a meticulous flair—leaving all domesticated Vikings feeling confident, clear-headed, and free of excess facial frondescence.
Warm yellow walls decked with nifty artwork surround Bolt's modern, relaxed man-palace and inspire its Everyman's Social Club to discuss such common men koans as "Is there a manly way to frolic?" and "What is the sound of one hand clapping if that hand belongs to Chuck Norris?" And Thursday through Saturday, office escapees and weekend warriors can stroll in for a late-night snip and some laughs until the doors close at midnight. Bolt Barbers' welcoming communal vibes ensure comfort for all beauty-seeking beasts, be they pompadoured, flaxen haired, or flaxseed deficient, so gift a few Groupons to any friends in danger of losing their fluency in guy talk.
This deal is valid for new clients only.
