With cell-phone cameras, gossip networks, and reality shows springing up like push-pops, no man can afford to not look his darndest, or at the very least, his durndest. Today's Groupon gets you or an unkempt loved one a signature haircut and a presidential shave from Craig the Barber at Gornik and Drucker's for $65 (a $150 value).
Now that there are no more unexplored continents to exploit for profit, a shave and a haircut is the quickest way for a man to reinvent himself, and Craig the Barber's experienced scissor hands have reinvented luminaries such as Jermaine Dupri, the Crown Prince of Dubai, and many others. Craig recently joined the staff at Gornik and Drucker's in the Forbe's Five-Star-awarded Montage Beverly Hills hotel, which kept Ronald Reagan's locks looking free-market sharp in the '80s.
Your roughly 90-minute presidential treatment begins with an attentive haircut, followed by the presidential shave, which blends steamed hot towels, lathery soap, and a straight-edge razor into a luxurious shave worthy of a 20th-century movie star playing a 19th-century railroad tycoon. Afterward, Craig will salve your skin by massaging his custom-blended butter moisturizer into it. After a cold towel and a spritz of antiseptic, you'll be free to head outside and be mistaken for a presidential candidate by the paparazzi lurking in the bushes. Mess with their heads by stopping to sign a series of ambitious campaign finance reforms into law.
AskMen.com calls Gornik and Drucker's the Number One Barbershop in the nation:
- For more than seven decades celebrities have come in -- even while on the job, as a scene from the Rat Pack’s Ocean’s Eleven was shot here... A visit today will assuredly be more subdued, but the atmosphere and attention to detail remain. – [Terry Baldwin]
- Gornik & Drucker's at Montage Beverly Hills, a magical place where you can catch two and a half hours of sleep…even if you don't doze off.
