Shaggy hair can box guys into a corner in the job market, and scruffy beards can sand the face off a significant other. Today's Groupon saves another's face-skin and makes males look job-ready: for $39, you get an ultimate-series haircut and shave at Elliott & Co. (an $80 value).
The skilled stylists at Elliot & Co. transform masculine visages from tarnished and unruly to groomed and polished. During the ultimate-series signature cut, head helmets are shampooed, conditioned, and stylishly snipped, then treated to a straight-razor neck and hairline cleanup to ensure a neat face frame. Next, the ultimate shave curbs snide remarks from jealous stubble, beginning with a hot-towel prep and preshave oil designed to open pores and soften skin. With the grace of a pirouetting swan, a steady-handed descruffer double shaves your face in both directions with a straight razor for maximum closeness. A refining mask and cold towel follow, topped off with an after-shave balm, leaving skin fresher than a new peppermint penny. In addition to heads acquiring well-landscaped follicles, shoulders receive a soothing kneading from a mechanic massager to cap off the rejuvenating experience.
Twenty-six Yelpers give Elliot & Co. a near-perfect 4.5 stars:
