What You'll Get
Your facial hair and head hair are thirsty for attention and previews of James Cameron's Avatar. Today’s Groupon will keep your head kempt with a $20 cut and shave at Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, a $45 value. Gussy up for December 18, 2009 at the barbershop CityBeat readers voted Best Barber Shop in San Diego.
Like an ivy garden or a maze full of edges, the male head is a mess of tufts and waves that requires taming with scissors and razors. Today’s deal combines a Floyd's 99 haircut with a face shave to remind the world that you are not a mass of sprouts, curls, and raspberry jam: you are the master of your countenance. A Floyd's cut gives you a short cut of your choice (think fade or fauxhawk) and a face shave comes with hot towels, oil, a face massage, and a close shave. The experience is finished with a neck massage and straight-razor neck shave.
The O’Brien brothers opened a barbershop that melded old school and new school. With hours from 9 a.m.–9 p.m. on weekdays and weekend hours, you can launch your dominance over your hair on your own schedule. Look your best when you meet your cousin's kitten this holiday season, or help your boyfriend spruce up his image for your parents.
Be sure to make your appointment in advance.

Jonas Salk on June 5, 1963: In the years after discovering the first effective polio vaccine, Jonas Salk spent most of his time cooking gourmet meals for his cat, inventing the first MP3 player, and growing his hair out in an attempt to become more popular with women 35 and under. After a string of two unfortunate personal setbacks—his cat dying from being loved too hard and a couple awkward dates with younger women—Salk decided it was time for a drastic change. On the morning of June 5, 1963, Salk sheared off the majority of his locks with a number two attachment. Later, he went on to become the first non-Russian to fly a car and was the basis for the NBA logo.
