Eliminate pondering and split ends with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a men’s salon package at 379 Club in Allston (a $142 value). The salon package includes the following:

- A one-hour massage (an $80 value)<p>
Amid a stylish, modern backdrop, the follicle-wrangling stylists at 379 Club clip locks and shape whiskers as part of a portfolio of classic barber services. The personalized cut and style begins with a cleansing rinse, inspiring bubble-bearded Abraham Lincoln imitations. Barbers take each customer’s style preferences into account before precisely slicing away superfluous head fur. Hot shaves deliver follicle-stimulating comfort before a keen razor whisks away figments of stubble; then bodies plop onto plush massage tables for 60 minutes of stress-evicting muscle kneading. Appointments are complemented by a setting of exposed wood beams, stone, and hardwood floors, as well as lad-centric diversions, including flat-screen TVs, a dartboard and billiard table, and an aquarium stocked with up-to-date periodicals.
