What You'll Get
PLEASE NOTE: The price of today's Groupon is $50 (Half-off of $100) - NOT $25 as stated in the email. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
Studies show that men avoid professional stylists because most salons threaten their masculinity. Scented candles, new age music, irresistible pedicures, the customary post-shave feather tickling - scientists have found that each is full of cooties.
379 Club is a luxury barber-spa where men can get properly groomed without being immasculated. 379 is offering a haircut, massage and either a shave or a hand and foot detail for just $50. That's more than 50% off the normal price of $105 for those 4 services. Get it for yourself or as a suggestive gift for your unkempt boyfriend or son - the one who keeps having you cut his hair (even though you can only do bowl cuts).
Located at 379 Cambridge St. in Allston, 379 is a casual hangout where men can relax. Daily Candy and Yelpers give 379 Club its propers for creating the most man-friendly atmosphere outside of fictional beer commercial settings. Here's a satisfied Yelper:
"Leather couches, expos ed brick walls, plush pool table, plasmas with the C's game on...looking good so far. No kids running around, no US Weekly magazines, just a real chill atmosphere without the bougie vibe of the male salons on Newbury. It actually feels a lot like the old barbershops I'm used to with friendly, laid-back staff and random dudes going in and out of the place." - Johnny K.
379 is the kind of place that attracts regular customers. Clients keep coming back for the variety of hair styles, from the dignified to the creative. Try the Clark Gable or Humphrey Bogart for a classic look, or take advantage of 379's artistic prowess. Remember those lines you wanted shaved in your head in 5th grade after you saw House Party? Now you're an adult and you can get the Kid 'N Play treatment, or sculpt lots of other creative designs into your dew. More inventive styling options include mazes, sports insignias, and recreations of impressionist masterpieces.
By the way, you haven't really lived until you've experienced a hot, close shave. There was a time before salons when everyone went to barbers, and all men had the right to close shaves. No triple razor technology can match the craft of a true barber. A close shave not only makes a face smoother than other razors, but also smoothes over unwanted scabs, warts, and wipes out facial food stains completely. After your first close shave, you may want to try to close shave your cat so it can experience the same pleasure. You can also exchange the hot shave for a hand and foot detail. Not just for aspiring hand models, the detail is also for men who hope to impress with a handshake or an elegant fist punch. Don't let unsightly hoof nails limit how much you can impress women when you flash your many golden rings.
The massage is a necessary component to finalizing your transformation. One cannot impress merely with a fresh shave, one needs to confidently stand upright, with the posture of a giraffe. 379's neck-lengthening massages will give you the added height that women love. So get your Groupon.
