HALO [FOR MEN] is no ordinary salon. There are no female clients, which means no girly magazines (expect Guns & Ammo, Maxim, and the Wall Street Journal), no girly smells (HALO [FOR MEN] smells exactly like Michael Jordan after Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals), and no girly discussions (if you must converse, you are limited to talking about classic episodes of Columbo). Plus, there’s always a movie, CNN, or ESPN playing on HALO’s high-definition TVs, providing a mega-dose of man-friendly entertainment.
When entering the man-salon, the friendly staff greets you, helps you check in, and puts you at ease with a complimentary beverage. When it’s time for the 50-minute massage simply titled THE RUBB, choose between three tension-terminating options:
- Sports massage
- Swedish massage
- Neck, back & shoulders only
This deal is the perfect way to get away from the stresses of family and work by rewarding yourself with relaxation. THE RUBB makes a great gift for the men in your life, including husbands, bosses, colleagues, friends, relatives, or primary care physicians. And if you feel like a complete pampering experience, check out the other services: HALO [FOR MEN] offers haircuts, hot-lather shaves, manicures, complicated dental surgeries, and more.
Many Chicago pubs, including Time Out Chicago, Chicago Magazine, Chicago Sun-Times, and the Chicago Tribune, have featured HALO [FOR MEN]:
Yelpers give it a near-perfect 4.5 stars: > * Can I get massages for a living?!?!? I could be rubbed all day and be a happy man. I know that Halo does it all, haircut, mani’s, shave, wax, and even a good back scratch (how cool is that!!). I have only experienced the massage and it was perfect, she worked out all of my knots and then some. – Nick M > * The service is friendly, warm, and fun…and the place even occasionally holds cocktail parties for its customers. My colleagues chuckle at how “metrosexual” I became, but I like getting pampered a bit. I could never go back to the basic salon or barber shop after being at Halo. – Alex M. > * The waiting room is really cool, theater seats with a big screen. A History Channel show about Pablo Escobar was on.. then we switched it over to some NFL football… perfect for a men’s salon. – Tom G.
