Take a break from wrestling bears with today's side deal for manly relaxation. For $32, you get a 60 minute Swedish massage at Knockouts Haircuts for Men Albany (a $75 value) on Wolf Road. A guy-centric salon that's been featured on The Today Show, Knockouts' decor mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—you feel better when you leave. Flat-screen televisions, cold, frothy beverages, and quality service round out the first-rate experience for their Swedish Massage from Lisa, Knockout's licensed massage therapist. With broad strokes and kneading, Lisa delicately pulverizes surface muscle layers to help improve circulation while also easing muscle aches and improving flexibility.
Although there aren't many online reviews, Knockouts was called the "Hooters of haircutting" by Salon:
- Dubbed the "Hooters of haircutting," it features women in short shorts (or dresses) and tennis shoes who cut hair in salons designed to look like boxing rings. Stylists' stations have flat-screen televisions so that men can watch sports while getting their manicures, and in some states, salons even offer free beer. – Catherine Price, Salon
