Before the invention of scissors, hair could only be shortened via naturally occurring escalator snags and inevitable bonfire curiosity. Snip strands the newfangled way with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a Heavyweight haircut at Knockouts Haircuts for Men (a $25 value). This Groupon is good only at the full-service salon's Wolf Road location.
Stylists battle hair snafus within the boxing-ring décor of Knockouts Haircuts for Men, a guy-centric salon once featured on the Today show. Heads scheduled for the Heavyweight treatment discuss styling preferences with a personal hair trainer, who then bookends a customized cut with two invigorating shampoos. An invigorating rinse flushes away cleanser remnants, leaving locks ready to receive stylists’ breathable summer ’dos. Guests chase away lingering stressors with a hot face-towel and scalp massage before a neck trim and complimentary name tag identifies them as "Movie Actor Harrison Ford" and sends these newly shorn fellows swaggering out of the shop. Knockouts cradles guests with creature comforts, reducing precut waits to restive idylls with flat-screen televisions and frothy tipples.
