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 to The Men's Locker Room, with locations in downtown Kansas City and in Lee's Summit. Choose between two options:
- For $30, you get a 60-minute Swedish or sports massage (a $60 value).
- For $10, you get a First Down men's haircut (a $20 value).
Voted Kansas City's Best Barber in 2008 and 2009 by CityVoter, The Men's Locker Room provides guy-focused haircare and spa services in a comfortable, masculine atmosphere. Heads opting for the First Down haircut are first ensconced in the classic, black-leather barber chairs, reposing in regal fashion while the professional barbers shape and style hair into conservative buzzes or grandiose pompadours, perfect for taking the wind out of an Elvis-impersonating cousin's sails at an upcoming family reunion. Lip-adorning mustaches are trimmed and groomed as well, eliminating loose hairs and long-forgotten pie crumbs from a handlebar's shag. Cuts finish up in old-school style with a brush of powder around the neck, a choice of oil sheen or styling gel, and a splash of Clubman Special Reserve aftershave cologne.
A 60-minute massage purges stress and achiness from the body, reducing tenseness to a garbage-disposal-safe subaqueous blob at the hands of a skilled massage therapist. Male or female guests can avail themselves of one of two massages: a Swedish massage affords general relaxation using long, smooth kneading strokes and lotions or oil, and a sports massage targets the physically active by stretching away training-induced aches and freeing up muscles for parkour-assisted escapes from dogged process servers.
Hairs are cut and muscles loosened in a traditional, welcoming barbershop environment complete with sports-broadcasting TVs, a pool table, and dartboards. Every customer gets a complimentary drink and snack with their cut or massage and are invited to stick around, lounging on leather chairs or challenging other patrons to games of skill while recounting testosterone-fueled tales of big-game hunting and Candy Land victory.
CityVoters named The Men's Locker Room Kansas City's Best Barber in 2008 and 2009.
