What You'll Get
Like Samson, a man's physical strength is directly proportional to the length of his hair, which is why The Beatles spent most of the 1960s crushing classical marble busts with their bare hands. Trade some strength for a new look with today's Groupon: for $28, you get an Old South Signature haircut and stimulating scalp massage (up to a $58 value) at Old South Barber Spa on State Street.
Belying its moniker, Old South Barber Spa is a modern facility where the bountiful charm and amenities of an old-world Southern men’s club are ladled into a historic home’s luxurious confines. Transform tussled ‘dos into prim noodle nests with the Old South Signature haircut (up to $36), which first employs a consultation with the steady-handed skills of professional barbers to craft each coiffure so it complements the individual cranium at hand. Each cut begins with an invigorating shampoo, hot-lather neck shave, style, and complimentary beverage. An additional stimulating scalp massage (up to $22) exposes patrons to new levels of relaxation with 15 minutes of neck and scalp pampering for body-toppers overworked from pondering life’s mysteries, such as why so many pigeons want to talk about westward expansion. Complimentary beverages, as well as cigars available for purchase, are also offered to patrons.
Old South Barber Spa is located in a historic three-story home dating from 1794, with 3,000 square feet of space and private grooming areas. The pleasantly placid atmosphere surrounds visitors in a comforting blanket of rich mahogany, lavish furnishings, and original antique heart pine floors that evoke the drawing rooms of historic gentlemen’s clubs, outfitted with enough blazing hearths and writing desks to sate the appetite of an entire Sherlock Holmes blog collective. Surround yourself in posh décor before strutting out with a striking new type of scalp growth thanks to today’s Groupon to Old South Barber Spa.
