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 $30, you get an old-fashioned blade shave and stimulating scalp massage at Old South Barber Spa on State Street (a $62 value).
Belying its moniker, Old South Barber Spa is a modern facility that ladles the bountiful charm and amenities of an old-fashioned Southern men’s club into a historic home’s luxurious confines. Even out lopsided muttonchops and tame neckbeards with the soothing strokes of a blade shave (a $40 value). A barber first lathers the neck and jowls with the finest shaving oils, then performs a double close shave with a straight-edge razor before finishing with a soothing after-shave mask to rejuvenate and purify the skin. Next, a stimulating 15-minute scalp massage relaxes the body while coaxing out forgotten safety-deposit-box codes (a $22 value). Sip a complimentary beverage as you unwind, or purchase a cigar to thank your specialist with a smoke-ring message.
Old South Barber Spa’s three stories of space and private grooming areas surround visitors in a comforting blanket of rich mahogany, lavish furnishings, and original antique heart-pine floors, evoking the historic grandeur of Sherlock Holmes’s tree-house. Surround yourself in posh décor before strutting out with a strikingly smooth mug.
