An unkempt head is a hazard to one's well-being, resembling a nest in the eyes of pigeons or a place to stow partially licked lollipops in the eyes of confused children. Keep children away from your dome with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a proper gentleman's haircut and razor shave (a $60 value) at the Proper Barbershop on 3rd Street. The Proper Barber Shop strives to bring the classic haircut back, cutting down follicles for a buzz that's as much about the experience as it is about the style. Sink into the antiquated chrome of a Koken Company barber chair for the head sprucing, then get your mug lathered in Blue Beard's Revenge shaving cream for a hot-towel shave. X-Box games, comedy films, or a chilly beer are available while you wait. The Proper Barbershop's décor mixes LA street culture with nostalgia, boldly hanging guitars, skateboards, and punk-rock posters alongside classic iconography such as barber poles, ornate saloon chandeliers, and photos of Marilyn Monroe kissing zoo animals.
