Like Samson's, 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 $25, you get The Benchmark hair service at The Boardroom Salon for Men's location in The Woodlands (a $55 value).
The stylists at The Boardroom Salon spruce up men's manes and more via comprehensive packages such as The Benchmark. After a personal consultation outlines the client's specific cranial needs, a stylist trims tresses into a tailored coif. Then the beauty patient receives a softening paraffin dip followed by an energizing shampoo and conditioning. Next comes the moisturizing facial and steamed towel. While relaxing with the steamed towel the customers receives a stress relieving hand massage. Once mug surfaces are cleaned and hydrated the scalp submits to a cleansing rinse. A finishing-touch styling ensures that the fresh ‘do departs as put-together as a finished puzzle depicting a lawyer and his nuclear family.
The Boardroom's salons, each decked out in dark wood paneling, combine the experiential nostalgia of an old-timey barbershop with the elegance of a 1920s country club. Before or after treatments, clients can sip on complimentary beverages and compete in billiards, chess, and "who can floss their cleft chin faster" competitions.
