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 $8, you get The Man Shop Signature Service from The Man Shop (a $16 value). Choose from four area locations:
- 6405 N. Division, Spokane

The Man Shop caters to maned manly men by complementing its services with free arcade games, an Xbox, a pool table, and 19-inch personal flat-screen TVs at every barber station. While clients take control of the remote, a skilled team of female stylists attends to every follicular need. The Man Shop Signature Service ($16) gets customers a clipper cut around the sides, a scissor finish, and a hot foam razor cleanup to deforest any epidermal outliers. Included in the service is a shampoo and condition treatment, complete with a hot towel for the face, closing the deal like a firm but soothing handshake at a baby-stroller dealership.
Named 2010’s Best Barber Shop by the Inlander, The Man Shop restores the fun to haircuts that’s been lost by years of sleepy salons and wayward razors. Chug a soda while you wait, or peruse the shop’s collection of men’s magazines, all while you experience an enveloping masculinity previously known only to John Wayne’s pocket change.
The Man Shop won Best Barbershop in the Inlander 2010 "Best Of" contest. Three Google Mappers give the Division Street location a 3.3-star average, and four Insider Pagers give it a four-star average:
The Man Shop
The Man Shop experience begins long before clients are led to their styling chair. At this throwback men's salon with a twist, a sign on the door warns that it's "rated PG-13" for attitude, and visits begin with a game of pool, darts, or an arcade game. Once men are seated in the styling chair, they're handed a remote to their own personal TV. As they veg out in front of the tube, stylists get to work with clipper cuts, razor fades, and grey blending. The Man Shop also features classic hot-towel shaves complete with foam, moisturizers, and straight razors.
