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 (a $25 value) and a razor shave (a $25 value) at the Proper Barbershop (a $50 total value).
The Proper Barbershop strives to bring back the classic haircut, cutting down follicles for a buzz that's as much about the experience as the style. Mangy men can sink into the antiquated chrome of a barber chair for the tasteful head sprucing before expert stubble cutters lather their mugs in shaving cream for a hot-towel shave and a chance to see what they would look like as Santa Claus. Xbox 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.
