What You'll Get
Today’s Groupon is full of shag-snipping and mane-maintaining. For $29, you’ll get two quick, quality cuts, plus one free game of pool and one aesthetic extra (tanning session or eyebrow wax) per appointment at Too Hotties, a guy-centric salon in Addison. Add panache to your preening, or get your mop cut without cutting into time that could be spent climbing flagpoles.
Too Hotties is plugged into a guy’s needs. Before your appointment, you can guzzle root beer, nosh on PB&J sandwiches, play video games, watch sports on plasma screens, enjoy a game of pool (included in the price of your Groupon, $1), or talk about riding wild animals through busy cities. Your pampering package not only includes an extensive cut (shampoo, styling, deep scalp massage, regularly $24, plus hot steam face towel, regularly $5 extra), but also your choice of one indulgent extra. You have the option of either de-fuzzing your face with an eyebrow wax ($10), or adding a little color with a 10-minute session in a stand-up tanning booth ($10). The best part is, when your hair grows out, which it likely will, you get to come back and repeat the entire process.
After your eyes (which are difficult to alter), your hair is one of the first things women check out after your smile, knees, elbow crooks, and ear-behinds. Even if you aren’t influenced by the opinions of others, guys have limited ways of changing their aesthetic presence. Haircuts are an easy way to spruce things up in the absence of heels, brooches, bangles, earrings, and grillz.
Exotic Games of Pool
Today’s Groupon gets you a free game of pool to go with your haircut. If you’re bored of regular games of pool, try one of these advanced pool varieties for true pool sharks:
Texas Five Ball: The first player to knock five balls into any pocket is called “the juggler,” while the losing player is sacrificed to an ancient snake deity.
The Crook and Bale: Both players idly hit balls with sticks and talk about football until one of them brings up what’s really on their minds: the night last August that can’t be washed away.
Island Shuffle: This is Cliff’s moment to shine because Cliff loves this game. Too bad nobody likes Cliff enough to play. Sorry, Cliff.
Oddball Out: This deadly game requires players to bring their own archery set and is rarely worth the bloodshed. Can be played in teams.
