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 $29, you get a men’s haircut, shampoo massage, and straight-razor shave at Y-Chrome (a $60 value).
Y-Chrome melds the warm hospitality and gentleman-pampering services of an old-school barbershop with modern amenities, serving as a cutting-edge mecca of mop-top maintenance. Each haircut ($21) offers a quality hair snipping and adds an extra ounce of jauntiness to a winter driving scarf as customers turn down Great Hair Boulevard en route to the less fashionable and always serious I-405.
An additional shampoo massage ($4) employs suds to lustrate locks while perspicacious fingertips carefully caress the cranium. After a cut in front of one of Y-Chrome's sports-broadcasting televisions, jealous cheeks will go from gruff to smoochable with a straight-razor shave ($35) administered with professional diligence.
The expert head shapers at Y-Chrome treat tresses with care before or after visitors saddle up to one of the shop's pool tables or dart boards with a crisply purchased microbrew (not included). While fedoras are a fickle trend, customers who leave sporting a handsome head of hair can rest assured that they’ll never lose style points, just as men will never lose their hair.
