Talk about a win-win: Guys can get their hair coiffed, game face groomed, nails tuned up and shoes shined while grooving to Miles Davis, watching Monday Night Football or sipping a complimentary glass of Guinness at Shave, Beverly Hills' hip new high-end men's barbershop.
In addition to offering haircuts, backrubs and other grooming services like "Uni-brow Surgery," "Sweater Removal" and a "Fingernail Clip 'n Clean," the establishment also earns high-fives from the crowd for its signature "Shave of Beverly Hills." Guys who book the top-seller get to settle into a comfy, vintage-leather barber chair while a grooming specialist analyzes their skin, performs a hot, seven-towel process, uses a straight razor to shave with the grain and applies soothing after-shave products. Man, oh man, what a way to keep up appearances.
TVs, brushed stainless steel elements, turn-of-the-century barber chairs and vintage product displays.
