Male professionals from all industries stop by John Allan's two locations (one in midtown, one in downtown) to get a haircut with all the trimmings. The ambience is old-fashioned clubhouse, all dark wood and leather: there's a pool table in one corner, shoeshine stands in another, rows of comfy loungers and cigar and massage rooms in back. Drinks are served and you're free to lounge around after your treatment.
You don't just get a haircut here: The reasonably-priced "Full Service" package also includes a scalp massage, hot towel face wash, manicure and shoeshine. Beard trims and facial or body massages of various lengths are also available, along with a branded line of products. As you relax in your chair while one staff member cuts you hair and another massages and manicures your hands, you'll feel like quite the king.
My finance recently purchased the "Full Service" package and he couldn't be happier. According to him, "Hands down the best haircut and the most wonderful setting for a man to get a haircut and a shine. The moment you walk in your Jacket and Bag and quietly placed in the coat check. Feel like a drink? How about a beer? Enjoy a cold one as you sit in an amazing leather arm chair while a true expert makes you look like a million. All this and the price is right!
