A new breed of salons for grooming-conscious men are cropping up in more places than you’d think. Don’t think you’ll find flower shaped emory boards or pastel-colored walls. Instead, these salons feature wood floors, black leather couches and pool tables.

Men looking for a decent haircut and shave have generally had two options: Head to the local barber or brave a female-focused beauty salon. Now, some new shops for men aim to offer salon pampering in a guy-centric environment — complete with ESPN and scotch.
These manly salons also allow men to indulge in treatments once taboo, such as manicures and facials — but all with a distinctly male tenor. Instead of pastel-colored walls, there are wood floors, black leather couches and pool tables. Some also offer private areas for more blush-inducing services, such as hair coloring and body waxing.
