I think the trend of the single gender grooming establishment is old fashioned and inefficient
San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) July 14, 2011
San Francisco's The Barber Lounge, known as "the re-invention of the barbershop” is a modern-day barbershop, high-end hair salon and nail salon, and full-service spa catering to both men and women. Situated in a fresh and relaxing loft on Folsom Street, The Barber Lounge is owned and operated by master hair stylist Greg Griffin, who opened the lounge with a vision of a contemporary take on the traditional barbershop experience.
"I wanted to reinvent the classic barbershop,” said Griffin. “The original barbershops were not only places where everyone got their grooming done, but also a place for minor surgeries, dental procedures, and making overall body and health improvements. The barbershop was a place for the community. It allowed people to relax and to discuss politics and happenings in their towns. We don't do dental or medical procedures, obviously, but we do strive to pamper and nurture whole bodies and whole people, rather than just providing our guests with great haircuts. We want to be a place where people enjoy spending time, and leave feeling happier and more comfortable in in their bodies.”
The staff is as diverse as they are talented, with advanced training in the most cutting-edge techniques and the highest quality hair, skin, shaving, and body care products. In spite of their bragging rights, the staff at the Barber Lounge is humble, warm, and attentive, and they deeply value providing each guest with the best in customer service and pampering.
The Barber Lounge may not offer medical services, but they do offer head-to-toe grooming including facials, massages, nail services, waxing, French manicures & pedicures, spray tans, and, of course, hot towel shaves and barber haircuts, in addition to salon services for men and women. It is perfect for both men and women looking for trendy haircuts or color, soothing spa treatments, or a day of full-body pampering.
“I think the trend of the single gender grooming establishment is old fashioned and inefficient," Griffin added.
While receiving their services, guests of The Barber Lounge are able to view the original artwork that adorns the walls of the establishment. The art has been created by some of the Bay Area’s most talented and up-and-coming artists. The Barber Lounge also hosts bi-annual art openings, private events, and fashion shows.
