Just like a salad without lettuce is still a salad, stress is still stressful whether it’s caused by the Christmas crowds at the mall or mirrors that show a style you should have ditched along with last year’s tree. Today’s Groupon provides two very different ways of dealing with everyday-tension: a full-body hot stone massage and a cut and style for R299 at Barber Lounge and Spa.
Though you won’t find a red-and-white striped looks like it belongs to Santa pole outside the door, Barber Lounge and Spa is a throwback to the real old-school barbers and private gentlemen’s clubs that are so few and far between today. A stylish and atmospheric salon in Berea’s fashionable Musgrave Road, it offers the ultimate grooming experience with products and services to help you feel on top of your game. Catering exclusively to men who enjoy looking their best, the stylish salon proves that it’s not just women who’re concerned with stress and trends. With a rugged and masculine charm, relaxing atmosphere and highly trained staff, Barber Lounge and Spa is the kind of place that will leave any man feeling happier than a kid on Christmas morning.
Start off with a relaxing full-body hot stone massage to suffuse rigid and stress-filled muscles with warmth and new flexibility. Combining the heat from smooth river stones strategically placed on key parts of the body with some expert manipulation from masterful fingers, the massage drains away tension and heats the muscles to the most suitable stress-busting temperature. Perfect for relaxing even the most high-strung of muscles, the combination of heat from the basalt stones and the gentle pressure will leave you feeling like a very calm puddle of warm bliss on the therapists table, no matter how tightly you’re wound.
Once you’ve managed to reconstitute from your puddle, let the expert scissor handlers trim away split ends and ensure that you’re looking sharp for this season’s ‘tis the season shenanigans. Though you might not be as strict with the hair on your head as you are with your mutinous muscles, looking neat and tidy never hurt anyone and whether you want the split-ends sliced away or your edges trimmed, the pros at Barber Lounge will make sure your mane is kept well-manicured.
Today’s Groupon also ensures that you can keep your neat appearance well into the season, with R150 towards your next treatment – whether that’s a relaxing facial or mani/pedi to ensure that your talons don’t put holes in the wrapping-paper when you’re preparing your gifts for under the tree.
