Scissors & Scotch really knows how to treat a guy
When Jason King needs some “he” time away from the everyday grind, he heads to Scissors & Scotch.
“It’s the only time I get to be alone—I’m always at work or with the kids,” says King, “so I get the ‘Twenty-five Year’ every two weeks.”
One of Scissors & Scotch’s top-shelf treatments—all of which are served with a complimentary drink, of course—the Twenty-five Year comes with the works, including a steamed towel treatment, hot-lather back-of-neck-shave, scalp massage, face refresher, paraffin hand dip and a neck, shoulder and hand massage.
“When I get home my hands are softer than my wife’s,” jokes King.
But that’s not all that brings King and a lot of guys through the doors every chance they get.
“Look good, feel good” is the philosophy at Scissors & Scotch. “I love seeing guys walk out of here feeling six inches taller,” says Director of Opportunity Maryanne Bergeman. “I think a lot of guys feel like they’ve reached a status they didn’t know existed.”
Delivered by stylists and barbers who are professionally certified and carefully trained in the Scissors & Scotch “way,” styling and spa services range from haircuts and barbering (i.e., professional face-shaving) to waxing, hand repair, full body massage and shoe-shining.
They may be famous for their Old-Fashioned, but the bar at Scissors & Scotch is deep and wide. With each service, members receive the complimentary drink of their choosing and 20% off at the bar.
And there’s always something going on, whether it’s two-for-one Happy Hour from 5-7 p.m. weekdays or distillery and wine tasting events.
“I like the set-up,” says King. “You can kick back and enjoy some quiet time or hang out with the guys at the bar.”
From bachelor parties to charity drives, there’s practically no end to the social opportunities at Scissors & Scotch.
There’s live music every Friday afternoon, special events with luxury brands like Ferrari and Bentley, and annual charity events where every guest gets a free shave.
“You get hooked,” said one especially relaxed gentleman watching a basketball game on the bar’s large-screen TV. “It would be hard to go somewhere for just a plain old haircut. This place has spoiled me.”
