Chicks and, err, haircuts

Via Michael Silence, we learn of Knoxville’s Gentlemen’s Top Cuts. Seems someone thought that it would be a good idea to have a salon with scantily clad women cut men’s hair (duh!). They have a lot of pics there and they have a blog with pics and video.

Hell, I might start going. And it’s not for the scantily clad women. See, read their services. They offer something I’ve not seen done in years: the pre-haircut and post-haircut shampoo! And, you know, the neck massage. But, seriously, I get a cut and get hair all over and am itchy all day because at some point recently, stylists stopped doing the shampoo thing. That is why they’ll succeed. Well, that and the scantily-clad women.

    There’s a chain here in Memphis called Sport Clips. They have TVs with ESPN on so you can watch sports while you’re getting your haircut (which doesn’t work, because there are almost never any actual sports are, and even if there were, the stylists want to chat — it’s in their nature). However, they will do a post-haircut shampoo and style for a couple of bucks extra. They’ll also do the neck massage. But they’re not scantily clad (and, in many cases, that’s a good thing).

    This sounds a lot like our local Roosters, which I LOVE because John FINALLY gets regular haircuts now that he goes there. He called it “the tonsorial equivalent of a lap dance.”

    I only trust old guys with bad breath who talk a lot, sometimes with an accent, to cut my hair.

    I do, however, prefer pretty young girls who smell nice to clean my teeth with their horrible, painful, sharp instruments that make strange sounds. It’s the closest I’ll ever get to those degenerate, San Francisco kind of SM Bondage things people talk about.

    Could this be the next career path for Ashley Dupre?

    There’s been a salon like this in Denver for quite a while now. I’ve never been there, because my tonsorial requirements are quite minimal.

    ok, the sex-sells-everything idea has now officially crossed into plainly ridiculous territory. what next, female plumbers wearing lingerie?

    I’d still rather have the fat, balding, old italian barber to some pretty little thing. Why tempt yourself with something most people can’t have?

    Nomen: You’d rather look at 250-lb male butt cleavage?

    John, i’d rather just get my sink fixed and not get my libido involved in that mix. but what do i know, maybe that makes me a freak.

    Alot of the “salon” type places do the pre-haircut and post-haircut shampoo, Uncle. Salon Visage and the Aveda place at Turkey Creek both do it. They offered me wine too 🙂

    I went to sport clips once in TC; it was not pleasant. I may try out GTC once it opens for shits and giggles.
