Men, these aren't your fathers' barbershops. Get groomed without - or with, if you prefer - all the fuss in a joint where testosterone rules and golf tips dominate the conversation. From haircuts to professional shaves to back waxing, here's where Denver dudes go to get pampered.
Proper: This Highlands neighborhood barbershop keeps it simple with three items on the menu: haircut, shave or combo. But don't let its old-school approach fool you -- despite getting to "enjoy an ice cold beer, read a vintage Playboy, and talk some shit," the services are fresh and modern. 3923 Tennyson St.; 303-862-7537
Gentlemen's Quarters: You won't be smelling perm solution at this men-only establishment. However, you will have plenty of perks at your fingertips - the shave here uses desert clay, matching facials in pampering potential. Reflexology, hair removal, back and nail treatments are also available. 1605 17th St.; 303-991-1010
Prority Male: Located in the Tech Center's Belleview Promenade, Priority Male blends the barbershop of yesteryear with styling savvy of today. Keep polished between appointments with a full line of men's grooming products for sale onsite. 8000 E. Belleview Ave., #D20; 303-224-9933
Roosters: Get cocky with a cut at this men's grooming center. Try a signature shave - hot steam towels and massage included - neck trims, camouflage for those pesky grays, and highlights for the creative bunch. Bring in your young 'un for a father-son combo. 5910 S. University Blvd.; 303-797-4868 (multiple locations)
Studio Urban Wax: Body hair may scream masculine, but sometimes it's not just backhair that needs grooming. Men's waxing is available from head to toe at Studio Urban Wax, as well as skin care including microdermabrasion, micro peels and facial treatments. Side note: There's a strict "no tipping" policy. 40 S. Broadway; 303-325-3479
