There are seldom few places in this modern world where men can go and be men. Oh, I know what you’re thinking; “Boo Hoo for men! They need to wash themselves and wear clothing that’s only partially ripped as they collect big pay days!” But really, the modern emasculation of men I think takes root in the counter culture of the 1970’s up through the antics of Peggy Hyra and on into the present moment where the chattering classes amounts to the hot girls in glasses sipping their caramel macchiato across the way from you, expertly weaving a pencil through her strawberry locks and it’s all you can do to pick up your jaw from the pool of drool on the floor.
In short: Men need help! They need a place that they can go and be pampered, they need a place where they can go and not worry, they need a place like John Allan’s. John Allan’s introduces their concept as simply as any: “Offering a return to a simpler time. When a man had a place he could call his own.” John Allan’s is part barber shop, part salon, and all the answer to the ails of men the world over.
John Allan’s has been around since 1988 and these locations have thrived in major metropolitan areas for exactly the reason stated; because men descend on their daily grind and it can turn into a major blind when all the grinding at work is only continued by the grinding at home (after your long commute in major traffic!) It’s enought to make a sane man go mad!
John Allan’s offers an array of services. Haircuts, highlights, coloring, hair “relaxer”, manicure (more like MAN-icure) facial, massage, and pedicure; all done in a non-threatening environment where men don’t need to worry about anything. Men can also get their shoes shined, repaired, and their golf spikes cleaned or individual spikes on your favorite pair of cleats replaced.
There are relaxing spas for women and couples, ad nausea in cities and towns the world over. At John Allan’s in New York or Chicago, men can come in and just be themselves. At John Allan’s “…a scalp massaging shampoo and a steaming hot towel eases the pressures of the day.” So next time you’re feeling wrought; stop in! “Relax in a leather club chair for the perfect haircut and experience the signature full service” at John Allan’s!
