Drybar customers' boyfriends and husbands now have something to do in upper Georgetown other than hang out at Social Safeway. Roosters Men's Grooming Center of Georgetown opened quietly this spring at 1815 Wisconsin Avenue, offering haircuts and straight-razor facial shaves seven days a week.
The old-fashioned-meets-modern shop is decked out with oversized leather barber chairs in seven semi-private hardwood barber stations. What makes it classic? Wood finishes everywhere. What makes it modern? A big screen TV. And high-end hair and skincare products, like shaving creams from the U.K.'s Edwin Jagger and the Aveda Men line.
A Roosters Club Cut includes shampoo, massage, and hot-towel treatment with a splash of aftershave for $50, and Roosters' seven-step facial shave is also $50, featuring hot-towel prep with essential oils, deep cleansing and toning treatment, talc, and more aftershave. Special discounts are available for college students with ID, active duty military, police, fire and EMS personnel, and boys aged 15 and under. In fact, fathers are encouraged to bring their sons for a little male bonding time. Aw.
