Sol's Gents Hairdressing
A metrosexual confession: men like a little pampering sometimes too. I'm not talking about a manicure, a foot massage or, God forbid, colonic irrigation. Shaving every day can get a bit dull. Its just one more hurdle whilst trying to get to work on time in the morning. Iron a shirt, eat some breakfast, kiss the wife and herd the kids to school; there's just so much to do. Which is why, every once in a while, its nice to let someone else scrape the hairs off your face. Someone who, unlike you, won't be pulling grotesque faces in front of the mirror in order to look a little groomed. Trumper's in Jermyn Street are the undisputed kings of the traditional shave but at £40 a time, its not something somebody on an average salary can do in London. At Sol's you get all the ceremony of hot towels, being shaved twice and finished off with soothing balms, all for £6 per wet shave. That, my friends, is a stone cold bargain. And besides, the feel of the naked blade on your skin makes you feel like such a man.
