As its name suggests, this salon/spa is strictly for the guys, but it's located right in the heart of Boystown—so it's a touch more fabulous than other men-only spas. The small space, where stylists cut hair ($15 and up) may be full of soothing brown leather tones, but the real soothing area is the facial room off to the side. The Anti-Aging Treatment ($80) uses a papaya mask that rejuvenates skin while you listen to soft music. We suspect this room isn't comfortable all the time, though, since it's also the same space where the “manscaping” takes place. Who knows, though, in such a calming environment, even a thong wax ($70) might be bearable.
