Recently, we gave you a list of recommended Montreal old-school barbers; this week, we take things into the present with a look at the city’s finest salons, stylists and dens of metrosexual delights.
They may not be all that manly, MANN, but man they certainly go beyond the haircut. Indulge in a straight-razor shave, Swedish massage, back (or other parts) waxing, manicures, pedicures and countless facial treatments. From $35. 449 Viger Ave. W., 514-395-0707.
Established in the late ’80s, Coupe Bizzarre is the antithesis of the old-school barber — think edgy, trend-driven styles. From $45. 3770 St. Laurent Blvd, 514-843-3433.
Forget about the Olympics. For a competition that really matters, check out the Hair World Championships; owner Gagnon won a gold medal in ’98, and has 20 years of experience. From $45. 3801 St. Laurent Blvd, 514-841-1000.
Sip a beer while getting trimmed at this staple salon on the Main. Choose a stylist from their large and experienced team, most of whom have earned reputations at the city’s top salons. From $30. 3688 St. Laurent Blvd, 514-985-2999.
Here’s a place that knows men’s hair: Le Pascha assesses type, growth pattern and facial construction, as well as subtly “camouflaging” grey areas, if you desire. After the cut, treat yourself to a shaving session, hand and foot detailing, waxing, massaging and more. $35. 6424 Decarie Blvd, 514-735-1124.
