Upscale Men's Salon to Open at 3rd Ave.

By: Rich Hosford

A high-end salon catering to gentlemen will be opening at the 3rd Ave. development project next year. 


18/8 Fine Men's Salon is set to open its first Massachusetts location 62 Second Avenue in 2015. The 3rd Ave. project is a "boulevard" style development featuring restaurants, Kings bowling, Wegmans and other businesses. 


According to its web site, 18/8 offers men's haircuts, razor-shaves, scalp treatments and grooming services. 


On its Facebook page, 18/8 says men should not go to salons for women. 


"Why? Because a man's hair needs to be finessed in such a way that he can manage it himself without the help of a curling iron or Brazilian blow out," it says. "After all, a woman’s hair salon doesn’t quite have a firm grip about the hair that magically spurts out of places men were never properly warned about. And why would a woman’s hair salon truly care about the peculiarities of a man’s hair growth? Or loss? Or thinness? Or how, and why, a man’s hair grays at a much different pace than hers?"
