Nothing shows off a man’s confidence better than a great haircut or a luxe body treatment that empowers him from the inside out. One of the best ways to do just that is by visiting a haute spot in Boston that caters to his every whim. Here’s a look at five of the best grooming spots in Boston for men.
1 Barbershop Lounge
Shave and a haircut and a round of pool? This Newbury Street haute spot caters to the urban upscale gentleman with its signature hot towel shave complete that pampers men with chamomile eye gel followed by a calming eye massage. Men come here to trim up scraggly beards, enjoy a hot lather shave or shape their eyebrows. Stick around for a game of pool after your treatment while you get a shoe shine.
245 Newbury Street Boston, MA 02116
2 Roosters Men’s Grooming Center
The barbershop has been a classic American staple for men for decades, but at Roosters, they take the experience to a new level with everything from haircuts to beard trims. We recommend the seven-step facial shave that starts off with a hot towel prep to soften the skin with essential oils then moves on to a shave, cleansing and toning treatments. The luxe treatment concludes with moisturizer (they use Aveda Men products), aftershave and talc for baby smooth skin.

Salon Marc Harris knows that men like to get pampered every now and then. If you are one of those guys, head to this swanky salon located adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common. Services here include everything from a custom cut and style to a neck trim, manicure and pedicure. After your treatment, show off your new look at the Equinox Sports Club next door.

4 C. Spa Boston
C. Spa Boston forces men to relax and unwind with their indulgent Back Bay men’s massage that combines the soothing benefits of a sports massage with a custom therapeutic massage. Therapists work for 60 or 90-minutes to relieve pressure and tension leaving him feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Other gentlemen’s treatments here include back, chest and shoulder waxing as well as a Swedish, Deep Tissue & Myofascial Release Therapy treatment designed to improve flexibility and restore alignment.
