Sloane Square Barbers & Shoppe

Say hello to the shave experts. Sloane Square, a modern gentlemen’s sanctuary, is founded under the notion that men like to be pampered too. The concept, in its most basic form, is to provide men with a sanctuary to be groomed. A membership focused club, with non-member a la carte services as well, Sloane Square focuses on luxury haircuts, English style straight-razor shaves, beard trims, mini-facials, and nail grooming as the centerpiece of the experience. With a spotlight on a comfortable atmosphere and the individual customer, not an assembly line setting, Sloane Square offers its customers a service that fits their desires, the best in men’s grooming products with every treatment, as well as a beverage of their choice, hot towel, and shoulder massage. The shop offers an executive shave membership that lets Miami’s chicest men enjoy unlimited monthly hot lather shaves as well as neck line and sideburn renewal. The hot lather shave at Sloan is a true gentlemen’s luxury. Classically prepared with hot towels, facial cleanser and scrub, pre shave oil, warm lather, a fresh aftershave balm and accompanied by a shoulder massage, this treatment will leave you ready for that special night out or important business meeting.

Razzledazzle Barbershop

Razzledazzle is a return to this bygone era. It’s a spa treatment for guys, from an age before anybody had heard of spas. A place where men can experience the lost art of the hot lather shave, traditional haircuts, hand and foot care, massages and shoe shines. But without the worry of being rubbed out by a rival crime family. So come on by and lose yourself in a genuinely old fashioned, yet thoroughly modern, honest-to-golly barbershop. You’ll leave feeling better, and looking better, than you have in years.

Sassoon Salon

For over 50 years, Sassoon Salon has created and maintained a modern method of hair design that continues to evolve and inspire clients worldwide. They achieve this through an unparalleled system of training and effective skills development that has become definitive – the Sassoon name evokes the best in hair. The Sassoon ethos of technical excellence, commitment to creativity and training are the core intrinsic values upheld by the team. The resulting hair design celebrates the inherent beauty of the individual and is expressed in the uncompromising creativity of their collections. Luxe, the new men’s collection from Sassoon presents an ultra-modern masculinity with a dash of the Edwardian dandy, refined and unassumingly elegant – an antidote to the uniformity of sportswear and the aimless pursuit of the overly avant-garde. By channeling the contemporary catwalk collections of Lucas Ossendrijver at Lanvin and Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga and using svelte smoking jackets and sharp city tailoring, Luxe moves masculinity away from anti-fit to an effortless metropolitan elegance. Artfully disheveled cuts have a masculine panache that distils the essence of traditional grooming and iconic barbering into a collection of immaculately crafted cuts and color using superior Sassoon technique.
