Gentlemen's Hair Lounge 

Step into this plush sanctuary in Subiaco and you’ll feel as if you’ve entered a private men’s club, with leather chesterfields, warm timber floors and countertops displaying complimentary scotch or whiskey (you can choose a beer or “manly” cocktail if it’s hot; coffee if it’s too early). The Gentleman George package combines a hairstyling session with a head massage, peppermint hot-towel facial wrap and a traditional neck shave. Got some greys? Ask about the discreet blending service using American Crew products.

Westons Barbershop

The traditional hot-towel shave at this Northbridge barbershop kicks off with a massage using Proraso cream scented with eucalyptus and menthol and finishes with a cool towel compress and a splash of Turkish lemon cologne. It gets busy here – appointments are recommended – but the pool table and beer fridge mean that hanging out pre-treatment is no hardship.
