Fellas, you needn’t travel far for a satisfying grooming experience.
At Noland for Men, a new boutique barbershop in Greenwich, guests can savor hairdressing and shaving services to the tune of classic rock — with a signature cocktail in hand (after 4 p.m.).
“We wanted to create a space where men could enjoy a brief respite from the everyday world and leave feeling recharged, getting their hair cut and beard trimmed in the process,” says co-owner Christopher Noland, who talked about his plans for the barbershop in last July’s WAG.
This latest addition to the Noland brand — which includes the Christopher Noland Salon & Beauty Spa, Do’s blow-dry bar and Teddy’s Kidz Cutz, all in Greenwich — is part of the company’s goal of becoming an all-encompassing hair-care business. The barbershop is the only location that caters exclusively to male clientele — which is apparent in everything from its services to its ambience.
The décor, reminiscent of an old-fashioned barbershop, features maroon leather barber chairs anchored in a stone floor. Distressed wooden cabinets serve as the barbers’ stations, while a neon green accent color offers a sharp contrast. Whimsical wall adornments include a neon moustache sign and a faux taxidermy wall mount, which hangs over the inside door.
Lining the walls are classic albums ranging from Miles Davis to Michael Jackson, The Beach Boys to Pink Floyd. These serve a dual purpose.
“We wanted them for decoration, but just ask and we’ll play your favorite,” Noland says. “It’s an easygoing atmosphere.”
Noland for Men has a range of hairdressing services — such as haircuts, buzz cuts and beard and neck trims — as well as junior cuts for guests ages 12 and under. Shaving services include a hot lather shave — which Noland dubs “the man’s version of a relaxing and stimulating facial” — a head shave straight razor, a hot lather neck shave and a combination of services, including a cut and hot lather shave.
For clients with salt-and-pepper hair, the salon offers Color Camo, a 10-minute process to sobtly diminish the gray.
“It’s the perfect solution to keep a hint of gray hair to acknowledge your wisdom while camouflaging the rest to reinforce your youth,” Noland says.
In addition to individual services, clients can purchase monthly membership, which includes a haircut and one neck trim, in addition to 10 percent off of all other products and services.
