5 Spots to Get the Best Professional Shave

Germaine Benson and Ray Dennison | April 11, 2017 | Feature Features

Few (legal) pleasures in life are as enjoyable as a professional shave. Here are five that do right by the blade...and your face.
The Art of Shaving's hot-lather shave lives up to the venue's name.

1. In Montrose, The Argyle League offers a tumbler of whiskey to start off its straight razor shave and haircut combination ($70). The shave includes both hot and cold towel services, and you can swing by for a complimentary follow-up trim before your next big cut. 709 W. Alabama St., 713.702.1026

2. The Royal Shave ($60) experience at The Art of Shaving is regal, indeed. We’re talking two hot towel applications, a hot lather, a close shave, an aftershave mask, a cool towel and a soothing aftershave balm. Baby smooth is right. Locations at the Galleria, the Woodlands Mall and Baybrook Mall

3. With locations in The Woodlands, Memorial and the Heights, the Boardroom’s always razor close. Go for a traditional hot lather sgave ($55) at the classically wood-paneled Galleria location in BLVD Place. Massages and facials are also offered. Multiple locations

4. Martin Hristov learned to trim hair at Paris’ famed Jean-Louis David, and his Martin’s Gentlemen Salon near Greenway Plaza pulls in an endless stream of clients for coifs and cuts. Hristov’s team also offers beard trimming and a great executive shave ($62) for the most dapper of gents. 4102 Richmond Ave., 713.871.1229

5. For Downtown suits, duck out of the office for a quick midday break at Shave on West Dallas Street. The most popular package ($55) comes with a mini-facial and scalp and neck massage. 702B W. Dallas St., 713.487.0034
