Shave and a Haircut

Face it, getting a proper shave at a barbershop isn't the easiest thing to find in a city that isn't home. And men today are demanding a little more pomp with their circumstance when it comes to getting properly dressed. So whether it’s a simple haircut, a suit for a night out or a true-blue, straight-razor shave, here are a few of Dallas' best locations to embrace the inner “Dapper Dan.”

Rob’s Chop Shop
Playfully billed as “Sleaze and Greaze Texas Style,” this rockabilly-themed shop specializes in pompadours with a touch of shine. The salon is decked with black-and-white tiled floors, '50s-style Coke machines and retro barber chairs, while the air is filled with the sounds of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. 3613 Parry Ave., 214-824-7627, www.robschopshop.com

Billy Reid
Specializing in sophisticated, Southern-inspired fashions, this designer leans heavily on seasonal trends and luxe products for men ranging from top-tier attire to leather bags, belts, neckwear and a wide array of footwear. The Heirloom collection also offers a complete line of fully tailored tops and bottoms for a more custom fit. 70 Highland Park Village, 214-346-0010, www.billyreid.com

Floyd’s 99 Barbershop
The aesthetic might look like a cross between a tattoo parlor and a recording studio, but with a hip and professional staff of expert stylists, Floyd’s treats patrons like royalty.

Cowboy Up
For a taste of Southern comfort, head to this stylish and Western-themed salon for men. Cowboy Up offers hair services for both the grown-up cowpokes and "lil' buckaroos" in a comfortable, Texas-style environment. Visitors can grab a cold one and sit back for a quick trim or settle in and enjoy the full range of grooming options such as beard/mustache trims, waxing or even color treatments. Giddy-up. 6030 Luther Ln., Suite 120, 214-361-2011, www.cowboyupcuts.com

The Gent’s Place
Just like the name implies, this is the salon for men who still want to be treated like men when they pamper themselves. The Gent’s Place offers a full line of services tailor-made for the professional gentleman, like straight-razor shaves, hair color and grey treatments, and a complete line of waxing services. The pièce de résistance is their modern spa with full packages customized for any taste. 6975 Lebanon Rd., Ste. 303, 469-579-4417. www.thegentsplace.com
