The hair salon is a bewildering thing.
The Chinese menu of under-eye serums. The un-comfy sounding facial peels. The possibility of Enya.
Here’s your alternative, fella: John Allan’s, the just-opened men’s grooming club in the basement of the Beverly Hills Saks.
The first LA location after 20 years of coiff-cropping in NYC, John Allan’s is a modish man-cave just down the staircase at the front of Sak’s.
Simply descend one flight. Straight ahead: Sak’s new Denim Bar.
A standard visit also includes a shoeshine, manicure and facial massage from one of eight stylists, all of whom were trained by John Allan, himself the former sheers-wielding Paduan to Jean Louis David.
Shaves, beard trims and massages are also available.
All blessedly Enya-free.
