If you are pulling your hair out over what to buy for Father’s Day then today’s Big Deal offers the sort of close shave that any man will appreciate.
This reassuringly traditional Big Deal is with Leo’s Turkish Barbers in the West End. They are offering an open blade shave; a soothing face mask and a sharp haircut.
It’s the ultimate gents’ grooming experience and, come Sunday morning, it’s sure to make the old man grin like he’s just looked in the mirror and seen George Clooney.
Now, we’re not going to get all John Wayne on you and start talking about being a man’s man but let’s just say that we’re pretty sure that if Mad Men’s Don Draper lived on Dumbarton Road then he would use Leo’s to maintain his rugged good looks.
Staffed by experienced barbers, the popular West End salon specialises in open blade shaves. If you, or your Dad, haven’t had one then you are in for a real smooth time.
Forget all the guff about multiple blades shaving close. For a really smooth finish, it has to be a hot towel shave with an open blade.
It’s a relaxing treat and not one to be rushed. Shaving every morning can be a drag but a hot towel shave is a luxury grooming experience to be enjoyed at leisure.
Add in a crisp haircut plus a soothing facial mask and your Dad will emerge from Leo’s feeling as dapper as Draper and looking twice as sharp.
With extensive opening hours, including Sundays, Leo’s makes it easy to fit a shave and a haircut into anybody’s schedule.
Look at it honestly. If you present your Dad with a pair of socks or an ironic bottle of Seventies aftershave on Sunday morning then he will put on a brave face and say thanks.
Surprise him with a voucher for a haircut and open blade shave and, not only are you giving him what is probably a whole new experience, you are also helping him look as handsome as he already thinks he is.
