The 2015 Father’s Day Guide – Hairdressers and spas –
The blind barber
339 E. 10th St., nr. Avenue B; 212-228-2123
Boozy and Convenient: All services here, including the $ 50 shave, include a free drink. (Owner Adam Krischenbaum says Old-Fashioneds and JalapeÃ±o-tipped Smoke ‘n’ Dagger are two of the more popular choices.) You can also get him some of the store’s best-selling hop infusions (yes, like in beer) 90 Proof Hair Pomade ($ 18), which thickens and holds with a matte finish. And if dad likes to party, the cocktail bar stays open after the barbers leave at 9am.
Sharps Barber and Shop at Parker Meridien
119 W. 56th St., nr. Sixth Avenue; 212-557-4400
Tucked away in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien, the London-based brand’s only New York location is offering an old-fashioned âSharps Straight Razor Shaveâ for $ 40. It’s a full 30 minute treatment with repeated applications of steamed towels and warm shaving cream, finished with cool towels and Sharps Kid Glove Moisturizing Gel ($ 8 and a nice gift). Vintage Koken barber chairs in black leather and 20th century steel sinks add to the classic vibe.

Hairdressing salon Tomcats
135 India Street, nr. Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn; 718-349-9666
A haircut and hot shave cost $ 30 each at this vintage barber shop that’s known for their retro hairstyles like pompadours and bouffants. The owners previously owned a motorcycle shop; therefore, customers will often see Harleys parked outside. The industrial-style space is centered around eight 1920s leather chairs that sit on a black-and-white checkerboard floor.

The two-hour session includes a consultation, hair wash with scalp massage, straight shave with hot foam, haircut, manicure, shoe polish and a 60-minute massage. (A variety of other gift packages including massages, shoe polishes, and manicures are also available, starting at $ 80.)
