18|8 Fine Men’s Salon
Designed with the most elite gentleman in mind, the meaning behind the name of 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon speaks to its mantra. In 1913, Henry Brearley discovered that, by adding 18% chromium and 8% nickel to steel, it eliminated the capacity of the steel to oxidize and rust. The result? The 18|8 formula made the steel look and perform better. In the same way, 18|8 strives to make already-successful men look, perform and feel their best. This new Coral Gables salon has everything the man in your life needs: from haircuts, styling, and face and scalp treatments, to shaves, waxing, nail treatments and more. 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon is located at 261 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, FL 33134. It is open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and on Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Well Groomed Gentleman
Around since 2014, this men’s all-in-one barbershop and spa lounge that gives every sophisticated man a place for him to “groom”—with hairstyling, hot-lather straight-razor shaves, and hand and foot care, to getting massages, skin care treatments and more. The idea is simple: if you want to do better, you should look and feel amazing, too. At this male salon to the stars, you can pay by the service, or opt for a monthly membership. Priced at just $60 a month, The Well Groomed Gentleman Premier Membership package gives the gentleman in your life their choice of one premier service a month, like a one-hour facial, a one-hour massage, a WGG Haircut & Gentleman’s Shave, a mani-pedi-Paraffin combo, waxing, or The Modern Gentleman Deluxe shave. Well Groomed Gentleman is located at 130 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, FL 33134. It is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and on Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Junior & Hatter
Wynwood is about more than good art and good food these days. In fact, wander on over to Junior & Hatter, and you’ll see they’re all about good grooming, too. This indie-rustic salon-turned-barbershop is almost too cool for the average Miamian. Thanks to its decor (think: boating paraphernalia, a piano from 1906, black-and-white photos, a dart board and a 1072 Vespa), it has a vintage vibe, a folk feel, and even hosts open-bar comedy nights whenever Wynwood hosts one of its monthly Art Walks. While you’re here, get Old World treatments like proper hot towel shaves, beard trimming, classic cuts, manicures and pedicures. And ladies, if you come with him, there’s something for you, too… like haircuts, highlights, single process, color correction, keratin treatments, hair extensions, eyelash tinting, makeup and more. Junior & Hatter is located at 2750 NW 3rd Avenue, Miami, FL 33127. It is open Mondays and Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Tuesdays through Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Miles & Lyle Luxury Barber Shops
Looking for that Old World barbershop experience with a modern touch? Miles & Lyle, in Aventura, is where you’ll find it. Here, barbering goes back to what it historically was: a treatment for royals only. Gentlemen can go for haircuts, straight razor shaves, manicures, pedicures, facials, massages, reflexology, hair coloring, beard and mustache trim, hair removal and shoeshine, all of which are performed in private rooms with personal flat screen TVs and surround sound. Plus, adding to your experience, this barbershop lets you indulge in every way possible. Enjoy your bespoke service with a complimentary coffee, cappuccino and hot chocolate service, biscotti or muffins, and if you’re ready for it, even a glass of red or white wine. Miles & Lyle Luxury Barber Shops is located at 19044 NE 29th Avenue, Aventura FL 33180. It is open Tuesdays through Fridays, from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
