New men-focused salons open in Marquette and Escanaba

If you're a fellow looking to get his hair cut in either Marquette or Escanaba, your options aren't limited to just the typical barber shops and salons anymore.

In Marquette, you can stop in at the Guy's Place on US 41, in the same shopping center that includes Starbucks and GameStop. In Escanaba, head over to US 2 and stop at the Man Cave, located right next to the Thai Express.

The Man Cave, which touts itself as a "hair & beard parlor", is open Tuesday through Sunday starting at 10 a.m. except for the noon opening on Sunday. Services include "hand-crafted" haircuts and beard trims and washing/conditioning, as well as scalp treatments, nail treatments, hair coloring, and hair removal.

Similar services are available at the Guy's Place. When you get a haircut there, you not only get the haircut, but also shampooing and conditioning, hot towel treatments, eyebrow and mustache trims, neck trim, and, of course, a shoulder massage. Oh, and you get to watch your own personal television during the cut, too. Other services include grey blending, waxing, and beard trims. While you're waiting, you can shuck shelled peanuts to snack on, read the local newspaper, or watch television.
