If you want to see a tour of the place, here’s a recent local news clip on YouTube:
And last, but certainly not least, there is V’s Barbershop. Being a regular customer for several years, this spot incorporates the latest technology for an excellent barbershop experience. Since Men’s Refinery Barberspa closed its doors, you won’t find a man cave that offers a round of indoor golf and drinks after your haircut here. But this is better.
V’s gentleman’s shave and signature cuts are the perfect options for a quick lunch break or relaxing weekend. They offer prompt service, reasonable prices, and a quick shoulder massage is included!
A full listing of V’s Barbershop services can be found here.
And finally, for those days when you can’t make it to the spa, perhaps try using a handheld massage gun, scalp massager, and a blackout sleep mask. These are the ones I prefer and they can be found on Amazon.
