Why we love it

The masters of male grooming invite you to reveal the ‘Tru-Man’ underneath. Truman’s Gentlemen’s Groomers infuses luxury spa treatments and the precision of a straight-edged blade with a social, relaxed yet professional atmosphere. Timeless and comfortable, Truman’s offers discerning gentlemen a solution to age-old spa versus barber dilemma.

  • Take home your choice of Truman’s award-winning shampoo or shaving cream
  • Sales tax is included in the price of this experience

Description

Truman’s offers an alternative to the repetitive and formulaic strains of modern life that are placed on man. Striving to keep a fresh, professional look often involves little more than a rough blade, a thin lather and the inevitably tense aftershave routine. At Truman’s Gentlemen’s Groomers, things are done much differently.

Truman’s burst onto the scene in 2006, offering to address the void made by the polar distinctions between spa pampering and buzz-cut barbers. Bringing a wave of modernism to a centuries old craft, business partners Joe Marchesi & John Esposito grew rapid popularity among aggrieved, male New Yorker's. Endearingly awarded Best Place to Feel like Don Draper in New York by Village Voice in 2010, Truman’s now boasts two store locations, both in the refreshing Upper East Side, testament to the character and ideals Truman’s hold dear.

Welcomed in, Truman’s reputation does not disappoint. Invited to sit in the ‘waiting area’, a fully-stocked liquor bar, you become fully aware Truman’s is like no other, as you sit clutching something dark and on the rocks, turning your gaze to the various live sports available on multiple screens that decorate the room.

When your time has come, you’ll be invited into one of the contemporary booths, washing away any feeling of angst of being watched over by your fellow Truman's compatriots. Seated in a stylish red, Belmont-brand Naugahyde chair, a wave of pleasant aromas creep in and your treatment begins.

You’ll be treated to a soothing hot lather and clean, crisp straight-edged shave, as your shoes are professionally shined in the neighbouring room. Enjoy a relaxing hair wash, scalp massage and bespoke haircut, expertly styled using Truman’s brand products, voted Best Styling Product by Men’s Health. Your experience is completed with the respectful and thoughtfully named “handshake maintenance”, a masculine manicure that treats the area’s most noticeable on your hands in business encounters. Leaving you refreshed and revitalised, Truman’s Gentlemen’s Groomers will prepare you for whatever the day may bring, perfect for a gentleman on-the-go.
