Great Place for Boys' Haircuts!

By Guest Blogger, Jane D

I’m not sure if other moms of boys have a hard time getting a good haircut for their son but I do. There is always some part that is either too long or too short and it takes a couple weeks just to start looking halfway decent. We’ve tried everything from the salon where I get my haircut to Sports Clips and just haven’t had good results. The other day, we walked in to The Boardroom and he was able to get his haircut right away.

The place is very nice and only for men (and boys). The lady, who happens to be the manager, did a fabulous job and was really good with him while he got his haircut. Although it is a little pricey at $15, he only goes every couple months so it is worth it for me. I highly recommend The Boardroom at 3346 Robinhood Road(between TJ Maxx & BIZI Kidz).

The Boardroom Salon for Men started in 2004 with locations throughout Texas, and just opened its first NC location here in Winston-Salem. The Boardroom is designed to feel like a sophisticated men's club, but it's atmosphere is more of a throw back to earlier times. In addition to haircuts, the Boardroom also offers men massages, facials, hot lather shaves, and hand and foot grooming services.

And, this post happens to be published the same day as the Boardroom's Grand Opening Celebration for its Winston-Salem salon. Located in the Sherwood Plaza (at the corner of Peacehaven and Robinhood Roads), the Grand Opening Event will take place from 4 to 8 pm, and men can expect to enjoy power head and neck massages, entertainment, refreshments and appetizers from Mozelle's Fresh Southern Bistro, and door prizes. For more information, visit the Boardroom Salon online.

And if you go to the Grand Opening Event, be sure to tell them TriadSmartyPants sent you!

The Boardroom is not just great for our husbands, but for our sons. If you've been, we'd love to hear about your experiences at the Boardroom. And TriadSmartyPants wants to know where else you go for great kid haircuts in the Triad. Add your comments below!

Thanks for sharing, Jane! I thought of you and Wes when I walked by there yesterday. It looks so nice inside! Since my son's hair is always a complete disaster, it might be time to give the Boardroom a shot!

Went by last night and my husband LOVED it! I think I'll be getting him a gift card for Fathers' Day!

My huband loved it, too. He called it his "SPA".

Hi - For what it's worth - We've taken our son to Mr. Greg at Ardmore Barber Shop - Our son had a "thing" about getting his hair washed, touched, anything when he was younger (some may call it sensory issues) Mr. Greg was the ONLY one we could find who could cut his hair without him totally losing it!

Along with my husband, I am co-owner of The Boardroom Salon for Men and want to Thank You all for your kind comments about our salon. We have been open since Decemebr and are doing well. Please keep The Boardroom in mind with Father's Day approaching. Also, and I think this is really cute, a few mom's have purchased gift certificates for a "Buddy Cut"($15)which is placed in a fancy gift bag with tissue paper and product samples. This has apparently become a big "hit" for a birthday present choice for school aged boys. Maybe its because they can play pool and have a soda while getting their hair cut.
