The Hoboken Man, a new waterfront salon in Hoboken, NJ, was created in order to address the city’s lack of masculine places to get groomed. “We saw that Hoboken men wanted an upscale place to get their hair cut—not the typical female-centric salons that populate Hoboken,” says co-owner Dan Hood. The space is a modern version of the classic barbershop, with richly stained wood panel walls lined with a collection of vintage Playboy magazine covers (including the first-ever cover featuring Marilyn Monroe), chrome accents and exposed ductwork for an industrial feel. Eight flat-panel high definition televisions are placed strategically throughout the shop to provide optimal viewing for clients.
