Luxury Barbershop Blackstone Brings Men’s Grooming Tradition Forward in Madrid
Gone are the proper grooming days of gentlemen from the Victorian era; however there are still a few old-fashioned barbershops that follow suit to London’s Truefitt & Hill first established in 1805. Although this particular establishment is not located in England but in the heart of Spain—Madrid to be exact situated in one of the many sophisticated neighbourhoods nudging shoulders with top-end shops and luxury enthusiasts abound.
Blackstone, a luxury wellness club for men only caters to its VIP clientele with the best products including Truefitt & Hill, Redken For Men, Skeyndor, Marvis and many other well-known men’s care lines. The wellness club offers haute coiffure hairdressing, classic barbershop cut throat shaving and other men’s esthetics such as massage, hair removal and manicure whether you are in town on holiday or business it is certainly found on the top of the list for the elite visiting Madrid. Executive haircut packages start from 20€ to 100€ for a deluxe package featuring haircut, shave, manicure and eyebrow maintenance whilst other services range in pricing.
Blackstone was first established with the bespoke services to pamper and groom oneself with good taste, elegance and refinement in mind especially with the bustling modern day at hand it was an opportunity to create a serene, clean environment for their clientele. The name of “Blackstone” actually stemmed from the stone of natural origin that traditional barbers utilise for sharpening razors with moistened oil on the stone’s natural sedimentation properties. Rizos S.L., the salon group behind more than 100 established hair salon chains, training schools and franchises since 1975 wanted to deliver a unique experience for the VIP club members and walk-in appointments beyond a conveyor belt type establishment that is surely quite the opposite for any local or travelling patron entering Blackstone.
Those curious in becoming a Blackstone club member can have a black membership card issued to them with several membership benefits that are offered in member loyalty beyond a traditional walk-in appointment scheduled. Thus whether you are enjoying hot towel service, cut throat shaving or a much needed massage whilst sipping on your café con leche or champagne you will find the only “traditional barbershop” quality missing is the singing but surely you can hum yourself a little medley, if need be.
