They might not talk about it, but guys want to look their best on the wedding day, too. Still it's hard to persuade them to visit your favorite girly salon. So we fully back the idea behind the men's-only salons that have been popping up all over the country. The latest on the scene in New York City is F.S.C. Barber, a casual, '20s-inspired barbershop from the folks behind the hip Lower East Side clothing outpost Freemans Sporting Club. Your groom can sit down in the shop's antique barber chairs for a straight razor shave and haircut for $70. 212-929-3917. —Lauren Matthews, Associate Editor, Brides Local Magazines
Wedding Wisdom: If your groom is feeling skittish about visiting a salon solo, suggest he book appointments with his groomsmen and make a day of it.
