Sex and the City (Salt Lake, that is ...)

Somehow, I don't think it will be long before you hear about this story in the Utah news ...

Bikini Cuts is a men's hair salon where the stylists wear bikinis, and it has recently opened two Salt Lake City-area shops. Their web site says:

"At Bikini Cuts it’s not just about getting the best haircut you’ve ever had, it’s about having the best salon experience of your life! We all know how uptight and girlie most salons are, so here at Bikini Cuts we do everything we can to make the Bikini Cuts experience the best salon experience a guy can have!"
Oh man, a guy can get a haircut, a scalp massage, a pedicure or manicure, hand massages ... and look, the waiting room has "Maxim," not "Better Closets & Under-Bed Storage"!

Dammit, this is one of those times I wish I had hair. But I also wonder how long it will be before the generally uptight populace of Salt Lake City makes those girls wear one-piece swimsuits and raincoats.

Who says you have to have hair to take advantage of the scalp massage, pedicure, manicure, or hand massage? Go for it!

As to the other ... well, you may need to make a quick trip to Salt Lake City!

I can just imagine a bald guy walking into a bikini-clad hair salon and asking for a pedicure.

Wouldn't that be saying you buy Playboy for the articles? (No, really, I do. Honest.)

At first I worried about barbers in bikinis. Those guys didn't even look so good in those white aprons that they used to wear, then I looked at the link and realized that the haircutters were younger and female.

Actually, looks more like they'd be better at waxing than cutting hair though. Still, I'd never get my hair done in a place called the "BeehiveState".

Salt Lake City is the last place I'd expect to have this sort of a barber shop. Hmmmm. Oh well.

And you don't think the bikini'd stylists and manicurists were aware of that factor when they started their salon? May have been why they made a point of mentioning the non-styling services. In some ways, it's pretty smart marketing.

Besides, isn't the Chair and CEO of Playboy a woman? Of course she knows you don't read it just for the articles!
