18|8 Fine Men's Salons specialize in delivering exemplary grooming and styling treatments for men who want to look their absolute best. Each and every one of its services is focused toward helping men look and feel better and gain more confidence in overall appearance. Professional stylists and barbers at 18|8 give more than great men's haircuts; they also give great advice on men's style, trends, and grooming products. They are committed to paying time, attention, and courtesy to each customer who walks through its doors. We recently sat down with Monica Harter, owner of 18|8 Fine Men's Salons Lake Forest location, to find out more about the business:

Tell us a little bit about your business? What makes it unique?

Our vision is to help men transform themselves to look, feel,and perform their best. From the moment they walk into the salon, they are greeted by our Director of Impression, who checks customers in - notifying our stylists their client has arrived. Our waiting area is made up of comfortable chairs and a large flat screen, high-definition TV where many can enjoy watching sports games while choosing from a variety of complimentary refreshments. We take pride in making the hair cutting experience as personable as possible by offering partitioned cutting-stations with sinks so once you sit down you never have to leave your chair.

What types of services do you offer?

All of our grooming and styling services are geared toward saving our clients time and money. Some services we offer include: haircuts, coloring services, skin treatments, waxing, blade shaves, scalp and face treatments, and nail treatments.

We also offer membership packages designed to streamline and eliminate the additional time required to pay after each visit. These packages include assortments of services including haircuts and clean-ups, and a choice of a scalp or face treatment, manicure or shave. Additionally, members receive 15% off all retail products. It’s our way of saying thanks to our repeat customers.

How did you get involved in your industry?

My husband and I have always known we wanted to own our own business. When we first thought of the idea, we researched countless industries and were unsure which one we wanted to further explore. We both enjoy helping people and thought of different industries that can help us achieve that goal. We were also searching for a business that could give us flexibility, since we have two young children, that we would otherwise not have if we worked in corporate America. We ultimately decided on 18|8 Fine Men's Salon because of its commitment to making men look and feel their absolute best, giving them the confidence to go out in the world and continue to be successful, while obtaining the flexibility we both envisioned.

Why did you choose to locate in Lake Forest?

Lake Forest is a business friendly City, with an excellent residential community. Our family is actively involved in the community, and I participate in countless City and Lake Forest Chamber-sponsored events throughout the year. Our business has a fantastic storefront location in The Arbor shopping center directly off major freeways, so it made perfect sense for us to locate here.

Any special promotions we can advertise?

We are offering $15 off an Executive Haircut for New Clients for the month of August. The haircut includes a shoulder massage and hot towel.
