Chris Brown, owner of 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon in Oakley, believes that when you look better, you feel better, you perform better. This principal is the promise 18|8 strives to deliver on with every guest. It’s also the inspiration for their upcoming event, High Performance at 18|8. High Performance at 18|8 is about providing guests with a high-end experience by top performing brands.
Attendees at the event will receive services from 18|8 and the chance to rub elbows with the FC Cincinnati Men’s Professional Soccer Team. This is all taking place against a backdrop of exotic cars with craft beer and bourbon being served. Complimentary chair massages from Elements Massage will be available as well as unique shopping experiences with local high-end retailers such as Ziv Trading Company.
18|8 Fine Men’s Salon celebrates modern masculine style and will have special pricing on gift baskets and certificates that were put together to indulge dads and grads! Brown explained that the 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon Executive Haircut comes with a consultation, shampoo and conditioning, scalp cleanse, hot towel facial, five-minute neck, and shoulder massage, plus styling.
Top-notch grooming and styling services are just a few of the reasons the FC Cincinnati Men’s Professional Soccer Team chose 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon as their official men’s grooming expert. For Brown, this relationship is “another opportunity to deliver our promise with a group of guys that are at the top of their profession and it’s important that they look good and have confidence when they take the field,” he says.
Brown has certainly seen how everything from a straight razor shave to a style overhaul inspires confidence. “You can tell just by the way they [clients] are walking and carrying themselves, they are feeling better and ready to take on the world. We often will get a positive online review or even just an in-person, on-the-spot compliment back to us that this was the best grooming experience they have ever had,” he says.
The best part about the upcoming event? It’s for a good cause! Proceeds from VIP ticket sales will go to the Dragonfly Foundation, which benefits children with cancer. “My son experienced some major medical issues when he was about 12 months old […] so helping a charity like Dragonfly that is so involved and important in helping the families and children impacted by something as serious as cancer touches my heart,” Brown says.
The event is free to attend, however, $20 VIP tickets gives attendees the exclusive opportunity for autographs and professional photos with FC Cincinnati players, a swag bag of products and gift certificates valued at $200, and 20% off at 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon. Tickets can be purchased in advance.
High Performance at 18|8 will be held June 16 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon, 3110 Vandercar Way. For more information about 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon services stop by their website. To be in then know about specials and events follow them on Facebook.
