Upscale men’s barber-spa franchise headed to downtown Ann Arbor

John White believes that a good barbershop experience involves much more than a haircut, and that’s why he’s bringing the upscale barber and spa franchise Taylor & Colt to Ann Arbor.

“It’s what we call a premium barber-spa and there’s nothing like that in all of Michigan,” said White, who co-owns the franchise.

The Canadian-born franchise pegs itself as an old English-inspired shop that incorporates a spa salon with a traditional barbershop. It offers “shave-cut-wash-style” methods for men, hot towel services, laser hair removal, teeth whitening, manicures, pedicures and nail fixes.

Welcome to the Barber Spa

On December 3, 2012, the first Taylor and Colt ‘barber spa’ franchise opened in downtown Toronto.

This time, the targeted customer base is all-male and there is a much greater emphasis on services than on products.

“We realized there was a huge hole in the market,” says Doug Warren, director of franchising for both brands. “A lot of men today are tired of horrible haircuts experiences and are looking for a more upscale experience.”
