Roosters Men’s Grooming Center   

A men's salon experience that blends cutting edge styles with old-fashioned services

Are you the kind of guy who wants more than a run-of-the-mill barber shop haircut?

Roosters, a salon on Hebron Avenue, is an upscale grooming center for men, where you can get everything from a precision haircut to a classic hot-steam towel and a straight-razor facial shave. 

"What we offer here is more of a personalized experience, from the initial consultation to detailing the completed style with the right products for the client's hair." “says Eleni Tsombanos, manager of Roosters in Glastonbury. "We make sure it's a one-of-a-kind experience, and that's what keeps people coming back. We build relationships with our clientele and look forward to each appointment." 

Rooster’s’ services include the Roosters Club Cut, a precision cut that includes a shampoo massage and a hot-towel treatment, The Signature 7-Step Facial Shave, and the Gentlemen’s Choice, which includes the full-service Club Cut and Shave. 

Roosters also offers Beard Trims, Head Shaves (with straight razor), Kids Cuts, and a Professional “Hero Cut,” giving a special price for all active duty or retired service members, fire and EMS professionals. 

The salon provides shaving services and beard styling consultations , as well. Eleni, who has worked at Roosters in Glastonbury for eight years, says Rooster’s straight-razor shaves are especially popular. 

“I take great pride in my straight-razor services,” says Eleni, who is a Connecticut licensed barber. 

The salon’s beard styling services include showing clients how to care for their beards between shaves.

“It’s been especially important after Covid, when a lot of guys grew their beards out,” Eleni says. 

"We’ll take the time to clean up the lines on the cheeks, the throat, and the overall shape of their beard. We even show our clients what they can do to maintain their appearance between appointments, and recommend the appropriate beard oils or balms, too." “

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 19, and Eleni said a Roosters gift card makes a great present for that special dad in your life.
