"We are excited to see 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons make its entrance into the Houston area at Hughes Landing in The Woodlands. The salon adds to the dynamic atmosphere being established in Hughes Landing.

Customers may even purchase memberships that provide member perks such as complimentary clean-ups and other grooming benefits. 18|8 offers men the same transformative effect from which the name 18|8 comes – transforming raw steel, by adding 18% chromium and 8% nickel to make a better looking and better performing end product known to us as stainless steel.

 

"We’re all about the experience, convenience, and semi-privacy that our clients love and come to expect. Add to that a light massage, hot towel treatment, and beer on the house, while being surrounded by lakeside views as well as shopping and fine-dining delights. Every man deserves to look and feel like a million bucks,” said John-Michael Stern, Franchise Owner of 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons in Hughes Landing.
