Rice Village Camera Shop Mans Up, Becomes Salon

A buildout of the old Wolf Camera spot in Rice Village has fixed up this strip-center suite at 2526 Rice Blvd. into a franchise of The Boardroom, which says it provides “a relaxed grooming experience for men.” That experience here includes — besides the little flourish of authenticity that is that barber’s pole — waxes, hot lather shaves, massages, and color treatments. This 3rd 2nd Houston location opened about a week ago; there’s one in Highland Village and another up in The Woodlands. Inside, polished wood floors and finishes and a pool table imply the sophistication of these upper-management-level proceedings; a trim of the power beard will set you back $12; a haircut $40.

  • The Highland Village location is not in Highland Village in Houston, but in The Shops at Highland Village in Highland Village, Texas, which is a suburb of the DFW area. The only Houston area locations are the new one in Rice Village and one in The Woodlands.

  • @Russell: You’re right. Thanks! The story has been updated.

  • I can’t see more of a waste of $$ than to pay $55 for a shave. Your just going to have to shave again in less than 24 hours!!!!

    That’s also a bit much for a haircut but at least that’s good for a month.
