Soak in the calm sanctuary of our urban oasis.


Each of our bespoke barbers’ chairs has been handcrafted in Osaka, Japan by the master artisans at Takara Belmont, making them the most luxurious chairs in the City of Brotherly Love. Sit back in them, as you melt into a classic hot shave or an award-winning trim.  Let the day slip away as you luxuriate in our Yume Chair (known as the most opulent head message experience in the world), and receive the only Tokyo Style Head-Spa treatment in our region. Let the scents of highly curated grooming products mingle with the aroma of the specialty cocktail in your glass; then, allow us to handle the rest. We are here just for you. Our team will ensure when you step out of the DAPR Grooming Parlour, you will leave a better man, without a hair out of place.

A treatment service has been scientifically proven to decrease tension and increase blood flood flow to the head, all while purifying the scalp and hair follicles for optimal health.  This treatment is a literal game changer.


Our philosophy is about holistic practice.  In this world, people are faced with more stresses and pressures than ever before.  Our goal is to create a culture of self-care for our clients, with an emphasis on wellbeing both physically and mentally.  We are offering one of the most relaxing and healthful services not yet known in our market.  The Tokyo Head Spa is something that every person could benefit from.  Already a sensation in Japan, head spa services are trickling into the United States thanks to the incredible health and wellness benefits discovered.


We have chosen the most luxurious options on the market (hand made in Japan), The Spa Mist IIedges out other steamers as one of the most effective tools on the market. Strategically engineered, this wonder creating tool helps treatments to penetrate the hair, and then utilizes researched scientific methods to seal the follicle with a cooling mist; locking in applied treatments and making them more effective. This in combination with the “YUME” chair, which loosely translates to “dream,” shows us how it earned this title.  Customers can recline fully into luxury, as they lay down with a custom neck rest and contouring pillow to enjoy their rejuvenating treatment.
