This relaxing environment is where aestheticians perform glycolic peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and custom facials that treat everything from fine lines to acne.
It’s safe to assume that a barbershop named Mens Place focuses mostly on men’s grooming services. Look around the entrance, however, and you’ll find no sign that reads “No Girls Allowed.” Rather than flaunt its status as a male-only retreat, Mens Place opts for subtlety with its glossy stone floors, black-leather chairs, and dark-wood accents—not to mention haircuts and styling services that create sharp new looks in a business-like 30 minutes. When they do exceed that self-designated time limit, the stylists have good reason; usually they take a few extra minutes to highlight locks or camouflage gray hairs. When they turn their attention away from the scalp, it’s to arch eyebrows, shine shoes, and escort their clients to a jacuzzi bath filled with cologne.

And before they get pampered, they can take in the spa's soothing ambiance in a naturally lit reception area decked out in mocha and dark-chocolate tones.

The spa, tucked inside Phenix Salon Suites, also refreshes feet with unique treatments, such as the Sunshine Bliss pedicure’s citrus-inspired products and hot towels warmed on the sun.
