At The Man Spa, the staff of high-trained stylists brings a touch of class and fashion acumen to the chair during grooming services tailored solely to gentlemen. Doling out exquisite haircuts, facials, and massages in a fun and relaxed environment, the female stylists primp and prim men with luxurious treatments designed to help men look and feel at the top of their game. Hot towel shaves and sports mani-pedis round out the treatments in this lavish club atmosphere.
Expansive, sunny windows illuminate the deep-red walls framing Mid City Salon’s elegant space, where trained aestheticians groom keratin-based parts with a range of treatments. Stylists revamp hair with trimming and chemical services that alter color and texture without attempting high-risk crayon implantation. Manicurists, meanwhile, outfit natural and acrylic nails in decorative swipes of polish, creating long-lasting style with CND Shellac applications or trendy designs such as cheetah print and flowers. Aestheticians can also rework façades with a quick brow and lip wax or a flawless makeup application. For offsite pampering, stylists arrive at homes during salon birthday parties to give girls aged 3 and older a chic updo, a smattering of glitter makeup, and polished nails that make them feel like adults without memorizing tax-return terminology.
