Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.

There's nothing manlier than a well-groomed physique. That's the view espoused by ManXScape Body Shop, which pampers clients in a guy-friendly sports-bar-inspired atmosphere. Beer signs and diamond-plate metal bedeck the walls, providing a rugged contrast to trays of nail files and footbaths that appear beside leather pedicure thrones. The temporary kings seated there are tended to by a team of aestheticians and nail technicians specially trained to meet males' skincare, waxing, and nail-grooming needs. The onsite bar, meanwhile, serves heady pours of draft beer, fostering friendly conversations about the strangely appropriate spelling of the word manicure.
