While it may no longer be the era of the metrosexual, with the trend for girly men slowly subsiding and rough ‘n’ ready very much back in, the remnants of male vanity remains in the form of dedicated man spas across the globe. Case in point is Hommage, which has a number of men-only outposts around the world. Its latest offering is a spa in New York by Julien Farel, hairstylist-to-the-stars and all-round God when it comes to grooming and looking good. The spa is a masculine space in which celebrity fans such as Huge Jackman and Daniel Craig can rest, relax and rejuvenate.
Discerning gents are welcomed through the doors with a single-malt scotch, complimentary shoe-buffing and freebie jacket steaming; away from the busy Manhattan streets below, they can choose between treatments on an extensive menu with each tailored specifically towards individuals.
Highly recommended is the Essential Shave, which comes with an accompanying facial and hand massage that targets the aching associated with the overuse of BlackBerries.
