There’s no question, we lads have it good. While our female counterparts are spending hours at the beauty salon getting primped and preened, we can get away with a quick haircut, shave, and a slick of aftershave within an hour. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t like to look our best and most men will probably admit that they enjoy a good pamper session every now and then. Which is why we’re pretty excited to introduce you to this new Cape Town spot where guys can park off and get all their grooming needs sorted in one convenient place. But, don’t let the name fool you gents, Cape Town Beauty Bar isn’t just for the ladies – here’s why this no-fuss, no-frills gents grooming spot is well worth a visit for even the manliest of men.
After a successful launch with a wide range of treatments for the fairer sex last year, the full-service grooming spot has recently extended their services to cater for men’s grooming needs as well. With everything from haircuts and hot towel shaves to facials, manicures, and pedicures, Cape Town Beauty Bar is every Cape Town guy’s answer to ultimate convenience. Centrally located in Cape Town’s CBD, the salon is always just a quick Uber away for guys looking to fit in a lunch-time haircut or an afterwork hot towel shave.
The MenStuff team paid a visit to the spot for a shave and a haircut recently and after an hour spent getting well groomed, it’s clear that the ladies have been holding out on us! Visiting Cape Town Beauty Bar is so much more than just a quick pop-in and out it’s a place to let your hair down (so to speak), put your feet up, and take a moment for yourself. Even if it’s just a quick hot towel shave or a haircut you’ll leave this joint feeling like a new man. Don’t believe us? Take a look at this before and after of our MenStuff Editor, Jeremy – not too shabby.
OK, but what about all this business about facials and manicures and pedicures? Well, they’re not just for the ladies either. More and more men are taking a seat behind the manicure table and word on the street is, it’s got nothing to do with being metrosexual. It turns out getting regular manicures and pedicures can help with overall hand and foot health and can even help release stress. As for the facials, according to experts, guys need facials more than women do due to factors like skin damage from your shave routine, sun damage and the fact that men have coarser skin and larger pores.
