We previously talked about the best places to get a mani and a pedi in London’s best hotels, but what about male grooming?
The practice has become much more popular in recent years and it’s now perfectly normal for a man to spend time and money on his appearance. The Corinthia is making sure that male beauty isn’t forgotten about with their new packages at ESPA Life, their hotel spa.
A choice of two packages is available: “Gentleman’s Topiary” and “Whiskey and a Wet Shave”. The former whips men into shape from head to toe, and includes a men’s precision cut, a traditional wet shave and an essential manicure and pedicure. Body hair is taken care of too, with chest or back waxing (ouch!) and an IPL consultation included in the package. Men can also relax with a facial and full use of the thermal floor.
If you don’t want to get quite so intimate, the “Whiskey and a Wet Shave” package consists of a wet shave, eyebrow shaping, a manicure, a glass or two of whiskey and use of the Movie Make Over Room.
What is a Movie Make Over Room? It’s a private room at Hair by Daniel Galvin with imitation daytime lighting, a database of films and an iPad with WiFi and Skype. So you could watch a movie, admire your new look or show off your transformation to your friends.
For less hirsute men, or perhaps men who would rather keep their personal grooming a bit more personal, the spa also offers a couple of other spa packages exclusively for the male of the species.
You could relax with “A Gentleman’s Indulgence”, which includes a massage, facial and mani or pedi. Or if you’ve had a big night out, the “Men’s Revitaliser” could be just the thing to perk you up. A deep muscle massage will soothe those aches and pains, while a Reviver Facial and a light lunch will have you feeling like yourself again.
Just because you’re manly, it doesn’t mean you can’t take care of yourself. Everyone needs a little grooming and relaxation, so why not indulge?
