The ancient Greek philosopher Hippocrates II once said that the way to health is to have an aromatic bath and a scented massage every day. It was based on this idea that the concept of visiting a spa was introduced. It’s believed that back in the olden days, spa visits were restricted to males, as the Romans sat and discussed business matters there. Over time, spas and beauty clinics began to offer services that catered more to women. Nowadays, the idea that men who get a facial are somehow more feminine has been debunked. In fact, there’s a growing number of spas and beauty treatments that are specially designed for men. Here are some of the more popular and exotic treatments available for all the guys out there!
Men’s Age Rebel Facial- Tailored to pamper, this popular 80-minute Age Rebel Facial prevents the signs of ageing in men such as wrinkles and fine lines. It also focuses on dark circles around the eyes while rejuvenating your skin. It begins with steaming and cleansing the face, after which an enzyme peel is applied. This is followed by a deep facial massage and ends with the application of a toning mask.
In terms of the benefits of this treatment, the enzyme peel enhances cell growth and removes dead skin cells. Meanwhile, one of the ingredients used in this effective facial, the antioxidant-rich sea funnel, helps protect against environmental damage. The black oat, golden seaweed, and velvet horn seaweed used during the procedure moisturises and maintains the skin’s hydration. Apart from these ingredients, two major elements used in this facial are acai and chitin. Chitin acts as a removal agent for dead skin cells, while acai is an essential boosting agent for skin vitality, as it contains powerful antioxidants. The Men’s Age Rebel Facial, at a whopping $235, is offered at the Acqualina Resort & Spain Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The facility has a 20,000-square-foot luxury spa, and is ranked number one in America.
Diamond Rose Manicure and Pedicure. Another famous and glamorous service offered at the world renowned Beverly Wilshire is the Diamond Rose manicure and pedicure. This luxurious treatment uses exfoliating agents such as diamond dust and rose mosqueta oil, which are known to purify and illuminate your skin. The rose used in this special manicure and pedicure possesses an intoxicating scent, as it is harvested in the hilly regions of Morocco.
The Diamond Rose Manicure and Pedicure provides wonderful relaxing and rejuvenating benefits. The ingredients used include diamond experience neuro-aroma lavender, body creme, magnetic scrub, and rose mosqueta oil. During this service, your feet, lower legs, hands and fingers are gently massaged with a diamond magnetic scrub. Then the rose mosqueta oil is applied to your feet and cuticles and, finally, it ends with a gentle body creme massage. This signature manicure and pedicure comes with a price tag of around $175.
To experience the ultimate relaxation, you must try out the La Prairie signature facials for men. One of the high-end skincare brands, La Prairie dates back to when the popular La Prairie Clinic in Montreux, Switzerland was established. Apart from introducing two luxurious skincare lines – the Caviar collection and Swiss Cellular De-Agers, the brand is known for their magnificent spas that offer top notch services. The moment you step in to one of their spas, you’re transported to a whole new world.
Their Gentlemen’s Facial is one of the best treatments available for men. This costly cleansing and purifying facial is designed to address the unique skin care needs of men.

Invisible Haircut by Rossano Ferretti
Ever heard of a haircut that’s worth $1,500? It certainly seems a bit implausible, but that’s what you can expect to pay for a haircut from the renowned hairdresser Rossano Ferretti, who some regard as the most luxurious hairdresser in the world. The ‘invisible haircut’, also known as the method cut by Rossano, is quite famous, especially among elites and celebrities. This haircut lets your hair fall freely with natural movement. It is neither a layered nor a chop cut; rather it follows the natural pattern of your hair. The idea is pretty simple: instead of cutting your hair strands horizontally, the haircut is done at an angle and always in the direction in which your hair flows.
This particular cut stresses the importance of enhancing one’s approach towards beauty by keeping it minimalistic. Rossano Ferretti has salons all over the world, and his clientele includes celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Middleton, Angelina Jolie, Giorgio Armani, and many others. A wide range of extravagant services for both men and women are offered at various Rossano Spas around the world.
