Pretty in the City - Pretty Boys Need Love Too
After reading about that prostitution spa scandal, it’s more than understandable why some Miami wives and girlfriends might raise an eyebrow if their fella expresses an interest in going to the spa. We’ll have you know, not every guy who makes an appointment for a treatment is looking for a happy ending -- manscaping is a huge trend in the spa biz these days. And spas are increasingly catering to dudes by offering facials, Vichy baths, waxing packages, and um -- “men-n-cures.”
At the Men-n-Cure Salon & Spa For Men in Coral Gables, they cater to you, and not in the creepy, slightly-sad way that Destiny’s Child song recommends. Guys get lured in with big screen TVs (playing ESPN, no doubt), free Wi-FI, and car detailing services while you wait. You can chillax with a complimentary beverage (beer, wine, soda or bottled water) and a snack before getting a shave and a haircut, a hand or foot treatment, chair massage, facial or back facial (because nobody wants backne on the beach, right?).
Men-n-Cure specializes in waxing, and their hottest service these days are eyebrow shaping (we recommend you go subtle and just clean up the unibrow), ear waxing, and nose waxing. Dude, if I can do it -- you can too. And you probably need it more than I do. Oh, and they offer Botox and Restalyne -- because your wife doesn’t have to be the only one with a wrinkle-free face. And Mark Spitz is all about it these days, if that counts for anything.
If you’re too sketched-out to stop by solo, you can bring your wifey with you -- every Wednesday is Ladies' Night and "Partner's Pedicures" Day, when a gentleman can invite a lady friend for foot and hand detail in side-by-side ped spas. Kinda cute, no?
The Men-n-Cure Salon & Spa For Men is at 208 Andalusia Avenue, Coral Gables. Call 305-460-9993 for an appointment.
