SMOOTH OP­ER­A­TORS

A hot towel at the bar­ber’s or a cou­ple’s mas­sage on hol­i­day used to be the clos­est men got to a skin or spa treat­ment. Not any­more. About Face’s About Man clinic in Auck­land in­cludes a gen­tle­man’s lounge to unwind with a whisky or beer be­fore tak­ing up treat­ments rang­ing from an express cleanse, scrub, and mask to ad­vanced op­tions to treat age­ing, acne scar­ring, and sun dam­age.

Forme Spa prom­ises some rock and roll in its new Men’s Work service menu, but the hot stone (rock) and bam­boo (roll) mas­sages aren’t mu­sic re­lated: they are a high­light of the body treat­ments, along­side a ded­i­cated Ba­cial (back fa­cial). Deep cleans­ing fa­cials, wax­ing, and tan­ning are also on the list at each of Forme’s spas na­tion­wide.

Bark­ers are also in­ter­ested in a head-to-toe so­lu­tion to look­ing sharp. Get suited and booted and then top off the look with a fresh shave, beard trim, and hair­cut, thanks to the ar­rival of Groom Rooms (left) in se­lected stores.
