Male Vanity On the Rise
It’s been long understood that a gift certificate to a woman’s favorite salon or spa makes a terrific birthday or Christmas present. But how about a salon gift certificate for your guy. According to a survey reported by the Riverside (CA) Press-Enterprise more and more men–especially younger guys– are heading to the salon for a little enhanced primping. What services are the most popular?
72 percent of females and 52 percent of men using professional care services. Surveys show that 25 percent of males 18-34 report having a manicure or pedicure. Meanwhile, 38 percent of men age 18-34 have had a facial or body treatment, compared to only 15 percent of men age 55 and older.
I must say that, so far, I haven’t availed myself of such services. However I never say never so, ladies, if we end up seated next to each other having our nails done promise me you won’t tell the guys down at the corner bar.
