The Modern Man’s Guide to Grooming: Why Male Pedicures and Manicures Matter

<?xml encoding=”utf-8″ ?????????>

We’ve been accustomed to hearing that men are simple creatures, with bare minimum needs. Give them good food, a sense of purpose, and the right type of company, and they will never complain. But in present times, we need to buck this narrative.

In today’s uber competitive world, men need to be on their toes all the time. They have to perform at work, take care of their kin, and look the part to make an impression on their partner and at work.

Today, the need for men’s grooming is just as important as is for the opposite sex. In this article, we will explore a key component of men’s grooming ritual – pedicure and manicure.

Male & Female Pedicures/Manicures Explained

Does a male pedicure differ from a female’s? Fundamentally speaking, no. The same goes for a manicure procedure. It’s proven scientifically that beyond your face, your hands and feet draw the most attention. A good grooming session at a men’s salon will make your hands and nails look their best. Although there are many variations on men’s manicures, most of them include hand massages, cleaning and buffing of the nails, cuticle care, and moisturizing of the hands and nails.

Similarly, a pedicure session will yield transformative results in how you look with a gentle foot soak, relaxing exfoliation, nail clipping, and buffing. Now that we know a bit about the two procedures, let’s dive deeper into understanding their application and benefits.

What Happens During a Manicure and Pedicure Session?

Starts off with the Feet

Usually, the expert will start from your feet. You’ll be sitting on a reclining chair, and your feet will be soaked in warm water. The beautician will ask you to close your eyes, and probably put on some soothing music. This will mark the beginning of your blissful journey of 40–45 minutes. Soon after, he or she will use a specialized stone to remove calluses, clip and file your nails.

Time for the Hands now

Your technician will inquire about the shape and how long you’d like to have your desired nail design last. It’s important to remember to talk about your options, which often include “rounded,” “square,” or “square with rounded edges.” But there are also other, more daring choices, like “lipstick” and “stiletto.” styles

After cutting and clipping your nails, the technician soaks your hands in warm water. Your hands and forearms are then massaged and hydrated.

You also have the choice to select add-ons for a more comprehensive pampering session. For example, you can add a hydra facial, a spa service or even a luxurious Moroccan bath. Any premier spa in Dubai offers these services; at an additional cost, of course. Our picks are Jazz Lounge Spa – they offer the best Moroccan bath in Dubai hands down, Ritual Luxe Spa – their Swedish massage is ethereal, and lastly, SnB Aesthetic Clinic – their Hydra facial is unrivaled.

Benefits of Manicure and Pedicure

A More Refined Presence

Your trusty nail clippers are wonderful, but they cannot match a manicurist or nail technician who has been trained to do everything precisely. Consider this: smooth, accurately formed nails of uniform length, with no rough edges visible, are simply superior to what you’d do on your own. It’s a minor transformation, but it will make you feel sleeker in the office, at a job interview, and on your next date night.

A Healthier Overall Appearance

A regular manicure with normal polish and a pedicure will help sustain the health and strength of your nails. Clipping can help prevent ingrown nails or hangnails, while the moisturizing and exfoliating hydrates your skin and removes dead skin cells, resulting in softer, brighter hands and feet. The expert also gently rubs your hands and feet, which results in improved blood circulation. Besides, men who get pedicures frequently like having their calluses removed, have an easier time with physical activity for longer periods of time.

Conclusion

It’s about time we acknowledge that personal grooming and self-love are central tenets to elevating a man’s personality. Besides shaving and hair cutting, males should swing by a salon at least twice a month to take up aesthetic treatments that include manicure and pedicure, a hydrating facial, and possibly, a spa service. Remember, folks, the way you look shapes other people’s opinion of you.
