Men's Treatments

Male grooming is no longer a luxury for the rich and famous but a necessity for all men. Modern men worldwide want to look fantastic at any age. Luckily there are now countless skin and body treatments available specifically for men.


At Beauty Essence, we cater for men too. After a few visits, we often find that men make our salon treatments a regular part of their grooming routine. A facial or waxing treatment may start as a treat, perhaps a gift from a loved one, but it doesn't take long before men make it a routine and want to learn more about the best products for their skin.



Our Most Popular Male Grooming Treatments

New to grooming?  Don’t worry, our City of London salon offers several treatments specifically tailored for our male clients.


1. Hair removal

Today hair removal for men or ‘manscaping’ as it is sometimes known, is considered not just practical but can transform your appearance.


Waxing is the quickest and easiest hair removal method for most men as it ensures a smooth, clean finish with less irritation than shaving. Plus, it also lasts much longer as it pulls the hair from the root.


Men’s waxing is ideal for body hair on the chest and back and perfect for smaller areas such as that monobrow. Perfectly groomed eyebrows can open up your eyes while keeping a classic masculine look. Removing straggly hairs and keeping a clear division between your two brows can also make you look younger.


If you are looking for a more permanent solution to unwanted hair removal, talk to us about our IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and Electrolysis treatments for men.


Why not book a hair removal consultation with one of our therapists? They can explain the process, answer any questions and recommend the best hair removal treatment for you.



2. Men’s Facials

Facials are suitable for both men and women and provide a range of skincare benefits. Men have entirely different skin to women; it's thicker, hairier, and produces more oil, so naturally, it requires a different skin care regimen. We can tailor a professional facial to meet all your skin concerns, from spots, oiliness, dryness, or perhaps smooth a few wrinkles or fine lines.


Facials can be the perfect tonic for irritated skin caused by shaving. They are also great pre-shave, smoothing the skin for a more effortless shave. Facials are also incredibly relaxing and make a positive difference to your complexion.


At Beauty Essence, we offer a wide range of professional facials especially designed to address men’s skin concerns.



3. Men’s Manicure, Pedicure, Gels, BIAB

Dirty, unkempt nails on hands and feet are unsightly and, perhaps more importantly are unhealthy. We ask a lot of our hands and feet daily, and it's essential to look after them.


But a manicure or pedicure is far more than just a beauty treatment that gives you clean, smart looking hands and feet. They also look after the health of your nails and cuticles. Regular manicures and pedicures give your nails a deep clean removing dead skin cells, encouraging new skin cell growth, thus keeping nails strong and healthy.


And if you’re off on holiday, why not consider a men’s gel pedicure to ensure you’re flip-flop-ready.

Our General Grooming Advice

  • For best results, always consult our treatment pages before your session. There, you will find many handy tips on preparing for a treatment, what to expect during the treatment, and aftercare advice.


  • Of course, you could always book a consultation appointment with us. One of our experienced therapists can advise you on the best treatment for your specific skin and hair type and explain any pre- and post-treatment guidance.


  • Establish a routine, and book future appointments before leaving the salon. Try and use correct products for your skin type. Men specific skincare ranges are designed for men, as you have different needs from women.


  • Always shave in the direction of hair growth to ensure a smooth, easy shave with less irritation and less risk of ingrown hairs and always use a pre-shave product and post-shave balm.


  • Moisturise every day and use a sun protection cream of at least SPF 30 to protect your skin.
