A Brief Guide to What Men Need to Know About Manicure & Pedicure Services, Manhattan, New York

Whether making introductions with a stranger or wearing sandals on the beach, the condition of hands and feet matter, as chipped, dirty, or discolored fingernails and toenails can leave a bad first impression. Although women are commonly known to get manicure and pedicure treatments, many men are also booking the service to improve their appearance and self-confidence. To better prepare, below is a brief guide to what men should know before heading to the spa for a manicure and pedicure.  

What Men Should Know About Manicure & Pedicure Treatments 

1. Wear Loose Clothing

Although many men like the look of close-fit, contemporary clothing, wear baggy attire when you go for a manicure and pedicure. During a manicure, the technicians will ask you to roll up sleeves, so they won’t get products on your clothes. Depending on the treatment, some manicurists might need to access your arm to the elbow to apply moisturizer as part of a massage. When getting a pedicure, it’s best to wear shorts or pants that roll up. This will make you much more comfortable in the chair, as there’s a small whirlpool at the bottom where feet soak to soften cuticles. 

2. Be Mindful of Those Around You

When visiting a men’s spa, it’s important to be mindful of those around you. Often, manicure tables and pedicure chairs are in close proximity to one another. To avoid disrupting everyone else, make sure to speak in hushed, quiet tones and keep the phone calls brief. 

3. Keep Hands & Feet Moisturized

Dehydration can wreak havoc on hands and feet, leaving nails cracked and cuticles damaged. To protect the nail bed and matrix after the manicure and pedicure, remember to moisturize hands and feet when you wake up in the morning and before going to sleep at night. Using a foot buffer in the shower will also prevent rough patches and callouses from returning.
