Keeping a beard in check or staying clean shaven takes work but not at these top-notch Perth establishments.
Gentlemen' Hair Lounge
Step into this plush sanctuary in Subiaco and you’ll feel as if you’ve entered a private men’s club – complete with leather chesterfields, countertops displaying cigars and complimentary whisky and scotch. Gentleman George packages combine a hair styling session with a head massage, peppermint hot-towel facial wrap and a traditional neck shave to boot. Got some greys? Ask about the discreet blending service using American Crew products.
Crown Spa Perth
The Crown Towers in Burswood are home to the city’s most opulent day spa. Treat tired feet with the La Prairie Deluxe Pedicure, which includes a foot soak, conditioning cuticle treatment and double exfoliation, hydrating foot mask and massage. Arrive early to spend some time the Aqua Retreat: the onsite complex with hot pool, steam room and Swiss showers.
In need of a top-to-toe tidy? Head to this temple of male grooming on Hay Street in the city. Every detail – from the offer of whisky, beer or coffee on arrival to the chrome-and-steel décor and ban on pop music – is designed to put men at ease. A packed menu of topnotch haircuts, waxing, hot-towel shaves, hand and feet “detailing”, facials and massages is on offer.
Como Shambhala Urban Escape
You’ll feel your stress ebbing away the moment you step into this stylish sanctuary of calm inside five-star hotel COMO The Treasury. Open every day, there’s a special treatment list with the needs of men in mind such as the Mankind Sodashi Facial: a deep cleansing and exfoliating facial that restores balance to the skin and assists in preventing ingrown hairs using natural plant extracts such as cedarwood, lime and cypress.
The traditional hot-towel shaves at this Northbridge barbershop start with a massage using divine-smelling Proraso cream and finish with a cool-towel compress and a splash of Turkish lemon cologne. It gets busy here – although with a pool table and beers in the fridge, hanging out pre-treatment is no hardship.
