Stuck for something to give that special man in your life this Father’s Day? Well, have I got the solution for you if you have a Perth dad!
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Guys Grooming in the city. My experience included a facial and haircut, hair is one thing I have plenty of but something new to me was the facial.
With the appointment booked after work one afternoon I was greeted at the front desk by Rochelle who instantly made me feel welcomed. Rochelle showed me to a locker to leave my jacket in and from there I was lead to the lounge to wait for my stylist/therapist.
A real “Perth dad” place to relax
The lounge is a real Man Space, leather arm chairs, magazines, newspapers and a TV with Fox Sports on most of the time.
A nice touch is that they leave the remote on the table, so you can change to watch whatever you wish, so I took them up on the offer and put the cricket on (this was just before it went all wrong for the Aussies).
While in the lounge I was offered a complimentary drink. They have everything from coffee, juice, soft drinks and even beer. As it was the end of the day for me guess what beverage of choice I chose? Yep, a nice cold refreshing beer.
It wasn’t long before my beauty therapist came into the lounge and introduced herself leading me to one of the private rooms for my facial. Now, this is the first facial that I’ve ever had, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The room was set for relaxation, dim lighting and soft music playing. Explained to me was the process, which to my surprise was more than just some product on my face and a bit of scrubbing.
The facial took an hour and included a bit of a clean-up of my eye brows (my first waxing experience and I gotta say I don’t know how you gals do it!), a neck and shoulder massage, facial treatment and masque. While the masque was doing its thing, I had a hand and arm massage.
The whole experience was very relaxing and a welcomed end to my working day. I was pleasantly surprised at just how much I enjoyed it. I’ve been to Guys Grooming before, but never really thought about getting anything other than a haircut. After this experience I’m now more than likely to go back for another facial, and maybe a massage too!
A quick consult followed the facial where I was shown a couple of products that I might like to use at home. A few sample products were also left for me back at the front desk to take home. There also wasn’t pressure to buy products, which I liked.
I was then taken back to the lounge where my beer was replaced (it had gone warm while I was relaxing!) where once again I relaxed waiting only a very short time for my next appointment, my haircut.
Ushered to the grooming and cutting section (this place is huge!) to start my “cut” I have to say I’ve had plenty of haircuts at barbers where the whole mentality is get them in, cut the hair, get them out. This definitely IS not the case at Guys Grooming.
A hair cut appointment is a full service – Cut, Wash & Style. Nice little touches like TVs playing music videos next to every chair, massage chairs at the hair washing basins and a hot towel to clean your face at the end. I never felt like I was being rushed out the door as is sometimes the case at the local shopping centre barber.
