One of the most requested services from male clientele is a good manicure and pedicure. There is nothing girlie or shameful about it. In fact, it is very pleasant to shake the hand of a man with groomed hands or to look at a pair of feet in flip flops that don’t look like Bilbo Baggins just hiked the Mountains of Mordor.
Here are some FAQs to help you through the Shays Lounge man-pedi experience:
Why do I need a manicure or pedicure?
It is not pleasant to shake a dry, calloused hand with unsightly nails. This goes for feet, too. Nothing can turn a stomach more than picked or dirty toenails with desert dry heels.
I don’t want my nails to look like my sister’s!
Most likely, unless you request otherwise, your nails will be trimmed and filed into a square shape. We won’t polish (unless requested) but we do like to add a little shine with a buffer.
My nails are dry as stone. Can you help them?
Yes, we will feed your cuticles and the skin around them with an oil that is massaged in.
Can you cut my cuticles?
We do NOT CUT THE CUTICLES. Instead we gently massage moisturizing oil into them.
