An exclusive male lounge Grooming experience - Urban Male Lounge, The Galleria, Abu Dhabi
The most surreal experience follows next when she uses paraffin wax to moisturise my hands and feet. My hands and feet are put in plastic bags containing melted paraffin wax. As it cools down, it forms a type of gel around my hands and feet. Then, she puts my hands and feet in glove and sock-like bags which are heated, ensuring the wax remains a bit soggy, therefore moisturising the skin. Highly recommended!
To end off my afternoon, I have a trim in the hair salon, a 20 step walk from my treatment room. Branded hair products like Keratin and Redken line the wall, able to match any comparable salon in the city. Before I know it, two hours have passed, and with a dinner appointment in the offing, I thank the staff who have shown me the value of good old-fashioned people skills.
Urban Male Lounge fills a void in the market as there is a dearth of male salons catering for men with the level of service and products that are offered here. All in all, my treatment cost just under 400AED,a bargain in the Abu Dhabi context.
Urban Male Lounge has come up with clever packages which will appeal to those who enjoy a visit to these type of centres fairly regularly. Very good value indeed! Men may have found a new place to hang out before hitting the clubs and restaurants.
