What is a Manicure For Men?

A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands. The term “manicure” originated from the French word “manucure”, which means “hand work”. It is a common misconception that manicures are only for women. Men are also getting manicures, but we call them “MAN-icures”. Men’s manicures are a new trend in beauty. They have been around since 2010 when male celebrities started getting them as an alternative to nail polish. A typical manicure includes shaping and trimming the nails, cleaning and exfoliating the skin and removing calluses.

Why Should Men Get Manicures?

A first impression always starts with the way you look – whether it’s on a date, at an interview or when meeting new people. So never underestimate the impact that a good haircut or new outfit can have – it is often those small things that count. You should always make sure to keep up your grooming in order and that includes taking care of your hands and nails.

It’s easy for humans to neglect hand care – ultimately causing your hands to dry out or your nails to pick up dirt & grime. Manicures help keep your nails clean, well-groomed and looking their best, ready for that next handshake. Aside from improving the appearance of your hands and nails, manicures also help prevent medical conditions such as fungal infections. The nail protects the finger’s surface from outside germs and dirt so it’s important to take proper care of them. A professional men’s manicure also removes dead skin cells from under your nail beds which helps keep them healthy. That being said, nail care doesn’t need to be time-consuming and we’re here to make it easy for you to incorporate nail maintenance into your grooming routine during your barbershop visits. No need to go out of your way for a visit to your local nail salon, we’re your one-stop shop for everything men’s grooming!
