At 18|8 Financial District, we’ve been helping the high-performers of downtown NYC look, feel, and perform their best for years. During that time, we’ve learned a lot about what it takes to stay at the top of your game, both in terms of style and daily life. Unfortunately, there are a few biases that keep most guys from truly looking and feeling their best, and one of the biggest is about manicures. So as your financial district barber, we’re here to dispel this pesky myth once and for all.Real men get mani-cures.

Yes, Manicures Are for Men

Guys, we get it: most of us have grown up indoctrinated with the stereotype that manicures and pedicures are only for women. Popular media constantly reinforces this stereotype, and most men have no experience with getting a manicure or a pedicure. It feels weird, and maybe a little scary.

But here’s the thing: looking your best requires more than just a good haircut. To truly perfect your style, you need to look great from head to toe. And that includes your hands, plain and simple. Nothing on earth will have your fingernails and hands looking as clean and well-kempt as a quality manicure treatment, which means that if you truly want to look your best, a manicure is the only way to do it. It’s that simple.

So the next time you notice your hands starting to look like those of a silverback gorilla, don’t ignore it: schedule an appointment for one of our Man-icure grooming treatments. You’ll get a 30-minute hand treatment that includes cleaning up your cuticles, exfoliating away dead and dying skin, and providing a deep-nourishing hand mask to leave your skin radiant and your hands in tip-top shape. Combine it with one of our men’s haircuts or other grooming services, and nothing in the world can stop you.
