3. Best Facial Grooming

We Need A Hero
Complete Shave, $65 for 45 minutes

Inspired by traditional barber shops, this all-in-one service has all the works. First a hot towel compress softens facial skin to prep it for a clean shave before a facial scrub is applied to loosen dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hair. Next, a relaxing facial massage stimulates circulation before a cool towel leaves your man feeling completely refreshed. Be warned, he will be back for more.

4. Best Deep-Cleansing Facial

Willow Stream Spa
Gentlemen Detox Facial, 60 minutes

Sebum production is higher in men’s skin as compared to women’s, making them more susceptible to clogged pores. So why not treat your man to an urban getaway at the sprawling Willow Stream Spa? Featuring a spa-grade peel and a purifying mask, cell renewal is boosted, while accumulated gunk is purged for a clearer, fresher complexion.
