Everyone deserves a personal day every now and again. Women treat themselves to spa days and mani-pedi dates with their girlfriends all the time, it is about time men be given the same privileges. Proving that there is no shame in a man walking into a salon to request a manicure, Hammer & Hails is a nail salon that only pampers men.
The owner of Hammer & Nails, Michael Elliot, wants this place to become a man-cave where men can let loose and leave their problems at the door. Opening in LA next month, the salon is furnished with oversized leather sofas and personal TVs with headphones, complete with a selection of popular sports channels. Complimentary beverages will also be offered – Elliot is looking to offer free beer and scotch as soon as he obtains his liquor license.
Hammer & Nails has an extensive menu of nail treatments that ranges from traditional cuticle care to nail polish applications, which according to Elliot has been gaining popularity among males. Elliot believes his mens-only salon will be a huge success and has intentions of opening another if all goes well. This salon might just open up a market that has yet to be explored.
