Male grooming is a concept that is no longer reserved for the metro-sexual man – more men want to look good without having to feel out of their comfort zone.  Male grooming establishments are stepping away from just adding a list of male treatments onto a pre-existing all-female treatment offering and designing very niche concepts that cater to men and they can actually enjoy.  These are some of the coolest grooming spots to try:

BAR BER BLACK SHEEP 

A barber shop and bar; this is gem on Rosebank’s hotspot Bolton Road that is perfect for a quick beard trim, an after work drink or both.  With its old-school leather finishes, modern monochromatic décor and artisanal gin cocktails -  it’s the perfect mix of tradition and millennial appeal for all men. 011 037 3660

GLASSHOUSE: REJUVENATION FOR MEN

A place where you can get groomed up and still catch your favourite sports? That’s sounds like a plan any man would be up for.  Glasshouse Rejuvenation is one of Cape Town’s top grooming spots and has a mixture of an old-school barber and modern swanky cocktail lounge interiors. Glasshouse offers facials, massages, waxing even botox fillers in the comfort of a “male-only” sanctuary.
