The days when women looked at men’s shoes or clothing to find out how clean they were are long gone. Today women want to see a man who is well groomed and put together. Men who take pride in their appearance may also take pride in their attention to the woman in their life. Women aren’t just interested in how the man looks but also in judging his likelihood to be interested in caring for himself and her as time passes by.
To a woman, a man who doesn’t care for his appearance may be equated with the man who enjoys spending entire weekends slouched on the couch watching the game while the woman in his life spends her time taking care of the house, children and her own work. Now this might not be a fair equation but then neither is the equation of hair color and intelligence.
Furthermore, a visit to a cosmetologist is no longer treated as just a woman’s domain. The appearance of a well dressed man in a beauty salon is not a surprise.
Male manicures are different from ones done for women, especially the lack of polish and paint. Most men appreciate the natural look of their nails and the lack of smell from products usually used with women.
Most men dont have a great understanding of the need to keep their cuticles in good condition and why this is important. They also dont understand that cuticles shouldn’t be cut. Cuticles actually have a purpose!
Cuticles are dead cells that lay over the base of the nail bed and protect the body from entrance of bacteria from the exterior environment into the body through the nail bed. Without good care the dead cells are pushed down the nail and can be damaged, which also makes this area more vulnerable to infection.
Men can care for the cuticles at home by using a good moisturizer at least twice a day and rubbing the moisturizer into the cuticles at least 2 times a week. Preventing the area from becoming dry will prevent hang nails and from the cuticle from becoming damaged.
Some cosmetologist continue to cut the cuticle but men should ask to have their cuticles massaged with oil and rubbed gently to remove the excess cells.
A male manicure will consist of cuticle care, a trim, shaping and sometimes a colorless varnish cover coat. Some guys just don’t like the idea of a clear coat of varnish to protect the nails so a quick buff will give the nails that just cared for look without adding a product to the nail itself. But be careful! Buff too long and the nails will look polished and it doesn’t come off with polish remover.
A male manicure is also less expensive than one given to women. While a women’s manicure may run between $15 and $35 depending upon how much is done a male manicure may cost between $5.00 and $20.00 again depending upon how much the gentleman wants done to his hands.
