Encouraging Men’s Self-Care That Often Gets Forgotten

Self Care for Men

The importance of self-care for women is emphasized far and wide; however, for men, far less attention has been paid traditionally, even though they benefit just as much. From stress reduction to improved mental and physical health, self-care isn’t a feminine luxury; it’s a must for everyone, regardless of gender. While some of the more common self-care options in general include exercising, making time for hobbies, meditation, and getting more sleep, one area for men that has taken off is grooming. Here’s why it’s so important.

Self-Care Defined

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines self-care as promoting and maintaining health, preventing disease, and coping with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider. At the same time, the organization notes that self-care is a broad term that encompasses many facets of a person’s life, including:

  • Hygiene 
  • Nutrition
  • Lifestyle factors such as exercise and leisure activities
  • Environmental factors such as living conditions or social habits
  • Socioeconomic factors such as income level or cultural beliefs
  • Following treatment plans for current illnesses

While this may sound elaborate, at its core, self-care is simply taking action in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your life to promote health and wellness.

The Benefits of Male Grooming

Grooming is an essential part of self-care that men are starting to prioritize. In fact, CNN reports that the global male grooming market is projected to reach $115 billion by 2028, up from nearly $80 billion in 2022. In 2021, the market was estimated to be worth $74.8 billion.

Men’s attitudes toward grooming recently changed across all age demographics, with over 50% either having a daily skincare routine or feeling skincare and grooming are very important, according to a 2022 Ipsos study. They also have more options at their disposal, like the nation’s first BarberSpa™, Hammer & Nails Grooming Shop for Guys.

As such, it’s much easier to reap the benefits of male grooming, like the following:

  • Better hygiene
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Prevention of skin conditions
  • Opportunity for self-expression 
  • Better first impressions, personally and professionally

The BarberSpa™ Experience

BarberSpa for men

The BarberSpa experience is best described as a fusion of sophistication, relaxation, and indulgence that resonates deeply with the modern man. Hammer & Nails is a pioneer in this realm, offering an array of luxury grooming services and membership offerings across its 29 locations throughout Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Oregon, and California.

CEO Aaron Meyers says, “The modern man is craving a place that is just for them. A place that treats them with respect and helps them look and feel their best. They are tired of impersonal take-a-number chop shops. Hammer & Nails addresses this underserved market by offering flexible, budget-friendly membership options while delivering a luxury experience.”

Grooming services include premium haircuts, straight-razor shaves, manicures, pedicures, face treatments, and waxing. Hammer & Nails guests enjoy sinking into comfortable oversized leather chairs while wearing noise-canceling headphones and watching the big game with their favorite drink.
