It is commonly perceived that pampering is only for the female counter part and with the ladies in the limelight right now at Milan’s Fashion Week soaking up the glamour, what a great opportunity for the beaus amongst us to take advantage of a little ‘manpering’ too.
I’d imagine for the most part that during the winter months a lot of us neglect ourselves in a bid to hibernate until the summer returns again. However sometimes we need a little energizer to help us not only look good and but feel good too. Across the historical streets of Milan you can find not just stylists but artists who will pay close attention to your hair and beard in an environment where you are able to relax and experience 5 star service.
