Deal Days Gets Manly
The men’s grooming market isn’t just razors and shaving cream anymore. It’s clear that as men are becoming more and more attentive to personal care, the market for men’s health and beauty is growing. In fact, purchases of premium-priced ($70 and above) men’s skin-care face products increased by 8 percent in the first half of 2009 compared with the same period in 2008, according to the NPD Group, a market research firm.
Men want in on spa treatments and the spa and wellness industries have taken note. Not only are more and more spas highlighting the fact that they offer services for both women and men, but they’re filling the gap by addressing men’s grooming and wellness needs specifically with special treatments exclusively for men.
Even Deal Days is getting in on the action this Sept. 20-26 with offerings ranging from a deluxe mani/pedi for men to a special package that pays attention to men’s relaxation needs. Here are a few of the participating spas and wellness centers:
