Sometimes we need to de-stress and recharge our batteries with a little pampering. Enjoying some ‘me time’ is essential for our mental health and happiness. It is not necessary to do a full day of pampering. Even just a simple haircut in a barber shop, a special facial treatment or some nails done are enough to help you feel good about yourself.
There are so many places in Bali offering some treatments for yourselves. In Seminyak, Blow Bar is not just a typical old-fashioned hair salon but also an alternative bar to hang out. There are no cuts, colours or chemical treatments here, totally different from a normal hair salon you’ve ever visited. The focus here is not just on creative hair but more to a total social experience.
At Blow Bar, you can sit while your personal bartender blends you the perfect cocktail. As you do that, ask their professional stylist to whip you up a glam look. You can ask for an up style, trending braid, high pony, stick straight, beachy waves, voluminous curls or any other styles to get you ready for any occasion.
Still in Seminyak, Men can also have a place to groom before the party started. Bali Barber offers a new level of barbering for gents. Not just limited to scissor haircuts, clipper fades, hot towel shaves and beard trims, they also come with spa services such as massage, waxing, skin treatments, spray tanning, and other aesthetic needs. For you guys in need of some hair colouring, you will be by taken care of by certified Senior Colourists using only high-quality imported products.
Now, how about some face treatments? In Canggu, a 60-minute of The VITAMAN De-Stress Face treatment at Glo Spa combines effective, masculine products to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin, while VITAMAN’s unique male-specific massage technique releases the stress from your shoulders, neck and jaw areas. After the massage, your face will be treated well with protective and restorative extracts such as Australian lemon myrtle, blue cypress oil, Kakadu palm and wild rosella flower. This treatment suits men of all ages and all skin types.
Around the neighbourhood, dedicated to ladies, GOLDUST stands apart from other spas in Bali with its unique 24K Gold Facial. Many of you will ask how gold benefits our skin? When applied to the face, gold leaf naturally rejuvenates skin and reduce wrinkles, locks in moisture and keeps skin firm by maintaining collagen in the skin and inhibiting the breakdown of elastin.
At GOLDUST, the facial treatment starts with a deep cleansing followed by the application of thin sheets of 24K gold. Wait for the gold leaf to work its magic in tightening and smoothing your skin before you can immediately see the results of your skin feeling softer and looking much more radiant.

From the face, we are moving on to the nails. Most people would ask, “Do men need manicures and pedicures?” Well, see it this way. Imagine you see a man walking around you with some grimy nails and crusty cuticles. People judge by how you present yourself, including your nails. And don’t think people in business meetings aren’t looking at your hands.
Just like women, men also need to look after for themselves. Generally, guys tend to do dirty activities that make stuff stick under their nails. And, since you are living on the island, you don’t want to be seen in flip-flops with long and thick toenails. However, it takes huge effort and confidence for a man to sit in a nail salon for a professional manicure. Apart from that, it is difficult to find a nail salon especially for men on this island.
You can ask a female friend for some recommendations. The chances are they will tell you the salons they normally go to for nail treatments. There is indeed no stand-alone male salon in Bali dedicated only to handling nails. They come as additional services, like in Bali Barber Seminyak or Fresh Spa Ubud. For ladies, on the other hand, it is easier to find a decent place to get your nails done. A place like The Shampoo Lounge will give a ‘WOW’ result to your nails.
