It’s not often that we wish we were hairier, ha ha but after taking in the brand new luxe two black and chrome barber chairs nestled in the posh –The Art of Shaving Barber Spa at Bloomingdale’s flagship 59th Street branch…we wouldn’t have minded sportin’ a few whiskers.

A very happy customer was loving The Four Elements of The Perfect Shave®--a relaxing aromatherapy based treatment of “Prepare…Lather Up!...Shave…and Moisturize…” complete with hot towel and soothing skin lotions.

Well, we could not indulge but we could admire the handsome 400 square ft space on the main floor that captures the sleek elegance of the men’s shop--- with contemporary black lacquered furniture. And naturally... the complete line of The Art of Shaving natural skincare, hair care, body care and fragrances is available for sale.

Also making a favorable impact on men’s faces is the new After-Shave Mask® a Purifying Rose Clay and essential oils' composed- 3 minute mask that deep cleanses the pores while it soothes and regenerates the skin.



Available in a package of eight handy vials…the rosy hued clay absorbs the toxins and impurities from the skin…leaving behind a bright matte complexion. ($50).

We actually tried one for ourselves though technically speaking, this is a men's product. But hey, our skin felt terrific afterwards...with NO itchiness- which is what we usually get after we use scented products.
