Because men, too, deserved to be pampered, a men-only nail salon called ‘The Man Cave’ has opened in Spartanburg.
“I came up with the idea after doing my fiancé’s feet. He enjoyed getting pedicures and massages and he suggested that I go to nail school. I enrolled and realized that I really liked doing feet,” owner Shana Soberanis stated in a news release.
The Man Cave, according to Soberanis, is the only nail shop within a 50-mile radius that offers pedicures and manicures only to men over the age of 13.
Soberanis said her clients varied from lawyers and blue-collar employees to diabetic men who came to her shop for pampering at 2099 S Pine St Suite I, Spartanburg, SC 29302.
“I saw a need for nail care for men. They’re an underserved population when it comes to nail care. For some reason, men sometimes believe that it’s kind of emasculating and I wanted to dispel that myth. I wanted them to know that it’s OK; it’s a part of hygiene and wellness care,” Soberanis said.
Footbaths, pedicures, hand soaks, nail trimming and filing, cuticle removal, hot towel compression, and hand, leg, and arm massages are among the services offered by the Man Caves for guys aged 13 and up.
When she opened The Man Cave, Soberanis said her main goal was to provide a calm, relaxing environment for men in the Upstate to get pampered without the stress of a typical unisex nail salon.
The Man Cave hopes to grow and offer additional services such as hair cuts and massages, as well as holding group watch parties.
