It's not totally uncommon anymore to see this type of thing at nail salons and spas. And contrary to popular belief, it usually has nothing to do with the man's sexual preference. Although it's not yet something every woman is accredited to seeing, it certainly does not make the man any "less of a man". If women have the privilege of getting pampered through a manicure, why can not a man have the same right of passage without being labeled or laughed at? Granted, a man having his nails painted pink might just send out a snicker or two, but this usually is not the case when men get professional manicures. In fact, it is not uncommon for men not to have the actual manicure as a top priority when visiting a nail salon.
If you were to ask any random guy if he would ever get a manicure, a good majority of them would probably say no. Why would they risk that type of judgment? But in the back of their mind, they're thinking, "sure, why not?" Some men will even admit to having a manicure with no shame. Unlike women, they do not visit their nail salon to have a French manicure or leave sporting the latest shade of ruby red. They are there to relax, unwind, and sometimes even to impress a lady for occasions like date nights or weddings. Everyone knows that getting a professional manicure is fun and enjoyable. You get to sit in a big chair that massages your back, sip on bottled water or tea, and enjoy the temporary escape from the world by having your hands and arms massaged with aromatherapy oil. Some nail salons even let you watch TV as you get pampered. And although the home should be a haven, you can not get this kid of star treatment when you've got kids and laundry piled up on the floor. It's the perfect mini-getaway for males and females alike!
