Adam Wilson gets spoilt rotten via the Ultimate Grooming Package at Pour Homme by Hommage.
The package includes a hair cut, shave, exfoliation, hand and foot grooming and promises to leave me preened and rejuvenated.
Step by step
After being offered a choice of tea or coffee, I am lead to the barber’s chair where a friendly stylist trims and sorts out my mop of hair into an on-trend, smart but stylish look. I opt out of the precision shave as I prefer to keep my ‘five o‘clock shadow’ as it is known, but judging by the Parisian products they have on offer I’m sure the experience would have been a pleasure. Next I am sat on a chair that feels straight out of a business-class airline and three therapists gently get to work on my feet and hands while the other gives me a facial, which includes their signature Black Diamond Exfoliation, which washes away dead skin cells while being extremely gentle on your skin.
I feel rather spoilt, and my face, fingers and toes look as groomed as a premiership footballer.
• The surroundings are very relaxing and with TVs and music on offer, there is no chance of boredom if you can’t relax (which you will).
• Friendly and professional staff.
• The place is open-plan so you could feel uneasy trying to chill out.
