Halo For Men Spa
Buy magista obra bob Patrizi purchased Halo, a wellestablished unisex salon in Chicago, in January of 2005. Upon signing the lease, he began to research salons in New York City, Dallas, Los Angeles, and London and developed the idea for a men salon a place where men would actually want to go. AM sat down with Bob to get his insight on what guys should expect from a spa experience and what kind of hair and skin products are the best for men.
Men salons Why did you decide to make Halo a men salon?
I created Halo [For Men] to cater to urban men by providing a sophisticated yet modest grooming environment where they could feel comfortable. At Halo [For Men], jr magista men can enjoy luxurious salon services without worrying about feeling out of place or being gawked at like at other femaledominated salons and spas.
What products do jr magista you keep in stock at Halo for your own employees to use on their clients?
We have a full line of Joe Grooming products. This is an organic line of hair care products that reasonably priced there is no Joe Grooming product we carry that costs over 25 bucks. Unlike at other salons, at Halo [For Men] we only carry one line of grooming products men have enough decisions to make!
Each Halo [For Men] client that receives any of our hair services, such as Man (which combines a haircut, hairstyle, scalp massage, hand wax and massage, hot towel and facial toner, cleanup shampoo and a free touchup within two weeks), also receives the Joe Grooming daily shampoo and conditioner. Both of these products contain allnatural tea tree oil, which is a natural tool for scalp stimulation and exfoliation and also has cleansing properties.
We also stock the full line of Joe Grooming products in our spa for clients to use in our spa showers and after their spa services.
Salon upsells Guys are often wary of stylists buy magista obra at salons or spas trying to push products on them. Should they be?
In my experience, spas and salons will typically try and upsell on everything but the front door to a firsttime customer. It drives me nuts! One time I left a spa after spending about 100 bucks on buy magista obra a treatment and another 100 on products. When I got home, I felt duped. They sucked me into buying a face cream I already had in a different brand as well as an ointment I would buy magista obra probably never roll on. After that experience, I never went back to that place.
At Halo [For Men], we start slow, maybe suggesting a hair styling product for a firsttime client either a paste or cream that will only lead to him spending an additional 17 bucks or so, not the 100 bucks I spent. For the more regular clients who have been in at least three times and have a relationship with one of our stylists, we often recommend a shampoo or conditioner.
At Halo [For Men], whatever products we do recommend are ones that I like and I use, not just what a sales rep says is good. I hope my clients realize that we not pushing crap products just to sell for the heck of it buy magista obra jr magista.
