Sitting quietly on the 2nd Floor of the newly established ET centre are two spaces adjacent to each other that promise to revolutionize grooming as we know it. These are Femme World and Manhub Grooming Studio. And I’ll give you 5 reasons why you should ditch your barber or beautician for them😅.
1.To Them, Grooming Is An Honoured Art
Male grooming has come a long way. From the days when a block of soap was all one needed. Today, a well-kept beard, shaving your hair, doing your nails, smelling great are the least of what we expect of any 21st century man.
At Manhub Grooming Studio, you can get all the above services and more.
I’m talking the usual head shave and beard trim and extras like manicures, pedicures, Swedish massage, Asian head massage, deep tissue massage, ear cleaning, scrubbing, and steaming.
They also offer waxing of the armpit, leg, chest, arm, bikini area, back, ears and nose. Additionally you can get any of the four types of facials they have. These are bronze, silver, gold and diamond.
2. Both Places Look Amazing!!
The interior design of Manhub Grooming Studio and Femme World provide a welcome respite from the hackneyed salons and barbershops that populate all the streets in town. They ooze class and sophistication.
The two are decked out with sofas and fancy black leather barber & nail chairs.
They also feature palette storage
, inbuilt shelves,
big mirrors, house plants, books,
energy stones, and an edgy, breathtaking chandelier.
3. Their Level of Expertise
A messed up haircut or hairdo can do a number on your confidence. It’s one of the biggest fears most people cite when trying out a new salon or barbershop. Then there’s the issue of wounds or itching or razor burns all of which can be very annoying right?
Bearing all that in mind, it’s only fair that your grooming needs should be handled by someone who knows what they are doing. Thankfully, the staff at both Manhub or Femme World are knowledgeable and skilled in all things beauty industry related. Additionally, they have experience to fall back on.
The most impressive thing, however, is that they personalise their services. The one fits all concept does not apply. They take time to study your hair and skin type and advise you on the best products as well as grooming techniques for you specifically. This is made possible because they stock quite the range of sophisticated, reputable grooming products so as to better accommodate the needs of their customers.
Barbers have 2 important jobs. One, to make you look good in the process boosting your self-esteem. Two, they assume the role of part-time therapist and engage you in conversations to help you unburden. It’s no different at Manhub Grooming Studio.
There is a certain camaderie or in simple man terms friendship, among the staff and their clients that makes it a safe space. The same of course applies to Femme World.
5. The Prices At Manhub Grooming Studio and Femme World Are Great
Services offered at both Manhub Grooming Studio and Femme World are affordable. This is on top of providing stellar services, a safe space, and a fancy grooming experience. I mean, what more could you ask for?
A haircut complete with a wash, and a head, neck and shoulder massage will cost you Ksh 300 only. Shaping your eyebrows costs Ksh 100 while applying gel is Ksh 500. Ordinary nail polish goes for Ksh 150 and a full manicure or pedicure for 500 Bob. Attaching their rate cards so y’all can get an idea of their charges.
