First Mens Nail Salon To Open in LA

Posted on October 25, 2013 @ 10:48 am

Los Angeles now has its first men's nail salon, called Hammer & Nails - The Nail Shop for Guys, founded by Michael Elliot. It's on Melrose Avenue, and will offer custom designed manicures for men when it opens on November 9th.

The shop will also offer custom-designed Hand and Foot Treatments. And the guy-friendly decor features oversized personal leather chairs, with personal flat-screen TVs with headphones, premium sports channels, and complimentary beverages. Also part of the man-cave look is the front end of a classic Chevy pickup truck, and a leather punching bag and gloves from the 1940's.

"Men have very different grooming needs than women and should be treated accordingly," says Elliot. "We decided to open our flagship store in Los Angeles, with all its diversity, culture, fashion and forward-thinkers. Our goal is to provide a HAMMER & NAILS experience to men across the nation in the near future."
