LUXE GROOMING: JOHN ALLAN'S SPA
The word "spa" quickly conjures thoughts of peace, tranquil, zen, and all other serene synonyms. Imagine how Mr. MSR felt after striding in John Allan's welcoming clubby interiors (located @ 46 E. 46th Street) on Thanksgiving Eve. The perfect touch-up before feasting with family. As a deluxe grooming indulge I chose John Allan's full white glove (literally) experience!
The Signature Full Service (Only $65) pampering boasts: A deep scalp shampoo massage [nearly dozed off :)]. A mild hair conditioning session. Hot towel face treatment. Haircut. Manicure. Lastly, a look-down-here shoe shine!
J.A.S. staffers I engaged--from reception hosts to shampoo expert--I notice, I built quick rapports. Case-in-point: My female barber who perfected up a fly-guy dark Caesar 'cut, bundled a basket of tips for my current barber to apply. Although The Signature... packs a surplus of services, the overall session is prompt with detail attention. Simply put, John Allan ladies hands perform swiftly. (Beauty experts undergo a fierce J.A.S training regimen no matter their previous experience.)
Other offering essentials I can appreciate: A quintessential pool table for shooting billiards with pals. A private bar stocking top shelf libations and a cozy TV room to kickback with treasured sitcoms.

Currently I'm interacting the brand's newest Travel Kit bundle! The "guy tested, airline approved" see-through pouch of grooming essentials (Ocean Shampoo, Mint Conditioner, Scrub Face Exfoliant, Shave Cream, and Bodywash all in 1.0z bottles) eliminates your need for boxy + big beauty items.
Mr. MSR say "condense is always the best sense!
