On November 9th, LA’s newest nail salon will open its doors in West Hollywood: HAMMER & NAILS – The Nail Shop for Guys. That’s right – a nail salon exclusively for men.
Screenwriter Michael Elliot felt the need for a man-centric nail grooming salon after a few too many uncomfortable visits to female-dominated salons. “When I first visited a traditional nail salon to treat my callused hands and feet, I felt completely like a fish out of water in a predominantly female environment,” he said.
“I immediately saw a need for a nail shop that caters to businessmen, athletes, mechanics and men who take proper care of their appearance and hygiene. We’ve created a first-of-its-kind environment that is welcoming to all men by catering to their specific needs in a super-cool environment.”
Decorated with oversized leather chairs, the front-end of a classic Chevy pickup truck and a leather punching bag and gloves from the 1940’s, Elliot spared no cost to create the ultimate man cave for grooming. Custom-designed hand and foot treatments will be paired with personal flat-screen TVs and headphones, premium sports channels, and complimentary beverages. The space is also currently waiting on a liquor license in order to eventally serve complimentary beer and scotch a well.
HAMMER & NAILS – The Nail Shop for Guys officially opens its doors on November 9 at 8257 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, 90046. The salon will be taking appointments and walk-ins.
