Flying from Gatwick Airport this month? THIS is how you could get a FREE spa treatment
Nearly two thirds of men admit to doing minimal personal grooming before a holiday, whereas 87 per cent of women will prep and prime before vacationing.
Gatwick Airport has come up with a solution to last-minute beauty issues – and starting this week couples flying together from the airport will be able to enjoy a free pedicure or MAN-icure before they depart.
The CloudSpa’s pilot scheme includes a foot waxing service for men who can’t embrace their fuzzy feet.
CEO of CloudSpa, Joel Sutton said: “Since opening, we’ve had couples come together to both have manicures and pedicures and even had some ladies wanting their partners to get a brow tidy!
“Offering the free treatments for couples will hopefully encourage more men to try treatments to get beach ready and feel less worried about what their partner thinks of their grooming habits!”
Despite the research finding clear differences between the sexes, it appears that several men do still enjoy a pamper, with over a quarter admitting they like undergoing pre-holiday grooming treatments.
Retail Business Development Manager at Gatwick Airport, Denise Weekes added: “We know that women typically enjoy a pre-holiday pamper, but we have also seen an increase in male grooming, so want to offer something that both men and women can take advantage of before they fly.
“This pilot pampering scheme will offer couples the opportunity to put their feet up and feel polished before they jet off.
“Whether you’re looking for an excuse for your partner to join you, or if they simply didn’t have time ahead of their holiday – there’s a range of treatments on offer that are quick and fuss-free!”
A limited number of couples’ treatments will be available at CloudSpa in Gatwick’s North Terminal, starting from Monday 19th June 2017.
