:: Spotlight :: Mankind celebrates Melbourne opening

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

The long awaited ‘brother’ of the Mankind flagship store in Sydney is open and celebrating with a special launch event on Thursday July 16, 2015 at 127 Toorak Road South Yarra. Owner Paul Anderson has finally responded to the call for a Melbourne base. “I had so many requests from guys who travel interstate that come regularly to us in Sydney and wanted an urban, energetic feel of Surry Hills.”

An institution in Sydney since 2004 - Kevin Spacey, Baz Luhrmann and John McGrath are just a few on a long list of well-known identities who’ve discovered Mankind - the Mankind Melbourne clinic has landed in the epicentre of South Yarra, at the old Queens Hairdressing site, a 5 minute walk from South Yarra train station on Toorak Road.

Mankind is a stylish, modern, male grooming clinic, offering a comprehensive list of premium services for men: barber cuts, straight blade shaves, beard trims, skin care, face and body treatments, therapeutic, remedial and sports massage, waxing, laser and Botox, all tailored to guys and provided in a relaxed environment by specialised technicians and state of the art equipment.

The generously proportioned, custom built premises feature high ceilings, clean lines and organic elements inspired by a mix of Scandinavian design with a twist of modern vintage. The new space reflects the company’s credo of time-honoured, old world service and state of the art treatments. With two barber chairs and four large treatment rooms, this luxurious location is a perfect destination for all Mankind in general – brothers, fathers, sons, husbands, bosses, and employees….and all guys who care about their appearance, or want a place to unwind.

Mankind’s select packages – The Groom the Groom, The Great Escape, The Presidential, The Hair of the Dog and The Magnificent Seven, ensure it's an excellent destination to prepare for social events – (groomsmen before the big day or pre- race meetings).

Mankind’s gift certificates are available for any treatment or value and are an excellent solution for the guy who has enough socks. With Father’s Day approaching, they make the perfect gift for dad. Mankind’s trademark Australian made, natural skincare range is available in-store, along with premium skin care lines – Aspect and Dermalogica. There’s also men’s grooming accessories like Truefiitt and Hill shaving sets, German designed grooming kits; F Hammann and Zwillinger and Scents by Costume National. So many more gift ideas for the men in your life.

Mankind continues to be the premier destination for men in Australia. In a city of well-groomed men, Mankind Melbourne will now provide a much needed one stop shop. The launch event will have many fashionable men and their female friends in attendance. Well-groomed gents from the world of fashion, entertainment, art and business will come together to celebrate the launch on July 16 enjoying Miss Chu dumplings, fine wines and Asahi beer and take home gift bags with Mankind beauty products.
