About Face of Man

Our Founding History

Due to increasing demand, in 2011 Face of Man relocated to a generously proportioned, well-appointed premises in Sydney’s central business district, evoking the atmosphere of an early 20th-century smoking lounge reflective of our time honoured approach to customer service.

A really wonderful, totally professional service for men that is run in a highly Client focused manner. Facilities and range of services really superb. I totally recommend visiting - you will want to come back again and again and your skin will also!
Excellent work and Rana have a lot of knowledge about facial and beauty products. Highly recommended.I would highly recommend Rana and the team at Face Of Man to anyone looking to relax, improve their complexion and overall appearance.
Five stars for the Face of Man salon in York Street, Sydney.When I first made contact it was Susan who answered the phone, and she was so warm and reassuring and wonderful that by the time I arrived at the salon it was like coming home and being among friends. Susan came down in the lift to let me in, because it was after business hours, and placed me safely in the hands of Rana. Susan is as delightful and charming in person as she is on the phone.Yesterday was my first visit there, and it was for my first-ever male brazilian. Wow! What an experience! It happened in this big, private space that was at once squeaky clean, minimalist and luxurious. And the bed was really comfortable, too :)Rana was funny, in her own wry and deadpan way, and so down-to-earth and professional that it never occurred to me to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. Mind you, there was discomfort in the treatment itself, but she warned me of this upfront, with her own special brand of dark humour 🙂 And it was over quickly because she's that good! Now I'm really happy with the result and pleased that I made the decision to have a brazilian. I feel like a new man. And I've booked in my next appointment.By the way, Face of Man is not some little shopfront salon looking out to the street. It's a suite of plush rooms and areas on the second floor above Abbey's Bookshop, completely discreet, and there's a feeling of space, privacy and luxury. The staff are warmly welcoming and amazing, and it's all just for men! How spoiling is that?I can totally recommend Face of Man to any man who thinks about his appearance and wants to present his best face and other bits to the world. And if you're weighing up the pros and cons of getting a brazilian, just book it now. Face of Man will look after you, and you'll be delighted with the result.
Excellent experience!!Rana is extremely knowledgeable and explains the procedures really well. I always feel relaxed when getting a treatment from her. The IV Glutathione treatment is a game changer. I have started to see improvements in my complexion already, only after 2 session.
RANA IS FINALLY BACK!! I usually get everything done from Rana and she's a perfectionist at everything she does. Very detailed oriented and understands problems of her clients and provides them with best service without rushing things. Highly recommend her!
Fantastic place, friendly, not intimidating at all, and genuinely caring
Wonderful pedicure and manicure with Emma today. Very professional and comfortable. Nice as a guy to have a dedicated salon. Great booking and welcome by Grace. Definitely recommend!
Rana was awesome - ensured I knew exactly what she was thinking and clearly explained the areas of concern and how we are going to resolve them and the results from my first session are better than I ever expected.For someone who isn’t one to adopt of regime of beauty steps; Rana has provided me an easy step-by-step plan that I’m confident I will be able to stick to.
Excellent and professional service. It was my first time visiting and will definitely be back. Answered all my questions and put me at ease throughout. Thanks!
Got my wedding day haircut with Shaf, and my goodness the man is a master of his craft. I'd pay any amount of money to have the same confidence getting my haircut with him again.
Rana did an outstanding job! Understood my needs perfectly and gave me the right treatment plan and products to help solve all of my issues. 10/10 would recommend
"A cut above the rest!"Modern, great atmosphere, and service to match.
Best experience of male waxing. Grace makes you feel welcome and comfortable. Booked again straight away. You won’t find any place better
Classy and elegant gentlemen spa.I did the Ultra Plus facial skin treatment and it was amazing.Rana was super professional and provided a superb service.
Five star service!!!'Rana' was such a delightful professional therapist, she did an amazing job on my brows. Highly Recommended for that 'Natural look'.I didn't have a prior booking made, and Rana made time outside of her normal work hours to accommodate me!!Next level service and dedication from Rana.Thanks so much for fitting me in 🙂
Face of man is the premier destination for all Men’s grooming services. With the beautiful decor and alluring ambience, It truly is the epitome of luxury. I was treated to a service that was truly unique and I owe a great deal of gratitude to Nurse Rana with her outstanding expertise and professionalism made the experience that much greater.
I brought my son in for his Y10 formal preparation. My goal was just to shape up his eye brows and clean up his skin a bit (did not expect too high as he has acne problem). However, Hang gave my son a full skin care lesson, cleaned up his black heads as many as possible, the most important thing was she taught him what to do afterwards with some products she suggested him to continue use.I did not give review immediately because I want to see how it went with those products. It has been 3 weeks now, my son was following the instructions and doing his routines everyday, his facial skin looks much better now - still has acne growing but much in control and he is much more conscious about what to do with his face..The products are expensive. However, it is precious to see my son doing his facial routines everyday to take care of his face and gain confidence! Thank you Hang!Wondering if Face of Man can offer facial cleaning / skin care service for teens with more affordable price during low business hours? as those teens will become your future customers 😊
Great service. Very professional staff.
Having never tried skin care for myself, am so glad i went with the right choice. As a first timer, she was just perfect 👌 and did an outstanding job. Sensitive to the needs of a first timer. For sure I will be back again all thanks to her. Thank you so much as well as Kate for the fantastic job done. Have never felt this good in a long time. Cheers.
Had a great waxing session with Grace, she was efficient, friendly and very thorough, definitely recommend her. And the place had a great atmosphere right from their reception, friendly staff. Even being in a transition space, it was neat, clean and organized!
Amazing experience, highly recommended.
Incredible staff and overall service. Would come back again and again!
Wonderful clinic. Welcomed with whiskey, delightful and professional staff and excellent result. Highly recommended,Note, the new venue in York Street is excellent.
Was an amazing time, first time doing anything like this and the service was impeccable, would easily recommend to anyone.
I felt a little unsure when I walked into the temporary location on King St as it did not have the same vibe as the old location on George St. The George st venue had an amazing atmosphere. I loved it. The style, decor, designed for men to feel comfortable.However the service is still great and professional. I’m looking forward to the new unveiling bigger plans for FOM.
Grace is great. Very knowledgeable, personable and skilled. I had no hesitation in making a follow up booking to keep me looking good. Thanks guys. Cheers. Lester.
Grace was very helpful with explaining all the different treatments and was a great help with starting my skin improvement journey
Practitioner was very gentle, sensitive to my needs, provided ongoing consultation throughout the session which I felt was very helpful and had exceptional customer service. Highly recommend her for services ongoing. Feeling fantastic
I recently visited Face of Man for the Elemis Pro treatment and would highly recommend Face of Man and this treatment. The whole experience from start to finish was exceptional and would highly recommend Kate who was very knowledgeable, professional and personable.
Welcoming staff, complimentary drink, lovely environment and top notch therapists. Excellent.
Had my first treatment this week with Torrie. Very professional service, all details are being taken care of for a great pumpering experience. thank you Face of Man team, I will come back. Recommended!
Excellent service - Grace was personable and professional offering excellent advice!~
Experienced, efficient staff and good atmosphere. Highly recommended
An amazing first time experience 15/10Such great advice and the treatment was next levelI’ve had many treatments and this was so detailed and I’m glowingGreat results already re booked
Great massage after weeks of travelling, the most relaxed I’ve felt in months. Thank you to Torrie and the team.
It was such a relaxing and refreshing experience.
A classy place for men and their wellness and beauty. Highly recommend. Booked in for waxing in a few weeks and another massage which was heavenly. Many places for girls but finally found a place just for blokes well done. I will be a long term customer
Highly recommended, very professional, great atmosphere, lovely therapists, will definitely be back.
Thank you Rana, I had an amazing experience. You were very gentle with my face and time flew during our conversations. Looking foward for another visit
Loved my experience. I had the starting point with Elle the first time I went and then a Hydro Facial with Rana the second time. Both therapists were friendly, explained everything thoroughly and made me feel at ease. This will definitely becomes a regular for me. Highly recommend.
Rana was very gentle, kind and made my first experience very comfortable, will definitely continue to come here
First timer. Torri was excellent. Great manicure just in time for the wedding. Superb conversationalist. This was also a test run to make sure I found a place that I could really relax in. Definitely will be coming back.
Kate was amazing. So helpful and friendly and the facial was heavenly! Thanks Kate 🙂
This place is a hidden gem. Prior to visiting Face of Man, I was oblivious to the benefits of skin care for men and within the space of a few months I now consider myself a regular. This is specifically attributed to the outstanding and exceptional service of Rana. Staff like her are easily an asset to such a business, and I am a classic point in case in that regard. I was treated by Rana for a simple wax that I booked on a last minute basis. That treatment now transformed into a genuine excitement to explore different services and engage in various skin care regimes simply because of her expertise, knowledge and above and beyond service. Don’t let this one go!
