I have been visiting this place for the last 7 years & can testify to its high standards of care, excellence, knowledge and professionalism! Tried a new therapist for facial (Kate) on May 19, 2022. I highly recommend her.Kate was fabulous - full of knowledge, experience and skill. I was very satisfied with her approach, manner & treatment style, for my one hour facial.She is thorough, conscientious, patient, attentive, warm, friendly, polite & ensures complete satisfaction from the treatment being carried out. Face of Man is undoubtedly the best male grooming salon in Sydney!
Wonderful clinic. Welcomed with whiskey, delightful and professional staff (thank you Stella) and excellent result. Highly recommended, Shane

I hadn't been for some time ,but I wasn't disappointed ,I had a wonderful wax experience with Stella and a great massage with Torrie I left feeling like a new person It was just what I needed, It's the best salon dedicated to male skin and beauty needs in Sydney.
Journeyed away to a distant and blissfully tranquil world, in the hands of a true artisan. What a joy! Thank you again, Stella.
Stella was amazing and so experienced. I booked my next appointment straight away. I loved my treatment today. 10 out of 10. Stella is a beautiful person and knows her skincare and she explained everything with ease. Before I forget, Stella has magic hands and I felt so relaxed afterwards and at ease. Thank you thank you Stella and the excellent team at Face of Man. Give them all a big hug Kylie 😊
The atmosphere was relaxing and classy, and Torrie made me feel right at home. Can’t wait to come back!
Stella was fantastic. The massage was exceptional and I really enjoyed the chat during the facial. Stella is very knowledgeable with her skincare.The receptionist (who's name I never got, 😞 sorry) was great as well. Very welcoming.Will definitely be back. A great way to start the weekend.
Wonderful treatment and Torrie was fantastic!
Stella is very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended

What a way to end a busy week! I can't believe how relaxed I feel after such an excellent session. I also can't understand why I haven't done this sooner. Amazing service, thanks so much.
Stella was great, very knowledgeable and experienced. Conversations were great too
I discovered Face of Man via Google, because the business is on level 10 in an office building I wasn’t sure what to expect as you can’t see the staff or the cleanliness via a street level front window before choosing to enter. I was very happy with staff and service. I’ll be back again. Recommended.
I am glad to have hady first ever facial experience with Stella. Thank you!
First time here. Excellent service and wonderful work by the wonderful Maria. 10/10
Premises are modern and inviting, from the smiling welcome at reception to professionalism and friendliness of Kate, I couldn’t ask for anything more. Will definitely be back, the current package deals also look really great value for a CBD spa. Thanks again!
great space and customer service from the moment I walked in to the time i left. Stella was amazing whilst waxing me. communicated alot about the procedure, made sure I was comfortable and relaxed. she was gentle that it was pretty painless. also gave me some great tips and advice about after care. will definitely be back!
Great explanations at each step of the treatment,I feel relaxed and my skin looks amazing!I will definitely come back for a treatment with Stella.
Such an informative, relaxing treatment. Angie happily took me through everything and created a calming environment, thank you Angie.
I thought that both the wax and massage were excellent. I couldn't be happier. I always feel well treated and welcome.
Thank you for making a tedious task seem relaxing Kamia. One of the best waxes I have had. Keep up the good work!
From my arrival to my departure, the quality of the hospitality and service was extremely impressive. Hang (my specialist) was highly attentive, friendly , provided expert detail and answered all of my questions whilst skilfully performing each component of the session. I would highly recommend Hang and the team at Face Of Man to anyone looking to relax, improve their complexion and overall appearance.
Everything was great.It was my first facial treatment, and Angie gave me a lot of important knowledge for my skin. Her hands was so delicate as well! Surely will come back regularly~101% recommended!
The service, experience, conversation and the therapy were all excellent. Kate explained everything before she commenced each step and was very knowledgeable. I’m immensely looking forward to the finished product of my treatment today in a few days time. I can only give Face of Man my highest recommendation. Thank you again for making me feel and look young again.
Really friendly service, and the staff really know what they’re doing.Would definitely recommend!

I’ve been a long term return client to Face of Man because of the care and dedication of the team, but today’s Grooming Lounge Experience with Amy, Stell and Rhiannon managed to exceed my expectations.The attention and pampering today with all the treatments was incredible and I left feeling like a king.The Grooming Lounge Experience at Face of Man is a must for all men that value relaxation and self care.
Brilliant fantastic gentle relaxed atmosphere

Kate is welcoming, professional, friendly and very funny. Thank you for making waxing as comfortable as something like that can be.
Everyone I have referred Face Of Man too has had a great experience. Highly recommend 👌
I bought my friend a gift voucher from Face Of Man.
I’m so pleased I did.
He loved it.
Not only did he love the roll out the red carpet royal treatment feel....but he loved the knowledge that his therapist was able to pass onto him.
He is now more confident to keep up with his home care.
Highly recommend 🏆
Bought a gift certificate for my husband for his birthday. He was nervous but pleasantly surprised he could look and feel so good. Thank you Face Of Man.
Best place to go and the staff are all friendly
I don't normally post reviews good or bad but I felt compelled this time. After an incredibly stressful (work related) weekend and Monday morning the last thing I felt like doing was keeping my facial appointment at Face of Man. I am so grateful I did though... within 5 minutes of arriving I was lying in the dimly lit room and even though my mind was still racing I could start to feel a shift. Then Kate walked in and started erasing the previous 56 hours completely.The facial itself was amazing but the head and hand massage whilst under the LED lamp was something else (and don't get me started on the Coconut and Vanilla scented lotion.... :-)Added to this the calming but groovy music being piped into the room for that added cushion. I could have stayed there for hours.The issues at work are still there but I am so much more equipped and relaxed to deal with them. Absolutely do this for yourself.

Best skin care clinic for men in Sydney. Super helpful and friendly, and they really know their stuff!
I just returned home after the introductory skin treatment package from Face of Man and was impressed by the services offered. Amy and Stella were very accommodating and professional with no sense of being up-sold anything. I had a welcome scotch on arrival which put me in the perfect mood for my treatment. I found the prices reasonable and I look forward to making it a quarterly event.
After years of trying to find a decent place for skin needling and facials that focuses on men i knew this was the place. From the minute i walked in the girls were so helpful and professional. The fitout is amazing too makes you feel like a real king. They gave me the right advice for what I wanted. Safe to say after 2 sessions im already seeing great results. Prices are fair and worth every cent. Highly recommend.
Exceptional. The staff, the decor and the treatment itself are all top notch. It has the feel of a gentleman's club, with every detail seemingly hand selected. From the scotch on arrival to the reluctant departure, I left feeling refreshed, invigorated and eager to return.
Enjoyable experience - will be back!
I went in for a treatment and found Rhiannon to be very knowledgable and professional. It was not just about the treatment it was also the plan the team set in place for me to ensure my skin is looking fresh. After a month of visiting and buying some products my skin is looking great, I did not find the products that expensive as they are quality not like the cheaper stuff you buy at the supermarket. My partner was even asking to use some of the products they are that good!! I will be back soon to visit the team for a follow up treatment.
Staff are very knowledgeable, and was able to give detailed information in regards to the analysis of my scan and answer all my questions. Overall great service and atmosphere
Face of Man does NOT disappoint! If you're time poor, work in the city but still want to take care of yourself, this is the right place for you. My first skin treatment was a microdermabrasion and I definitely felt refreshed in the following days. A few weeks later, I booked myself in for another facial - a hydrafacial.Would recommend FoM!Maybe I'll take them up on their waxing services next.
I’ve discovered my new favourite place in Sydney. Went to face of man last Thursday and had the best experience. Cassandra made my day, so knowledgeable, professional and with the magic touch! Excited to go back!! Thanks guys, you’re awesome!
Awesome service, thanks sooooo much for your outstanding professional approach !
I always have an exceptional and professional experience at Face of Man. I am now educated in my skincare routine, after turning 30 recently I'm starting to pay more attention to my skin and health of it. I am using Ultraceuticals products which the girls recommended to me and i haven't looked back. I get comments on my skin "glow" regularly, I always look forward to visiting Face of Man for my "ME" time 🙂 The shop is beautiful and always a 10/10 experience!!
The only place to send your husband for all his grooming needs. Best in the business. They will really look after him 🙂
First time ever that I have had this treatment DNT and been to Face of Man, over a month i had the treatment and today my face is still much clearer and small freckles and pigmentation are now removed. I am now converted and have already been back for a 2nd treatment. Thanks to the team at Face of Man
The staff are very friendly, professional and hold a wealth of knowledge and experience.Their products are of a very high standard to match their procedures and venue.I happily travel into the city from the hills to come to face of man, would highly recommend for any man who dares to care! No matter what type of guy you are, you’ll feel relaxed and leave feeling like a king!
My experience at face of man was fantastic from start to finish. I was gifted a full hour facial by my wife and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were warm, friendly and knowledgeable and simply excellent at what they do. A beautiful space!I left feeling like a king and was just so relaxed for the rest of the day. My skin has never felt better and also they use the Ultraceuticals skin care range which was a bonus. Can’t wait to go back 🙂
I popped in a few weeks back to pick up some Ultraceuticals products. I got talking to the girls and loved hearing about the service they offer men. I booked my husband in for a treatment. A week later he is still raving about his treatment and the care his therapist took with him. Thank you for making him feel like a “king”.
I have visited many spas in my time and this one is one of the best! I spent 4 hours on a sat here as I was worn out and left here feeling amazing! The therapists are excellent and they use Ultraceuticals products which has given me the best skin. Can’t wait to come back! Guys do yourself a favour and book a package - you will not regret it!!
Loved the experience at Face of Man. Have been there three times now. The therapists were very friendly and knowledgeable about men's skin. Taught me about the importance of using skincare every day which I've stuck to and skin is looking awesome!
I bought my Grandfather a gift voucher from Face Of Man. He always likes to be well groomed for my grandma. He has travelled to many countries in his 80 years and has had many 5 star experiences. He said Face Of Man is ‘world class’ and he has not stopped thanking me for making him, in his words, ‘immaculate’. My Pop is a proper gent but firm too he wouldn’t say it was good unless it was the best! I highly recommend Face Of Man for any one who loves their grandfather !
My skin improved a lot since attending this place. Nicky is an awesome therapist who shares a lot of takeaway skincare info. The Ultraceutical products they sell are good. Offers waxing and massage. Still Sydney's premier mancare place for facials waxing etc.
Was a client for a while a long time ago and just kind of forgot about Face Of Man for some reason. Anyway, they came back onto my radar again recently so decided to book another appointment and boy am I glad I did. Had the most amazingly relaxed time, one of the best massages I have ever been treated to and a superb facial. Will be back again soon.I read some other reviews on here about product pushing and can say that not once was any product purchase mentioned during my visit.
Bought a gift voucher for my boyfriend who has always struggled with bad acne. It was something he was always uncomfortable about so I hoped he would get some good results - or at least enjoy being pampered for a few hours.Well he loved it! Since that first visit, his skin is looking incredible - breakouts are few and far between - and he has so much more confidence. He's now a regular, and I cannot recommend this place enough.The products are a little pricey, and there is a decent amount of upselling during these appointments, BUT he has found products that work for the first time in his life. The customer service is great, the skin advice is life-changing and the appointments sound like a lot of fun - I wish I got a beer while waiting for a beautician appointment!
I usually do not write any reviews for any place, as I am a difficult customer to impress. Nikki has been my Therapist from day one and I must say she has been spot on with her work. She is very friendly with her clients, but when it comes to work her professionalism is second to none. She doesn’t hurry into the treatment and makes sure we fully understand why she is doing it or recommending a product. This tells us that she is quite knowledgeable with her work. She makes sure we are totally relaxed and help us to de -stress completely and of course pampers us to the core . My skin looks great and its feels good when you receive compliments from people around you.Thank you for being customer-eccentric and it's the hard work of people like Nikki which win customers for you. I am just buying your customer experience and that's what makes me come back to you each time.Please pass on my thanks to Nikki for a job well done and exceeding my expectations every time I visit. Highly recommend this place if you are serious about your skin!!!
I purchased a voucher for my husband as his skin had started to become dry and dull. He was hesitant to have a 'facial' but is now hooked. His skin not only looks great but he is now a regular. A fantastic environment that allows men to feel comfortable to care for themselves. Highly recommended.
Been coming here for years and place just delivers. Great service, incredible space, glass of scotch on arrival if you want it. What more could you want.
Face of Man gave me a great service from start to finish. The experience surpassed my expectations and I will definitely be back.
Great professionals. The ambient is very friendly and relaxing. The reception with a glass of scotch left a good impression
Had my 1st intro to Face of man salon. the staff were very helpful and I would highly recommend. Can't wait for my next appointment.
Thanks to everyone at Face of Man for giving my cousin, Finn, a much needed pampering and relaxation before his wedding (a present from me). He was surprised that there’s a place like this! I’m not going to have a hard time thinking about gifts for male family over there anymore!
My brother went there for the first time, my birthday gift for him and he just loooooooved how the ladies pampered him! Said it was the best gift I ever gave him! Thank you FOM for making me win the best sister of the year award!
I bought a gift voucher for my fiancé as a gift and was served by the lovely receptionist who was so friendly and knowledgeable with which treatments was the best for my man. He came back from the treatment looking relaxed and pampered and most importantly his skin looks amazing even weeks after! Thank you - it is clear Face of Man are the experts to go to!!
I recently bought an 'Art of Relaxation' package for my dad's birthday and he absolutely loved it. A big thanks to the team at Face of Man for helping to organise the surprise and making him feel so welcome. He will definitely be back, and has already started recommending them to his friends!
My boyfriend loves the place sometimes more than me!! I know I'm always in the good books when I get him a gift voucher at face of man as he always gets treated like royalty or so he tells me haha
