When Charles Hall, the vice president of sales and marketing for Hommage, wants an end-of-week indulgence, he gets the Ultimate Facial at Manhattan’s latest spot for men’s grooming, Hommage Atelier. The $250 black diamond exfoliation, followed by a lymphatic drainage, an acupressure massage, and a black silt mask, was just one of many signature treatments unveiled at the grand opening of Hommage’s Madison Avenue penthouse suite on April 4. Treatments range from a $50 hand massage to a $650 haircut from Julien Farel, which includes a shoulder, neck, and head massage, and may be tailored to clients’ requests.
Hommage Atelier is a partnership between men’s skin-care and grooming line Hommage, and venerable New York hair stylist Julien Farel.
