Hotels have been very keen on hotel spas in recent years--whether opening their own full-blown facilities with a dozen treatment rooms and exotic therapies or simply having one or two treatment rooms available with the basic rub-downs all travelers need. But just because a hotel might be five-star, doesn't mean its spa is. We told you what to look for in a very good spa as well as signs of a very bad spa. Now, here's a little spa love for the men out there.

Often aimed at women, hotel spas can be daunting places for men. However, more and more treatments especially tailored to menís needs are popping up on spa menus all over the world and itís no longer a rare sight to see a man getting a massage, facial or even, (gulp) a wax.

These aren't too dissimilar to those for women but here are few things that can optimize a manís spa experience, whether a first-timer or a veritable spa hound.

Last week, the Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue re-opened after two years of intensive renovations. Rates are already at a premium for the hotel, around $440 a night this weekend, but you can at least sleep knowing that you will have fabulous hair the next day.

That's because celeb hairstylist, Julien Farel, will not only open his salon in the hotel in March, he's also provided the in-room toiletries in all of the 379 guest rooms and suites. Farel's Anti-Aging Haircare & Body are powered by an exclusive Anti-Aging Balance 'A2B' Technology that " delivers clinically proven Anti-Aging Bioactives to rejuvenate skin and hair with intense hydration, targeted repair and vital protection." YES.

But that's not all. You can style your tresses with a Julien Farel high-performance hairdryer which is now present in all the Loews Hotels and Resorts nationwide. So while the room rates might be high, you'll be able to get salon-quality hair without having to pay Farel's prices, which start at around $650 just for the cut. Blowdrying costs extra.
