506 Lounge Takes The Embarrassment Out Of Male Grooming

Taking pride in your physical appearance and grooming habits is something we strongly encourage here at D’Marge. However, despite male grooming being well and truly on the rise, research shows that only 25% of Aussie blokes feel comfortable visiting salons.


Recent research also found that 32% of men who would go for a wax, facial or manicure wouldn’t take the plunge because they find traditional salons too feminine, and 21% are too embarrassed. But that’s not what your girlfriends are saying. 38% of women wished their partner would take more care of their appearance and 64% are more likely to date a man who took care of his appearance.

That’s where 506 Lounge in Sydney’s Strand Arcade comes in.

“Men want to look good just as much as women do but can feel intimidated visiting a female dominated salon. We’ve launched 506 to meet the needs of Aussie men who want to look and feel polished without the stigma,” says 506 founder Michael Dykes.

In a stylish lounge setting, you can sit back, relax, watch a documentary or movie, listen to music and enjoy a cool drink while getting your male grooming needs sorted.

506 Lounge offers specialised treatments tailored specifically for men, including hot towel shaves, waxing, manicures, pedicures, facials and massage.

There’s even styling, nutrition and personal training services so you can leave feeling like a new man and keep your girlfriend happy.
