1302720992407_6996053Beach season is around the corner! Finding yourself ill-prepared could put you into a “hairy” situation. Join us on Sunday, May 19, 2013, from 10am to 4pm, as we hit up Jay Michael Salon and Spa (at the Phoenix, 1600 Arch Street) for Manscape Mania. The folks at Jay Michael are volunteering their time and donating 100% of monies collected to our favorite charity, City of Hope. Lose the fur and help fight prostate cancer during this unique grooming event.

Manscape Mania turns the mundane task of men’s grooming on its ear by adding fun and flair to buffing, coiffing and styling. Special packages have been developed to help save you dollars but let you leave looking like a rock-star  Before, during and after your services, enjoy beer tastings, complimentary nibbles from Tirnanog, free Matrix boxed gift set (value $40), free ride from Uber (up to $20) and a chance to win a $1,000 overnight prize package for two in the “Most Dramatic Makeover” contest.  Gifts in the package include Tiffany necklace and an Atlantic City Weekend Hotel Package. Who’s feeling lucky?

In advance of Manscape Mania, City of Hope and Jay Michael is looking to crown one lucky male “Furriest Philadelphian.” The winner will receive a makeover during  the day’s festivities, plus a year of free styling products (approximate value $400) and a year of complementary haircuts (approximate value $2,000). Interested applicants can apply by sending a current photo (headshot and full body) to jami@jaymichael.com by May 12, 2013.  Friends and family can also nominate a winner. Entries must include name, age and email address. Must be 21 and older to participate. Certain restrictions apply.

If you don’t have a need to tame your hairy beast, then feel free to nominate a friend and come watch their transformation.
