The modern man seeks refuge in a lot of different dens when in the need for some much needed guy time: a baseball stadium, an arena, the man-cave. But like many of you out there, self included, a lot of guys are flocking to more spaces where relaxation and pampering are a part of the equation. Welcome to Dieci Uomo.

Located in Livingston, NJ, Dieci Uomo is a men’s spa offering a balance of sophistication, sustainability, and innovation. The LEED approved space offers first-class masculine treatments including: exceptional haircut and color services, hot shaves, hand and feet grooming, waxing, facials and massages.

It turns out that owners Paul and Marie Gaglioti are personally very passionate about both grooming and sustainability. Marie stated, “We recycle everything we can and re-purpose all things as well…I knew this would be a perfect opportunity to renovate the structure and apply these green principles. I took a college course that was offered over the summer in 2010 in Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design LEED with my son in-law who is a contractor. Together we learned about the Green Rating system and he oversaw the renovation making sure that every sub-contractor on the job followed the protocol.” This is definitely a space with the modern man in mind.

The owners look at men as underserved customers in the lifestyle and spa market, “We know that there is a growing trend in men seeking out grooming and wellness services.” Owner Marie Gaglioti went on to say that men, “are looking for a comfortable space to call their own.” And, that’s just what Dieci Uomo offers.
