THE LATEST BUZZ AT THE RITZ-CARLTON ORLANDO, GRANDE LAKES: NICOLE CAMACHO NAMED MASTER BARBER AT THE CRAFT BARBER
ORLANDO, FL , Nov. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There is a cultural resurgence in men’s grooming, according to a recent Forbes article, and The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes is doing its part to provide a luxurious barbershop experience with the addition of The Craft Barber at The Ritz-Carlton Spa and the appointment of Nicole Camacho as Master Barber.
Estimated to become a $26 billion industry by 2020, the men’s grooming revolution is not only apparent with the uptick in high-end shaving products and subscription services, but in the resurgence of barber shops, with Barbering named as the fastest-growing profession in the U.S. according to Forbes.
Luxury barbershops are now in high demand and The Craft Barber recently opened at The Ritz-Carlton Spa at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes. As with the resort’s other curated experiences — including crafted culinary and food and beverage services — The Craft Barber has taken the traditional haircut and shave to an entirely new level, providing male guests with an opportunity to incorporate a more luxurious salon visit into their lifestyle.
Inside The Craft Barber, guests are welcomed with a Bourbon or honey-infused Surplus beer as they enjoy a signature grooming service. The vintage barber ambiance has been modernized with rustic industrial elements and a soundtrack of Frank Sinatra or jazz tunes. Ms. Camacho is an expert at providing a recommendation on how her guests can upgrade their look — if they so choose — and part of her services include assessing a man’s hair thickness, facial shape, and coloring to offer the best style possible for them. She counsels not only on cut and coloring, but provides styling tips as well to ensure the most long-lasting results from her artistry.
For those gentlemen who truly want a relaxing grooming experience, The Craft Barber takes the iconic hot lather shave to new heights with luxurious facial cleansing, massage, soothing hot towel, shave tonic, rich hot lather, straight razor shave, and more depending upon the service selected. The Craft Barber is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and advance reservations are required. For a complete menu of services, visit RitzCarltonOrlandoSpa.com. With the holidays coming up, a visit to The Craft Barber would make a great gift for men who might never have experienced a luxurious grooming treatment — or for those who can’t do without it.
