Halo [for Men's] Gold Coast location, 21 W. Elm, has just launched their new Quickies menu -- five skin care services meant to hydrate and revitalize on the fly.

For those who don't already know, Halo [for Men] is a salon and spa -- with five locations in Chicago -- that offers a masculine environment for city-dwelling men who could use a little pampering. Services include razor shaves, waxing, massages, facials and hand and foot grooming.

A rundown of the Quickies menu (call (312) 642-4256 to make an appointment):

-- Pop in Mud Mask, $25 (15 minutes): Deep cleansing mask to reduce oily skin.

-- Texter Hand Treatment, $25 (15 minutes): A de-stressing, moisturizing hand treatment.

-- Drink Conditioning Seaweed Mask, $30 (15 minutes): A deep moisturizing mask to sooth and protect dry skin

-- Raccoon Firming Eye Treatment, $45 (30 minutes): A fast route to reducing wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.

-- Junior Seaweed Facial, $55 (30 minutes): Fast alternative to a full facial that still nourishes, hydrates and rejuvenates with anti-oxidants.

The Quickies are at the Gold Coast location only. Other locations include: 1655 N. Damen, 654 W. Diversey, 500 W. Madison and 70 W. Madison.

This is surprising, but a trend I think might be catching on. I wonder how many other salons are going to follow this trend and launch a quick "in 'n' out" service for guys that allows them to get spa treatments without feeling like they're in the spa?

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out!
