I have over the past year or so noticed a higher level of men asking for a shampoo and or scalp massage after a cut.

Especially from males in their 50's   age group, even if they have very little hair..  I asked one client why he wanted a shampoo considering he had very little hair.. his reply was that it was so relaxing and also the shampoo made him feel clean and fresh when leaving the salon.

We started to ask male clients about whether or not they would like a shampoo and scalp massage (regardless of amount of hair),,,and surprisingly a large number were willing to have this treatment and PAY EXTRA...  so from $15 quick cuts to $25/$30   a good way to increase turnover without a lot of exra work or effort.

I would like to hear other's experiences or preferences in regards to shampooing the older age group males who a thin on hair ?   Does it seem rediculous to you, or is this something to look at for extra income ?

Quick add on to my post above..

i forget to say that we also found that a lot of males were too "embarrassed" to have a shampoo in the salon..especially if the shampoo basins were in full view of the other customers.  Even though they prefer a unisex or ladies salon over a barber,  (very common and increasing trend i have found)... they preferred more privacy whilst still wanting a relaxing and enjoyable clean fresh experience.

Interested to hear your comments or experiences as well.
