Standard barbershop menu services

Every barbershop has a reliable set of popular offerings that many clients will expect to find on your service menu.

1) Classic haircut ($28+)

The term "classic" haircut can mean different things to different clients. This service typically includes a consultation, hair cutting, neck shave, and styling. But this menu item is your chance to outline exactly what's included in your barbershop's signature classic cut. Be specific about the techniques used, the products applied, and the expected result. This transparency helps clients make informed decisions about which premium services to add.

2) Beard trim ($15+)

This service is perfect for clients wanting to maintain or reshape their beards. Perfect as standalone service appointments or add-ons, beard trims can earn steady revenue for your business.

3) Straight razor shave ($30+)

Offer a luxurious shaving experience using a straight razor. This service includes hot towels, shaving cream application, shaving, and aftershave balm. This menu item communicates the luxurious touchpoints in your barbershop's signature shave.

4) Haircut & beard trim ($40+)

This service includes a classic haircut with a beard trim, neck shave, styling, and a detailed beard trim. Bundling these services incentivizes clients to book a more comprehensive appointment.

5) Fade haircut ($30+)

Deliver a fade haircut service, where the hair is cut close to the head with a gradual decrease in length. You can specify the type of fade (high, low, skin, etc.) and whether it includes a neck shave and styling.

6) Buzz cut ($25+)

Treat customers to a buzz-cut service, which involves cutting the hair to a uniform length all over the head. Please specify the length options and whether they include a neck shave and styling.

7) Edge up ($15+)

Perform an edge-up service to clean the hairline and neck perfectly. This maintenance service helps clients maintain a defined shape between haircuts and can generate extra revenue.

8) Straight razor neck shave ($20+)

Provide a straight razor neck shave service, where you shave the neck area with a straight razor. You can add it to haircuts or offer it as a standalone service. It leaves the skin smooth and is a unique offering.

9) Boy's haircut ($20+)

Cater to your younger clientele with a boy's haircut service, which may be a simpler version of your men's haircut. Explain the age range it's for and whether the price varies by age. Consider offering a discounted rate for boys' haircuts compared to men's.

Premium barbershop services, bundles, and packages

Increase your appointment value and help clients look their best by bundling complementary services together for premium appointments.

10) Premium haircut ($50+)

Indulge your clients with an upgraded version of your classic haircut, which may include additional services such as a scalp massage, hot towels, or premium hair treatments. Clearly explain what distinguishes it as "premium" from the classic cut, providing customers with a superior choice that increases the average ticket prices.

11) Luxury haircut experience ($75+)

Delight clients with an ultra-premium haircut service that includes a private room, champagne, personalized consultation with a master barber, scalp massage, hot towels, a bespoke haircut, and a take-home hair care kit. Clearly outline the luxurious touchpoints to justify the premium price.

12) Straight razor shave & face mask ($50+)

Enhance your straight razor shave with a luxurious face mask—charcoal detox, moisturizing, or soothing aftershave balm. Apply before or after the shave, and let it work while you complete the service.

13) Beard design & conditioning ($40+)

Premium beard service includes trimming, shaping, conditioning, beard oil massage, warm towel wrap, leave-in conditioner application, and detailed styling for a polished look.

14) Hair color consultation & application ($100+)

Provide a personalized consultation to discuss the client's desired color, such as partial highlight, full color, or men's hair painting. Use high-end, long-lasting hair color products.

15) Royal shave & scalp massage ($60+)

Elevate your shave service with a luxurious scalp massage using warm oil or lotion in circular motions to relax the client. This adds a spa-like element to the traditional shave service, finished with a soothing aftershave balm application.

16) Signature package ($150+)

For high-ticket returns, create a premium package service that includes a luxurious haircut, straight razor shave, beard trim, and other spa-like treatments, such as a hot towel wrap, scalp massage, or facial. Market it as a "pampering day" for the modern gentleman. You can justify these higher prices by providing detailed services in your online booking process.

17) Father and son package ($50+)

Family-friendly barbershops can lean into this angle by offering a father-and-son package cut. Whether for the convenience or the bonding experience, these services provide an incentive for clients to double book their appointments. You may consider offering this service year-round or seasonally — such as near Father's Day and other significant family holidays.

Creative or trending services

You can flex your creative muscles while boosting profits by leveraging the latest trends in barbership services.

18) Design haircut ($50+)

Offer a design haircut service where you cut custom designs into the hair using clippers and razors. This unique service can set you apart and increase prices.

19) Hair & beard coloring ($75+)

Offer hair coloring services, including bold, vibrant colors for younger clients using semi-permanent or demi-permanent hair colors.

20) Specialty haircut ($50+)

Consider offering various specialty hair options such as Afros, Dreadlocks, Mohawks, Fades with Designs, Undercuts, or other unique styles. Clearly outline these specialty options in your menu and consider charging extra for more complex designs. Detail the service process, including consultation, shaping, styling, and aftercare advice. Additionally, consider offering premium add-ons such as hair treatments or styling products.

Setting barbershop service prices

Setting barbershop service prices involves considering several factors. Here's a guide to help you set fair, competitive, and profitable prices.

Calculate your costs

Calculate all expenses to set a minimum price, including fixed costs like rent, equipment, insurance, and supplies, and variable costs such as employee wages and commissions.

Research the competition

Research the prices of similar services at local barbershops. Visit their websites, call for pricing, or even go undercover to experience their services. This will give you a baseline for competitive pricing.

Consider your geography

Location greatly affects pricing. Urban areas support higher prices than rural areas. High-end neighborhoods can command premium prices. Consider the target demographic's income and spending habits.

Factor in your reputation

You can command higher prices if you're an experienced barber with a strong reputation. Consider your qualifications, years of experience, and client reviews. Offering premium services or using high-end products can also justify raising prices.

Service configurations

The configuration of your services impacts pricing. Are you offering a la carte services or packages? Packages often provide a discount for booking multiple services at once. Consider the time, skill, and products required for each service.

Test and adjust

Once you've set your prices, you may consider testing them with a soft launch. With this approach, you can monitor client feedback against your profit margins. This lets you adjust prices up or down based on demand and profitability.

The importance of descriptive service menus

The first interaction potential clients have with your barbershop is your service menu. A descriptive menu is crucial for attracting new clients and ensuring customer satisfaction. Here's why a detailed service menu is essential.

  • Extra revenue and upselling: A well-crafted menu can boost average order values through premium services and add-ons. Detailing luxurious elements justifies premium pricing and encourages upgrades. A clear menu helps the front desk upsell and recommend services, boosting revenue.

  • Transparency: Clients are eager to understand what they can anticipate from their appointment. A menu clarifies services, techniques, products, and expected results. This builds trust and reduces miscommunication or disappointment.

  • Customer satisfaction: Clear expectations lead to satisfaction. A detailed menu ensures clients book the right service, increasing satisfaction and loyalty. Satisfied clients are more likely to return and refer others, growing your business.

  • Attracting new customers: Search engines like Google crawl your website content, including your service menu, to understand your offerings. The more descriptive your menu is, the higher you'll rank in search results. You can learn more about

  • Establishing your unique selling proposition (USP): A descriptive menu highlights what sets your barbershop apart, like premium products, proprietary techniques, or a luxurious atmosphere. It communicates your USP, attracting clients seeking a unique experience and justifying premium pricing.

The best way to manage your service menu is with an intelligent barbershop software system.
