Well-crafted service menus can help beauty salons attract new clients and increase appointment value. Every detail — pricing, service names, and descriptions — helps communicate who you are and the value you offer to clients.

Let's explore popular beauty salon service ideas, add-ons, pricing recommendations, and other tips to help you curate the perfect menu.

Core beauty salon services

There are a few signature services clients may expect to find in your beauty salon. By clearly defining these core beauty salon services, you open your books to a wider range of potential customers. This transparency helps clients make informed decisions and highlights the value of your offerings.

1) Professional makeup application ($150+)

Consider outlining these details in your service menu and prompting clients to choose additional options, like false lashes or airbrush makeup.

2) Brow shaping ($30+)

Brow shaping is a fundamental service that includes consultation, trimming, waxing or threading, and finishing touches. Your menu should outline each step of the service to help clients understand its value. Mention optional add-ons, such as brow tinting or lamination, for clients to consider.

A standard women's haircut service usually includes a consultation, shampoo, cut, and blow-dry styling. Listing these components helps clients see the full value and consider additional treatments like deep conditioning or color services.

6) Custom spray tanning ($60+)

Spray tanning offers a quick and safe way to achieve a sun-kissed glow. A custom spray tan includes a consultation to choose the right shade and the application of the tanning solution.

15) AI skin analysis and treatment recommendations (Pricing varies)

AI-driven skincare analysis and treatment technologies offer personalized recommendations for individual skin concerns.

16) AR makeup try-on sessions (Pricing varies)

Provide clients with an augmented reality (AR) makeup try-on session, allowing them to virtually test different makeup looks before their appointment. These tools can help clients make more informed decisions and ensure they are satisfied with their final look. While traditional makeup face charts might still be more reliable and accessible for most beauty salons, this could be an exciting addition to your service menu with the right technology.

17) Exosome Treatments ($200+)

Exosome skin therapy is becoming a popular non-invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation. This advanced service uses exosomes to enhance the efficacy of microneedling and laser treatments, promoting healing and youthful skin.

It takes time and patience to remove old extensions without causing damage. You can offer lash extension removal as a standalone service or an add-on for new extensions.

Offer a spray tan contouring add-on to enhance your tanning services. This technique highlights the natural contours of the body, giving clients a more sculpted and defined look. Pair this add-on with a standard spray tan service for a comprehensive tanning experience.

Customizing service options

Customizing and clarifying service options in your beauty salon menu can provide tailored experiences while managing appointments and pricing effectively. Here are some examples:

25) Brow shaping styles ($0 - $15+)

Various brow shaping styles are included in the basic service price, such as natural, arched, and straight options. Collecting this information during online booking helps prepare for each appointment.

More intricate styles, such as feathered or ombré brows, require additional time and expertise. In these cases, you can add a fee for the specialized brow shaping and extend the service duration to ensure your schedule remains efficient.

26) Lash extensions by length, material, and volume ($100 - $300+)

Lash extensions come in various lengths, shapes, materials, and volumes, and clients may have specific preferences they would like to see reflected in your service menu. Standard sets are often offered at no extra cost. However, for extra-long lashes, pricier materials, or high-volume sets, you can charge an additional fee. For example, you may offer:

  • Silk, mink, or fox full sets

  • Volume full sets

  • Hybrid full sets

  • Fill-in services

27) Hair styling techniques ($0 - $100+)

Basic haircuts and styling techniques, such as blunt cuts or simple layers, can be included in the standard service price. To customize the experience, collect details about the desired style during the booking process.

However, advanced techniques like balayage, intricate braiding, or specialty cuts require extra time and higher pricing. With Service Customizations, your booking system will automatically adjust the price and allocate the necessary time and skill for these services, ensuring high-quality results and maintaining an organized schedule.

28) Makeup application preferences ($0 - $75+)

Offering clients customized makeup enhances their experience. Standard looks like natural or daytime makeup are included in the base price.

For elaborate looks like evening glam or special effects makeup, an extra charge may be added for the additional time and products. Collecting this info during booking helps prepare and provides transparency for clients.

29) Tanning upgrades ($0 - $20+)

Tanning services can be tailored to client preferences. Standard spray tans or single-coat applications are part of the basic service. However, you can increase the service value for upgrades like double coats, rapid tans, or contouring tans. This customization ensures the appropriate time and resources are allocated for the desired results.

Beauty salon memberships and packages

By offering memberships and packages, you can provide consistent value to clients and generate steady, recurring income for your salon. These options build client loyalty and encourage repeat visits.

Setting beauty salon prices

Setting beauty salon prices involves careful consideration of multiple factors to ensure they are fair, competitive, and profitable. Here's a guide to help you set your prices effectively:

Calculate your costs

Calculate all your expenses to set a profit margin price for your services, including:

  • Fixed costs: Salon rent or mortgage, equipment, insurance, and supplies.

  • Variable costs: Employee wages, commissions, and utility bills.

Knowing your total costs helps establish a baseline to cover expenses and make a profit.

Research the competition

Understand your local market by researching prices at nearby beauty salons:

  • Visit their websites.

  • Call for pricing.

  • Experience their services.

This comparison will give you a competitive pricing baseline and help you understand what clients are willing to pay in your area.

Consider your geography

Your location significantly influences pricing. Urban areas typically support higher prices than rural areas. Salons in high-end neighborhoods can charge premium prices. Consider the income levels and spending habits of your target demographic to tailor your prices.

Factor in your reputation

Your reputation is crucial for pricing. Extensive experience and a strong reputation allow for higher prices. Take into account:

  • Your qualifications and certifications.

  • Years of experience.

  • Client reviews and testimonials.

You can also charge higher prices by offering premium services or using high-end products. You can justify the higher prices by adding service details to your online booking process.

Service configurations

Service configurations significantly affect beauty salon pricing. A basic eyebrow shaping is more affordable than a full brow and lash treatment, and a simple haircut costs less than complex hair coloring. Pricing each small service can feel overwhelming, leading some salon owners to offer complimentary add-ons like quick trims or basic treatments.

Extra services can reduce profitability. Even minor ones can affect your time and resources, impacting overall revenue and staff earnings. To manage this effectively, consider having clients book through an online menu detailing every service and cost. This ensures transparency, manages client expectations, and ensures every service is accounted for and fairly priced, no matter how small.

Test and adjust

After setting your initial prices, testing them with a soft launch to monitor client feedback and assess profit margins is wise. You can adjust prices to find the optimal balance between demand and profitability based on the insights gained.

Why beauty salons need a descriptive service menu

Your service menu is part of the client’s first impression of your business. It can inform their service decisions and your business's bottom line. So, let’s explore some ways you can leverage this tool to your advantage.

Extra revenue and upselling

Clients can't pay for services they don't know exist. A descriptive menu can boost appointment values by highlighting premium services and enticing add-ons. Detailing luxurious elements and options justifies premium pricing and encourages clients to upgrade. A clear menu aids staff in upselling and recommending complementary services, boosting revenue.

Beauty service transparency

Clients want to know what to expect from their appointments. A descriptive menu provides transparency by outlining services, techniques, products used, and expected results to build trust and reduce miscommunication or disappointment.

Customer satisfaction

Setting clear expectations leads to higher satisfaction. A detailed menu ensures clients book the right services, increasing their satisfaction and loyalty. Satisfied clients are more likely to return and refer others, helping your business grow.

Attracting new customers

Your online service menu is crucial for attracting new clients. Search engines like Google use it to understand your offerings and connect you with potential customers. The more detailed and descriptive your menu, the higher your salon will rank in search results, driving organic traffic to your site.

Establishing your unique selling proposition (USP)

A descriptive menu highlights what sets your salon apart from the competition, whether it be your experienced staff, premium products, trendy offerings, or luxurious atmosphere. Communicating your unique selling proposition (USP) attracts clients looking for a distinctive experience and justifies higher pricing.

The best way to manage your service menu is with a beauty salon software system that can handle bookings, provide detailed service descriptions, and maintain an organized system.
