It can be annoying to go into a salon and see that men pay much less than their female counterparts do. It’s frustrating because not every man has a short cut that requires minimal maintenance – some have long, sumptuous locks. So, why should he pay much less than she does, if it’s the hair’s the same length? And the same goes for women who have short, cropped hair. Why are they paying more than a dude with a short cut?
Well, thankfully there’s a trend emerging in some salons, where gender is simply out of the equation. In short, you pay based on the length of your hair, which seems very fair to us.
Most recently, we talked to Jennifer Storey, one of the owners of the Edmonton-based Adara Hair and Body Studio that’s making the change to gender-neutral. She says that most people have been very receptive to the upcoming change, which will eliminate the $35 for men, $55 for women model.
