Salon Services Add On Is your salon in a bit of a rut? Standish is here to help! We’ve rounded up a list of up-and-coming salon services that you should be adding to your business’s roster today.

While there’s nothing wrong with sticking to the tried and true basics that your customers have grown accustomed to, expanding the list of services your salon offers is an easy way to bring new life — and new customers — into your business.

Staple services such as manicures and facials are the foundation to your salon’s success, and will always be your main source of revenue. That being said, customers enjoy trying new things and want to visit salons that offer trendy services they won’t find anywhere else.

Check out our salon service list below for add-on services to include in your salon’s roster

Hair Salons

Hair Salon Add Ons
  • Blow Dry Bar: Drybar has recently put the spotlight on blowouts. For customers who want the celebrity treatment but don’t have a lot of time, offering blowouts at a flat rate price is ideal.

  • Deep Conditioning Treatments: Gone are the days where a simple cut and style will do the trick! Adding deep conditioning treatments to your service roster, such as Kerastase’s line of In-Salon Rituals, will keep your customers happy and their hair healthy.

  • Extensions: With extensions lines of all types available at every price point, it’s a necessary add-on to help your customers achieve the length and volume they desire.

Nail Salons

  • Gel Manicures and Pedicures: Give your customers the no-chip guarantee by offering CND Shellac and OPI GelColor manicures and pedicures.

  • Paraffin Waxes: Revitalize your customers’ feet and hands with paraffin wax manicures and pedicures. Paraffin wax’s ability to lock in moisture and relieve pain will have your customers asking for more than the basics time and time again.

  • Free-Hand Nail Art: Stay on top of the free-hand nail art craze by training your staff to complete the hottest looks, and by offering price consultations based on how significant your customers’ design expectations are.


spa add ons
  • All Natural Treatments: The “all natural” movement is hot right now. Offering all natural treatments, such as vegan or hypoallergenic facials, will cater to a wider audience and make your business stand out as a specialty spa.

  • Specialty Waxing: Customers want to go to one spa for all their waxing needs. Go beyond the eyebrows and legs by offering full-body waxing, from sideburns to bikini line.

  • Massage Variations: Customers want options. Offer variations on your staple massages, such as aromatherapy, hot stone, and prenatal massages.

Additional benefits of these add-on services

On top of the obvious benefit of adding additional revenue to your salon, adding one or more of the above services to your roster will not only set you apart from your competition, but also show your clients that you are dedicated to offering the trendiest and most up-to-date services available.

Including these add-ons will also show your clients that you are committed to offering only the best customer service. Going the extra mile doesn’t take much time or effort, and it will help you to build your client base and generate positive “word-of-mouth” reviews.
