In this post, you’ll learn 101 service and product ideas for your hairdresser business.
If you’ve just got your free trial of BookOm, our online booking system, and you’re a hairdresser, below are 101 services and products that you could add to your appointment booking page.
The “intro” for your appointment booking page is important. So, I thought I’d start this post by giving you real life examples of what other hairdresser write as an “intro” on the top of their appointment booking page.
Appointment Booking Page Intro Example 1
Bookings can be made for all of our services here or by calling the salon on [Add Your Number Here] and we will be more than happy to book you in for an appointment. If you are a new customer booking in for a colour appointment, please book in for a free colour consultation where we can also carry out a patch test.

Our prices are based on hair length & stylist levels.
All colouring services require a consultation & skin test before booking!
Our colouring prices do not include the price of a ‘Cut & Finish’ or styling afterwards.
Corrective colour work will be priced per hour on consultation.

Product Ideas For Your Hairdresser Business
Product add-ons are a quick and easy way to increase your profits throughout the year. You can sell shampoo, conditioner, mirrors, and much more from your online booking system (as “add-ons” when the customer books into a hair appointment).
With BookOm, our online booking system, you can offer gift cards during the appointment checkout process.
Buy shampoo at wholesale price, and sell at a retail price. This one is obvious, but surprisingly a lot of hairdressers don’t sell shampoo.
Make & Sell Your Own Home-made Shampoo
If you have a bit of arts and craftness following in your blood, you’ll probably want to make your own shampoo. It’s a lot of fun, and more profitable than purchasing shampoo from wholesalers.
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup Castile vegetable-based liquid soap like Dr Bronner’s
- 1 teaspoon light vegetable oil or glycerine (omit if you have oily hair)
- A few drops of your favourite essential oil (optional)
Combine ingredients, mix well, and put in a recycled shampoo bottle. Use a palm-full of the shampoo or less to lather once, and then rinse with warm water. This homemade shampoo is thinner than commercial shampoo and it won’t sud as much — but it will eliminate oil and grime just as well as the over-the-counter stuff.
Make & Sell Your Own Home-made Herbal Shampoo
People will pay more for herbal shampoo. For a naturally scented shampoo, go for a scented castile soap, or substitute ½ cup strong herbal tea (e.g. chamomile, lavender, and rosemary) for water in the Basic Shampoo recipe.
Make & Sell Your Own Home-made Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo
Put a few tablespoons of baking soda in the bottom of a repurposed squeeze bottle, top it off with hot water, and shake it well. You can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, too, for scent.
After it settles for a few minutes, apply ¼ cup to wet hair, work it through with fingers, and rinse it out.
There are no suds, but this homemade mixture leaves hair clean and shiny. Follow that with this basic rinse recipe: Mix ½ cup of apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice with two cups water. Pour it through your wet hair and rinse with cool water.
Buy conditioner at wholesale price, and sell at a retail price. This one is obvious, but surprisingly a lot of hairdressers don’t sell conditioner.
Make & Sell Your Own Conditioner
You can use any of the following vegan ingredients in combination or alone: olive oil, coconut oil, yoghurt, mashed banana, or mashed avocado. Tell your customers to massage your home-made conditioner into wet hair, wrap it all up turban-style in a towel for 20 minutes, and rinse well.
