If you are without a bowl, you can still offer a wonderful add-on scalp massage for a small upcharge. Spray the hair with warm water to moisten; pat with a towel; apply a generous layer of nutrient-rich scalp serum, working it into the hair with the fingertips; moisten hands with grape seed oil and antioxidants then massage it into the scalp; and wrap the hair in a heated towel. Clients may leave with the nutrients in their hair or if your facility has a shower, they may shampoo and finish with a strengthening peptide spray.

Stand out

The more expertise and specialized services you can offer your clients will make you stand out among the competition—one of the most essential components of client retention. Offering scalp treatments is an excellent place to start. Not only are scalp services fairly unique, they may also prove to be in high demand in your facility.
