Soho-based The Lounge, owned by award-winning session stylist Joe Mills, has launched its new gender-neutral pricing list.
The salon, which has recently undergone a whole new look, has introduced new pricing for services, now based on hair length rather than gender. Removing the traditional male and female service menu, there are now three structures – Short Hair, that is above jaw length; Mid Length Hair for hair that is below the jawline and above the collar bone; and Long Length Hair, for those with longer lengths past the collar bone.
Owner and session stylist Joe Mills, says: “It is something we have been offering for quite a while, but it was time we made our gender neutral pricing official. We have a real cross section of clients coming into our salon and it makes sense to offer services based on hair length. It also means all our clients are paying for the time, expertise and professionalism of our stylists regardless of their gender.
“Our stylists are incredible at short hair as well as long hair and havebeen trained inall forms of haircutting, so updating our service menu made sense.”
The salon, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, has recently undergone a whole new look after a severe flood during lockdown earlier this year. The salon now has a home-home-home feel with comfy seating and a muted colour palette.
