Salon visits as a man

bobbybobby Registered Users Posts: 785 Curl Connoisseur
Since I started wearing my hair longer about 10 years so as to let the curls grow, I started going to beauty salons instead of barber shops. For a while I'd just go for haircuts but now I only get trims (maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch) but I go every couple weeks to have the little hairs on my neck cleaned off and sideburns evened. I also have it shampooed and styled while there. Once a month, I get perm rod sets to give the natural curls a different pattern and more volume. At first, as a guy, I felt awkward. Now I don't even think anything of it and don't get the sideways looks I thought I would get.

    I don't think it's unusual to see a guy getting his hair done at a salon.  I don't see a lot of men, but some.  And at a salon you get the hair wash, and usually a scalp massage - that's the best part!

    From what I am told, it is not super common for guys to get their hair at salons but it has become more mainstream.

    @Kinky Curly-Coily Megan there guys that go to salons but it's more for the high and tight clipper cuts. I'm one that goes to get beautified.
