Key Industry Insights

Services on the Move

Thanks to the ebb and flow of industry trends, certain services saw a huge increase in popularity over the course of 2023 – and for other services, a massive decrease was on the horizon. 

In 2023, we saw add-on services like root smudging and Olaplex treatments pop, and subtle hair trends like baby lights shift into the background in favor of bolder looks. By downloading the GlossGenius Self-Care Services & Pricing Trends Report, you’ll get an even deeper dive into service popularity in motion across hair, nails, waxing, esthetics and more.

Pricing Evolves

It’s no secret that raising prices – especially at the start of the year – is a big opportunity for self-care businesses to level up their income. According to the GlossGenius Self-Care Services & Pricing Trends Report, some services saw a larger increase in price than others this year. 

Bridal trials were no longer free, with hairdressers charging for their time by increasing the price of these services by an average of 34%. Small services added up, too – neck trims and bleach root touch ups are on the rise! Even the most tried-and-true services offered by GlossGenius businesses saw significant price changes in 2023. One of the biggest movers? Nail art, which saw an average price increase of 5.44% this year.
