Marketing Question For The Gents?

32 posts in this topic

Gents, I've had an idea in my head that just won't go away. I would like to know, how many of you would be interested in a Male Grooming Parlour if it were to come into your area. It would include a whole range of grooming services. Hair, nails, infact every inch of you fellas, including massage service and Steam room etc. And all the staff who carry out the services would be women?

Unless it was free which i appreciate it wouldnt be of course it wouldnt interest me in the slightest. Good luck with it though. :)

You can count me in, I love a good pamper !

There are plenty of salons where the women wash / cut and do the manicures so what would be your USP ? Having said the last manicure I had was done by a gay chap or at least he was very effeminate.

Good luck Louisa

In brum that would fill a nice gap in the market and get my custom. Not sure if it's exactly what you were thinking of but a couple of months ago I was looking for anywhere that did a back sack and crack, discovered a complete shortage of male grooming places with exception of some beauty salons having gone unisex (doesn't appeal to me) and a very pricey spa. So a true male retreat with massage, steam room and grooming sounds like heaven... Where do I sign up :-)

Such places already exist - I used to get my hair cut in a place in Glasgow (The Men's Store) which offered most of those services, and when looking for a hairdresser in Aberdeen recently, I noticed a lot of places offering male grooming. Despite these places existing, I've never used them for anything other than haircuts. However, that might have something to do with the fact that I bite my nails (thus rendering any nail services redundant) and when I need my back waxed, I have a sadistic sister who can do it for me, and I'm perfectly capable of plucking my own eyebrows. Having said that, one website claims that 30% of their business is male grooming, so it's not as if it's a niche market.

Are you talking about back, sack & crack waxing too? It seems to be offered by significantly fewer places, and if I were ever to go to a hair removal professional it would be for that, since I already shave my balls and have wondered about waxing instead. Having all the staff being women is a winner, although it might break some equality laws :P But certainly, I have no interest in having a man waxing my winky.

Oh, and would the massage service have a happy ending? ;)

Funnily enough I was thinking about this the other day. I was thinking that it would be pretty awesome to have a sort of place run by all female staff that were very willing to pamper the guy to his hearts content.

Around London theres loads of these places for females to enjoy, I do not think that I have actually seen such a place for men? Maybe I have not been looking hard enough ha!

I am 99% sure that if happy endings were all included in some packages many men would be queuing up for such a service :rolleyes:

If sex/sexual services were also an available option then I'd be interested, otherwise............not really

Naaa men would never pay for that sorry . There is no USP at all . I know many places that offer these general services to men . If you include the private time , then your just the same as a massage parlour . Nothing unique about it . I too have been trying to come up with something different to offer gents but the bottom line is they want sex . No swings and round abouts just sex . :rolleyes:

If we only wanted sex there would be no forum here for happy ending massages where discussion of full service is banned.

But I'm not sure what's being suggested here, genuine no sex no hand relief male spas, grooming places exist in London and charge full whack. You probably need a large wealthy population to sustain them, so how many could exist out of London I don't know, but there may be a gap in the Market in some large cities (brum/Manchester etc).

If the suggestion is to combine male grooming with sexual services that to my knowledge would be a new business model. IMHO it wouldn't work if full service was on offer as Melissa says men would head straight for the sex, but if it was a grooming/spa style experience with happy ending it might work. On best outcome you would create an indulgent experience of grooming with added sexual tension building up to the happy ending, and customers would never end up questioning if they'd wasted money as they'd have got a facial/manicure... at the same time.

You may also benefit by attracting clientele that feel a massage parlour/sauna is too seedy (in other words make it easier for us men to convince ourselves we're not paying for something sexual, that just happened to come as an extra)

The most similar model I can think of is bubbles who offer genuine sports/therapeutic massages with sauna/jacuzzi option but strictly only hand relief on offer on the sexual side.

Then again you could be thinking of something completely different to either of the above...

Not entirely true, men don't just want sex. But Louisa the service you're thinking of crosses two kinds of chap and in the main you'd be putting each off you by offering services the other one wants. The guys only after pampering will be put off that you offer a fair bit more, and the guys after your more will see no value in pampering.

I know this from experience as I started to realised (when I first stopped escorting, offered naked massage with touching and oral, no oral, then no touching, then put me clothes back on) that at each stage more guys were coming forward seeing me that wouldn't have done so before.

Ok of course I lost some regular clients along the way, I also guess some guys have visited to see if more's on offer on that or subsequent visits when clearly it isn't. But some of the clients I retained, when changing down my services, said before they did feel more intimidated by me because I was naked, or offered oral.

First time I spotted this difference in clients I was attracting, was when I started getting asked for covered oral, and then I got amused by the ones who didn't want to touch. They were the ones who got most 'off' of all... and I wanted to explore that.

And for the big bit, as the kind of client changes (only just so many guys from here or the other place will visit, high to start with, you're new, then only the faithfuls or those fancying a change) you'll need to think of other places to advertise.

Whether you want to reduce the services you offer, or not, in my opinion it's not sustainable to offer both.

That would be under the discretion, of the lady who is massaging! ;)

Sorry you are wrong here Melissa. I don't offer sex and I make a very good living from men, without a single swing or roundabout in sight!

I am not sure why you have rolled your eyes, maybe you don't see very clearly.

Hey Louise

Dee offers all kinds of services for gentlemen, might be worth getting in touch to see how it goes! http://www.warwickshiremalegrooming.com/

I know Ella in York is able but not sure how much she pushes that side other than massage, woman of all tricks that one!

I’m not too sure on whether this is a good idea or not! It seems overly indulgent to me. I like the idea of it but would probably only use it as a service once in a blue moon, I doubt it would be a regular monthly thing. I guess looking at it like that it doesn’t seem like a viable business option to me, if other customers are like me you wouldn’t get much repeat business. And how exactly would it work? Pay for an hour and within that time sample whatever you want? If I was to pay say £100 for an hour and 10 minutes went on waiting for a haircut I wouldn’t be pleased! I guess you could spend that time sampling a different service (which I admit sounds better than watching a bloke get his hair cut while you wait), but then you wouldn’t want someone to walk in and bother you with the hair cut. I think it would be a niche thing at best.

I like the hair grooming, massage service (hopefully B2B)and steam room. The rest; nails and other parts grooming, not really. And obviously only if the staff are women. :)
