actually, yes. There are some expat hairdressers in Shanghai and as soon as the word gets out, the ladies come a runnin. At least to check it out. I would check pricing here (might match or even exceed home levels) and maybe peep what the Chinese ladies are into. I do know that they love Japanese hairdressers, and are always down for something new.
Hairdressers can make a lot of cash, also. I met a Japanese male stylist through a friend recently who charges something like 600 yuan per session. People are willing to pay it, too. One challenge might be how to market your service to upscale Chinese, though. I think both men and women are potential customers, a lot of Chinese guys take their hair seriously. At Natooke bike polo last Saturday I was introduced to a young Chinese fellow who gets his hair permed at a salon everyday. His hair looks as over the top as you’re thinking.
Yeah. That kid’s nuts! He spends 30-45 minutes every day at the salon to get his hair done up. I asked his buddy how much each session costs and did a rough tally and he alone spends about 4000 yuan annually on his hair.
