Salon Price Increase Notice: Sample Letters & Free Templates

salon price increase notice

Let’s explore price increase notices for hair and nail salons, spas, and massage businesses along with ready-to-use templates for brochures, flyers, and posters

It is highly recommended that you send the official salon price increase notice at least a month before the effective date of the change to avoid any shocks and miscommunication.

There can be many reasons behind the price increase. Some reasons are voluntary, such as when you

  • are offering upgraded services,
  • have hired new, highly qualified staff,
  • are providing luxurious ambience,
  • have bought the latest machines and instruments, etc.,

and you feel you deserve the price raise.

While some reasons are involuntary and salons owners are indulged to increase the prices due to

  • growing inflation,
  • employee pay raise,
  • high rent and lease expenses,
  • renovation and capital expenses, etc.

In this article, we have included four examples of price increase notices for salons and spas. We have also included ready-to-use price increase templates created with Canva that you can customize and use for free. So, let’s begin.

Example 1: Salon Price Increase Notice Due to Upgrades in Services

If you’re increasing the prices because you have

  • upgraded the services, and product quality
  • hired new, more qualified staff
  • introduced new types of services that are not available in nearby salons/spas

here is a price increase notice template for you. The trick is that you should talk about all the improvements you have made before informing customers about changes in the rates to let them feel that the price increase is justified.

Price increase notice wordings

Dear [Customer Name],

We greatly appreciate your love and cooperation that made our ABC spa successful over the last 6 years. This year, we have decided to walk an extra mile to provide you with even better and alleviated level of services.

To accomplish that goal, we have hired 8 new employees with top-level certifications such as LMT, IASTM, and NCTM. We have also included aroma therapy, and massages with rare Ayurveda herbs. With all these changes, we have decided to increase the prices of our services by 8%, effective from August 1, 2022.

We thank you for your understanding and support. As always, we are committed to delivering the highest quality massage and spa services possible.

Example 2: Nail Salon Price Increase Notice

If you are offering unique nail art that your nearby competitors are not providing, if your nail artists are so popular among the customer group that you get a large number of new clients from word of mouth publicity, or you’re planning to increase the nail salon prices because of high inflation, sending a formal notice to regular customers is highly recommended. Here’s a template with a customizable free flyer.

Dear [Customer Name],

Thank you for your support and cooperation in making ABC nail salon successful for all these years. After carefully reviewing the increased costs for nail art products and employee remuneration, we have to make the difficult decision of increasing the pricing of all nail services by 5%.

The new pricing will be effective from August 8, 2022. Before that, you can avail the old pricing. All the online pre-paid bookings made before August 8 will get the benefit of old pricing, irrespective of the appointment date in the future.
