Daughter in law works in social media especially having to do with entrepreneurial trends.
She told us about a 25 year old woman in Brooklyn who has a hair brushing salon. For $30, women make appointments to have her brush their hair for 15 minutes.
She's booked solid for weeks at a time, mostly with customers who have weekly appointments. She doesn't cut the hair, just brushes it.

Not having hair, I'm lost as to what the experience must be like.

My wife has what her hair dresser calls, mermaid hair, I could see her doing this, I see her comb her hair for 15 minutes, prolly lotta knots in there..

I'm just glad I have hair, not gonna take any chances on combing it or using shampoo, I got this far.

Having your hair brushed is very relaxing. I bit like a massage really.

Having long hair front and back, trust me.. tho I do my own, it feels great.

Still, years ago I knew a gal who had a small salon. While perfectly adequate as a beautician, her repeat customers - and her shop was nearly _always_ full - kept coming as when they were in her chair, she was _completely_ present and made them feel great. She had a touch. Thinking the gal your daughter speaks of is such a one.

That sounds delightfully decadent and calming. I bet the women leave her shop feeling relaxed, with lower blood pressure, and a better outlook on the world. What an amazing idea!

I remember that, with Vitalis, way back when I would go to a civilian barber while in the Navy. It really did feel good. I haven't had a haircut since I was discharged 50 years ago.

In order to really loosen up and get the most out of it a woman would probably have to have another woman do the brushing. One can talk freely about just about anything with a stranger of the same sex.

I used to brush my wife's hair quite often, but she didn't enjoy it very much. Depending on the weather her hair can be a bit frizzy. When it's like that it's hard not to pull it all out.

I could never let someone approach my throat with a straight razor, too hyper-vigilant.

Drybar also received $18.5 million in capital from a group of investors led by San Francisco-based Pine River Capital Management LP in November of same year. Those transactions valued Drybar at between $160 million and $200 million.

In 2008, Alli Webb began a side business called Straight At Home, which provided an in-home hair experience. quickly outgrew the one-woman operation and noticed a "huge hole" in her local market for just blowouts
