Beauty Bubbles are springing up all over France, offering consumers a quick and cheap haircut or manicure on the go. The bubbles offer €10 haircuts for men and women in 10 minutes. The cuts are performed on dry hair, saving water and electricity.
Tested in malls and shopping centres, the bubbles were such a success that they started springing up in train stations and supermarkets in Paris, Lille, Lyon and Nice. Carrefour Planet hypermarkets are now installing them so consumers can combine a cheap haircut with the weekly shop.
Taking a chore like a regular haircut and making it time- and cost-efficient has real appeal. Innovation and convenience push all the right buttons, provided that the service is good quality too.
