Where are my perks? (by Suzie)

         This newspaper article talks about a hairstyling franchise that caters to men. It offers "attractive female stylists and other perks," according to the cutline (or "caption") on one photo, and it was compared to Hooters.
       I wonder why so few businesses employ young, attractive men in skimpy clothes to please women. Is it assumed that women are content with a good hairstyle or good food? Are women less interested in hot men who are paid to be nice and serve them?
       The headline on the article is: "... salon does men's hair in a manly manner." Because if you're a real man, you like to play pool, watch sports, etc.
