I also agree it seems to cover all cases. Admittedly, "male" and "female"
have almost no "only" values (around 150 each, which is less than 0,5%,
based on the total numbers, not on hairdresser usage). Interestingly,
despite the wiki documentation, we do not actually provide this information
with significant coverage, unisex=yes is leading with 1.8%, then comes
male=yes with 1.6% and female=yes with 0.9%

A quick overpass query in Europe showed 483 hairdressers with both tags,
male=yes and female=yes, in the world it's not so much more (548), about
13% of the unisex values for hairdressers.

While I have never heard about the classic tricoloured poles outside, I
believe we could have an additional style tag to distinguish the
traditional style barbershops rather than a new main tag.
