HOW TO GET MORE PEOPLE TO TAKE UP YOUR SALON PROMOTION

March 18, 2019

The final piece in our social media promotion blog series is probably the one that we find salon owners struggle with the most. Amplification, or how you communicate your promotion to your chosen target audience. Whether that’s social media, email marketing, PR, advertising, printed mail outs, Google Adwords, in-salon sales – whatever your communication plan […]

GET YOUR TEAM ON BOARD FOR A GREAT SALON PROMOTION

March 4, 2019

Running a salon promotion sounds great in theory, until you get into your salon and look at all the different areas that need to be integrated for it to work. From your online booking system to salon system and training your staff, it’s enough to make you put a promotion into the ‘too hard’ basket. […]


HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR SALON PROMOTION IS PROFITABLE

February 25, 2019

We are excited to share this next post in our series on How to Run a Great Salon Promotion with you, as feedback from our members tells us that this is the area that they struggle with most – profitability. As most salon owners saw during the Groupon days, a poorly planned promotion can be […]


CHOOSING A TARGET MARKET FOR YOUR SALON PROMOTION

February 18, 2019

Next in our Salon Promotion series is a discussion about target markets and how to define them and develop an offer that will target them specifically.   Your target market is key to any promotion and is typically defined as your ideal customer. Whether that’s based on age, gender or service type, you need to […]


GETTING THE TIMING FOR YOUR SALON PROMOTION RIGHT

February 11, 2019

As we continue in our series on how to run a profitable salon promotion, we need to talk about timing. Its early enough in the year that most salon owners have enough time to plan out their promotions, bearing in mind key dates in the calendar year, and get the timing just right. Because the […]

HOW TO RUN A SUCCESSFUL SALON PROMOTION

January 28, 2019

Promotions are often the icing ontop of the cake for a salon business. They mark key sales periods during the year, they attract new customers and give you something great to be talking about on your social media platforms. But with poor planning, they can become a huge strain on your salon team and simply […]


AUSTRALIA DAY PUBLIC HOLIDAY 2019

January 21, 2019

As salons and staff are getting back into the swing of things post-Christmas, it sometimes seems counter intuitive for Australians to have another public holiday so soon after the Christmas and New Year Break. And this year, Australia Day is a particularly tricky one for salon owners to navigate due to the way the holiday […]


NEW YEAR, NEW TRAINING

January 14, 2019

After the crazy Christmas period, most salons experience a bit of a slowdown in January. It’s no surprise really, when all your clients have been in salon in December, they aren’t likely to need a hair colour or bikini wax for at least 6-8 weeks – and that typically takes us into February before appointments […]


NEW YEAR, NEW SALON POLICIES

January 7, 2019

In the rush leading up to Christmas, we all get distracted. Little things fall by the wayside, the small details of the day to day running of your salon just aren’t as important as the more pressing needs of leave, staff breaks and getting through the Christmas appointments. But come January, when salons are typically […]


STAFF MEAL BREAKS IN YOUR SALON THIS CHRISTMAS

We’ve been talking for weeks now about how it’s the busiest time of year in salon, and it’s certainly not getting any better, right? We are hearing from our members that this silly season, clients seem sillier than ever with last-minute hair appointments, emergency waxing and everything in between happening in December.   At this […]

REWARD YOUR STAFF THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON

December 10, 2018

The Christmas period is one of the busiest for salons and salon owners – whether it’s clients wanting to get their nails and tans done ahead of summer or clients coming in for an extra blow dry ahead of their work Christmas party, it’s always one of the busiest periods of the year. And for […]


PAID OVERTIME FOR HAIRDRESSERS + BEAUTICIANS

December 3, 2018

As we hurtle into December, Christmas season is in full swing for the Hair and Beauty Industry.

NEW APPRENTICE WAGE SUBSIDIES – What salon owners need to know.

November 12, 2018

Salon owners know that the cost of an apprentice far outweighs the benefits, at least for the first few years. Between the time invested in training, the cost of schooling and supplies, choosing to take on an apprentice is not something to be done lightly or without considering the bottom line of your business. In […]


Would you trust a doctor with no qualifications?

November 5, 2018

SPONSORED BY SOLAIRE It seems slightly dramatic… but we’re guessing you wouldn’t! So why should your client spend their hard-earned money being spray-tanned by an unqualified therapist? At Solaire®, we’re proud to offer high quality accredited spray tan training. As industry experts, we decided to put together some information on the subject of spray tan […]
