Hairdressing Franchises – A Cut Above The Rest

A Great Business Opportunity With A Hairdressing Franchise

Hairdressing franchises have increased in popularity, many are branded with famous names within the hairdressing sector. A retail franchise is ideal for franchise seekers who are committed to providing a high quality service, are able to offer excellence in customer services within a retail setting. This franchise type can be operated as an owner managed business or perhaps you may decide to invest and would prefer to employ a manager to run the business for you, of course it is not a necessary requirement to have hairdressing experience, as training of the method will be provided.

Many hairdressing franchises are High Street based, and operate via walk-in bookings rather than the traditional pre-booked appointment method. The modern walk-in system, allows more opportunity to fit in customers on demand and cuts out the missed business by customers not showing up for a pre-booked appointment , this enables the franchisee to maximise return on investment.

The walk-in appointment system is proving to be popular in the UK. With busy lifestyles often many potential clients prefer to visit the hairdressers on spec rather wait for a pre booked appointment.

To operate a successful, hairdressing salon location will be key, a high footfall will be vital so locations to consider may include a smart shopping centre or a High Street outlet are ideal. Most franchisors will usually provide support to help find the best location for the franchise.

Some franchised Hairdressing Salons operate a simple fixed price system for each individual service and then up-sell, with an additional up-sell available on luxury salon formula hair care products that many clients choose to purchase to keep their locks in great condition.

A franchise within this retail sector can prove to be rewarding both financially and with a high degree of job satisfaction by making your clients look and feel good.
