Despite the uncertain economy or even Brexit (!), hair never stops growing and people will always need high quality haircuts at reasonable prices, so there will always be a demand for hair salons. If you’re an aspiring hairdressing salon owner, you realistically have two options; either can invest in a franchise or start up on your own. Regardless of which route you choose, owning and managing a hairdressing salon is extremely exciting and rewarding, but does involve an enormous amount of hard work and planning.
If you decide to go it alone, you’ll need to think about your business plan, find the right premises, learn all the legalities, create your brand, manage your marketing and promotional activities, recruit staff, create staff training programmes and more.
If this all sounds incredibly daunting and too much for you to take on by yourself, don’t be disheartened, as investing in a franchise with AFA Member, Just Cuts, could be the ideal solution for you.
What is Just Cuts?
Just Cuts aims to bridge the gap between the traditional barber shop and full salon. It was founded in Australia in 1982 by Sydney salon owner, Denis McFadden, who turned a simple idea into a business concept that would change the hairdressing industry forever! He decided to run a promotion offering a simple, ‘no-appointment, $6 Style Cuts™ cut’. His customers’ response to this concept was outstanding and Just Cuts was born.
In 1990, the first Just Cuts franchise opened at Engadine in Sydney, a salon that’s still successfully owned by the first ever Just Cuts franchisee. Just Cuts has since grown to be the largest hairdressing salon business in the Southern Hemisphere, with branches across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. With a fixed price for a haircut, regardless of whether it’s a trim or a complete restyle, Just Cuts also offers various add-on services, such as professional treatments and blow waves, but does not offer colouring or chemical work.
Just Cuts operates a simple, no-appointment no-request system. Clients simply choose a convenient salon and drop in when it suits them. Prices are pre-set and clearly displayed, so there are no surprises or hidden extras.
What does the franchise package include?
As a Just Cuts franchise owner, you’ll receive all the benefits of joining a trusted, household brand that has been franchising for over 26 years. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by the Franchise Relationships Institute, franchisee satisfaction with the Just Cuts™ System was rated higher than any other franchise group in the benchmark.
You will have all the business, marketing and operational guidance you need, even once you’re up and running. The benefits include:
- Access to an excellent business model, which incorporates superior operational, ordering and marketing systems to ensure you have a ready-made, proven system that will work and keep on working for your business
- Initial and ongoing training and expert mentorship
- Dedicated Academy Team to guide and support you throughout your entire franchise journey
