A smarter way to grow your salon...

#GrowYourSalon

Owning a hair or beauty salon is great fun and very rewarding but it can also be hard work and tough at times. I know. I spend most of my days in and out of salons helping owners and managers to market and grow their business.

This blog is here to support and inspire you with practical marketing and business advice specifically for salons and spas. Remember: you are not what has happened to you. You are what you choose to become.
