Running your own hair salon – business tips from Richard Ward

If you’re a salon owner, or dream of opening your own one day, then take a look at this short, inspirational video from Richard Ward (for the Hairdressing Council) on how to run a successful hair salon.

Only just published, this video features Richard talking about how he started out as a salon owner buying a business from the Receiver making a loss of £4,000 per week.

He and his wife Helen couldn’t afford a cleaner and used to come in before 6.00am to clean and sweep before opening for business. Two years, and a lot of hard work later they had turned the salon business around and were starting to make a small profit. Richard stresses that success doesn’t just happen – salon owners need to focus on really making their business work.

If Richard’s success and practical advice inspire you to grow your salon then take a look round our specialist salon marketing and business blog.

Richard ends with this advice: “This industry can offer you everything that you desire as long as you’re prepared to work for it”.
