You’ll have a place to take control and develop your own business. Having full ownership of your diary, booking system and billing. You’ll have direct contact with your clients, giving you ultimate flexibility. 

Full access to a photographic area for showcasing your work and creating amazing social media content. We also have the ‘Studio’, a space you can use to create online content, stage photoshoots, and deliver both remote and face-to-face education.

Supplying your own colour stock that fits with The Hair Salon’s environmental ethos, allows you to use the brands you know and love. 

Receive coaching and support on how to develop your business, surrounded by industry leading stylists to learn from, making the transfer to being self-employed less daunting.
