By Larissa Macleman | 09 June 2021

Let’s face it, being a Salon Owner is challenging at times. It’s not something you instantly know how to master, it takes a lot of learning and adjusting along the way.

Your Guide to the Ultimate Salon Takeover!

By Larissa Macleman | 02 June 2021

I’m sure at one point or another, you’ve thought about expanding your Salon business, but have you ever thought about taking over a Salon that already exists? 

This may sound scary, after all being the new face to a Salon environment and not knowing what to expect isn’t something we particularly like.

Even if you are the leader, you still feel the pressure of making a good impression…

In order for people to cooperate, they need to trust and respect their leader.

There are so many important factors to consider when purchasing a Salon, but I think one of the most important ones is your team.

In order to lead them well, you need to understand who they are.

The reality is, the Salon team is already established and you are walking in expecting them to follow your lead. 

So how do you take over a team the right way? Well, today I’m chatting with Vivo founders James & Lynden who have done this. Owning over 90 successful Salons across New Zealand, they share their insights into what it takes to do so. 

So let’s tune in to hear what they have to say…

BREAKING: The Success of Your Salon Begins with You

By Larissa Macleman | 26 May 2021

What if I told you that the key to growing a Successful Salon is as simple as looking in the mirror? 

Now, I’m not saying that your dream Salon will magically appear if you look at yourself in the mirror and say ‘Tabitha’ three times. What I am saying is that you are the one who determines if your Salon is a success or not. 

I know it’s easy to get caught up in external factors like your team underperforming or clients no longer making bookings…

But, as Salon Owners, what we forget is that this is all in our control. 

Why don’t you like the way your team performs? Why aren’t clients making bookings? 

Really think about it…

Want to know the answer? Find out in this episode where I chat with Wayne Mullins. Wayne will share his insights on what it takes to really own a Salon and its success.

So give it a listen and really capture what he has to say.
