Suite Rental Salons vs. Team-Based Salons

It’s no secret that suite rental salons are becoming more and more popular. As a Salon Owner, you probably already know this.

Now, I know it may appeal to many, but is it more beneficial than having your own team?

This is something I get asked a lot by Salon Owners… it’s confusing to know which option is right for your Salon!

So, I wanted to chat with someone who could shed light on this question and give their honest answer to it, to help Salon Owners know if ditching team-based Salons is the right choice.

Jason Everett currently runs the ‘High-Performance Salon Academy’ in America, where he works with many Salon and Beauty companies across the world.

In this episode, Jason will share with you his amazing insight on what works, and what doesn’t in both salon suites and team-based salons, so you can feel confident in which option is best.

How to Get a Winning Team Culture- Once and for All

Do you ever feel like you constantly want MORE for your Salon? 

Whether it’s team growth, self-mastery as a CEO,  or more sales….

I’m pretty sure every Salon Owner knows this feeling!

But achieving these things sometimes feels impossible. Especially if you don’t know the right steps to take in order to actually achieve them.

Even with all of the external advice out there these days, it’s still hard to know who to trust and if any of it will actually work… believe me, I know this feeling well. 

So I took myself back and remembered what I really needed when I was a Salon Owner… and then it hit me!

I needed someone to show me what was possible… and I mean really possible, for my business, and for me as a Salon Owner. 

Someone who had walked the unknown road ahead of me, and been successful…

In this episode, I wanted to do the same for you. That’s why I’ve invited Skye, from my Salon Mastery Program, to chat with me. 

Skye has owned her Salon for 10 years and has grown the business into a huge success,  so now she’s going to show you how she did it (so that you can do the same!)

2 Hacks to Leading a Growing Team

Growing your Salon: it’s challenging. Can you relate?

Things are forever evolving in Salons; Owners have to constantly adapt systems and processes. Just like any evolution, things start to break. Perhaps what worked before, no longer will. Adapting is not always easy, but it does teach us fundamental lessons in return. Lessons, which I believe, are key to any successful Salon growth. 

If you’re anything like I was, you never feel like your Salon is ‘complete’, always striving for improvement – and that’s great! Improving, however, means things can’t stay the same. There have to be constant shifts from ‘norm’ to ‘new’.

Here at Salon Owners Collective, we could not relate more to this. That’s why I’ve decided to bring in one of my very own –  team leader and operations manager, Suzy.

Having been with us for over 3 years now, she’s witnessed and learned so many valuable lessons while helping grow the business to where it is today.

She’s chosen to share her two biggest lessons around team management which I know any Salon Owner will find helpful. 

How To: Achieve your Dream Salon!

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.

There are so many things to nail when it comes to running a Salon, from the team to the clients and sales. 

So wouldn’t it be nice to have some simple yet effective advice from someone who’s tackled these aspects themself?

Well today I’m chatting with Mhairi McQueen. Mhairi is a member of my Salon Mastery Coaching Program, and has been in the industry for over 20 years and owned her own Salon for 5 of them.

Having seen amazing results in her salon, she’s filled with many tips on how to achieve them. How amazing that she’s chosen to share them with us!

Let’s tune in and see what advice she has in store for us…

Your Guide to the Ultimate Salon Takeover!

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…
