Is your Salon Actually Working?

As an industry, I think we’re still complaining about how this new generation of stylists and therapists is ‘so not motivated’ and “when I was an apprentice I worked harder and longer for less money and more passion”.

Alan Austin-Smith, founder of The Fantastic Hairdresser has his own opinion on this topic and lays it out for us as owners and shares exactly what we should be doing about it!

With 30 years in the hair and beauty business he’s leading the industry and ‘doing business’ just like he started it yesterday – full of fresh ideas and initiatives and ‘taking over the world’ one country at a time.

You’ll love this interview with Alan, its longer than the usual… but worth it as it packed FULL of awesome insights and deep questions to ask your self as a salon business owner.
