Helping your business grow and prosper
The Business of Hairdressing
If you are running a hair salon you will know the amount of administration and management involved that keeps you from doing what you really love - styling hair and engaging with customers. In this respect you are no different from any other business owner or franchisee, striking a balance between on the shop floor and off the shop floor activities. Running a hairdressing salon, you might come up against any number of issues including:
- Health & Safety
Failure to be on the right side of any of these from a legal perspective could lead to financial penalties and having to spend even more time resolving issues that could have been avoided had proper and prompt advice been sought. Our team has been involved in this sector for many years. Our involvement goes beyond just advising salon owners on their legal responsibilities. One of our team is an invited judge at the annual British Hairdressing Awards!
The convergence between hair salons, beauticians and spas, issues around chair rental and the like suggest a dynamic market. Salon owners need a service from lawyers who know their market and can tailor a service accordingly.
We are able to provide to salons an initial free audit of their current health & safety and HR procedures, providing them with a report, again free of charge outlining where a salon might be at risk of non-compliance, the degree of risk and possible penalties, together with recommendations to remedy the situation. As this requires a site visit by a member of our team, it is limited by travelling time involved. A more limited health check may be possible over the telephone.
