hile autumn is traditionally the time when most salon owners gear up for a busy season ahead, January is the month to begin planning for a successful year. That’s why, as The Salon Magazine team begins 2013, we’ve been penning our features around this month’s theme: In with the new. It may be a cliché, but January presents the opportunity of a clean slate to everyone and the chance to start again. Even if you had a poor past 12 months (although we’re hoping you didn’t) the New Year brings fresh hope and motivation to succeed. With this in mind, this month we’ve been hunting out all the latest new products and marketing avenues that we hope will help you raise your game. For hair salons, we’ve rooted out the biggest colour system trends so you can decide what you need to invest in now to keep up with competitors. So if you haven’t delved into the world of multi-tasking, natural based, low (or no) ammonia hair colourants, find out why now is the perfect time to take the plunge (page 28). But whatever services you offer, one thing all salons have in common is their ability to make the most of online marketing. With Apple reportedly selling millions of iPads all around the world in the run-up to Christmas, keeping in touch with both potential and loyal clients has never been easier. At the touch of a screen, consumers can search for the best salons in their area – and if you don’t have a strong presence, chances are you are missing out. That’s why this month we’ve enlisted the

expertise of Cocoroco Communications’ Su Clark to help you in your ongoing quest to boost your online appeal (starting on page 52). With the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement closing 2012, we’ve also been focusing on finance this month to kick-start your New Year. Starting from page 39 you’ll find a whole section dedicated to the topic covering ideas on how to invest for success and where to find funding in this tough economic climate. Sponsored by finance company Merchant Cash Express, it highlights the benefits of its Business Cash Advance while aiming to inspire your investment plans for the 12 months ahead. Lastly, regular columnist Stuart Holmes offers his advice on keeping staff motivated this month even if they have the January blues. Whatever time of year it is, it’s important to make your team feel valued. But at the start of a New Year, when they’ve spent all of December rushed off their feet, this sentiment is all the more true. Turn to page 58 to discover how he keeps his team raring and ready to go. We hope you find this issue invaluable in your quest to plan for your biggest 12 months yet. Happy New Year!

Angelo Seminara triumphs as British Hairdresser of the Year for the third time in his career

A

ngelo Seminara was named British Hairdresser of the Year for the third time in his 30-year career last month at a glittering awards ceremony in Central London. Beating off stiff competition from last year’s champion Akin Konizi as well as Errol Douglas, Jamie Stevens, Mark Hayes, Tim Hartley and Mark Leeson, the Italian-born hairdresser’s awe-inspiring entry featured the unusual techniques, colours and textures his photographic collections have become renowned for. Having already won the industry’s most sought-after award in 2007 and 2010, Seminara became art director for Davines Spa in January 2011 while continuing his session and editorial work alongside

Eugene Soulieman. For the next year, the hairdresser plans to continue working on hair shows and exhibitions around the world while also developing an eco sustainable product line. Ever humble, he says: “I am so honoured to have won this award again. I was completely unprepared but also really excited to go up on stage and honour my work and team. I was pleased for all the people that have contributed to make the collection happen and for them to see the images on the big screen.” Compared by David Walliams with entertainment from British musician Labrinth, around 1,700 attendees flocked to the event to applaud the year’s biggest hair stars. This year saw the introduction of

three new members into the prestigious British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame as Terri Kay of Mark Leeson Hair Body and Mind, Hob Salons’ Christel Lunqvist and the group’s Creative Team received recognition for winning Eastern Hairdresser of the Year, British Colour Technician of the Year and Artistic Team of the Year three times respectively. Among the other winners were Tracey Devine from Angels in Aberdeen for Men’s Hairdresser of the Year; Toni and Guy’s Indira Schauwecker took home the award for Avant Garde Hairdresser of the Year; Kieran Tudor of D&J Ambrose in Middlesex was named Newcomer of the Year; while Mark Leeson Hair Body and Mind scooped the title of Artistic Team of the Year.

INDUSTRY UPDATE Chromogenex named on prestigious Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list Non-surgical laser machine manufacturer Chromogenex Technologies has been included in last month’s Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100, which ranks Britain’s fastest-growing private companies. The Wales-based company was the only medical equipment manufacturer listed with other firms including Jamie’s Italian restaurants and Lenstore.co.uk. It has reported overseas growth over the past 12 months and credits the spurt to high demand in the US, Brazil and Australia. CEO Peter McGuinness comments: “We have grown rapidly over the past three years as a result of innovative new products and expansion into new markets such as USA, South Africa, Brazil and Australia. Despite a difficult economic environment we continue to do well in the UK with an excellent marketing and customer service support for our customers.”

Product innovation Sleep In Rollers won its first award last month after scooping the Best New Hair Care Product title at a ceremony organised by retailer trade title Beauty Magazine. Hosted by Denise Van Outen, the newcomer triumphed over innovations from household names.

Since its launch three years ago, the UK Event Awards recognise the UK’s best events, organisers and industry suppliers. L’Oréal had to submit a detailed entry breaking down its ‘hair inspired by fashion’ strategy along with results including press coverage on the BBC Breakfast News. The judging panel, which included LineUp MD Rob Leach, Logistik Group founder Dirk Mischendahl and Altitude 360 London’s marketing director Peter Kerwood, commended organisers for thinking creatively about developing the long established award scheme through modern channels such as social media.

Westrow offers support at Mannings for Macmillian charity fashion event The team at Westrow’s West Park branch in Leeds offered its styling services last month for a charity fashion show in aid of Macmillan cancer support. Held in association with Leeds estate agents Manning Stainton and Mercedes Benz, over 200 guests attended the fashion event – which featured clothes from local retailers – before taking part in a raffle to raise money for the cause. Manning Stainton promised to raise £50,000 in 2012 after MD Russell Manning lost his wife to the disease last year. The donations will be used to fund a Macmillan nurse. On the night the Westrow team was on hand to offer haircare advice as well as on-the-spot styling for guests who each received a goodie bag containing hair care products. Franchisee Laura Procter said: “Lending our services to this year’s Manning for Macmillan event was a wonderful opportunity for the Westrow West Park team. It’s great to give something back; Macmillan is an amazing charity and it was a pleasure to be involved.”

Exilis best in class... Reduce...Shape...Tighten

”I have had the opportunity to try this device on my patients with excellent results. I have now included Exilis in my practice as an alternative to those who do not wish to undergo surgery for contouring and skin tightening.” Dr. Jan Staněk,, London, UK

”We have chosen to include Exilis within our portfolio of treatments as it has been used and is recommended by some of the best cosmetic doctors in the USA. The machine has achieved recognition in several awards including the 2012 TAS Awards in Las Vegas as the Best Skin Tightening Device and we have been very impressed with the initial results on our patients.” Dr. Rita Rakus, London, UK

”Introducing Exilis was an easy choice to make with its extremely fast pain free treatments that reduce fat, sculpt the body, treat cellulite and tighten skin from head to toe. With the choice of target area of up to a 4 cm depth and contact skin cooling for comfort I can see the Exilis becoming the system of choice across the UK!.” Dr. Tapan Patel, London, UK

”Having extensively reviewed the Body Contouring systems currently available, I feel Exilis is unrivalled in its ability to treat both Body and Face, with a combination of technologies including Radio Frequency and UltraSound, to provide consistent results pleasing both patients and professionals. Already a success in the US, Exilis is easy to operate with no costly consumables making it a versatile and exciting machine!” Dr. Clara Russell, Edinburgh, UK

Aberdeenshire’s Elan Hair Design was named Sustainable Business of the Year at the 2012 Chamber Awards. The salon beat off stiff competition from all industry sectors across the UK thanks to owner Gordon and Lorna Milton’s commitment to instilling a culture of sustainability throughout the entire business. Salon consultant Daniel Rouah has been offering his grooming expertise to schoolchildren in a bid to help them get ready for the world of work. Kicking off a tour around the UK, the expert visited 85 sixth form pupils at Winchmore School in North London giving skin, hair care and shaving advice in preparation for interviews. Pembrokeshire College nail technology student Kirsty Bushen received a Samsung Galaxy tablet last month after winning a photographic competition at The Skills Show UK. Competitors across all sectors – including hairdressing, engineering and web design – were asked to submit an image of themselves for use in the opening ceremony that represented their skills to be in with a chance of winning the prize. Hair and beauty marketing expert Angela Kokshoorn was guest speaker at HABB’s latest women’s networking event at the Goldwell Academy in Mayfair. Speaking of her work with L’Oreal, Charles Worthington and Batiste, the now vice president commercial for Collection Cosmetics told attendees how turning dry shampoo into a festival must-have is her most exciting accomplishment to date.

HAIR COLOUR

A colourful future

Ensure your hair colour menu is up to scratch with the industry’s latest formulas

W

DESMOND MURRAY

e’re currently in the midst of a very exciting period for professional hair colour. For the first time in 100 years, the industry has seen a real shift away from traditional ammonia-laden formulations towards gentler products that still yield great results. While many clients tried their hands at home dye jobs at the start of the recession, the industry fought back with improved hi-tech products and techniques that completely outshine the DIY market. And now as momentum spreads, salons are seeing a rise in demand for colour results that clients could never re-create at home. “Consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to treat their hair with respect and are less inclined to take a risk with colour at home,” says Redken Platform Artist Kelly Scott. “They’re finally seeing that hair is the fabric that they wear everyday.” Indeed today’s most coveted colour looks consist of bold block hues, dipdying, highlighting and subtle slicing, which all have to be expertly applied by a professional. And that trend is set

28 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

to continue into this year and beyond. So as colourists become increasingly advanced in their craft, manufacturers are keeping up by launching highly effective formulations that achieve better results than ever before.

Winning formulas Of course the hair colour story of the century is the move away from ammonia towards oil delivery systems (something that Organic Colour Systems pioneered in 1990). Due to expensive ingredients, it took a long time to go mainstream. However, for 2013 and beyond, it’s clearly a route that many brands are going down. Since L’Oreal’s INOA hit the market in 2011 with a global advertising campaign, demand for this new wave of in-salon colour has skyrocketed. “I believe we’re about to see a wider acceptance of more natural alternatives,” says Raoul Perfitt, MD for Organic Colour Systems. “I believe the industry is facing challenging times however by offering clients something different and not available in the high street stores and that offers a huge business advantage.” David Larcombe, Spanish haircare

brand Montibel.lo’s technical manager, agrees, adding: “Current colour product trends are all focused on ammonia-free colour. Clients are phoning and knocking on the door of salons asking if they offer ammonia-free colour. They’ve seen it on the television, they’re interested and they’ve done their homework – so they want a colour that is more gentle and delicate but that still provides great coverage.” Oil delivery technology means that brands don’t need to use harsh chemicals like ammonia to force colour into the cuticle – which in turn causes swelling. “Because oil and water repel, the oil delivery system allows the colour to penetrate so it’s a much gentler way to colour the hair,” explains Scott. Major new launches include Redken’s Chromatics range – which made its debut last year – boasting no ammonia or odour, 100 per cent coverage, strengthening protein extracts and multi-dimensional results. The product is also available in a range of shades that can be customblended for each client (Tel: 0845 600 0815 Redken.co.uk). But it’s not just ammonia (or a lack


HAIR COLOUR WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOUR HAIR COLOUR MENU? of it) that’s steering developers. Today’s multi-tasking formulas are also being enriched with hair hydrating ingredients such as argan oil and shea butter to add protection, suppleness and shine. Spanish brand Montibel.lo’s Oalia Colour System is one such range (Tel: 01264 334 466 Montibello.com). Its luxurious formula gives full coverage while leaving the hair feeling silky soft and regenerated. “Being able to create 100 per cent coverage on grey hair while making the locks healthier and shinier really makes it a real two-in-one multitasking product,” says Larcombe. Another of the company’s recent innovations is its Platiblanc Control bleach that can lift colour by two tones in 20 minutes. This helps create a refreshed blonde or can help remove stubborn colour. “I’ve never come across anything quite like it,” the brand’s expert adds. “If a client has a build-up of colour, the fact that I can just take one layer away is a really great help.” Meanwhile, products like Joico’s K-Pak not only colour and condition, but helps to “reconstruct” the hair so clients are left with healthier looking locks than before (RRP £12.95; Tel: 0845 071 2326 Joicoeurope.com). International artistic director Sue Pemberton says: “It’s great to know that colourists can use a permanent, demi or semi-permanent product that is less damaging to the hair. Joico Vero K-Pak Color makes the hair feel better after colour or a colour correction service. This is because of

the technology in the K-Pak formula; it actually reconstructs as it colours. It’s one of my favourite benefits.” But one of the latest products on the market – set to launch at the beginning of this year – is Affinage’s Infiniti colour range (Tel: 01794 527 111 Affinage.com). Boasting Datem Plus Technology, the system is unique in its use of gentle heat, which accelerates the colouring process to just 25 minutes with no damage to the hair or scalp. As it does contain a very small amount of ammonia (0.2 per cent) the company says it “combines the higher performance and predictability of ammonia-based products with the improved condition provided by a low level.” According to Dr Nicola Summer, director of research and development at the Affinage laboratory in Italy, it is one of the most technologically advanced products on the market. “The Datem Plus Technology that makes it completely unique,” she explains. “Its formulations are more than 90 per cent naturally derived, it gives 100 per cent grey coverage and the hair is left in amazing condition thanks to its conditioning emulsion cream base with shea butter and argan oil.” With ever advancing technology, the hair colour sector is moving forward at rapid speed to meet the needs of today’s clients. So if you haven’t revised your menu to meet the growing demand for natural-based multi-tasking formulas, now is the time to discover a whole new world of colour.

Weekend colour Consider adding semi-permanent options for clients looking to experiment when they’re off-duty. Kelly Scott, Redken Platform Artist and artistic director at Strands Hairdressing, explains: “People are being a lot more experimental with colour at the moment and we’re seeing clients playing around with their shades. Temporary colours that wash in and wash out plus products like colour chalks that pick up on the huge pastel trend have been really flying off the shelves.”

Rapid results In today’s demanding world, many clients find taking three hours out of their busy schedule to visit the salon too much. With this in mind, the experts are predicting a move towards rapid colour services that will appeal to an even wider audience. Sue Pemberton, Joico’s international hair colour artistic director, says: “I feel that services need to be done quicker for the client that is on the go. The future will be about fast, quick and easy techniques for colour. I like to call it, “minimum amount of foils, to create maximum impact”!

Evolving style According to Hob Salons’ Christel Lundqvist, who is also global technical creative director for TIGI, bespoke colour services that evolve with the seasons and fashion trends will be the next stage of the personalised salon hair colour experience. “Clients like change and even if it’s subtle it makes them feel special,” she says. “They wear their hair every day but change their look over the year, so they need advice on evolving their colour. This month I’m launching an education programme and book called TIGI Creative Consultation – a unique system designed to guide stylists in the conversation with their clients using their personal fashion look (or ‘tribe’) as a reference along with skin tone, eye colour and complexion.”

ome say that money makes the world go round. But what if there isn’t a lot of it about? According to recent research by the Cambridge and Counties Bank, in the first half of last year, Britain had 47,777 overdraft and loan applications worth as much as £2.5 billion rejected. And while the government is being proactive with schemes such as the new Business Bank initiative – which is set to start lending later this year – it’s still doubtful that every SME’s borrowing need will be met. The credit issue is of course detrimental to any salon owner that wants to grow their business this year. Without capital, it means many will be unable to refurbish, invest or expand. And while other business types may be able to ride the recession wave without injecting any cash into improvements, clients are expecting more and more from their hair and beauty salon. New client retention rates have fallen from the previous average of 50 per cent

to just 19 per cent over the last decade (source: Phorest). This means that while salons only had to find two new clients a few years ago for one to stay loyal, many are finding that they now need to attract five. According to the statistics, it isn’t just new clients either: existing client retention rates have dropped from 80 per cent to 65 per cent – meaning it’s becoming increasingly difficult to hold on to customers.

EXPANSION Advance, which is an unsecured cash advance of anything from £3,500 up to £150,000. While it’s not the cheapest form of finance, the option offers appealing flexibility as the repayments are based on the salon’s daily credit and debit card transactions. In short, if you have a bad week, they do too. But as your business grows because of the investment you’ve made, so do the repayments – and some salons manage to pay off the advance in a matter of months. You don’t have to fill out endless forms, provide a business plan or jump through various hoops. Instead, you can apply online and MCE can give you a noobligation quote within 24 hours. The main criterion for qualifying for a Business Cash Advance is that you turn over at least £3,500 on cards per month and you can qualify for modest sums of money that banks normally wouldn’t be

interested in lending. Unlike other investors who may want to take a slice of your business in return for injecting capital, the Business Cash Advance doesn’t require you to give away equity. You don’t need to offer security and you don’t need to sacrifice any part of the business. Once SMEs have tried out a Business Cash Advance and have seen how it can help build their enterprise first-hand, the majority apply for another advance to finance their next investment. In fact, 70 per cent of businesses renew their advance with MCE – helping to keep their business flexible, dynamic and ahead of the curve. So whatever your business resolutions are for 2013, your dreams may be closer than you think. It maybe a cliché but often you have to speculate to accumulate. The only question left to answer is: how will you spend yours?

If you’ve ever considered opening a second salon or expanding your current premises so you can service more clients, a Business Cash Advance could provide the capital you need to make it happen.

A saving grace After being priced out of its original premises, Newcastle’s Clayton and Company Hairdressing is still thriving against the odds

P

aul Clayton, owner of Newcastle city centre’s Clayton and Company Hairdressing, says obtaining cash quickly from MCE has been fundamental to the success of his business. Originally located inside an out-oftown gym, his first 12,500sq ft salon was almost put out of business after the landlord implemented a sharp increase in rent. But rather than trying to meet the demand, the owner quickly set about finding another premises. “We re-located within the Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic on Northumberland Street,” he says. “The process took around three months and we obviously had to pay for the move along with tweaking the layout of the new

salon and paying legal fees.” To fund the unforeseen business costs, Clayton decided to contact Merchant Cash Express for a Business Cash Advance – a method he has used two years previously when his original salon needed refurbishing. “They aren’t the cheapest company but they are the best I’ve found in terms of flexibility and convenience,” he says. “We needed money quick and the process is incredibly easy: they take the details over the phone and ask for trade references. Then, a few days later, they come back to say the money is in your account.” Since re-locating last year, Clayton has built an even more successful salon reporting month-on-month growth. And despite being relatively new, the company is rated as the number one hair salon for 15 miles on the Free Index business directory and number 26 nationwide. But while business is booming, Clayton says he is always thinking of improvements and hopes to invest more towards the end of 2013. “At the moment our premises is clean and tidy but to me it does need updating,” he says. “So at the moment we’re working towards refurbishing the space – which will hopefully attract even more customers – and concentrating on boosting the skills of the team.”

Glasgow’s John Irons uses the Business Cash Advance to keep his salon looking the business

alon owner John Irons says being able to refurbish and add little finishing touches to his business is detrimental to the overall client experience. Established for 21 years, Paramount Hair Designs is located on a busy thoroughfare on the outskirts of Glasgow. It employs three stylists and a junior who are regularly inundated with appointments throughout the year – even in the quieter months of January and February. When Irons first heard about Merchant Cash Express’s Business Cash Advance, he decided it would be a good way to obtain the cash flow needed to improve the appearance of his salon. “The look is very important to clients so it’s important to keep on top of it at all times,” he says. “We have had to decorate as well as investing in new furniture and equipment. Christmas decorations in December and fresh flowers throughout the rest of the time are also an investment as clients notice.” Since using MCE’s funding method, Irons has bought a new reception desk, overhead dryers, basins and outside lights – moves he says has helped attract and retain clients. “The team is very helpful

and I like the fact that the repayments are taken daily from my credit and debit card transactions,” he says. “I don’t even miss the money and it means I don’t have to worry about meeting one lump loan repayment each month if business has been a bit slow.” While business is on the up for Paramount Hair Designs, its owner says he will opt for the funding again later this year when his styling chairs need replacing and he refurbishes the salon’s waiting area. “I’d definitely recommend Business Cash Advance as it’s been ideal for me,” he says. “Purely the fact that you don’t miss the money being repaid is reason enough to use it as a viable option.”

Having a blowout Brazilian Blowout offers a long-lasting alternative to relaxants and other harsh chemical straighteners

F

or a long time, the only consistently successful straightening systems that lasted longer than a day were harsh, lye-based relaxants. These became especially popular for home use between the ‘20s and ‘60s when lye was used with potatoes and eggs to calm ultra-curly hair. Today there are some slightly less toxic salon versions that will calm frizzy hair and produce the desired effect, but at what cost? Lye and the other harsh chemicals used in relaxants do a lot of damage over time, making hair even harder to tame. Distributed by the Ganesha Group, Brazilian Blowout provides a line of unique and effective smoothing products that do not destroy hair but promise to help strengthen each strand instead. From professional-grade shampoo to highly effective smoothing treatments and aftercare products, it is one of the most promising systems on the global market.

The process Brazilian Blowout Pro Solution and Brazilian Blowout Zero+, used in combination with the Brazilian Blowout aftercare products, can provide up to four months of smooth hair following one single treatment. The Original Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment takes around 90 minutes to perform in the salon from the first shampoo to the final blow-dry. Meanwhile, the newer Brazilian Blowout Zero+ takes around one-hour. The professional products are applied and activated by a stylist in about 10 steps. Specially formulated Anti-Residue Professional Shampoo prepares the client’s hair for the smoothing treatment. This step may be repeated as many times as needed to ensure the hair is squeaky clean. After a towel dry, the hair is then parted into four sections before the brand’s Smoothing Solution is combed through. The hair is then blow-dried and

straightened using a flat iron to seal in the product. Afterwards, the hair is then thoroughly rinsed before the Brazilian Blowout Masque is applied. Lastly, the Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Serum finishes the treatment before the final blow dry. This process is not dissimilar to relaxants. However, the core of the product is Brazilian Super Nutrient Complex, a proprietary blend of amino acids that fill the cuticle and provide protective protein to create shine, conditioning and silkiness without losing volume as opposed to harsh relaxants that can destroy hair cuticles.

The products In addition to the Original Brazilian Blowout Solution, there is an entire line of Brazilian Blowout products that can help keep the hair straight and smooth for as long as possible. The more recently developed Brazilian Blowout Zero+ uses plant-derived amino acid solution the Kerasafe Bonding System. Many clients with thin or flat hair find that this solution creates volume and big, soft curls stay in their hair longer.

Additionally, the Brazilian Blowout Acai Hair Care aftercare line and new range of volume products help to ensure that the Brazilian Blowout Pro Solution or Brazilian Blowout Zero+ last longer. Key products include: • Anti-Frizz Shampoo • Anti-Frizz Conditioner • Volume Shampoo • Volume Conditioner • Deep Conditioning Masque • Daily Smoothing Serum Styling products include: • Shine and Shield Spray Shine • Protective Thermal Straightening Balm • Instant Volume thermal root lift • Instant Volume body boost powder • Restorative Sculpt and Define Polish Styling and aftercare products use the Brazilian Super-Nutrient Complex, which boasts acai berries and a proprietary blend of healthy compounds that promote smooth hair cuticles. For £425 salons can receive enough product to carry out 34 treatments – offering the potential to make £5,000 – £8,000 in profit. Tel: 0845 862 5110 Ganeshagroup.co.uk

Online marketing, this year’s most promising product launches and planning a successful 2013

Broadening your horizons A

New Year calls for a fresh start and what better way to kick off 2013 than with a revised marketing strategy? While such a move would have needed a hefty cash injection in the yesteryear, today’s internet age means business owners have more access to free communicational tools than ever before. All it takes is a little know-how and some spare time. With this in mind, this month we’re delving into the fast paced world of online marketing and social media to aid you in your quest to get connected…

Head turner Sign up to The Hair and Beauty Groups’ membership scheme and see an influx of new clients

T

he Hair and Beauty Groups have been introducing new clients to independent hair and beauty salons since they launched in 2003. The scheme offers free haircuts and beauty treatments through promotions with high profile brands, online and in national consumer magazines. The leads are then filtered through to the groups’ member salons, which are given the chance to up-sell and retain the clients for future business. Every salon that signs up to the schemes are given area exclusivity and can choose how many leads they receive and when the free services are offered. “All clients generated are local to each particular salon which means it’s an excellent opportunity to build up a solid, regular clientele,” says the company’s CEO Charlie Kaufman. “For you, the salon owner, it means you choose whichever day of the week you want the business and also what level of stylist you want to carry out the treatment. That gives you complete control and motivates newly qualified staff too – they need to build up their client base so it’s ideal for them.”

Growth spurt

promotions which partner with influential household brands across numerous fields including media, online, reward and retail. These promotions entice consumers to opt for services such as a free cut and blow-dry or mini beauty treatment. The salon owner gets the new client lead and then it’s over to the team to take the opportunity of converting them into a regular customer. The Hair and Beauty Groups can supply your salon with the agreed level of leads within an agreed period of time so offering an effective way of keeping your team occupied during any down-time while also helping to keep moral strong. Plus, it can be a great way of finding new clients. Salon owner David Drew, who has 38 years’ experience in the hairdressing industry, joined the groups’ parent company as its new business development director last summer. The industry expert ran his own salon chain before selling and setting up Impact Business Coach in 2005 to share his knowledge. Meanwhile, he has also been the business editor for the Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s FM magazine and was appointed chairman in April. As an experienced member of The

Hair and Beauty Groups, Drew says the schemes are a great way of building up graduate stylists’ columns and confidence. Better still, his own business converted 80 per cent of the new leads into regular paying clients. To join, salon owners pay an initial £50 admin fee and then they’re ready to start taking leads. There are no membership or lead fees – just new client introductions for life. There is also area exclusivity per postcode, which means no one else will be in direct competition. The first 20 The Salon Magazine readers to call and request membership will receive a 50 per cent discount on the initial £50 administrative joining fee. Tel: 01923 234 556 E: beauty@cccuk.co

ONLINE MARKETING

Power to you If you only concentrate on one marketing strategy this year – make sure it’s online, says Cocoroco Communications’ Su Clark

T

he revolution in marketing is over almost as soon as it began. In just a handful of years, online has won while traditional marketing has laid down its weapons and conceded defeat. Peace negotiations now centre on how direct mail and advertising fit with digital marketing, not the other way around. The skirmish began with websites before being whipped into a frenzy with email marketing and stoked further by online review sites. By the time social networking took over from speaking to one another in person or on the phone, online clearly had the upper hand. But as with any seismic change, trying to convince everyone to embrace the new is taking time. There are still people out there who haven’t signed up to Facebook and rarely check their emails, but their number is shrinking by millions every month – that’s right, every month! Meanwhile, salons that jumped on board early are benefiting from large numbers of followers on Twitter and Facebook, healthy databases of clients expecting their messages, high rankings on Google and rave reviews on Yelp. Their websites are smart phone ready and fast loading while their online bookings are growing dramatically. Sophisticated analytics are now available to measure and inform campaigns, via Facebook Insights or Google Analytics, allowing those salons to judge what works and what doesn’t as well as what to repeat and what to avoid – and all the while building a loyal and

52 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

engaged clientele. But the really successful salons have also realised that digital marketing is about more than just a different channel of communication: it is a whole new way of communicating. Traditional marketing was all about getting the salon’s name in front of clients (think of a billboard; a flyer; a radio ad; a TV spot; a print advertisement) and if you

do for them. To market effectively these days you have to ask questions, not make statements. And, more importantly, you have to listen to the answers. How well you listen will make or break your strategy. Of course, all of this is happening across a multitude of platforms, and to follow them all would mean an end to your life as you know it. Instead, it’s far best to target just a few and post frequent, consistent messages…

Being social

managed to grab their attention, the aim was to shout as loud as possible about how fabulous the business was. Not any more. People are no longer interested in listening to how amazing you are before choosing to come to your salon. They want to know what you think of them, what you’ve been up to and what you can

Whichever platforms you do opt for, use them to create conversations rather than for posting statements. Best engagement comes from posting/tweeting/pinning photos, memes and videos or anything that will get your clients ‘liking’ your post and better still – sharing it with their friends. What better way to recommend you? Regularly posting or tweeting advice on styling, conditioning or fashion can help position you as a respected voice to someone who had never previously thought of coming to your salon. And whenever someone responds to your efforts, jump on it and get that interaction going. Yet all of the above still represents a significant segment of time. Digital marketing specialist Valorie Reavis of Linkup Marketing recommends aiming for at least two or three posts a day on each of your chosen platforms to generate enough effective engagement, which necessitates buying in a little help from an affordable software management programme like the beauty/hair-specific

ONLINE MARKETING TOP SOCIAL MEDIA SITES FOR SALONS Twitter: 500 million users In no more than 140 characters you can tell your clients/followers what you are up to in real time. You say: ‘Ready for London Fashion Week #LFW? I can’t wait for #Burberry Prorsum.’ Facebook: 1 billion users Let the world know what you do, how you do it and where, and let followers share with all their friends. You say: ‘I love following beauty and fashion.’ Shout Lounge or the more general Hoot Suite. Such programmes allow you to find potential content for your platforms, which you can then schedule for release at set times through the week. They will also monitor your own brand online, tipping you off when someone raves or rants about your salon, allowing you to step in quickly and respond or offer a solution.

Keeping the conversation going Alongside your social networking efforts sits email marketing, the new direct mail. Cheap and easy, it is your new best friend when it comes to promoting your business. The huge design and printing costs and the worry about getting any brochure or leaflet into the hands of potential clients are gone. Instead, smart emails rich with links to your website will receive a warm reception from those who opted into your mailing list, boosting sales and online bookings. When we work with

54 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

Nottingham salon Zullo and Holland, we boost the mix content so once every three months an extended newsletter goes out rather than a single message, which includes catwalk updates and how-to tips on targeted products. In all, the campaign has become essential to keeping the conversation going between the salon and its client between visits. Of course, an email campaign’s success depends on the salon’s database. A recent survey by salon software giant Shortcuts found that the average salon holds email addresses for just 15 per cent of its clients. One of the biggest obstacles is reluctance by the team to take responsibility for gathering clients’ emails. But enshrine it in training and salon policy; enforce it by rewarding success and email lists will grow. And it’s worth the effort as email addresses are necessary for that other great boom in digital communications: the online survey. Some software providers offer survey templates or many free ones are available on the internet. These give a perfect platform to encourage feedback from clients, which can drive improvements in service and pollinate the two-way relationship. Stick with one offering analytics that flag up any issues and, over time, recognise trends. We recommend sending out surveys to new clients to show interest in them from day one, and a general survey to the whole database no more than once a year. Offering incentives encourages participation, and featuring the findings in newsletters will drive up interest. The post-revolutionary world of digital marketing is rich with opportunity and

Instagram: 100 million users Fun effects with pictures which are then shared with friends and their friends. You say: ‘Here’s a vintage pic from the House of Holland show #LFW.’ Tumblr: 80 million blogs A place to blog about anything that interests you or your clients. You say: ‘This week we’re talking about #LFW and here are the pics to show you what we mean.’ Pinterest: 25 million visitors a month Show your followers what inspires you or what you’ve been creating in-salon. You say: ‘Isn’t this photo from Felder Felder at London Fashion Week inspirational?’ You Tube: 4 million views a day The place to upload short films showcasing what you do best. You say: ‘This is us recreating the look from Vivienne Westwood so you can see how it’s done.’

relatively easy to access, but things are moving so fast that sometimes it can intimidate rather than initiate. The most sage advice is to take it slowly, adding another platform only after you’ve mastered each addition. Also, seek help if you need it.

MANAGER PRO

Motivation is what they need Stuart Holmes reveals how to keep staff motivated in the New Year

“L

ike the rest of the country, salon staff can return to work in the New Year with a big bout of the January blues. This can have a disastrous effect in an industry where the majority of staff are client facing. And it therefore falls upon those in management to ensure staff return to work feeling motivated and ready to tackle the rest of the year head on. “Motivating your team can take many different forms but what is important is that your strategy targets both professional development and personal wellbeing. We spend a lot of time at The Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa ensuring our staff members are receiving the professional training and development support they need. Staff members, especially younger ones, find it very demotivating if they’re not given the chance to learn new skills and progress up the career ladder. Regular appraisals and updating of training goals will help to ensure that you and your team are on the same page when it comes to development. “We invest heavily into our apprenticeships and professional development schemes and we do find that this keeps staff motivation levels flying high. It is an idea to sit down with all your team members in early January and talk through what they would like to achieve professionally during 2013. This sort of appraisal will help you formulate your team

58 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

plans for the next 12 months. “Another thing that we work on very early on in the year is our in-house ‘Set the Trend’ competition - an inter-salon scheme that allows all team members to show off their creative talents. Nurturing

your stylists’ creativity is an essential component of a successful salon. The whole team, from apprentices up to director level, take part. We ask each person to produce a full look from head to toe. They have to source the model, style the outfit, direct the make-up artist and most importantly create a finished hairstyle that will wow.

“Some staff members produce very commercial styles while others opt to create more catwalk looks. We enlist the help of a judging panel made up of senior staff management plus representatives from L’Oreal, our PR team and the media. Models are paraded in front of the judges while the stylists talk through their look. Each is then professionally photographed so every participant can use the experience as part of their portfolio. “The judges usually choose two winners whose names are announced at a catwalk show that evening. This is always held at a trendy local hotel and all the stylists can invite up to four guests to attend. It really is a fantastic way for them to show off their professional skills to their friends and family. The winners in the past have won £150 cash each plus Matrix Training vouchers. We find this is a great motivator and something the whole team can look forward to. “January is the time to do that little bit extra for your staff. Many of them will have worked incredibly hard during the manic month of December so say thank you and incorporate them in your planning for making 2013 one of the best yet. “Happy New Year!” Stuart Holmes has over 23 years’ experience in hairdressing and runs the multi-award winning Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa in Cheltenham with his wife Sara.

At any length Jason Paul offers premium quality hair and tools at highly competitive prices

H

eaded by hairdresser Paul Spiegel who has over 50 years’ experience in the business, extensions specialist Jason Paul has built up a solid reputation for offering high quality hair, tools and training at highly competitive prices. The company supplies bulk and wefted premium quality Chinese and European hair at low rates. And with a small team at the helm, it offers a personal service with free unbiased advice and expert guidance. “I set up the business around 44 years ago after realising that I could offer a better service than what was already available at a much lower price,” says Spiegel. “Since then, over the years, I’ve sourced even better quality products and I’m able to continue selling them at low prices as I’ve focused on keeping my company

compact.” Jason Paul’s bulk premium hair is supplied in easy-to-use packs that minimise waste to maximise profits. All of the hair is ideal for making up bonded hair extensions, which Spiegel says can help provide better match in size and colour than buying pre-bonded ready-made extensions. The company also sells one of the best adhesive sticks on the market that has been extensively tested for over 1,000 hours in shampoo, conditioner and water.

Prices for premium hair start from £48.95 for 112g and the company offers new customers a 10 per cent discount. Jason Paul is also offering The Salon Magazine readers an exclusive 25 per cent discount on its packs of adhesive sticks or a free starter pack of five sticks, one protective silicone bonding pad, protective scalp guard and a detailed manual with every purchase of its 12mm adhesive applicator (one per salon only).

or many of us, a New Year means new resolutions and an attempt to improve our lives. It could be that you want to lose weight or start a new fitness regime, but let’s consider another popular New Year goal for many: progressing in your career. Saks Education can help you achieve your career goals – with a range of qualifications available to suit everyone’s needs. To start, a crucial tool is a development plan. This will allow you to set your own targets and find the best way to achieve them. It will help you envisage what you are doing and keep track of your progression and achievements. The development plan needs to be updated and reviewed regularly to ensure it remains

relevant and it can be used for business and personal development. To begin you need to ask yourself three questions and break each of those down: • Where am I now? What am I good at? What do I need to work on? What could help me? What might stop me? • Where do I want to be? What is my motive for learning/ developing? What qualifications and/or experience do I already have? How much time do I realistically have to complete my learning/developing? What is my ultimate goal? How will I measure my success? • How do I get there? Short-term objectives

Medium-term objectives Long-term objectives Remember, short, medium and long objectives are all relative terms and will mean different things to different people; it all depends on you and your own circumstances. You must also remember to regularly review your development plan. If you need to revise it, just revisit the three main questions. Now you’re ready to draw up your development plan focusing on the skills and criteria you need to achieve what you want and how you can get there. But remember that nothing happens overnight – it’s all about setting realistic goals and working towards them.

In the mix Fresh from the US, curly haircare brand Mixed Chicks is breaking the mould by targeting clients of every ethnicity

S

ince its launch in 2004, US curly hair care specialist Mixed Chicks has gone from strength to strength with its unique selling point of catering for all curly hair types – regardless of ethnic background or race. Founders Kim Etheridge and Wendi Levy – who are both of dual heritage – masterminded the idea for the range after finding it impossible to obtain products that suited their hair texture. “Whether you’re white, black, Mediterranean or Asian, hair is hair and products shouldn’t be defined by race,” says Etheridge. “In using the brand name Mixed Chicks we’re highlighting the fact that everyone is a blend of many and that’s an ever-growing market.” The UK has one of the fastest growing mixed race populations in the world. According to the Office for National Statistics, it has shown an average annual growth rate of nearly 5 per cent every year between 2001 and 2009. While the likes of Boots and Superdrug have finally started stocking products for Afro hair, there was still gap in the market for what is estimated by 2020 to be the largest ethnic minority group on UK. That is, until now.

Step forward Mixed Chicks: a brand aiming to bring vibrant, salon-finished style to a consumer demographic that has so far been neglected in the UK mass market. Its professional range offers a comprehensive product line-up including Shampoo and Conditioner for Curls, Gloss and Shining Hair Serum as well as a Straightening Serum and sub ranges for men and children. “Clients will love the way these non-sticky, lightweight curly hair products leave their hair inviting to touch as they define and lock moisture into every curl,” says Etheridge. “And yes, it not only works on wavy, tightly curled or straight hair but also on weaves.” The Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner is the best selling product in the range and the founder says it is an ideal way to create big, bouncy and defined curls. “Simply work a generous portion through soaking wet hair, leave-in and air-dry for the softest, bounciest and most defined curls ever,” she says. “A great tip is to dilute some leave in conditioner in a spray bottle as a quick fix for that frizzy ‘halo’ that curly girls can sometimes be afflicted with.” Meanwhile the deep conditioner is

highly effective on both straight and curly styles as it nourishes, detangles and restores thirsty locks. The exclusive conditioning blend penetrates and reconstructs damaged areas, transforming style-stubborn hair into resilient, easy to maintain and shiny tresses. Lastly, the Kids Haircare range by Mixed Chicks has been designed specifically for children with naturally curly hair. “If you know a mum who is struggling to tame her little one’s curls then one of our kid’s haircare quad packs could be the answer to their prayers,” says Etheridge. The brand has been so well received in America that it commands a large following of celebrity fans including the likes of Halle Berry, Jordin Sparks and Macy Gray. Meanwhile, since its recent launch on our shores, the brand is already gaining momentum as a sought-after range. According to celebrity hairdresser Michelle Sultan who tends to Alesha Dixon’s tresses, the Britain’s Got Talent judge is “totally hooked” on the Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner. She says: “I gave her some tubs to try and three weeks later she came back asking for more. She just loves it.” Tel: 0208 997 4781 Mixedchicks.net
