This month, the spotlight has been on money and the investment it takes to keep your salon ticking over nicely. The cost of supplies was a hot topic, especially how much cash it takes to stock your treatment rooms and retail space. Although your average spend came in at anywhere between £100 and £300 per month, 13% said they splash more than £500 on supplies, while just under a fifth (18%) only shell out £51 to £100.

With Christmas just around the corner, many of you are already organising your promotional strategy. Nearly two thirds (62%) are putting together seasonal treatment offers, while 23% are looking to offer a gift with purchase and 18% are launching a New Year rebooking incentive.

Be among the first to get your hands on the pro brands’ Christmas collections at PB North.
