How one man’s pain became a lifelong passion

Colin

No one likes being let down.
When (salon owner) Colin Shove was let down by his software supplier
in 2002 he returned the system in person. He left with a lifelong mission: to empower salon pros with technology, instead of entrap them.

‘I have enjoyed 35 years in the salon industry; starting out as a stylist and then, for more than a decade, running my own hairdressing business. As a customer of two salon software companies myself I have first hand knowledge of substandard products and support.  I set out to empower and enrich the lives of salon owners, and its a challenge I still relish every day.’

‘You will have experienced numerous challenges throughout your journey. When I speak with salon owners three come up frequently. I call them the ‘3Ts’:

team

‘Establishing and building a productive
team of loyal, enthusiastic talent is a daily
challenge for owners of salons of all sizes.
Good team members are hard to find.
Skilled hair stylists and beauty therapist
have plenty of employment opportunities.’

time

The owner is often pushed for time. In fact
on average a salon owner employing four
people will generate more than 50% of the
takings themselves. Running your business
can become secondary to serving clients;
team management, training, marketing,
stock control and admin. (I call this having a
paid audience.)

takings

‘Perhaps the biggest challenge is
delivering new business and retaining
existing clients – ensuring takings are
good and growing. This includes new business
marketing, loyalty drives and
reconnecting to to past clients.’

If, like most, the three Ts are top of your list, we’ve built a system with you in mind. Come and try it out today.

‘Salon Advantage is simple and fast to use. I love the marketing. I can generate a targeted
text campaign and know the phone will ring and the diary will fill. ‘ Steve O’Rourke – So Hairdressing
