In this video Belinda Keeley tells her story of cracking down on her salon's stock spend and what that system means to the profitability of her salons... long story short her salon stock control systems took a $600k turnover salon from a spend of $108K per year to a $1.8m salon spending only $50k per year... and thats a colour specialist salon!

We all know that the last month of two has been super stressful! Hopefully for those of us in Australia and New Zealand there's light at the end of this tunnel.
One area that the recent stress test has taught us is that our Salon Culture is critical to our success. How's your salon culture held up under pressure? Has your team delighted you or surprised you in some way?
In this webinar we look at your salon's Team Culture and use an exercise called 'Mission to Mars' to help your team and yourself uncover what your true Values are. These may surprise you

In a time like no other, we all need to stay connected, and specifically in the hairdressing industry workplace. With spaced out rosters, salon closures, re-openings, developing and changing information, our workforce needs your salon owner leadership.
If you are a leader in your workplace, now is the time to lead, connect, share information and offer support to your workplace and team.
It’s time to make communication personal with your team! May I add it’s time to over-communicate! Forget emails … let’s get face to face using technology.

We're so flattered and humbled by this article in Hair Biz magazine this month. Thank you to the editors for featuring our journey in the Salon Business world with your readers. We thought we'd share the article here also...
'They’ve been sharing their knowledge with other salon owners for years but, having launched their most recent membership program, ‘Salon Business By The Keeleys’, we thought it was about time we learned a little more.'
'Hair Biz Editor, Kym Krey spoke with Carl and Belinda Keeley recently.'
As a hairdressing salon owner I frequently get asked how many days do I do in the floor? Dose it really matter? What matters is finding YOUR balance! Finding your goals and what it will need of you! Working on vs Working in your salons! It can be tricky and over the years that balance is allowed to change or grow or evolve. Creative leaderships on your salon floor should never be undervalued as a powerful business tool! .
