Salon Stock... 

it's the second biggest expense to your salon behind your employment costs. So why do we all ignore it and put it in the 'too hard basket'?

Perhaps it seems too daunting to really take a grip or perhaps it would be 'too serious an issue' to place a system around your stock spend?

Before you scroll away and distract yourself with a more fun topic let's take a quick peek at these figures... these are our past professional stock spend figures.

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!
