Become A Saloon Franchisee
Men represent roughly half of the population. Hair Saloon® provides franchisees with an exceptional business opportunity by targeting this underserved market. Our uncompromising commitment to customer service, combined with the unique atmosphere found at every Hair Saloon location, creates a premium men's haircut experience that inspires customer loyalty and advocacy.
With sales exceeding $50 billion, the U.S. hair care industry is recession resistant as haircuts are a necessity in any economic cycle. Growing faster than the aggregate economy, the U.S. hair care industry offers a stable foundation for store performance and franchise expansion.
American men have steadily increased spending on hair care and related services. From a cultural perspective, men spend more for a value-added experience. Men are also rediscovering American values and appreciate the masculine environment that Hair Saloon provides. Overall, the men's market represents a largely underserved segment and has unlimited potential for growth.
The men's haircutting category, in what is largely a fragmented industry, is prime for Hair Saloon expansion through franchising. More than 85% of total U.S. haircutting venues do not align with any chain or franchise.
The men's hair care product category also provides a ready market for the exclusively formulated Hair Saloon personal care products.
Franchising succeeds when it offers equal benefit to the franchisees and the franchisor. The Hair Saloon® System offers a franchising program in which cooperation and communication are the foundation of the relationship.
The system works because franchisees and the franchisor work to deliver and preserve the integrity of the Hair Saloon brand…”Premium brand of Men’s haircutting”
Our target market represents roughly half of the population and we believe Men Deserve Better®.
Hair Saloon For Men is a proud member of VetFran, which is an International Franchise Association initiative founded to offer financial incentives, training and mentoring to veterans interested in small business ownership and/or a career path in franchising.
