Why no business can survive without tech

As co-owners and managers of Halo Hair Body Beauty, it’s important that we get our formula for success just right. Our livelihoods depend on it. Like many successful salons, our approach and values are at the heart of our success. We are motivated, driven and genuine in our approach and beliefs, and this is something our staff respond to and our clients see reflected in everything we do. Our focus is on always giving our clients the high-quality experience they deserve, but providing great service isn’t the only thing that affects how well our business performs. We also rely on a range of systems and technologies to help us grow our business and ensure we continue to be profitable.

Jen and Sherie share their secrets

Business partners, high achievers, and occasional mischief-makers, Jen and Sherie are a force to be reckoned with. We caught up with this dynamic duo for a chat about what makes them tick, and discovered a few little secrets along the way… What is your passion?

Sometimes clients walk in to the salon feeling low, and seeing them walk out just oozing confidence is amazing. Sherie: Oh, Jen stole mine! Personally, I love being able to create an effect with a colour and cut completely transforming the way someone looks. Being able to wow them. I’ve had people tell me, “I didn’t think I could look that good”. What motivates you? Jen: Being able to set goals for the future, and achieve them. At the moment we have some big things on the cards – we want to grow our brand and are even looking at opening a second salon. It’s exciting! Sherie: Jen and I have a very similar dream, and are very particular about what we want and how we want it done. In three short…
