How to Make Your Walkins Feel Like Kings

Barbers have carved their own niche in the hair industry – creating successful modern-day barbershops built on the foundations of tradition and heroing one of the longest standing trades. They’ve been revived to become places where fellas go not just for the trendy short back and sides cut, but for a unique experience. An experience where they get to sit back and relax with beer and banter.

ShortcutsPay: The Priceless Value of Complete Payment Integration

Ever been so flat-out in the salon you’ve rushed a client’s checkout, accidentally keying in $10 instead of $100 – uh oh! You just lost $90 on the transaction and your client’s already zipped out the door? #Awkies! Don’t worry we’ve all been there’s a common mistake that happens more than you think in the salon industry.

What’s Coming: A New Era

As we get cosy with the idea of 2021, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the past and look forward to the future. I feel that this year is going to hold so much potential for salons who have proven they can survive and thrive through whatever the world can throw at them, after the fiasco of 2020.

Refresh, Revive, Reset: Journey to a Better You

We all love a good makeover story. The feeling of polishing something that’s past it’s prime to make it shiny and new again. We all need our Mia Thermopolis moment in the Princess Diaries when the hand-held mirrors part ways to reveal the new and improved Princess of Genovia. Ugh, an early noughties dream. We’d LOVE to have a makeover just like that on ourselves one day… 😉

2020 in review (P.S it wasn’t all bad!)

Ok guys, we get it… 2020 was a rubbish year. From bushfires to a global pandemic, lockdowns to protests, to wild weather and a wild ride of a US election thrown in, it was a year that was… a lot... to handle. At best. But in amongst the real-bad, we like to think there was some good.
