If you need four great reasons to invest in hair and beauty, you don’t need to look any further than this quarter of well-established brands, all experienced in their industry and franchised.
A brand with a French skincare history and also welded into the Australian beauty psyche, Ella Baché has been in business since 1936. The brand arrived in Australia in 1954 and started the franchise in 2002.
Today, there are more than 100 outlets across Australia, and the brand continues to focus on innovation, a business foundation established by its founder Madame Baché.
Last year, CEO Pippa Hallas took up the challenge of Covid by introducing a digital service, a virtual salon.
Franchisees must be savvy in business; beauty therapy skills are optional.
Expect a franchise today to cost between $ 150,000 and $ 300,000 for a five-year period with two renewal options.
Another brand with a distinctive French accent, Franck Provost has only been in Australia since 2008, although the founder began working in his own business in 1975.
The company has been expanding its glamorous footprint internationally through franchising for over 25 years.
This full-service, premium hairdressing chain now has over 700 salons in its network around the world, including more than 14 across Australia.
Offering high-end customer service, Franck Provost is a high-level brand that offers franchisees access to renowned supplier brands L’Oréal and Kerastase, as well as strong support for franchisors.
A high-end salon comes at a steep price – expect to pay at least $ 250,000 for a salon.
Forty-one years ago, Denis McFadden took the first step in building a cost-conscious hair salon empire by launching his walk-in salon.
A decade later, the company started franchising, and it hasn’t looked back.
The chain has over 200 salons in total, across Australia, New Zealand and the UK – the UK footprint expanding rapidly.
Franchisees don’t need to be hairdressers and the business model offers flexibility – the average Just Cuts franchisee spends less than 30 hours working on their business.
A kiosk option provides an entry-level option for franchisees on a budget.
Expect to pay anywhere from $ 170,000 to almost $ 300,000 for a franchise – depending on model, size, and location.
Price Attack began in 1984 and opened its chain of stores to franchisees in 2003. The All-In-One Hairdressing & Hairdressing & Beauty Set now has 64 units.
Franchisees must have hairdressing experience or qualifications, combined with a love of retail, or be passionate retailers keen to enter the dynamic hairdressing and beauty industry.
The full-service hair salon also offers a number of beauty treatments.
Expect to pay over $ 150,000 for a brand new site – this cost does not include inventory.
In addition to the support of franchisors and proven operating systems, Price Attack offers franchisees a franchise agreement that coincides with a lease term.
