Ethical Salons

We want to promote and support salon owners who do the right thing by their staff. That’s why we have started Ethical Salons to recognise salons that are doing the right thing and provide you with advice and support for you and your staff!

Cass from The Cutting Room at Riverstone

“After 25 years in the industry and 12 years as a salon owner, I believe that running a great “ethical” salon is mainly about creating a joyous, fair, electric and informative environment. Our core values are respect, honesty, integrity and innovation. We believe in constantly learning so we provide ongoing training. Respecting your team comes in all forms but it will always come full circle. Pay your team correctly and on time, educate, enjoy your craft = clients that are raving fans, who tell their friends and you get more clients. All this equals a strong, successful, enjoyable team and business.

Because of our approach to running our business we have won numerous awards for business, environment and training.

Ultimately work should be a safe, dependable, fun and informative place to be. The fact that we get to be ultra creative, learn new things everyday and have the power to change someone’s self perspective is a massive bonus”.
