By | Business Advice, News | No Comments

2017 Priorities   Setting goals and priorities is one thing, but sticking to them is another! As we’re heading into September we thought we’d check in with you and see what priorities you have set for your business.   We’re on hand to offer some advice and tips on how to make sure that your salon or barber shop gets to where you want it before the bells ring in 2018! The most popular priorities we find our clients set themselves are revamping the interior of a salon, going green, dealing with stress, improving social media and of course, making more money!   1.

Easydry Disposable Towels can help to reduce your energy consumption

Are rising energy costs a threat to your business?

By | Business Advice, Environmental Tips | No Comments

Are rising energy costs a threat to your business?   Hair and beauty salons are two of the most energy intensive businesses there are, so naturally rising energy costs are a concern to the industry. A new survey for Utilita Energy has revealed that 63% of independent hairdressers in the UK fear that the increasing cost of energy is crippling their future.   The survey also states that 42% of hair salons feel they get an unfair deal from energy suppliers, and 71% say they have been caught out by unexpected T&Cs such as crippling rates, inflexible payment terms, high deposits and extended contracts. These figures are quite scary, and naturally a cause of concern to any salon owner.

Top Tips for Barbers from Easydry   Like most industries today barbers face many challenges in establishing and running a successful barber shop. Here are Easydry’s Top Tips for barbers! • Stand out from the crowd: Everyone is competing for customers in the same market so you need to make sure that people want to come to you, and keep coming back. One great way to stand out is with interiors – lots of barbers have incorporated reclaimed furniture, unusual wall prints and even motorcycles into their interiors! One barber shop that we love is the Gentleman’s Retreat in Doncaster. Owner James loves antiques and interior design, and you can tell. The shop is full of ornaments, trinkets and includes a stunning prohibition themed bar!   • Set the right price: It can be hard to distinguish yourself in a sometimes over-saturated market, and one way is to make sure you offer clients value for…

3 Scary Facts About Cotton

By | Business Advice, Environmental Tips, News | No Comments

3 Scary Facts About Cotton   Cotton is one of the most commonly used textiles in the world. It is used in our clothing, linen, furniture and even our food through cotton seed oil, but do you know the impact cotton is having on our planet?   Where cotton comes from isn’t something that we have had to necessarily think about too much, it’s such a common place textile that we take it for granted. But when you start to look at the production of cotton a bit closer some of the statistics are quite scary.  Cotton is a thirsty plant, first and foremost. The amount of water required to make one tonne of cotton is staggering. 1kg of cotton (needed to manufacture 1 shirt and 1 pair of denim jeans) can take up to 20,000 litres of water in total to make! If you think about that for a…
