During the build of the first Loaf Hairstylists salon, Channel 4’s ‘Risking it All’ series filmed all the development work. At the end of the programme, the presenter praised the company on air and said that it was by far the most successful business of the series!
“As soon as the programme was aired in August 2006, our salon went into overdrive with calls from people all over the area wanting a booking with one of our stylists. We were thrilled and excited for the future,” says Richard Darlow, Managing Director of Loaf Hairstylists.
The Loaf Hairstylists niche is for city centre styling in the suburbs. Research showed that many people wanted a professional and stylish haircut but didn’t want to travel into the city centre and didn’t want to pay such a high price. The Loaf Hairstylists approach to hairdressing is relaxed yet professional, a combination that seems to work well with their quality brand image.
In 2006, a second salon was opened in Broomhill, yet another suburb of Sheffield. This salon also proved to be an immediate success and continues to grow.
Recently Loaf Hairstylists have opened up their business to franchisees with the first one already signed up. Their programme on Channel 4 has recently been rerun which should add to the hype and attention that this brand already has.
Franchisees don’t need any previous hairdressing experience because they will be trained in all aspects of the business. However, applicants need to be confident, have a flair for fashion and have lots of energy.
