The Salon Control team met with Ashley Daly, co-owner of Pure Hair salon in Solihull. The salon has been running for 16 years now and was founded by business partners Ashley and Jenny. Pure Hair is a big colour salon, offering a wide range of hair treatments to both ladies and gentlemen.
Ashley had considered installing a salon management system for several years, and finally settled on Salon Control. Here’s what she had to say about our software system…
“We chose Salon Control because it is so easy to use. We knew we needed to move the business forwards and keep up to date with current trends; but we’re hairdressers – we’re not businesspeople, and we’re not especially computer-savvy. Our staff have quickly picked up the software and find it very easy to navigate.
One of Salon Control’s key features is the online booking system. People are busier than ever nowadays – they just want to come home from work, cook dinner, and go online to book their haircut. Salon Control allows our clients to book appointments at their own leisure and it also prompts clients to rebook, which has massively increased our sales.
Here at Pure Hair, we like to tailor each appointment to the individual client. With Salon Control, we can view and make decisions prior to the appointment; for example, if a client has a lot of hair it may take longer to colour, and so we can allocate more time for that client. I also love being able to access and manage the system from the comfort of my own home. These factors allow our salon to run very smoothly, increasing our overall efficiency.
Salon Control is a unique salon management system, built by hairdressers for hairdressers. The support we have received from the very beginning has been fantastic; if we ever have a problem, the support team will help us in any way they can.
We love Salon Control!”
