Since 2009, Salon Concepts has prided themselves on a superior understanding of the hairdressing industry and maintained a keen interest in each stylist’s specific needs and desires. Their focus has always been extensive product knowledge in order to deliver results.

“We were thrilled to receive the award, especially considering the size of the Australian market and the growth that we have seen for the Real Techniques and Eco Tools brands. It just shows Australian women love the brands,” John Fisher, owner and founder, responded.

Paris Presents assessed companies on four behaviours. Firstly, exceeding targets – Salon Concepts grew an unbelievable 132 per cent last year. Growth acceleration was another big indicator, with Salon Concepts adding more than 900 new distribution points into the Australian hair market. They’ve also focused the company externally, developing new relationships with Asian distributors, and fulfil the critical fourth behaviour, “just getting started”, with a big start to 2015.

Congratulations, Salon Concepts!
