Salon Lane is coming to Australia, debuting a flagship space in Surry Hills in October and bringing a bold salon concept from the US to Australia more generally. The concept has been in operation in the US for 21 years, offering risk-averse, affordable salon options for hairdressers – something particularly relevant for those facing the challenges of 2020.
The organisation offers flexible premium workspaces for Australian hair, beauty and wellness professionals, incorporating short-term and adaptable leases and forgoing the fit out and overhead costs necessary with standalone premises. Small business owners are given the gift of accessible, professional studios, with freedom and flexibility through daily, monthly and annual lease options.
Various studio spaces, of different sizes and configurations, make this opportunity truly tailored. The spaces are readily accessible and move-in ready, ensuring a safe space and a support network for hair and beauty professionals, who will retain full control over their own businesses and profits.
“The salon studios concept has been quietly growing at a rapid pace across the USA, largely because of the level of freedom and professional support it provides hair and beauty specialists, allowing them to create and run the business of their dreams,” said Salon Lane co-founder Lane Kalish. “Internationally, there has been a significant shift to this model of working, and we believe that Australian hairstylists, barbers, makeup artists, beauty therapists, nail technicians, masseurs and other industry professionals are ready for that shift because it ultimately benefits them, and the industry as a whole.”
Salon Lane is the product of several stalwarts of the industry. Lance brings experience from both Australia and the US, as co-founder of Yes To, a natural beauty brand with more than 28,000 stockists, with other global CEO credits in haircare to his name. He combines with co-founder and director Moss Kadey, whose 30 years of experience includes his renowned role as co-founder of Bumble & Bumble Products LLC. He was also previously chairman and co-founder of Luxury Brand Partners, owners of Oribe, R+Co, IGK, Smith & Cult, and Beca. The duo are joined by the brand’s CEO Jared Keen, who has vast experience in property management, technology and entrepreneurship.
“Coming from North America, I have witnessed the huge change in industry to this model. I have seen firsthand how the industry is changing and moving towards this concept,” Moss enthused.
Prepare for the very concept the industry could need right now and take advantage of the support and flexibility Salon Lane will offer hairdressers from October.
