Find out all the Salon Secrets...

Because running a salon is a tough gig. You start out with such high expectations, but quickly realise that its not all that easy. Staff issues, poor cash flow and time management are just a few of the things we discuss in our private Facebook Group. 

What exactly is a Secret Salon Society...?

It does not matter how long you have had your salon, or how successful you are, you are a Salon Owner, and you most likely share the same common issues as everyone else.

You have staff, overheads, competition... You are fearful of not keeping up with what everyone else is doing, you are fearful or price increases and those nasty social media reviews.

Imagine a world where you have a network of other salon owners to bounce ideas off, network with and support you. Imagine a place you can ask any question and not be judged. Well, Secret Salon Society is a mixed bag of goodies, but ultimately, we are your new BFF.

"Being a part of Secret Salon Society is SO MUCH FUN and so good for business! The Hair & Beauty industry is so damn beautiful when you are surrounded by supportive amazing people all working hard to grow together" - Carissa Hill


After 20 years in hairdressing, it's safe to say Kristy has a few stories. We don't do 'fluffy' stories. We talk about the good, the bad and the ugly side of our industry.

The email that made me cringe…
When staff leave, sometimes you are high fiving, sometimes you are hurt, often you are just a bit nervous. It is not just the hair and beauty industry that has to deal with the risk of client solicitation and gossip during this time. I just received an email from my Osteopath and it made me…
Don’t be a dummy when you open your Salon
This is how things typically go with our industry.   Me: I want to open my own salon Accountant: Great! Let’s just start you as a Sole Trader and when you get big enough, we will change you into a company (Lazy accountant who is not taking you seriously) Me: Ok great (phew. Company sounds…
Some people are c*nts
As I sat in my car waiting for a carpark (the all day staff ones) a lady was sorting through her mail and standing at the rear of her car. She glances over at me, and continued to stand there for another minute or so. I was happily, patiently waiting, but it got me thinking….…



"Joining the Secret Salon Society has helped me take my salon to the next level. I love the client loyalty that comes with a VIP membership, my clients love having their photo taken with the Selfie Station, and the mentoring platform has made salon life so much easier. The support I receive has been amazing." - Mia Devries, The Fox & The Hair

 “Implementing client memberships to my salon is by far one of the best things I have ever done. Whether we close for xmas or Easter, or whether I just take a break, I have a guaranteed few thousand in my account every week. It's such an amazing way to reward your loyal clients and keep your staff busy every day they are at work” - Caitlyn Menzel, Raw Edge Hairdressing

It’s not okay with us that an 11 year old girl can be sold to a 55 year old man in the name of marriage. It’s not okay that a 12 year old girl is forced to sell herself in a brothel to earn money to survive. Stories like this that we hear are not inevitable. We CAN do something about it.

Education changes everything. Secret Salon Society is proud to support One Girl - a charity empowering girls through education. Together we’re changing the world, one girl at a time.

Right now 60 million girls around the world aren’t in school, simply because they were born a girl. But we’re working to change that.

One Girl believes that EVERY girl has the right to an education, no matter where she’s born, how much her parents earn, what her culture says, or what religion she adheres to. Every girl has the right to grow, learn, and be the best she can be.

One Girl is committed to educating 1 million girls across Africa, and Secret Salon Society is excited to contribute to this vision. Together we’re changing the world, one girl at a time.
