“Clients that spend more on beauty services tend to want better ambience when they go to the salon. They value that ‘me time’ as an experience they can enjoy,” explained Pat Liapis, Owner of Direct Salon Equipment.

Two recent reports found that beauty services are booming among Australians. Salon owners who want to maximise profits can take advantage of this trend by attracting and retaining better clients.
According to a recent report from BRW, Australians are spending more on beauty services now than ever before. The BRW Fast 100 report ranks Australia’s fastest growing companies. Many of the businesses on the list transformed and grew their businesses because of the economic downturn.
Time Telecom, a company that provides phone and broadband services, topped the BRW Fast 100 list by thriving during the economic downturn. Beauty services have also been doing well despite the tough economy.
Another recent report by salon industry watcher IBIS World predicted that Australians would spend almost $7 billion on their looks this year. Nearly $3.8 billion of the $7 billion would be spent on hair and beauty. The rest of the $7 billion would be spent on fitness, weight-loss, and cosmetic procedures.
To maximise profits, salon owners can arrange their salons to attract the clientele they want. Direct Salon Equipment, an online store that sells salon furniture and equipment, weighs in on the impact of décor and atmosphere on client attraction and retention.
“Clients that spend more on beauty services tend to want better ambience when they go to the salon. They value that ‘me time’ as an experience they can enjoy,” explained Pat Liapis, Owner of Direct Salon Equipment, “Part of creating an enjoyable experience for clients is creating a beautiful and comfortable ambience for them. This not only requires beautiful yet functional furnishings and décor, but also in the way the salon thinks of the client in its arrangements. For example, having a place to hang clients’ coats when they arrive and training staff to be attentive to guests are things that go a long way in creating a positive experience for clients.”
