Is training available?
The hair care industry is a vibrant and creative one and Supercuts has tapped into it becoming a top choice for those looking for convenience, great style and service without the high price tag.
Operated in the UK under Regis UK Ltd, Supercuts is a competitive and branded choice in a marketplace full of independent salons. Because of our comprehensive operating, marketing and financial systems, instead of cutting hair you can focus on using our proven business concept to create your own profitable manager-run salons.
The benefits of owning a Supercuts franchise
- Supercuts is a beloved brand: We are one of the most recognised and popular salon brands in the UK, and serve over 1 million clients annually. In the US, Supercuts is the number one hair care franchise! Entrepreneur Magazine have ranked Supercuts as No. 3 in their 2016 Annual Top 500 Franchises!
- A tested platform: With 30 years of experience, we have streamlined salon operations. Our procedures are easy to implement in an efficient fashion.
- Effective marketing strategies: With almost 200 salons across the UK, and 2,400 more worldwide, Supercuts knows how to market the brand proficiently in both traditional advertising and on digital and social media platforms.

Why open a Supercuts franchise?
- There is built-in demand – haircuts are always necessary
- It is a recession-resistant industry
- Hair salons are technology resistant - hairdressers are highly unlikely to be replaced
- We have easy operational procedures
- Minimal inventories and cash transactions
The Supercuts Business Systems
With a Supercuts franchise, you benefit from multiple revenue systems, providing a stable foundation for multi-facted sales growth. These include:
- Haircuts: The core of our service.
- Salon: We offer a range of additional hair services – shampoo conditioning treatments, blow dry / styling, beard / fringe trim, hair colouring, and if the location allows, nail and brow services.
- Hair products: We stock an assortment of popular hair care brands: Paul Mitchell, Redken, TIGI, ghd, American Crew and the exclusive Designline brand.
Running a Supercuts franchise
The ideal operational set up:
- Manager run: Salons are run by experienced full-time managers, and so do not require the constant presence of the franchisee.
- Professional staff: Supercuts salons employ professional stylists and technicians who are fully trained. Supported by administrative and management teams, the staff are able to put their skills to use to ensure an excellent service.
- Predictable salon rhythm: Supercuts operates proven and efficient processes, so each day runs in a reliable fashion which allows the staff to serve more clients. This standardisation streamlines training, quality assessment and continuous improvement.
- Regular hours: As our salons operate during the usual retail business hours, you can maintain a healthy work-life balance.
Your role as a franchise owner
The number one thing that you need to know is that you do not need to know anything about hair to own a Supercuts franchise.
Your professional team will handle that, while also staying at the forefront of changes and improvements in hair styling due to the ongoing training they receive from us. Your objective as franchisee is to guide your business development and expansion.
- Recruit a strong team
- Establish ties in the local community
- Select and implement marketing plans
- Build your income by executing Supercuts company strategies
- Delegate responsibilities and empower team members
- Work with Regis UK Ltd to ensure the growth of your business
- Provide vision and accountability for operational excellence
We are looking for professional men and women who know nothing about cutting hair and possess strong management and leadership skills, good business and financial acumen and a strong desire to succeed.
Your role is to run the business side of the business, while leaving the day-to-day operations and servicing of guests to your employees. This frees up your time to work "on your business," not "in your business," and enjoy more freedom and flexibility than you ever could have imagined! You will benefit from being able to keep your full-time job and open multiple units with a limited time commitment.
