Award-winning salon group Tommy’s Hair Company has launched Tommy’s Franchise.

With successful styling salons in Ruthin and Chester and a third soon to open in Llandudno, founders Tommy and Esther van der Veken hope to have up to 50 prestige franchisees within five years.

Tommy’s Hair Company Chester has just been awarded the title of British Salon of the Year for the second consecutive year running at the British Hairdressing Business Awards. This is the fifth time in total that Tommy’s Hair Company have won this award, a feat no other salon within the UK has ever achieved. Tommy’s Hair Company has also won a Global Salon Business Award for Salon Leadership and the Most Wanted Business Thinker Award.

Esther van der Veken said: “Tommy’s Franchise will provide a great opportunity for business-minded people to join a fashionable and creative culture. We are working with an excellent group of franchise experts who can help potential franchisees through the process – from selecting the best site for their salon, negotiating with landlords, lawyers and bank managers, through to securing the salon furniture and fittings.”

Mrs van der Veken explained the brand had become renowned for its exceptional salon experience, personalised services, high quality, professionalism and creativity, which had led to the growth of its two boutique salons and an academy providing training across North Wales.

She added: “Through our academy, every stylist will be trained in Tommy’s unique free-style approach to quality personalised styling, while business managers will receive training in all elements of running a successful salon operation. We will also provide our franchisees with tools and assistance from our design, marketing and PR teams.

“It is our job to ensure we make the journey undertaken by franchisees into salon ownership as smooth and easy as possible. We hope to inspire and motivate our franchisees to grow and develop, helping them make their Tommy’s Franchise realise its full potential.

“Tommy’s Franchise is not just for hairdressers – it is open to anyone who believes they have the personality, flair, passion and business common-sense to offer the Tommy’s experience.”
