GoSalon the future of retail

Applying for Dragons Den

We did some research and found that 8 out of 10 customers would purchase a product from their stylist, but only if the price was closer to the internet. (Salon products typically have a 40% mark up when you purchase from a salon compared to some online retailers).The problem wasn’t that clients had not stopped buying retail products, just stopped buying them from salons. There are many reasons for this which I could go into but I'll spare you the details.Hair & Beauty industry in the UK is worth £28bn pounds and it’s not under threat from automation or robots anytime soon which means the salon will still demand space on the high street.
