They’re the unsung heroes of the hairdressing industry, and we’re excited to help them find their voice.
Indies don’t know they’re the majority
We’ve been in the hair industry for a long time, and we started to notice the huge growth of the Indie community - then we saw the stats! More than 70% of the hairdressing industry in Australia is now made up of sole trader hairdressers, yet there’s very little professional recognition, business and economic support and career advocacy for this group.
They’re going it alone
The Australian Hairdressing Council conducted a survey of single operators in 2022, and 80% of respondents said they felt the admin is overwhelming and they’re struggling to take a holiday or sick leave because they don’t get paid.
After some extensive research, we discovered the challenges for hairdressing sole traders kept coming - holding stock, building wealth, managing admin, marketing effectively - but with no solutions in sight.
We’re for the underdogs
As more people go looking for innovative and convenient alternatives to make their lives more balanced, we believe the Indie community will only grow further, and we want to use our own successful business experience to make sure every Indie in Australia is set up to thrive!
