Salon Manager Courses

Salon Managers oversee the operations of modern hairdressing and beauty salons, barber shops, spas and wellness centres. They are responsible for the day-to-day running of the salon and ensuring there are enough qualified therapists to handle the daily bookings.

Marketing and advertising, opening and closing the salon, applying hygiene controls — plus ensuring treatments and beauty therapies are at a consistent high standard are all core responsibilities of a salon manager. Experienced salon managers could also open their own practice.
