Antony Whitaker, the Two Minute Salon Manager says, "The marketing of the salon was good, the concept was good, the coffee was good, the decor and energy in the salon was totally on point and I got a good haircut… but the entire experience could have been so much better!”

The opportunities that exist everywhere for salons or barbershops to lift their game and offer a better level of professionalism, a better level of service and client experience and to have well trained people that realise that they are in the service industry and that they have the opportunity with almost every client to turn them into raving fans that will willingly part with their money in return for people who go the extra mile.
