YOU NEED TO BE THERE… #JustSaying #SalonSmartIRE

Ten seriously good reasons to attend Salon Smart Dublin

1. Get real, tried-and-tested ideas for your salon
Take inspiration from a host of salon owners, each with their own unique story. Find out how they’ve tackled the issues you’re struggling with, or get an important heads-up on what’s coming next. Trust us, this stuff is absolutely priceless.

2. See how you measure up
Equally, Salon Smart is as much about that little shiver of excitement when you’re listening to a presentation and you realise you’ve been doing it right all this time (and maybe even a little bit better than everyone else!)

3. Have fun
Yes, Salon Smart is all about business. But this event is not at all stuffy. This is a place where real salon owners take to the stage to share real experiences within their businesses – and occasionally, the tales are bloody funny. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy. (Plus, there are at least two tea breaks with CAKE!)

4. It’s all about the networking
You’ll meet loads of other salon owners, just like you and have plenty of opportunities to sit down, chat and share tips, advice and stories. So whether you come on your own or with a member of your team, we guarantee you’ll make new friends and contacts that will impact positively on your life for years to come.

5. See a brilliant mix of UK and Irish salon owners onstage
We’ve put together a line-up of speakers from both sides of the Irish Sea.

Representing Ireland – the social media-savvy Sabrina Hill of Koppers, the brilliant team builders Tony Heffernan and Danielle Kennedy of Lloyds Hair, the pioneering Dylan Bradshaw and the business heavyweights David Campbell of House of Colour, Mark O’Keeffe of Brown Sugar and Paul, Angie and Richard Dromgoole of Zeba Hair. Flying in from the UK – the trail-blazing Richard Phillipart of The Boutique Atelier; the campaigning colour specialist Casey Coleman of Chair Salons, and the globe-trotting session stylist/salon owner/brand creator partnership that is Paul Percival and Adam Reed of Percy & Reed.

Let’s listen to and learn from each other – we’re all in this together, after all.

6. Enjoy a good debate
We love a bit of audience participation at Salon Smart, so make sure you make yourself heard in our live debates and Q&A sessions.

7. Get your work/life balance in order
Are you getting everything you want or expect from your salon? Does it give you time for the other things you want in your life? Does it give you a fair return on the time, effort and money you invest in it? Do you love it like you used to? Listen as five hair professionals exploring our key theme of time – from maximising how it’s spent and freeing you up for the things you want to focus on, like team and training, to time-saving solutions and debating how to charge for it.

8. The Working Lunch
At Salon Smart, you’ll enjoy a lunch break like no other. t the Working Lunch session, a squad of top hair pros will be demonstrating new products and services from L’Oreal Professionnel – from the session styling must-haves in through to beautiful, bold colour work that will blow you away. You can also meet top salon and business experts and pick up even more invaluable business advice.

9. The Salon Smart goody bag
It’s packed with gifts from L’Oreal Professionnel and you’ll get a full set of speaker notes too, which is incredibly helpful. Pick one up as you leave…
