Why Choose A Red Hair Salon Franchise?

Red Hair runs three successful hairdressing salons in Rye, Hastings and Battle.  Stelios and Nesrin opened their first business in Hastings in 2006, launching their Battle salon a few years later, with their Rye hair salon opening in May 2019. 

In that time, they have built up a wealth of knowledge and entered into successful partnerships with leading brands such as ghd, Balmain, L’Oreal, Collections and Tigi.  Red Hair even sells its own brand of hair care, styling products and styling irons, wands and hairdryers.

We have won awards for best start-up business, as well as for our flair with hair, including regional finalists in the prestigious L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards and Young Colourist Award.

With the right person at the helm, a Red Hair Salon can be both lucrative and rewarding.
