Where Men Feel Comfortable
Appointments and walk-ins are greeted by a friendly, full time Saloon Coordinator. Each client is treated to outstanding customer service that includes a complimentary beverage, relaxing shampoo, complimentary shoeshine, and hot towel and mint for the perfect finish. Our commitment to outstanding customer service, combined with relaxing atmosphere found at every Hair Saloon, creates a premium haircut experience that has proven to be a successful business model.
A SMART & NOBLE INVESTMENT
Too many male concepts today trend toward the "men's spa" or "men's salon" atmosphere and service offerings. We understand that approach, but we keep it simple and more masculine, respecting tradition and standards that men appreciate.

It’s the reinvention of the neighborhood barbershop providing a premium brand of haircutting services that appeals to men of all ages.
We have chosen to focus on the core services that men prefer. While we do tweak our menu of services from time to time, having recently added stress-relieving neck and shoulder massages to our menu, our philosophy is keeping things simple. View our full services here.
We opened our first saloon in March 1997 in a suburb of St. Louis, MO.
We currently have 18 locations in operation and 7 units in development. We have 16 locations located in the Metropolitan St. Louis Area. One currently in Pittsburgh, PA, and one in Burlington, MA. Our goal is to continue to expand strategically with a focus in the the Midwest, but we are open to other markets throughout the U.S.
Our first franchise was sold in 2002 and we currently have 11 franchise locations along with our four company-owned saloons in operation. All current franchisees started as loyal customers and we are committed to identifying those individuals and groups who are ready to introduce the Hair Saloon brand in new markets. We believe in franchising as the most effective long-term growth strategy.
The total cost of opening a Hair Saloon, including the $35,000 franchise fee is $224,700 – $320,500. We have adopted a uniform store design that makes the most of the Saloon brand while providing a comfortable, premium experience for our guests. There’s no need for individual franchises to reinvent the wheel or reinterpret the brand. This has the distinct advantage of keeping costs and development time under control, while providing our customers with a consistent experience.
Our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) includes an Item 19 that provides key financial information to help you determine if Hair Saloon would be a good fit.
Once you are awarded a Hair Saloon franchise, it typically takes between five and seven months to open your saloon. Of course, site selection, lease negotiations, financing and construction can affect this timeline. We will work with you as you move through the steps to ensure opening day comes as quickly as possible.
