2017 marks the 20th year in business for Hair Saloon, and it’s a year of expansion for the brand founded in St.Louis. The company is proud to announce two new stores opening this year with its newest operation located outside of the St. Louis market in Louisville, Kentucky. An additional store will open in Des Peres, Missouri at the intersection of Dougherty Ferry and Big Bend.
After opening 14 locations across the Greater St. Louis area, Hair Saloon is currently evaluating the awarding of additional franchise license in other markets. Founder and CEO, Tom Twellman Sr., has overseen the growth locally, and developed a sustainable business model for the company. “We saw a great deal of potential in the Louisville market to provide men with a premium haircut experience that has become the trademark of every Hair Saloon,” said Twellman. “As we’ve set forth on our vision to make Hair Saloon a national brand, we connected with a local entrepreneur who shared our vision and values, and who had the franchise-industry background to be a successful Hair Saloon franchisee.”
The Louisville Hair Saloon franchise is owned by Chad and Kelly Wright of Prestige Worldwide. “Hair Saloon’s operating history, strong brand statement, and customer service passion made them a natural fit for us,” said Chad. “We look forward to bringing the Hair Saloon experience to Louisville.”
The Wrights signed a multi-unit franchise agreement and are planning to open at least three Hair Saloons over the next few years.
