“After opening and running Reigate for the last 6 years, I wanted to repeat the success. I’m so proud of what I have achieved there I know I can replicate it here in Dorking. I believe in the brand, all the support Rush offer their franchisees is second to none.”

– Nicola, Rush Reigate and Dorking Franchisee

HAIR AND BEAUTY – IT’S A GROWTH INDUSTRY

  • The Hair & Beauty industry is estimated to be worth £6.2 billion worldwide annually.
  • Women spend on average £28,000 on their hair in a lifetime.
  • On average customers visit a salon to have their haircut ever 6 weeks.
  • The Hair industry is a need not a want industry – hair does not stop growing in a recession.
