How to… build long-lasting success with 3∙6∙5

Do you want your salon to earn more money?

Do you want to recruit and retain the right team?

Do you want your salon to last in this competitive economy?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, then 3·6·5 can help. That is what it exists for.

The expert coaches have been helping hairdressers to solve the challenges within their businesses since 1982.

Simply put, 3∙6∙5 is subscription-based salon business coaching. Its goal is to provide you with powerful results-focused salon business education for your whole team.

3∙6∙5’s programme guides you through eight Business Builders, each a two-day course, with ever-evolving content. The aim of the programme is to support you with the right tools to tackle key challenges that businesses like yours often face on the high street, steering you towards a stronger, more profitable future.

The Business Builders are delivered by the 3·6·5 team and expert salon business coaches who have faced these challenges first-hand and overcome them within their own teams. The knowledgeable team can help you measure the reality of how your business is performing and coach you on how you can drive it forward.

3∙6∙5 is a membership club with personality; it’s not all about learning, although that’s a key part of it, it’s also about meeting like-minded people who face similar trials in their businesses, but who know that dealing with them is perfectly possible.

3∙6∙5 is spearheaded by Ken West, a 3∙6∙5 member since 1989

As an industry expert, Ken has a monthly column in Creative HEAD, is a regular speaker at Salon Smart and has shared his knowledge across a breadth of industry events and in salons, in both the UK and the US. Ken’s passion is to raise standards within the industry to ensure hairdressing is an appealing career choice for potential Future Professionals.

As a member of 3·6·5, you are allocated education days that you can use to journey through your core programme, or eight Business Builders. These eight Business Builders, or BBs as those in the know call them, form the framework of your business. 3∙6∙5 also hosts networking events and numerous specialist courses so that you can learn more about a desired area of focus e.g. Future Professionals, Manager Challenge and Reservations and Beyond, to name but a few.

As well as the main courses, 3·6·5 also hosts two inspiring events over the year to allow its members to come together, be inspired and get motivated for the months ahead. These are designed to be timely and focus on relevant subjects that could impact the future of your business.

With membership fees starting from just £146 +vat per month*, the only thing 3∙6∙5 doesn’t coach you on is how to cut hair.
