Headcase Barbers was established in 2000 leading a revival of male grooming with a clear vision to restore barber shops to the centre of local communities, focussing on the experience of first-class barbering. We are now the UK’s largest and fastest growing brand in barbering, starting 2019 with 40 locations open, or in final stages of preparation, and with an expectation to open at least 20 additional locations through the year. We also have Master Franchisees operating in South Africa, The Netherlands and Ireland and are seeking further international expansion.
The secret of our success is our ability to recruit talented men and women to our confident, self-styled, ‘Barber Army’. Providing a traditional customer experience, built on a relaxed and welcoming shop environment they enable us to achieve over £20 on average for a Headcase Cut versus the sector average of about £11, making a compelling business case for prospective franchise owners.
We make investment as easy as possible from search and selection of the ideal shop units, to recruitment of committed barbers, financial planning, marketing, business development, and operations. We support owners with Area Management visits and Business Reviews utilising our bespoke Epos system which allows detailed performance analysis and – uniquely to the sector – a ‘walk outs’ monitor to help rota planning in busy periods to reduce customer queue frustrations and maximise revenues.
New for 2019 is a strategic partnership with Morrison’s Supermarkets to locate Barber Pods within their 493 shop estate.
We look forward to helping you achieve your dream of business ownership.
