Successful Business Coaching for Salons

DO YOU WANT your salon to GROW in this competitive economy?

DO YOU  WANT  to recruit and retain the RIGHT TEAM ?

DO YOU  WANT  your salon to EARN MORE MONEY ?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, then we can help. That is what we exist for. Our 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. Our goal is to provide you with powerful results-focused salon business education for your whole team.

As a part of the Salon Success family, we are passionate about the professional hairdressing industry, from products and tools to leading industry education, we know our stuff.
Our 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 our 3·6·5 team and expert business coaches; many of whom have faced these challenges first-hand and overcome them within their own teams. Our 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.
