Winning the Global Franchise Award for Best Lifestyle Franchise shows 2021 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for Just Cuts in the United Kingdom.

Named the U.K.’s ‘Best New Franchise’ in 2020 by the Approved Franchise Association, Just Cuts has expanded rapidly to nine successful salons and counting in less than three years, going back to where it all began for the brand’s founder, Denis McFadden.

After owning and operating his own salon in London, Denis returned to Australia and used everything he learned to begin pioneering the Just Cuts brand 30 years ago in Sydney, which now sits at over 225 salons spread across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

So, what are some common reasons owners all over the world continue to choose Just Cuts today?


The Just Cuts business model has been designed and refined over 30 years of small business success with operational, ordering and marketing systems all built-in, and now completely online.

Just Cuts is a true digital brand with a range of support available online, including an e-learning platform, print marketing ordering system, retail reward program and point of service tools.

This proven model is why work-life balance continues to set Just Cuts salons a cut above the rest. In fact, the average Just Cuts owner spends less than 30 hours a week working on their business.

The model also makes it easy to manage businesses across multiple locations. More than 50 per cent of Just Cuts owners are multi-salon.


COVID was a challenge for the hair and beauty sector, so Just Cuts continued to innovate and adapt – regardless of what’s going on in the world, hair never stops growing, and neither does Just Cuts.

Just Cuts opened two new U.K. salons at Sunderland and Middlesbrough during the height of COVID, and successfully assisted owners with navigating the impact of COVID on their businesses.

“COVID remains a challenge for all retail franchises, but our support was phenomenal”

Just Cuts provided PPE free of charge for clients and created safety videos and clear signage. Just Cuts Middlesbrough owner Adele Varsamos believes the support from the Just Cuts Academy and her fellow owners was crucial during the height of COVID.

“COVID remains a challenge for all retail franchises, but our support was phenomenal,” said Adele. “Regular meetings with other owners gave me both encouragement and ideas for my salon. The collaboration within the Just Cuts owner community during COVID is proof of our strong culture.”


Just Cuts is a proven small business system where you don’t need to be a hairdresser to succeed.

The Just Cuts Academy provides all the support you need to recruit team leaders and stylists to service your clients – all you need is a passion for people and a desire to build your business.

The new, compact Kiosk salons require a lower initial investment to get up and running, providing the perfect choice for owners looking for an entry point to join the Just Cuts U.K. franchising family.
