Regis Hair Salons Cut

Regis Hair Salons cuts 160 poorly performing locations

When the economy slows the first thing that gets cut from many families budgets are optional expenses for personal grooming. It is likely that women are cutting back on visits to hair salons, but I have not heard a lot hand wringing from my fellow hairdressers about empty appointment books. So I would not read much into this news.

Regis Hair Salon Corporation announced recently that they will close 160 poorly performing hair salons early in 2009. This is just a small percentage of Regis Hair Salons 8,500 company owned hair salons most of which are located in American malls.

Twenty of the closures are in Regis hair salons in the UK, 100 will be in malls and the balance will be in strip centers.

The hairdressers involved will be reassigned to other Regis hair salon locations. So if you have a favorite Regis hairdressers there is a good chance you’ll be able to stay with them at a new site.

The fact that the hairdressers are not being layed off makes me believe that this has less to do with the economy slowing down and is more of a correction of past management mistakes in choosing locations.
