spacerPlease note; we are not a salon

Our founder and CEO, Ego Iwegbu-Daley, launched her first salon in 1999 in London's hottest location, Topshop Oxford Circus. She went on to open a further 5 salons in Selfridges&Co London, Manchester, Trafford and Birmingham and a stand-alone salon in Fulham London.

In 2006, along with business partner and friend, Margaret Mensah, Ego went on to establish Miss Salon - the one-stop shop for all things salon business!

From her own experience as a salon owner Ego realised that many salon owners are 'on their own' when faced with the realities of running a salon business... It's hard and financial and personal freedom can take a long time to achieve!

Miss Salon addresses the needs of the start-up and established salon owner through books, workshops, profit&loss and cash flow templates, staffing solutions, mentoring programmes and much more.

We can only list some of the more public work we have done but we have successfully assisted 100's of salon owners and start-ups over the years...

... It has been our pleasure.
