Today we meet Chris Grimley owner of Fusion Hair Co. to find out a little bit more about the business and why she loves being a local business owner!
Tell me a little bit about you and your business?
My business is Fusion Hair Co in Laceby it’s a small friendly salon that produces fabulous work because we do regular training and I also do session work which takes me all over the world!
What made you decide to start your business?
I started my business because I’m so passionate about hair and love making people look and feel great I love sharing my knowledge too
What do you love most about owning your own business?
I love the fact that I can drive my business in the direction I want it to go. I’m always looking to improve and so take business advice and coaching which helps a lot after all I’m a hairdresser first!
What do you least like about owning your own business?
You never really get a proper day off but I wouldn’t change it I love the challenge.
What do you have planned for your business in the future?
In the future I just want my salon to get better all the time and give our clients a great experience when they come to us and to get us on the local map a bit more through social media etc.
What advice would you give to someone wanting to star their own business but not knowing where to start?
Get a plan! Know what you want to achieve but be realistic.
What are you most proud of when it comes to your business?
I absolutely love when our clients leave feeling fab you just know that by sorting out someone’s crowning glory they are going to feel fabulous! We’ve had tears, hugs, cuddles it makes it all worth it. Also my team who really get it and always strive to do better, to improve themselves and work really hard
Do you think local businesses are well supported in NEL?
Not really I personally haven’t received any support?
How do you feel the business culture has changed in NEL?
I hope the public are realising if you don’t use your small businesses you will lose them! Which is a shame people work really hard to set things up but if no one comes they will fail! It’s about supporting a family not a corporate empire
