Most hair salon businesses are sole traders – as well as thinking about cutting and styling hair, owners also have to concern themselves with recruiting and managing staff, marketing their business and being an accountant. We understand that owners are not going to have the time or inclination to even think about contacting different gas and electricity suppliers – but the good news is that Utility Bidder can do that for you. Our hairdressing customers tell Utility Bidder that their biggest energy outlay is of course electricity. Your hair business uses a lot of electricity – lighting, electrical equipment such as hairdryers, straighteners and stylers, heating, washing machines and dryers to name but a few. These are the key tools of your trade and you can’t do without them, and as well as changing suppliers, there are ways you can help yourself to keep those bills down.
Utility Bidder can help hair salons cut their energy bills – which are often a significant part of your business outlay.
An average local hairdresser consumes approximately 7,000 kWh of electricity every year. That amounts to an average annual bill of £1,097. Research shows that the most thriving hairdressers are those that have been established over a long time. Our award-winning business team will find out some basic information about your hair business – who are your suppliers and how much does your hair salon spend on gas and electricity every year. Then we contact numerous utility providers to find your hairdressing business a better deal. While your inclination may be to turn to the Big Six for your energy, Utility Bidder also work with numerous smaller and less well known energy providers to ensure we are getting the best deal for your hair salon. You can be assured that when we come back to you with our recommendations for your gas and electricity providers – we’ve really done our homework.
According to the National Hairdressers Federation there are around 41,000 hair and beauty businesses in the UK, with the majority small businesses turning over less than £99,000 and employing fewer than 10 people. In addition, hair salons are among the top ten list of most popular business starts ups.
Utility Bidder has a passion for helping small businesses like hairdressers and hair salons save money on their gas and electricity bills. With margins so tight in the hair business, every penny saved on utility bills is important to the success of your business. Therefore, it makes sense to look at ways you can reduce gas and electricity bills in your hair salon – one quick win is to consider switching your gas and electricity provider.
Paul Kay was fantastic in securing us a great deal and explaining everything in full. Thanks and would wholeheartedly recommended.
Excellent service from Kenny in the Manchester office, he worked hard to find the best price for me and explained everything along the way.
Will definitely use him again in the future and would recommend.
I spoke to Paul Kay this morning who in the space of 30 mins looks to have halved my salon electric bill, he was personable, knowledgeable and honest. The proof will be seeing if the bills actually reduce and if so I will leave another review but so far an excellent service
I dealt with Utility Bidder over the past couple of days, amazing service and prompt. Paul Kay gave excellent customer service! would highly reccomend.
Without a doubt utility bidder has saved my sanity. They have sorted months of going around in circles with a supplier in under a week.
I would highly recommend to everyone I know.
Had a lovely phone call from Connor this morning, he was very helpful, explained everything very clearing and all I had to do was agree to everything that was suggested and he done the rest! Very happy with the service
I have just worked with Alex from Utility Bidder to sort our electricity contract today. He has got us an excellent price for our charity and it has all been sorted in half an hour (possibly less!). He was extremely helpful. THANK YOU
Had a call from Alex York who within minutes had arranged a new electricity contract with a new supplier. He was extremely courteous, professional and friendly. Highly recommend.
Robert Johnson has just completed my renewal contract with my energy supplier. He was very helpful and very efficient. It’s the first time I have used Utility Bidder and I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them. Thank you for making it so easy.
Chances are your hair salon is comprised of a small team and so involve them in your quest to reduce energy costs. Ask them for ideas and suggestions and make it everyone’s responsibility to look at ways to shave pounds of your bills. Even a small business can have an environmental policy and indeed it’s all our responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint in any way we can. Make it clear that as well as saving money, you want to ensure your salon can shout about its green credentials.
While you can’t simply replace your electrical equipment with new gear right away – next time you do need to replace a piece of equipment from a hair dryer to a washing machine – do some research to find out which product has the best energy saving credentials. Most manufacturers now produce greener products and so make it a policy to buy them. It’s easy to leave electrical equipment on in the salon – but your environmental policy should make the point that if staff see something that is turned on but not being used – they should turn it off.
Using dryers for all those towels can cost big bucks but some salons have changed to biodegradable towels – they are certainly worth a try – and if you do – make a note of how much electricity you use for a week using dryers and then a week using the biodegradable towels.
Hairs salons use a lot of water and you may not be aware that now you can decide which provider you want to buy your water from – it doesn’t have to come from your local water company. Once again, Utility Bidder can help your hair salon find the best water supplier for your business and we will do all the hard work for you. In the meantime, it’s over to your staff again- only turn on water at the backwash when you are rinsing, not throughout the whole process. Mood lighting can really create an ambiance in your salon as well as being practical for your staff. However, if there is one part of the salon that is not in use – then turn off the lights in that section. Make sure unnecessary lights are turned off back of house and if you can, invest in sensory activated timers so that lights in toilets and cloakrooms only come on when somebody enters the room.
