JustCuts Franchising - Our Team

Our Team

The Just Cuts Academy is located in Cronulla, Sydney NSW, Australia and is a support mechanism and contact centre for all Franchise Owners, Team Members and Clients.

As the largest hairdressing franchise in the Southern Hemisphere, in 2018 we made our first steps toward expanding to the Northern Hemisphere. We opened our first UK Salon at Just Cuts intu - Lakeside in Essex and we just recently celebrated the Grand Opening of the first Franchised UK Salon in early 2019 with more scheduled to open in the coming months.

Setting our sights on the UK didn’t slow down our growth at home. In 2018 we opened eleven brand new Salons across Australia and New Zealand with two additional Salons moving from Kiosk models to full in-line Salons, a great place to start if you’re looking at opening a franchise in a new location.

In 2018 we celebrated 20 years of support for the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) in Australia and raised over $17,562 through our annual Cut-a-Rama event. Since partnering with the RFDS, Just Cuts has donated over $400,000 to the cause, helping the RFDS of Australia provide extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency services to people living in rural and remote areas of Australia. This figure is made up from donations made by Clients, Stylists and Owners in salons across Australia and through various fundraising initiatives throughout the year.
