But if you’re not in a financial position to lease and fit out a salon (or willing to take on the risk of a massive loan), what options are you left with?
Not earning the money you know your worth, despite your hard work
Not having control over your own schedule, meaning you can’t organise your week in a way that suits you
The admin of running a salon and looking after a team when you are at a stage in your life where you just want to enjoy your work & your time with clients
Missing out on career-building opportunities like fashion shows and photo shoots due to inflexible hours
The competitive, hierarchal, cut-throat environment often found in traditional salons
This is why we established Métier: a co working salon space for the dreamers and go-getters of the hair and beauty industry. It’s a space for talented creatives looking for somewhere to call home. Somewhere you can build your own business and be part of a likeminded community, without the stress and expense of fitting out a salon.
Tanita is the mastermind behind Métier. She’s a true powerhouse who works hard behind the scenes to help new members settle in and keep the salon running smoothly. Her true passion lies within helping people become the best they can be, giving people the best opportunity to thrive off of themselves.
Tanita started Métier because she saw that traditional coworking spaces were only designed to benefit freelancers who sit behind a computer. She wanted to give hair and beauty creatives the same opportunity and freedom that corporate workers have: the ability to build a freelance business from a collab space, with minimal hassle and overheads, focusing on the things that truly matter.
Roxanne is an accomplished hairdresser with 12+ years of experience. Although she’s worked in several salons during her time as a hairdresser, Roxanne has spent most of her career styling hair for the rich and famous within the lavish day spas of megayachts.
She’s currently based overseas, but is actively involved in Métier in the background. Roxanne plays an integral role in the business, always ensuring the salon and our processes are spot on.
