Just Cuts™ was the brainchild of Denis McFadden, who, back in 1983, turned a simple idea into a business concept that would change the hairdressing industry forever. Always ahead of the curve, McFadden decided to run a promotion at his humble Sydney salon to boost business and offered all Clients a “no appointment, $6 Style Cuts™ cut”. The response was outstanding and the idea of Just Cuts™ was born.

In 1990, the first Just Cuts™ franchise opened in the suburb of Engadine, in the south of Sydney. And we’ve continued to expand ever since, with over 190 in Australia and New Zealand now open.

That’s an average of one new salon every six weeks! Just Cuts™ has grown to be the largest hairdressing company in the southern hemisphere, and we perform over 90,000 Style Cuts™ cuts each week. We believe that this success comes down to our franchise model, which has been tried, tested and refined over the past 26 years of business.


In 2013, we answered the calls of our Clients and launched JUSTICE Professional™ – a range of salon quality, paraben free haircare and styling products available exclusively in all our salons at a competitive, affordable price. Our line has something for everyone, including every day shampoos and conditioners, antidandruff and dry scalp treatments, toning products, nourishing leave-in treatments and a range of hair styling waxes and sprays. And this month we launched the brand new take home Hair Colour range.

We scoured the globe for the finest ingredients on offer and have consulted with hair experts worldwide to create a line of products made by hairdressers, for our Clients, so they can now experience a professional salon finish from the comfort of their homes.


With a long and successful history in the franchising sector, Just Cuts™ is well positioned to take the guesswork out of opening your own business. We provide our Franchise Owners with a proven, successful system that will guide you through every step of opening your salon - we’ve tried, tested and refined this system over 26 years of business in franchising – that’s why it just works and is continuing to work.

As a Franchisee, you’ll enjoy the ease of the Just Cuts™ business model, which has already been set up for you with operational, ordering and marketing systems all built into it. The model has also been fully digitalised with a range of support available online, including an e-learning platform, print marketing ordering system, retail reward program and Point of Service (POS) tools.

Our dedicated Academy Team will also guide and support you throughout the whole process of opening your salon, including training, pre-opening assistance, management advice, a comprehensive Operations Manual and a bespoke Grand Opening marketing campaign. On top of this, you’ll get all the ongoing support you need from the Team, who will provide you with any business, operational and marketing guidance that you need once we’ve got you up and running.

As a business owner, this means you don’t need to worry about how to best develop a system to ensure your Clients leave satisfied. You don’t need to worry about creating training programs for your team, or nailing down operational processes for accounts and stock inventory. All this is packaged up for you for you when you move into your salon, providing you with the fundamentals you need to get your business up and running smoothly.


The Just Cuts™ Kiosk salon is the latest innovation to traditional salon formats and designs. Designed as smaller compact sites, Kiosk salons are positioned in prominent, high foot traffic flow areas within shopping centres. They can also act as satellite sites to an existing salon.

All Kiosk salons are designed to the same high standards as regular Just Cuts™ salons, however with the added benefits of shorter term leases, plus they require less regular maintenance and upkeep. They also require a significantly lower initial investment from Franchise Owners.


At Just Cuts™, it’s all about you. We believe in making things easy, comfortable and convenient for all our Franchise Owners. Check out some of the benefits of becoming a Just Cuts™ Franchise Owner:
