RUSH Hair Logo





Rush Hair was founded by entrepreneurs Andy Phouli and Stell Andrew after meeting at Hairdressing College, with a dream to create a group of salons offering beautiful hair at affordable prices. They opened the doors to their first Rush salon in Wimbledon in 1994, since then the company has grown from strength to strength, 20 years later there are now over 70 Rush salons nationwide.


"Our people are our product. If you’re thinking about franchising, before it works for me, it has to work for you"

– Andy Phouli, Rush Co-founder and Chairman.

British hair brand occupies major sites across central London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cambridge and Bristol. Rush are continuing to grow and are looking to open another 20 salons in the next year. Now is the time to join the Rush Hair movement.

Both Andy and Stell are still the driving force behind the Rush brand and take a personalised approach when going into business with all franchisees. Rush has won every major British Hair industry accolade and continues to strive for excellence.
