New Torbay salon concept pays homage to local hairdresser Matt Milford

Torbay Weekly

A brand-new salon rental business called Guest Salons has opened in honour of local hairdresser Matt Milford, who tragically passed away at the beginning of last year.

Guest Salons on Tor Hill Road, is a new concept in the hair and beauty sector, which is designed to provide inspiring, affordable and flexible workstation rentals for independent hairstylist and beauticians across the Torbay area.

Local hairdresser Matt who was a partner of the former salon of the same address named ‘Reborn’, died suddenly 18 months ago, aged just 26 years old.  

He left behind an army of friends, family and loyal clients who miss his vibrant personality, humour and incredible flair for style.

The new owners of Guest Salon hope to carry on the love and talent that Matt had for hairdressing in the new premises.

Heidi Daniell, owner of Guest Salons and Matt’s Aunt, said: “We wanted to come up with a new concept that Matt would have been proud to be a part of. Guest Salons creates multiple opportunities for those people who are as proud of their craft as he was.”

The streamlined hairdressing concept allows hair and beauty professionals to focus exclusively on their craft and clients, giving them the opportunity to develop both their personal and business skills without the overhead costs that come with running a business.

Heidi said: “We want our renters to have the opportunity to build their own clientele and to manage their own diaries. They choose their own services and products while working in an inspiring salon fit out.”

Renters have the opportunity to maximise their income potential through their all-inclusive rental packages, without the worries of endless bills. Their rental options include all utilities, daily supplies of freshly laundered client towels and gowns, quality shampoos and conditioners. Their flexible rental terms start from an hour at a time or for the whole week.

The rental also includes the opportunity for hairdressers to retail their own products, take complete control of their bookings and provides flexible scheduling options.
