style. A successful stint at a top London Barber Shop in addition to a marketing
campaign with King of Shaves ignited his enthusiasm and desire to open his own

place to be seen for Northern Ireland's trend set and developed into a
revolutionary male grooming club offering a plethora of pioneering male grooming
services including Wet Shaving, Facials, Massage, Hair Removal, Hand and Foot
Grooming, Body Bronzing, Top Class Hairdressing and Hair Colouring.

the idea of a new generation of gentleman's club offering tailor made grooming &
lifestyle services to the high street. This would in turn pave the way for
development of a franchise network throughout the UK.

In 2008, four years after establishing the Fulham salon as a pilot franchise
test run by Ray Khandpur, Franchise Your Business was called in
to set up the franchise for this unique opportunity, unique because unlike some
other independent salons which have sprung up, Jason Shankey is the first to
establish a franchise network.
Total investment for the franchise is circa £100k with an earnings potential up
to £100,000 dependent on location. Franchisees do not require any hairdressing
experience but they do need management experience. Besides marketing and
promotion, franchisor support includes staff recruitment, trade testing and
training to ensure the continuation of existing high standards.
Every franchisee receives personal one-to-one training and will receive further
training and assistance in their own franchised salon by Ray and the Head Office
team. New openings will be supported by PR and innovative marketing campaigns.
