August – Salon Marketing Plan

Recruitment • Local Events •  Summer • Music Festivals


August is a very quiet month for national events in the UK and US – so be sure to look for what is happening in your town/city for ideas.

Some “local” events of note : Beatles Weekend in Liverpool, Reading Festival, Notting Hill Carnival. And in the UK there is a Bank Holiday on the 31st – so plan ahead to get the most of the long weekend and parties.

It is also the time of year when many salons are looking to recruit school leavers as trainees/apprentices – so click the left image above to get 10 images that  are the perfect size for facebook adverts but can also be used for posts.
