About The #SalonRetailWeek Challenge

The #SalonRetailWeek goal: Clear your shelves and sell your retail by the close of business Saturday!

For seven days straight, participants received an email containing a retail task carefully crafted to get a product line off the shelves and into the hands of the people that need it the most: their clients. Specifically…

  1. They picked a product line.
  2. Followed seven daily retail tips.
  3. Re-ordered sold out stock.

The 2018 Edition: Some Results

The UK saw the biggest percentage of participation (55%), followed by USA (19%) and IRE (18%). 89 of these registrants signed up after the campaign kicked off. Based on the entries from the contest following the end of the challenge, #SalonRetailWeek has proven to increase sales from products sold vs previous week by on average 75%, with some salons peaking at a 95% increase!



Just like #30Days2Grow, the #SalonRetailWeek is a one-of-a-kind, free collaborative challenge for salon owners and their teams to grow their businesses. It aims at making you see the impact that consistently selling retail can have on your overall business goals and targets.

#SalonRetailWeek is now finished for 2018. However, if you’d like to be notified for the next edition, please click here to register

Who Can Participate?

Salon teams from all around the world! Participation in #SalonRetailWeek is open to both clients and non-clients of Phorest Salon Software. Teams don’t need salon software to participate.

Why Should You Take Part?

Every salon sells two things: services, and products. The thing is, most salons focus their time and attention on only one side of the game. This means that the biggest opportunity for your salon is within reach. And we are here to help you grasp it.

Will I Be Helped Along The Way?

Of course! We’re be there every step of the way, and you can also join our exclusive Facebook group to keep up-to-date with a community of over 1,450 salon owners and professionals!




Registration and participation in the #SalonRetailWeek Challenge are free – all you need is a little bit of drive, motivation and hunger for success! Give your retail game the boost that it deserves!
