The aim of the summit is simple: we want to host an event with education, networking and festivities that brings salon owners and managers together with the greatest minds in the world in business, customer service, marketing and management. And well, there are few in the hair and beauty industry with as much experience to share as the charismatic and fascinating global vice-president of The Refinery… It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Marcus Allen to the Salon Owners Summit 2020 main stage lineup of speakers!

Third main stage speaker announced: Marcus Allen
Louisiana-born, Marcus Allen was the man behind the phenomenal growth of Urban Retreat in London’s famous Harrods — possibly the largest single-unit salon business in the world, with 220 staff, 11,000 services a month and an annual turnover of £12.5 million.
Think like a startup
In his time on stage at the Salon Owners Summit 2020, Marcus Allen will share his experience and knowledge on helping promote professionalism and pushing up profit margins.
A trained hairdresser, he has an incredible track record of creating hugely successful businesses from scratch. A founder staff member and manager of Paris Parker, he went on to work with the Neill Corporation before moving to the UK to launch the hugely successful Aveda Institution in Leeds and London.
He helped open the original Urban Retreat in Harvey Nichols, and oversaw its relocation to Harrods. He is now with the Refinery, which he has taken into the international arena.
